The strap is big enough for my giant head. I purchased it for my bike so the back red light is pretty useful. The zoom is good, and it doesn't zoom by itself when you are moving your head on the bike. The price is good too. The battery compartment looks waterproof.
The tilt is bad, mine doesn't work anymore, i used it 2 or 3 times. Mine is missing one O-ring so it isn't waterproof. After adding it i think everything will be ok, but still... The switch doesn't look very waterproof either.
I want to test this on a rainy day on my bike. You need to do some DIY after purchasing but, still it is a good headlamp.
Not the best lamp i have seen from DX, but still useful enough. I don't like very much the price of it because of the cons i've told you earlier. Anyway, with my large head it is pretty hard to find any headlamp, so this is the part that matters the most for me.
