Versatile Triple LED Headlamp

The NITECORE NU17 is an ultra-lightweight USB rechargeable headlamp that provides hands-free capability for your daily tasks and outdoor activities.

It also features a high CRI reading light for up-close details and a red light, perfect for camping, backpacking, fishing, stargazing and more.

Easy to Use and Comfortable to Wear

The NU17 has a user-friendly two-button design where you can switch among the three lights, adjust brightness, and access special modes. The buttons are protected by a solid tab to prevent accidental activation. Built on an ultra-compact frame, the NITECORE NU17 weighs only 1.62 ounces. The headband has a built-in silicone strip that firmly secures that NU17 and diverts sweat away from your eyes. The headband is reflective to provide additional visibility to motorists, making it safe for night time walking, running, or jogging.

5 of 5 Nitecore NU17 November 29, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Chicago, IL United States  
Excellent, super light, and with great beam patterns on all 3 lights.
Two small points:
1) I am almost positive the headband goes behind the bracket not between it and the light like you instruct. Between messes with the hinge and you dont get the silicone strip against your skin.
2) My headband was a bit wonky. The big buckle faced inward. I monkeyed around and got it outward with the silicone inward, but now the logo/reflector on a section are also inward. Doesn't affect function, just my OCD. :)

5 of 5 Perfect. November 28, 2021
Reviewer: Freddie Hamilton from Lexington, KY United States  
Lightweight and simple. Has low settings for both the red and the white, and i can barely feel its there. Seamless shopping experience.

3 of 5 Light is good but case broke November 23, 2021
Reviewer: Jen from Philippines  
I've had this for over a year now. The light itself is good. Very bright for a small headlamp and its very lightweight you won't even feel it on your head. I rarely use it, however, a piece of it that's holding the lamp to make it tilt up and down is now broken. Now I can't use it as a headlamp because the lamp is detached now from the strap because of that broken piece.
