Operation Instruction for the HL60R


Press and hold the side switch for 0.5 seconds to turn ON/OFF the headlamp.

HL60R Output Selection

With the lamp on, click the switch to cycle through Turbo→Red light→Eco→Low→Mid→High.

Intelligent Memory Circuit

The headlamp remembers the last-used brightness level, the next time it is turned on, it will recall that previously used brightness level.

Battery Level Indicator

Click the switch when the lamp is off, the battery indicator will be on for three seconds:

  • White LED flashes: more than 70% remaining
  • White LED and two Red LEDs flash alternately: 30% – 70%
  • Two Red LEDs flash: less than 30% remaining.

Low-voltage Warning

With the lamp on, the two red LEDs will flash at 1Hz when battery capacity is less than 20%. If red constant-on is being used, then the two red LEDs will flash. If white light is being used, then the two red LEDs will flash along with the white light lit on. Please recharge the lamp or change battery ASAP when warning occurs.

Charging the HL60R USB Rechargeable Headlamp

  1. Plug the USB port of the charging cable into any USB power supplier, then uncover the anti-dust cap, plug the Micro USB port of the charging cable into the charging port of the headlamp.
  2. The two red LEDs will flash simultaneously at 0.5Hz when in charging process. The normal charging time of the Fenix ARB-L18-2600 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery is about four hours. The two red LEDs will be constant-on when charging is completely done.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to plug the anti-dust cap cover.
  4. Please recharge a stored headlamp every four months to maintain optimum performance of the battery.

Battery Replacement

Unscrew the battery cap to insert the battery with the correct directions of the battery anode, screw the battery cap back on.

Headlamp Strap Assembling

Notice: The headlamp strap is factory default assembled.

  1. Slide the buckle to adjust the headband length as wanted for size.
  2. First fasten the headband to the headlamp holder, and then attach the headband to the headlamp holder and top headband mount for additional stability.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the headlamp and will void the warranty.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the performance of the headlamp as dirty contacts may cause the headlamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:

Reason A: The batteries need replacing.
Solution: Replace batteries (please confirm the correct installation of anode and cathode).

Reason B: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are dirty.
Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol.

If the above methods don’t work, please refer to the warranty policy before contacting your authorized distributor.

  3. Bill (verified owner)

    I have NEVER bought ANYTHING from Fenix with which I was less than 100% satisfied. Indeed, their flashlights, bike lights, head lamps, lanterns are mini-works of art that are also beautifully functional pieces of hardware. 100% pleased. Know many companies you can say THAT about? Me, either!

  4. Steven (verified owner)

    You get what you pay for. Quality unit.

  5. Jeff Johnson (verified owner)

    I love this headlamp.

  6. Bo

    I won’t ever buy any other headlamp. If I need to buy another one, I’ll buy the same one. Impressed is an understatement. I’ve been through my share of headlamps, so this next analogy is appropriate. I have found my forever home!

  7. Christopher S. (verified owner)

    All my hunt partners were cussing me out for shining in their eyes! Haha! Seriously, I made them look like chumps with my brightness!

  8. Matt Doughten

    The light works very well. I love having an 18650 style headlamp where I can swap the battery and be back up in running if I am in a heavy use case. Not giving it a 5 star for the following reason, namely the control interface of just a single button. If you short press the button it flashes the white light (utterly useless feature), if you long press it is turned on at your last brightness. The next short press changes the brightness, from dim to full bright (pretty freaking bright) and then last is the red light. I wish that you could skip or have a feature to go straight to red light. Typically red light is used to save your eyes at night, but when you have to switch through all of the brightness settings including the full bright it tends to flash your eyes out even if you have your palm over the light.

    Overall still a good light, works very well. Single 18650 lasts 3-4hrs of continuous use (time varies with brightness setting), with the ability to hot swap rechargeable batteries. Just wish there was a separate red light button to avoid stepping through all the white light and the useless flash feature was removed.

