Nice lamp but not perfect – Cree XR-E Q5 230LM 3-Mode White LED Headlamp (1 x 18650) Reviews

Pros:
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
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
Nice light for running and skiing if it's fits your head.
