Nice headlamp for the money. The light is bright enough for running trails in the dark and for cross country skiing. Runtime is of coures depended on batteries used. I use SKU 20392 and they run for more than 1.5hour on max, in minus 10 degree C. Charger works well
Can not get it to ftt comfortably on my head. The shape of the battery box does not match the shape of my head. The overhead strap is a little bit to short. Would like to be able to adjust then lamp a little bit more down then possible.
Order it in aug this year and got the delivery in end of nov. During that time lamps with XML T6 diod and integrated battery have been available on DX. I woold by one of them if I ordered today.
Nice light for running and skiing if it's fits your head.