    • Dianne

      Hi Matt. Please note that when you do the short press, that’s checking the battery level. The flash is not a “useless feature”, it is telling you how much battery you have left:

      White LED flashes: more than 70% remaining
      White LED and two Red LEDs flash alternately: 30% – 70%
      Two Red LEDs flash: less than 30% remaining

      We have already mentioned to the factory that it would be ideal to have the lights be able to go directly to red mode.

    Have a team of four guys, they love them. Light weight, durable, good battery life… the camo.

  10. Rich Schreckengost (verified owner)

    The build quality is excellent. A very well made product. That’s the only reason why it gets 3 stars. I’m not sure this is really a 950 lumen headlamp. Comparing it to another brands 400 lumen headlamp that I planned to replace with this one, it fails miserably. The 400 lumen headlamp that I have is much brighter and casts further than this one. At full power the beam more or less disappears when compared to my other one.

    • Dianne

      I will have someone from warranty contact you about that.

  11. Tyler Carroll (verified owner)

    Exceeded my expectations. Seems very durable and rugged and not too heavy. The way the light clicks into position keeps it right where you need it. Awesome light!

  27. Jason (verified owner)

    One of the brightest headlamps that I have ever used, while still maintaining the ability to save my night vision with red light. No more fumbling for replacement AAAs, this is rechargeable! The only down side is having to cycle through modes so you might initially have whitelight before red depending upon your last usage. I separate button of mode control similar to Petzl would be nice.

  37. Connor S. (verified owner)

    This thing lights up the trail like it’s mid afternoon when I take the puppies for walks. You can easily see 100m through the woods with it.

    I will be using this for camping and hunting. This thing would be AWESOME for bike riding too! It really lights up the way well.

    It’s very comfortable and the battery lasted a long time.

    The different light settings are easy to use and very good light variations. From red light to reading to pretty much turning on the sun, this thing rocks!

  38. Anonymous (verified owner)

    So far this is a great headlamp. Very substantial and puts out a great amount of light for outdoor projects and hiking in the dark. Great for reading in the dark too on the lowest setting. Very glad to have this product available for a wide variety of lighting purposes.

  45. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I needed a headlamp for running and hiking that would keep water out, light enough, and use 18650 batteries which I have for other things. This headlamp delivers and also has great brightness and run time. The beam pattern gives enough width for close while still throwing a very good distance. Brightest setting is very bright. Cars flash me if I use it so I stick to setting 2-3 for runs. I highly recommend

  46. Allen F. (verified owner)

    Red LEDs could be brighter, but the white light is a torcher.

  47. Karen (verified owner)

    I have bought 6 lights for family. I kept 2 for my self, it seemed that no matter where I carried the light it was in the wrong place when I really need it. I utilize the 5 levels of light a lot. Too much light is as bad as too little.

    So far, I’ve used this headlamp for bow hunting, and it works extremely well. I’m looking forward to using this snowshoeing too.

  52. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very nice BRIGHT light! A little heavier than I expected with the battery upfront but didn’t take long to get used to. It has five brightness modes, the 2nd or 3rd brightness level is plenty for most night time walking.

    Overall, it’s a great headlamp. A little pricy, but the quality feels great and the output is also great. Only reason for a 4 instead of 5 is the red light feature. It’s not bright enough to be of any use at all

  59. Ken E. (verified owner)

    Great light! Used it for the first time at night in a down pour… I must say it is very weather proof! I’m very impressed with the build quality, the brightness, the selection of brightness, and the battery life! Awesome headlight! Received very quickly!

  60. Bryce (verified owner)

    Love it, use it everyday out in the sticks. But lately it has been randomly shutting off on me. That’s my only complaint.

    • Dianne

      I will have warranty check in with you to see why it’s randomly shutting off.

  61. Timothy R. (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the headlamp. The light is BRIGHT when you need it to be. I have not been in a situation to use it for an extended period of time yet so I cannot evaluate the length of time the battery lasts. It is comfortable to wear and I like that it is rechargeable.

