If you do your research you will find that this is probably one of the best bangs for your buck you can find, according to outdoor magazine and reviewer reviews based on the long battery life, lumens, water resistance and price for all the features. The key to any light, in my opinion, is to determine what you need based on what you are going to be doing. This light is great for what I need so it does everything I need it to do; but, it is not the only light in my bag. The light puts out a very nice even flood pattern in my opinion which is perfect for close to medium range use. On a more technical note, I have other high end lights that are $100+ plus lights that are rated at 15 lumens, 60 lum, 300 lum and 500 lum. This light claims a low of 20 lumens and a high of 80 lumens and based on some comparisons I would say that the Petzls low lumen rating is very close to the 20 lumens but the high rating of 80 lumen is over rated which could be one reason this light gets such good battery life when compared to other lights of similar lumens. I think the output of the high and low are less than actually claimed by the manufacturer when compared to my law enforcement grade 15 lumen and 60 lumen lights; the Petzl has observably less brightness especially when comparing the 80 lumen high setting of the Petzl to my 60 lumen light but not so much when comparing the low setting of it's claimed 20 lumens to the 15 lumen light. Of course, this is not overly scientific so take it for what it's worth. This is just intended to give you an idea of comparisons to help you decide if this light would work for your needs. So, if you want a trail light I would say you would need a different/stronger output light but if you want an all around good light with good durability at a great price for typical hands free use then I don't think you could go wrong with this light. And you never go wrong when you shop Zappos!

I have brought this headlamp around the world from Uganda during my Peace Corps service to Bhutan for research in a remote village. I find it so useful that I can't help but gift it to hosts and friends I meet on my journeys. This is my third petzl and my husband's second. It has saved us so many times in locations that don't have electricity. One of the best uses is for when I need to brush my teeth and require both hands to get through my toiletry kit etc. I have never needed a brighter light with lots of fancy settings. This headlamp fulfilled all of my needs. An essential for any traveler or camper.

An amazing light. The smart, detecting technology adjust to the depth of beam that is appropriate for the situation, whether you are reading a map, or looking down the trail. The only weather that I have seen that challenged the system was fog, it didn't know if it should be in flood or spot mode.

This light has been awesome. Very bright and projects well on trails at night. Reactive mode dims quickly for oncoming cars or other light sources.

A really great head lamp. Easy to use. Great for someone with a sight problem that needs extra light to see.
