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

Pros:
Great small lamp, with very good light output. Flood to throw mechanism works very well. Low the 18650 battery and charger plug to quickly charge battery without need to remove battery from lamp.
Cons:
- Elastic strap are build for small head, I need to stretch my with hand to put it on head
- Tilt mechanism is not good, lamp is falling down when you shake it and plastic peace will snap very quickly
- Plastic housing is not water tight
Other:
I recommend replacing elastic strap as this is unpleasant for medium size head. Charging set is good but I think it will be better to use some commercial charger.
Bottomline:
If you need small lamp for some medium cycling in forest, or running in dark, this is very good item. For some extreme riding I recommend light with wider light beam and higher light level.