  62. Tim (verified owner)

    As a cave photographer, I’ve been searching for a headlamp with a few specific features. 18650 powered, neutral white led, red led, waterproof, 600+ lumens, wide diffused hotspot, intuitive interface.

    This headlamp has it all…except the last part. The user interface on it is really awful. You’d think a quick single press would be used to turn the light on/off, but instead it is used as the battery life check. It’s a nice feature, but it absolutely doesn’t need to be mapped to the most primary switch function. On/off is instead toggled by a half second press. Once on, a single quick press cycles through the brightnesses. Half second press again to turn it off. This is annoying until you get used to it and I found myself accidentally turning my flashlight to the next brightest mode when I meant to turn it off. An even bigger disappointment is there is no direct access to red mode or the dimmest white setting. This means you have to switch through all the modes, including the 950 lumen turbo mode. Not great when you are trying to preserve your night vision. Toggling the red led on/off with a half second press would make so much more sense to me. Better yet, include a second button.

  86. John E. (verified owner)

    The headlamp is very comfortable to wear. I was a little concerned that the light portion of the headlamp, might make it quite front heavy. However, when using the top headband, I did not experience any problems from the weight of the light. The materials and construction of the headband make it very comfortable to wear.
    The various light outputs of the light are top notch. If you last used an older generation of headlamp, you need to get this headlamp.

Hoping to see a more from Fenix that are CERT friendly and Much brighter blue/green/red light options on the headlamps.

    Love this headlamp! I work for an airline and headlamps are a must. This thing is sturdy, very bright, and lasts a long time on a single charge. I recommended this to my coworkers and three of us have bought these. Ive got a few others who have bought flashlights from you as well.

    I’d like to see a few changes on an upgraded unit. 1: Either a wider beam pattern or adjustable beam. 2: Improved battery life monitor/indication. 3: Possibly an external battery case for extended run time.

    Also are there any plans for a larger capacity battery, i.e. 4500 mAh or larger?

  103. Paul M. (verified owner)

    The light is VERY bright on turbo mode. and it lights up a very large area. The other modes are very useful as well except for the red light mode. The two red lights are not bright enough for practical use such as walking to your hunting stand in the dark. If they were, I would have given it a rating of 5. I actually think the light deserves a rating of 4.5.

  104. Michael McKee (verified owner)

    I work as an inspector and this light is great for the areas I have to work in. Very bright and powerful!

    I own two of the HL60R’s and use them for python hunting in the Everglades.
    For the price they are the most durable, brightest and reliable headlamp I’ve ever used. Best of all is the ability to charge to unit via a USB cable without needing a charger, Also the optional battery that can be charged via USB port as well.

    I’ve used numerous lamps for Ultra Running, and I think I’ve found a winner. Brilliant light with great battery length.
    The natural white light is the difference maker. No more headaches and that “fog of war” feeling like you do with the cheaper blue bulbs.
    Marine Corps Ultra Running approved!

    Very good, this is my second one

  110. Brandon (verified owner)

    This headlamp is excellent. I love having the ability to charge the battery without taking it out of the light. I’m giving it 4 stars because the battery level indicator is a bit obnoxious because of the flashing lights and because it is easy to accidentally check the battery status when you are trying to turn the lamp on. Overall I am very happy with this headlamp and I think it is worth the high price.

    Well constructed light, headband is extremely comfortable, headlamp has 5 white settings and 1 red. If you want a bright red light, do not buy this unit.

    Super bright! It’s a great headlamp. It’s a bit on the heavy side but the brightness makes it worth it. Great setup with the 18650 battery. Easy to recharge. I really like this headlamp. Easy to use. The red light is dim but I didn’t buy it for a red light. I bought it for brightness and the 18650 setup. The usb charging is a plus. Hard to beat. Worth the $ for sure.

