Reviewer: Thomas Pera from Beaverton, OR United States  
Every Nitecore product I've purchased is always incredible quality. First time buying from the website, the shipping was brutal. Took forever.

5 of 5 Very nice product May 2, 2022
Reviewer: Scott Baldwin from spring, TX United States  
Solid light.  Solid lock up on helmet.  Would purchase again, but will probably never need to replace it unless I lost it.

5 of 5 It's not just for heads it fits in molle April 27, 2022
Reviewer: Pink Helicopter from Washington  
I bought this with the plan of modifying the mount to attach to my external vest carrier. I was kinda surprised when it very nicely slipped in with no modification.  In this role it is simply amazing. The interface is one button and you can rapidly choose through ALL THE LUMENS, soft red, soft white, and a very minimal blue beacon.

5 of 5 Outstanding February 9, 2022
Reviewer: Mike from NH  
I use this headlamp daily for short periods of time. The primary light has a good balance of distant and wide light. The transition from distant to wide light is smooth, without any annoying spot for distant light. I mostly use the high setting (one below the highest "turbo" setting), and it is very bright at the high setting. This replaces a high quality 4 AAA battery headlamp and provides much brighter light than the old headlamp. The USC C charging is great. I really like the memory function. If you hold 1 sec to turn on, the previous brightness comes on. The strap is also secure and comfortable. It does get warm even in cold weather, but that's probably a good thing for battery life. It also gets warm while charging, but seems fine. If I could change one thing, the strap takes some time to adjust. If you wear with and without a warm hat, it's too much effort to adjust frequently.
