Holy crap this head lamp is bright! – Flood-to-Throw Zooming Focusable Cree Q3-WC 130-Lumen LED Headlamp (3*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Did I say this light is bright? Nice construction on the light. I like the ability to adjust the light intensity. I don't have a meter to measure the lumens, but the output sure looks like 130 lumens to me. I like the simple on/off switch. I find it a pain having to toggle through multiple settings.
Cons:
If you want to get picky. The Lamp housing doesn't sit flush with the main body when in the retracted. The main pivot fitting on the lamp housing is a little loose so you will find it will have a little wobble to it.
Other:
I have a COAST REVOLUTION DUAL COLOR LED HEADLAMP LL1065, and I like this head lamp much better.
Note: this lamp will get toasty hot after a few minutes of use. I just threw in a fresh set of NiMh AAA (Sanyo Enaloop, yeah the real stuff) and going strong for over 1/2 hour. I'll see how long the batteries last.
Bottomline:
For the price I don't think you can go wrong.