    I love the rechargeable feature, it’s also very bright. As I’ve read in other reviews, its fairly heavy, and the red is minimally effective, should either be brighter or have an extra level. I’ve salvaged several 18650 cells from computer batteries, so I’ve pretty much got an unlimited supply of batteries for my Fenix.

    Amazing → Where has this been my whole life??? I use it nearly every day to work on small components and the amount of light, makes it so much easier to see things. Only downside is that it blinds the people I’m talking to. I took it outside to take out the trash and on a dusk bike ride, it really lights up the surrounding area.

    Great little light. I use it at night while walking my dogs to test it out. I’ve been using it every night, and most mornings, to walk my dogs. I am still on the first charge after, about, 11 days and it’s still working great and bright as can be. It throws out a wide beam so it really lights up an area. Good for finding your way in the dark.

    This headlamp is great! The first time I used it was in a rice field in Arkansas for a duck hunt. Walking to the pit, I had it on the brightest setting and was able to see where I was stepping and the pit easily from about 50 yards out. Once in the pit I changed it to the lowest setting and was easily able to see what I was doing, while not blinding the other guys in the pit. The pivot motion allowed me to focus where I needed without moving my head more than needed and the light is very lightweight.

    Hands down the best headlamp I’ve ever owned. Had it for about 6 months now and it’s been awesome. I took it into Ape Caves near Mt. St. Helens the other day and it was extremely useful to have the option to go to 950 Lumens in there. Comes in handy with those tall ceilings that most other headlamps would not even begin to illuminate. You definitely gotta keep in mind that when wearing this thing, you are basically Cyclops from X-Men, though. One wrong glance and you can potentially melt your friends’ eyeballs out of their sockets. Very impressed with the sturdiness, battery life, and excellent design of this headlamp. One criticism is I’d like to see the USB cover thing designed to be less risky to pull off by accident, although this has not happened and may well never happen if I am careful. Also, might be cool to see some more options for headband designs and such.

  152. John C. (verified owner)

    This is a fantastic headlamp; best I have ever used, after decades of using other brands. Buyers should understand that its quite substantial, not ultralight. However, if you want 5 levels of brightness, recharging capability, super high quality, its worth a few extra grams. If you’re looking for something similar but a bit lighter, consider the HM50R USB Rechargeable Headlamp. I have that one too and its excellent.

  153. Erica P. (verified owner)

    I’ve been cheerfully blinding my kids when wearing this. The light is amazing and I am now a lot more effective at all my DIY jobs with bright, hands-free light.

    This is the best flashlight I have ever owned. It’s amazing! I was using it in Sumatra on a jungle trek to see the Orangutans. My local guide had a light that hardly shined. Knowing that he needed this bright light to show the trail and the wildlife & probably couldn’t order one, I just had to give him mine. You should have seen how happy he was.
    Being so durable & a rechargeable unit, I’m sure he will have this light the rest of his life.

    Love that this headlamp holds it’s charge well and is nice and bright throughout the hike. Lasts at least four days at an hour and forty minutes a hike (haven’t dared go any longer). I hike a very rocky narrow trail after dark and it keeps me on the trail very easily. Uncomfortable on the forehead without a hat and very hard to access the charging port on the headlamp.

    Can’t imagine a better headlamp. Light/battery housing very compact, perfect for tight quarter use, but so bright, works great for long range use as well. Light, compact, comfortable, sturdy and versatile. The red filter light great for discreet short range illumination, but wouldn’t mind that setting to have a lumen or two more. I have another headlamp, but suspect the Fenix will get the call to duty every time.

    I love this light, it’s very comfortable and bright. My only qualm with it is the incredibly dim red lights. Do not buy this if you’re expecting a usable red light, it gets a knock for that. I should have noticed in the datasheet it says just 1 lumen. Why even put a red light on it if it’s only one lumen? single AAA battery headlamps have a brighter red light, which is actually usable. The red light might be useful if you’re in a pitch black tent and just looking for something discretely. I still am getting what I need out of this which is a very bright headlamp to use at night with a snowmobile that has terrible headlamps. This headlamp works with button cell 18650’s and flat top 18650’s, which is more convenient than the first fenix flashlight I got.

