5 of 5 Nitecore HC68 headlampHNiCeat light! April 26, 2023
Reviewer: Douglas Houston from Central Point, OR United States  
Just what I was looking for in this headlamp.  Very bright spotlight with a lot of range but with an adjustable floodlight.   I have three other Nitecore flashlights and the quality is great at a very economical price.

5 of 5 Latest HC 68 headlamp March 19, 2023
Reviewer: malcolm l kam from Honolulu, HI United States  
time to get another headlamp, I bought the latest. I like the white light it gives off. Nitecore has good white light ones. Use for house attics and working under houses and on late night farm work. NiteCore is just about top of the line headlamps.
