Great headlamp but needs a better strap – High Power 3-Mode White Light Zoom Headlamp - Black (3*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The lamp is very good with a bright setting a slightly dimmer setting and a flash setting. The unit itself is reasonably robust and has held up well having been used indoors for reading at night and also worn while doing cabling work underneath the house.
Cons:
The attached strap needs to be wider as it constantly falls out of the slots. In the end I abandoned the three strap approach it was supplied with and only used the one band that wraps around my head and it works better. Ideally the strap should be replaced.
Other:
It is probably not waterproof but I imagine it is reasonably water resistant.
Bottomline:
Great headlamp, very bright, but do not count on using the included headstrap.
