5 of 5 Hc65 v2 Headlamp February 13, 2024
Reviewer: Richard Powers from Salt Lake City, UT United States  
Nitecore is a brand that keeps getting slept on. I have used quite a few of the top flashlight brands (including those with military contracts ND are the golden standard). Nitecore and one other brand are the only two that I have never had issues with. I have a p10 (one of the original ones) that I lost for years. I recently found it in the mud in the field, I guess I dropped it years ago and it's been there the whole time. I washed it off, and it somehow turned on just fine. The lights produced by Nitecore truly are top notch.
