This popped up in my newsfeed so I knew my husband had probably been looking at it. I also know he's a cheapskate who likes to shop at the Dollar Store so I wasn't at all worried that he had already bought it for himself, so I thought I would surprise him. Just a little gift for hunting season. He was like a kid at Christmas! He opened it up and started looking for batteries. You need AAA, by the way, and thank the Lord I had some. He went down the hall to the spare bedroom that has blackout curtains and shut the door with the lights off. It was so bright that I could see the light shining out from under the door onto the hall floor. If I didn't know what was going on in there, I would have thought maybe some kind of interdimensional portal had opened up in the bedroom and aliens were about to walk through the door. Anyway, my husband came running out of the bedroom and hollered for our teenage son to come and see! Then they both went in there and shut the door and there was that bright light again. I will probably never get to use it, but it definitely works as advertised. I plan on buying another one.
It's nice and bright but also light and not at all cumbersome.
I ordered 2 of these headlamps for my husband and son-in-law. The fit is comfortable and adjustable. The lamp is bright and features a wide illumination field which is so much better than their old headlamps. Shipping was easy and quick. I will recommend this headlamp to my friends!
Like wide view
The light is badass
I'm looking forward to using it on the Appalachian Trail over the summer
Amazing and light weight it works as advertised definitely the most comfortable head lamp I've ever owned... I actually ordered 3 more when I received the first one.
great light works real good
Great light for general use. Not a spotlight like a typical headlamp, but the broad area it lights is very helpful for a variety of tasks. Does not light up any one area super bright, so I wouldn't use it for distance, but great for all other uses. As a guy who dinks around outside at night on a regular basis, I find it very useful.
Great light spread that encompasses a huge range. The only drawback is the loose switch on the side. It can get pressed in your pack easily. Got to the campsite and it had been on for a good while during the day
Great product highly recommended
This headlight has surpassed expectations. It has a wide illumination area and is very comfortable. I do not wear a helmet during use but do wear a respirator. The LED unit does not interfere with the fit or function of the mask.
My only complaint is that the ON/OFF button is extremely difficult to work when I have gloves on. The button is almost flat, which makes bare fingers necessary to provide enough force to engage. Taking gloves on and off in an attic is problematic and is simply a hassle.
I have recommended to several other professionals, who have purchased. Will be buying more in the future.
I use headlamp on a regular basis, and this one blows them all out of the water! The area of light that is illuminated is huge and the LED’s make night look like day. Although the battery pack can feel heavy on the back after a few hours, it’s well worth the extensive amount of light it creates. All together an awesome product!

Does actually spread good lighting in the area, I would like that it were a bit brighter, but it's still very good.
It’s one thing to see a slick ad for a headlamp innovation; quite a different experience to try on the product and feel like you are starring in the slick advertisement. This wrap around led headlamp is everything they said it would be. It is bright, but not blinding, wide angle but strong in front as well, and comfortable fit, both on the head or over a knit cap.
What the developers don’t know is I also use it for added light in fly tying, and slipped it on when the power went out at the house. Stop looking for a good head lamp and buy this one. I bought two; One in my camp gear and one in the truck. I do recommend keeping it warm for reduced battery drain.
I live on a ranch so it comes in handy almost every day it's the batteries I have to contend with now how about a rechargeable one.
Received the headlamp within the promised shipping time. It is comfortable to wear and the simple on and off switch keeps you from clicking though multiple light functions which I really appreciate. The only reason I took a star away from it was it wasn't quite as bright as I would have liked it, but, it does a nice job lighting up my immediate work space which is really what I bought it for. The extra brightness would be nice for those times where we lose power or for being in a large dark spaces or outdoors at night. Overall I am pleased with my purchase so far.
I was expecting a bright light, but this light is exceptional for nighttime bicycle riding, walking, snowplowing, working where you need light, it is just super.
Very comfortable and very bright. Works really well.
It projects better ligths but is not as good as a flash light but it is handy
This head light is different from most in that it is not a beam of light but a broad beam of light. It is just a different way of thinking of your headlight. Great for short to midrange distance.
