Great headlamp for the money – Cree XR-E Q5 230LM 3-Mode White LED Headlamp (1 x 18650) Reviews

Good performance and ok quality. Light range is good for general use. 3 modes (medium, high, blinking). Nice adjustable tilt feature. Perfect for hiking, cross country skiing, biking etc.
A bit concerned about the quality of the battery case. No problems so far, but I am sort of expecting the locking mechanism to fail at some point. If it should break it seems easy enough to fix yourself so no real worries.
Performed flawlessly through several hours in typical Norwegian snowy weather at -15deg Celsius.
For the price its a no-brainer. I'm very happy with mine.