    Put simply; the best flashlight on the market. Not too heavy on the head, bright enough for almost everything, good runtimes off decent 18650s. I gave mine to my wife thinking I could get by with some of my other plethora of headlamps (we live in rural alaska and use headlamps every single day morning and evening), but within a week I came to buy myself a new HL60. Perfect combination of durability, brightness, ease of use, and price point.

    I’m a retired NYC ER nurse, a hospital corpsman with the 1st Marines in Viêt-Nam before that. Now I’m a volunteer Disaster Nurse with the American Red Cross. My experience has taught me how to improvise anything out of nothing but not good light. You need good, dependable light. And I know what “good light” means.
    I’ve used this unit for years, really appreciating its center weighted, medium wide angle, beam, certainly more useful for most of what I encountered. If I needed a tightly focused, long range spot (rare, for me), I pulled out one of my other Fenix hand held lights. Its build is extremely solid and durable. I’ve just returned from Red Cross “deployment” in northern California, which is on fire. I used this light every night, day in, day out, recharging, when I could, during the day. I brought extra 18650 batteries but never needed them. It was dropped, hosed, dirty from high desert soil and ash, tossed about (gently, I take care of my equipment) and it crashed down with me when I fell on my butt. It never hiccuped. Works as well as the day I got it. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you; I’m impressed.

    Easily one of my favorite flashlights and the best headlamp I’ve used to date. Buy once, cry once. Don’t bother with the cheap headlamps at the big box stores. I find myself reaching for my Fenix headlamp all the time since my garage is not very well lit. It’s amazing how convenient it is to have both of your hands when doing work (as opposed to holding a flashlight with one hand). Having a rechargeable and replaceable (if you forget to recharge it) battery is very convenient. I’ve used mine for everything ranging from crawling around inside airplanes to doing yard work well into the night. The only thing I would recommend improving upon is the rubber cover for the USB port. It can be tricky to use.

    I owned two others Fenix flashlights. This one is my first headlamp, I started to use it daily at work as it free my hand. I wondered why I bought the other two! Unless someone convinced me other brands are better, I trusted Fenix quality since the 1st one I bought 4-5 years ago still work like new even though it looks beaten up cosmetically due to accidental drops, before that couple of my other brand name broken after a few drop at 3-4ft.

    This was given to me as a gift by my request 1.5 years ago. I am 54 years old and seem to need more light when doing all sorts of projects around the house. I used it for under sink plumbing, working on my laptop, vehicle repairs, walking the pasture at night, reading instructions printed in microscopic print. Its handy and hands free. I keep a close eye on it as family members are always trying to take off with it. The rechargable battery is great too. Good Job Fenix…

  221. Scott

    I love this light. I’ve used it camping on many occasions, and working around the house many more. Wish I was camping more than working on the house. This light goes on the fishing boat every time out. It comes in handy digging around in compartments or the tackle box in the dark and the red light function is perfect for this. It’s not the lightest headlamp I’ve owned but its extremely comfortable and it’s the only one I ever use anymore. This is my second Fenix light and I hope to add a third soon. I have the PD32 for everyday carry, the headlamp when I need my hands free, and I plan on purchasing the TK47 next. I’m looking for a thrower that can also go camping along with multiple functions, and using it on the boat when it’s dark and I’m trying to find my way back to the dock on a not so familiar lake. Buy a Fenix, you can’t go wrong. They’ve replaced my old favorite brand that will remain nameless.