Looked like a respectable idea, so I had to try it. In North Idaho, we spend a lot of hours in the winter darkness, so a good headlamp is a necessity. I this out the other evening and was seriously impressed with the broadness of the light. I was out plowing snow on my 4 wheeler, so headlights are not very effective, especially when the plow is up, and backing up is another story. This headlamp helped with both, especially backing up since turning around bundled up against the cold is harder, so the broad beam was helpful. I'm recommending this to all my friends.
Exactly as advertised. Got a set for myself, brother and father. We all love them!
Nice bright light need another one for my tackle box
It's a great design although I thought it would be brighter. Other than that I love it..
Easy ordering and great product, does the job.
I detail cars for a living and this is a lifesaver bc there aren't any side lights in my shop. No more struggling with flashlights or bulky plug in lights.
Very nice product well built the only problem is that the screw was missing but that's ok.
Easy to wear with a hat. Illuminates well.
Very bright underneath my car I feel like the Illuminati
LOVE THIS THING!! I am a flashlight geek and have a few other headlamps. This really does give a nice wide line of sight as wide as you can see with your eyes, well balanced light as well more of a pure white spectrum! I would say useable light range 10 feet beyond that it will light up some but not massively.
Perfect product for what I need!
I work in construction ... Currently I put self-leveling cement on the floor of buildings and warehouses, and it is an ideal product to make a control of the leveling of ups and downs in order, before delivering to the customer.
Great. I ordered clips to hold it on hard hat. Only needed 3. Light shines brightest at working area, brim does not block
My boyfriend loves this thing for evening fishing trips! Can’t wait to use it for camping, too.
Does what it was designed to do. Not your average headlight. If you're looking for a light to beam in a specific or direct area then this is NOT it. This scatters over a wide area. I can see it working for persons doing close up jobs with very fine objects like a hobbyist.etc. The head band is comfortable. Finding the light switch takes some getting used to. Many give a negative review because they expect it to beam in a specific area like a regular headlight. Works fine for me for what I need it for. Will see how it holds up overtime.
It works as advertised
This is fabulous! For setting up tents after dark to doing repairs after dark this is the head lamp to get
Very good general light output from this headlamp. Works very well for up close work or general area lighting. The batteries last about a week of twice a day, 25 minutes per use.
I've had two or three previous LED head lamps and this is by far the best of the bunch. As other reviewers have noted, the width of the lit area is much greater than with previous head lamps and quite bright. In fact, that is one of the minor issues I mentioned in the headline, it might be a bit too bright. For the person wearing the lamp, it's not much of an issue and usually a plus, but as soon as you turn and look someone else in the face, they shield their eyes and say bad things about you :-). It does have a switch with a high and a low light setting (and off), but it's not that easy to use the switch and, frankly, there's not much difference between the high and low setting.
Despite of these issues, I bought myself a second one for the car and one for each of the family.
I bought this for my husband to use when we grill in the winter months. We've also used it in the house for home improvement projects. The led lights are super bright. It was a great deal.
SO much light!
Excellent for nighttime activities! Originally purchased for walking a dog, but will use for many more things. Very bright, comfortable and lightweight. Would highly recommend!
I just feel sorry for not seeing this product before. I'm buying again.
I confess. I bought this for a gift, but when I tried it, I made it my own present. :-) Great for a night reading light when I'm reading print books in bed. The light is strong enough that it can certainly be used for lighting the walkway at night, too.
This is hands down one of the best headlamps you can get! It is comfortable as the weight is in the back.
There's a little switch on the battery pack that can switch off when you tuck it in the headband; both need to be on to work. As long as you're aware of this you'll find this casts a wide and bright light. not as bulky as some other headlamps.
I really like it because of the very wide field of vision. I totally recommend it. I bought it originally for my wife's early morning runs, but I've stolen it a couple times to install lighting when I've switched the power off.
It works as expected. Its bright enough for all kinds of uses, freeing my hands from having to hold a flashlight. Only downside is the switch... I can't find the right place to press by feel. I keep pressing the wrong location and nothing happens so I have to fiddle around to find exactly the right place to press. So, 4 stars. Otherwise, excellent!
I bought this as a gift for my friend and ended up getting one for myself! It's super helpful for walking your dog outside in the dark. I've worn it inside as well, and it does a phenomenal job at lighting up entire rooms. The battery pack seems big but is not actually that heavy - when it's on, you don't really notice the weight!
