Works very well. Small and handy. Good build quality. Easy to adjust brightness (on the top of the battery pack). Easy to adjust focus (on the bottom of the lamp). Nice on/off button (on the top of the lamp). The lamp can tilt 30°, 60° and 90° down. The back of the battery pack is soft rubber. A little hard to get off, easy to get on, and doesn't break easily. Uses standard AAA batteries (alkaline or Ni-MH).
Focus could be a little better. It would be nice if the battery pack had metal reinforcement where the headband is connected to it. Plastic can break when the going gets tough.
A Q5 or R2 emitter version with improved focus would rock! 130 lm is nice, but 230 lm is even better :o) - and with the adjustable brightness, you could turn it down a little when "super bright" was not necessary and get a decent battery lifespan.
This is a sweet little lamp which works very well in the field. It's a little pricey compared to many of the other DX-headlamps, but both the adjustable focus and adjustable brightness is worth it, I think.
