Head lamp – XML-T6 "1050LM" 3-Mode White LED Bicycle Bike Light (4 x 18650) Reviews

Pros:
Very light and powerful light source.
Cons:
The cone of light is too narrow. It is not good for MTB riding in the woods since you have to move around your head to light the whole track up.
Other:
When I received the lamp one of the surface mounted conductors where broken and the spool was loose in one end so I had to do some welding to get it to work. Therefore I have thoughts about the quality. The lamp is sealed with O-rings but in the hole for the power cable there is no sealing and therefore water can enter the lamp housing.
Bottomline:
If you need a light to go MTB riding in the woods I would choose a lamp with a wider light cone.
