5 of 5 Great headlamp! December 29, 2020
Reviewer: James Miyake from Honolulu, HI United States  
Awesome headlamp with adjustable brightness levels. Finally hands free to do my work without having to hold a flashlight in one hand and fumbling around with my other hand trying to accomplish 2-hand tasks at work. Easy to use and adjust brightness levels.

4 of 5 HC65M November 23, 2020
Reviewer: Pat Grier from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Happy to have a light, so well mounted to my night vision shroud on my bump helmet.
Light takes practice with all its modes.
Now I want a soft cap that uses this mount.

I purchased the HC65M but have yet to try it out. I still do not know how to mount it to my hard hat!
