Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
+ Not very expensive + Uses a single AA battery + Comes with a pouch + Focusable beam + Side switch is easily accessible
- Beam is not very floody, even at the largest setting - When you focus too much the center has a square pattern, you can even distinct the shape of the emitter (3 segments, probably a XP-E) - The headband doesn't maintain very well the flashlight, when you're static it's ok, but if you walk or run it'll be prone to bounce up and down - Blueish tint
Beam is mostly throw, with a lot of circular rings visible, even at the floodier setting.
There's not much choice on DX for single AA headlamps. This one could have been a good one, alas the beam is not very pleasant, and the stability of the body will be a problem in most situations.
