Pros:
Lamp is light, head bands are strong and hold lamp firmly on head. It has a sealed lamp housing, protected from water. Convenient in handling, easy to wear. Good for the price. I'll use it while cycling and mountain biking. Also suitable for using it as safety/distress light during road trips with bicycle.
Cons:
No focusing. Low quality of soldering, may be I'll need to resolder wires in battery housing.
Other:
It would be good to have a focus function here, but it will cost more. And DX already have other items with slightly higher price. I'll going to order them for testing.
Bottomline:
Limited tilting of lamp, impossible to point directly down.
