Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
-For starters, it´s really bright and you can see things far far away.
-It has a wide light area with bright spot in the middle so you can look futher ahead for example going out with your dogs and you want to see are there ohter dogs or animals near, you use the brigt spot to look further and the rest to see anything closeup.
-Easy to use
-Good batterylife compared to many other same type LED lights (over few hours at max)
Cons:
-Your forehead gets sweaty under the light
-Middle battery is hard to get out with just fingers.
-The spot in the middle is almost too brigth in some weather because it can be blingin when lookin close.
-Uses AAA-batteries that are pricier.
-Straps are bit too short for european heads.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good light for anyone who likes goin outdoors. I also use it for small works at home and precision work. Only real gripes that I have is the straps and pricy batteries.