1. LEDs are very bright
2. Battery pack tucks in and doesn't affect my running.
3. Great build quality.
4. Fits comfortably and is secure.
5. Great for working on the car or around the house.
1. None so far
2. None so far
3. My niece made fun of me
Light is bright
This head lamp is an awesome addition to one's lighting options. The headband is comfortable and has plenty of room for adjustment from small to large. Once the batteries are installed, just switch the battery pack on and stow it in the elastic sleeve. Now the light is controlled by the push-button control. It has high and low settings. For times when the spotlight of a typical headlamp isn't quite right, this broad-cast lamp an awesome option.
This head lamp is the perfect light for working under my cars . Now,don't use a cumbersome trouble light , trying to figure out how to hang it to get the right light on what I'm working on. Not a pin point light ,either so your not moving your head all around to get the to focus on what your working on. Perfect. The batteries that it uses are easy to purchase anywhere also ( working with same batteries since purchased).
Great for winter night running. Very bright and fits like a headband. Not heavy or bulky like other headlamps.
Lightweight, comfortable, and lights up the entire visual arc in front of you quite brightly. Perfect if youre exploing an old house or a cave at night -- much more effective in giving you "natural" lighting than you'd get from even a broad-beamed flashlight. I haven't tried it outside yet, and my guess is that its effectiveness will diminish rapidly beyond 30 or 40 feet, but meanwhile EVERYTHING you are looking at while wearing this will be lit up with the light moving instantly with you head direction as you spin around to check out a noise or "stick your head in" to check out a new area.
It doesn't have the same "ultra-blinding" effect that a beam flashlight can have if it catches you in your eyes, and this is certainly an advantage if you're in a group. Not sure one whether it would be good as a bicycle helmet light because it's unusual enough that it might serve to distract a driver rather than simply alert him. I don't drive though, so I can't claim any expertise that way.
I'd highly recommend it for camping or for wandering around the basement after a fuse blows, etc.
Brighter than i thought it would be. Very wide light
Very bright! Perfect for getting to the deer stand
This thing is not comfortable and it eats batteries quickly (using rechargeable so it's not too bad) and it doesn't light up the world like the photos show... but.... damn is it handy.
Having the light just go 'everywhere' at the same time makes it very easy to work in awkward spots (wiring closets, under the car, in the attic, etc). You don't even notice the light is really 'on', there is no hot spot in the middle like a normal head lamp, you can just see everything around you. Often I think "oh, I don't really need the light it's not doing anything" and then turn it off and suddenly it's all dark. Its doing more than I think and just being able to look around naturally without moving your head to move the light lulls you into thinking it's not doing much.
I wouldn't want this for my only headlamp, but for doing project work in dark spaces it's pretty amazing and is my go-to headlamp. Just keep a 2nd set of batteries on the charger.... you'll need them. As my friend says "physics sucks" and there is no getting around having 20 LEDs lit up all the time.
Get one, you'll like it.
nice bright and lightweight lighted headband. high-low-off settings. battery pack is in the back to offset the weight of lights. headband is elastic and adjustable.
since this isn't focused you'll get a good spread of light, but it won't go out as far as headbands with focused LEDs. depending on your purpose this may or may not work for you. great for lighting up a few feet ahead of you on a wooded path, or out at night with the dogs, but you aren't going to see 100' away or deep in the woods. oncoming cars, people, aliens, etc. will definitely see you coming though.
construction seems good. plastic parts are molded. electrical cables have nice braided cover. LEDs encased in plastic and thoroughly stitched onto the headband. LEDs should last a long time. unit isn't waterproof and is not advertised to be.
if you need a good general purpose, inexpensive head light and don't require a focused beam, then this is probably a good light for you. i'm happy with my purchase and can recommend this light.
I can't say if the lumen claim is accurate or not but it's a nice close=in area light. When I used it for work on a circuit breaker box, I was wishing I had a focused beam. When I used this light to do some outdoor non-detailed work I was thinking this is the bomb. It does cause glare as others have stated but I didn't find it too annoying. I think this would be perfect for nighttime roadside auto troubles, though I hope I don't have to find out...
Love this light. Very bright. Great for hands free use. Can walk around in pitch black conditions and see without difficulty at all. Very light and comfortable to wear. Will definitely buy more of them.