    This is one of the most reliable and useful tools a pro could invest at!
    After more than one year on every day use is part of my every day tools on my working vest.
    Amazing bright,very light and extremely battery efficient especially when used with the 3500 mAh original battery.

    i put this on my christmas list & santa didn’t disappoint.
    My 1st head torch & my 1st fenix product (never heard of them before). So much brighter than i was expecting, although as other reviews say the red led lights aren’t bright enough for trail walking, just for close up viewing. Very comfortable to wear. Solid metal case, (not heavy). Easy to charge via the supplied usb cable (no usb plug supplied, but i have a few anyway). Easy to use & great that it remembers which mode you turned if off in, so it turns on straight back to that mode. Instructions not clear that it’s supplied with a spare rubber seal, i didn’t notice that there was a seal already fitted so when i put the seal on, the torch wouldn’t work. Removed the extra seal and works great. Can’t comment on battery life as i only got it today. Not the cheapest out there, but the ability & quality of this shines through.
    Would highly recommend, & if this is the quality of fenix i’m sure i’ll be buying more of their products in the future.

    I wouldnt trade this thing for any other headlamp in the world! Light and tough as hell. Brighter than the sun if you look right at it. Dont. 5 stars all the way

  227. Frank (verified owner)

    ***Price*** Worth every penny. Wish I could take back all the cheap big box store headlamps I’ve accumulated and put the money towards more products like this instead.

    ***Lighting*** Good mix of throw and spread all in one. Not that I use it often but the max setting is a fantastically ridiculous amount of light. Whether you are doing work up close, needing to see a ways off or flood an area with light this will accommodate your needs on the fly.

    ***Versatility*** Is this an 18650 charger with a light or a light with an 18650 charger? You’re actually getting two devices in one. Plus it’s USB compatible which makes finding and replacing charging accessories affordable, quick and easy. Most of all I appreciate USB being incorporated since too many companies these days try to upsell proprietary cords, adapters and so on.

    ***Build*** This isn’t ultra light nor is it cumbersome. It’s a good balance overall between materials and weight. Once you put hands-on the straps and casing you’ll see what I mean. This unit is solid and simple.

    ***Comfort*** The top strap that goes over your head allows you to loosen the headband portion a bit more, adding comfort. The back of the housing is a large plastic plate that distributes the pressure of the headband well against the forehead. The band itself runs behind the plate adding cushion and feels soft against bare skin.

    ***Application*** The low light settings are great for working with objects and tools within hands reach when you don’t want a ton of glare and blinding reflection. The higher settings are perfect for working withing an area that needs well lit such as snow blowing, changing a tire, hanging holiday lights and so on.

    ***Miscellaneous*** A lot of headlamps only rotate downwards. The HL60R can be angled up or down. This is convenient as sometimes I wear headlamps like a necklace when layering hats and hoods in cold weather. With the light dangling from my neck I simply rotate the housing upwards and have all the illumination I need.

    Outstanding head lamp. I live on a farm noted for its rattlesnake population. I use it whenever I’m outside during early morning and evening hours. The light illuminates wherever I’m walking and/or working and the battery lasts for hours. Easy to recharge using a USB port. Comfortable to wear. I have also enjoyed wearing it on numerous hiking trips and wouldn’ t go camping now without it. Highly recommend.

    Best headlamp I’ve ever owned. Well constructed, Incredibly bright and great battery life. It’s a bit heavier and more bulky than most headlamps, but that’s to be expected with a big 18650 battery. The only thing I don’t like are the red LEDs… They’re just not bright enough to be very useful. From backcountry skiing, big wall climbing, or long backpacking trips I don’t go anywhere without it.

    I am impressed with the complete package of this headlamp. First I used it when I went fishing and the capability of adjusting the light level comes in handy. This feature helps with my eyes adjusting to the dark. I also use the headlamp for doing work around the house. Doing plumbing under the sink, changing light fixtures, and doing general things in low light areas of the house. This headlamp is great for working under the hood of my truck. The up and down adjustment works well.

