I bought this and used this earlier in the year and was very happy with it in all ways. the fit was good, brightness, rear light etc. Now I have come to use it again it is not working or sometimes it dioes and then goes off. It's not reliable but I'd like to get another but don't want the same thing to happen again.
My second one... and I shall buy a third...
This is my second one of these, but only because my dear wife dropped the first from quite a height onto Dartmoor granite. It didn't physically break, but stopped working - and it was quite old and very, very well used.
I shall buy another to keep as a standby, and at the price you really cannot go wrong. It is excellent and has attracted comments from fellow walkers and runners. The red LED is a godsend, and the rear light is fantastic when you have a group of Beaver Scouts behind you. They know who to follow.
I use mine for walking mostly, but on slower runs it is also fine. For faster runs, or trail-running it isn't really bright enough. but then it is a fraction of the price and as so can be left in the bottom of a bag for when it may be needed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend these.
Ok - bought this 2 years ago.. but I have used it 10 times max around the house for emergency. Recently went to use it and found the battery cover plastic has split. Not impressed. Light power is decent.. but robust it is not. Made in China and cheap as chips = poor quality.
Great torch but lugs on battery pack break far too easily
This is a great torch for running at night, especially with capability to adjust the beam elevation.
However, like several other reviewers, my unit has suffered from broken lugs on the battery compartment which is very annoying. I now have to use a zip-tie to hold the battery unit together which is not really an ideal solution when it comes to changing batteries.
Unreliable Build Quality
Ive owned 4 of these now, and all four have had the same fault - battery compartment latch failure, and I can see from the reviews I'm not the only one. WHihc begs the question, why are you still selling them? Just recently with the dark nights ariving I fetched my most recent 2 out of the draw to find that the batter compartment had broken on both while they were just sat in a draw. Very poor. Id hate to be the one reaching for a gamma in a backpack at the top of a hill when its getting dark. Cheap they may be but after 4 its false economy. Ive bought a Black Diamond instead now.
Ordered this to use on my morning runs now that it is dark. Really like it. Feels comfortable and well balanced with the battery pack on the back which also helps it stay still. Light weight so I forget I am wearing it. Nice bright directional light so I can see clearly just in front of me but don't blind cars on the road. Front light easy to switch off whilst still running once the sun starts to come up and torch not needed 10/10
Good........but not great quality
I'm on my third one now. The light is great in that it is one of the few budget head torches with a true white light. It's bright and clear and easy to use, the only downside is the build quality, each of the ones I have owned the lid has snapped at the battery compartment on changing batteries. Not a great design it has to be said........ But then, at this price it is what it is !
I originally bought this for running and it works great, gives a great spread of light and at the speed i run doesn't really slow me down from what i would be running in daylight. However since purchasing it i have found the battery life great as i have been using it for many hours of DIY and for work. I shall be purchasing another new one for the sole purpose of running again now the nights are drawing in.
Bought 2 of these a few years ago....great torches..only problem is you need to take care with the battery cover lugs...but I still love them!
Life savingly good
Awesome head torch, multi light choices help when visibility is at zero cant thank this torch enough i'd recommend it to anyone and everyone, great battery life too.
