For several months now I have wanted to get a headlamp so I could either do some night hikes or just start my hikes earlier than I normally do. I went to Amazon and google just to do some research and I decided that the LED Waterproof Headlamp Flashlight, Rechargeable Zoomable Headlamps Adjustable Cree T6 Headlight for Camping Hiking Hunting Running Working Outdoor Sports with 18650 Batteries,Charger and USB Cable was the best choice for what I am looking to do.
At $16.88, the headlamp is basically everything that it was advertised to be. I was actually surprised at how bright the lamp is and how well it illuminated the trail and surrounding woods. In regards to the fit, after about 15 minutes of wearing the lamp, I didn’t even notice that I had it on. When I bent over to tie my boots or open my pack, it stayed securely on my head.
Instead of getting into all of the nuts and bolts of this headlamp, I have included the description below that was on Amazon. Overall, it was definitely worth the money. This will open up an entirely new world of hiking!
