    Pros:

    Very bright compared to other 53, 50, etc led headlamps.
    Comfortable
    Solid headband
    Doesn't move around a lot

    Cons:

    Required fixing to get to work

    (AA batteries weren't making contact with the metal on the + side)

    OtherThoughts:

    I ordered two of these headlamps, and out of the box neither worked. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with them until I looked in the battery bay. The plastic pieces to hold each battery in place were preventing the batteries from making contact with the metal on the + side.

    To fix the problem, I folded up some small squares of tinfoil. Then using a thin knife, I pried away the metal + connectors so that I could slide the small tinfoil square behind the connector. This pushed the connector out more and allowed the battery to touch the metal and they worked :)

    Bottomline:

    Excellent headlamps even though they need a little modification when they arrive in the mail. They are far brighter than the other 50 or 53 led headlamps on the site.

    I recommend them.