    Being able to charger the battery in the headlamp is another huge plus the this headlamp or any light. No carrying around a charging unit to to recharge the battery. How great is this!

    This is an all around the best headlamp I have ever owned. So impressed, I got 2 more, one for work on my hard hat and the other one stays in my truck, just in case.

    I recently purchased the HL60R and I love it!! I use my headlamp on a daily basis at work and home. Working on helicopters can be a challenge since space is limited in most areas. That’s were the headlamp is a lifesaver. The HL60R allows me to use both my hands and still flood the area with enough light to see exactly what I need to. I remember working on aircraft before headlamps and the challenge then was propping the flashlight in an area that was out of the way and still afforded enough light. With my headlamp it is not even a thought. The rechargeable feature is also a plus. No need for an extra charger when I can simply plug the cable straight into the headlamp (and that’s just when you actually need to charge it.) The battery last an insanely long time for such a bright light. I can use it for an entire week before I need to charge it. This has been one of the best buys that I have made in my aviation career. Will definitely stay with Fenix for all my lighting needs.

    Purchased this light about a month ago and fell in love with it once it arrived. The packaging was very nice in it’s own well printed box. Setting up the light was super easy and I was really surprised at how bright turbo mode is. On a side note, the beam output on turbo mode directly in front of the lens WILL burn you or anything that can light up. I tested the light by placing a paper in front of the light and the paper started smoking. This is NOT a flashlight defect it just indicates how intense the LED bulb is making it’s output. The light is excellently built with very high quality aluminum and it’s very nice looking. I have used it while lighting up a field to photograph an object and it’s just amazing that such a little device has so much candle power. The light also fits comfortable on your head and it also tilts up and down. One convenient feature is that the light can be charged via USB and the cable is not proprietary so if you do lose the original cable you can easily replace it without having to special ordering it. I highly recommend this light. The best LED light I have so far.

    I am a New York City Actor/Comedian and ride along a poorly lit bike path along the Hudson River. There has been some attacks on bikers lately (Nov-2016). This light, on it’s own, lights up the path and would definitely blind the maggot scum that might seek to attack me.

    I employ additional lighting as well on the handlebars to cook anyone’s eyeballs that might want some action. The Felix Headlamp allows me to look around, check for any scumbags hiding in the bushes. Love this lamp. I have it attached to my helmet via 15 lb Velcro. I recommend that over the headstrap.

    It came with a Battery as well. Another lamp I bought from another company had no batteries. I truly like this light. Might consider getting a portable recharger to stick that on my helmet so that I can double / triple the duration. No complaints, love this light.

  235. John (verified owner)

    I’ve had mine for almost a year now. I agree with Mike Morrison’s comments so won’t repeat them. The quality is Fenix, one of my favorite headlamps. The base allows positioning the lamp on a table or counter, and with a convex mirror, allows one to easily remove an eyelash or foreign object from the the eye by using a lower level and offsetting the light from the mirror so you are not looking directly at the light. Fantastic.

    Just one questions . . . on the rear of the head band is a plastic bracket for the top strap. Also on the rear of that bracket are two plastic “prongs”, I am sure are for snapping something into – I just have no idea what they are used for?? Anyone?

      Thank you for the comment John. Regarding the plastic prongs, it is for headlamps that require a cord. HL60R doesn’t require a cord, but we use the same headband and plastic bracket for each headlamp regardless of cord or cordless. I hope this answers your question.

    Fantastic Headlamp is a Home Run.
    I just got this in last night.
    Outstanding headlamp! Much better then I was expecting (and the bar is very high with Fenix).
    Some notes. I own many fenix and some nitecore flashlights.. This is a “must have” homerun that instantly obsoletes my other headlamps. This is NOT a oh cool trophy collectible item.. this my freinds is a “GOTO” workhorse item that won’t be collecting dust as a shelf queen..

    1-The Beam Is ideal. I wouldn’t change a thing. The Hotspot is HUGE. And the orange peal reflector makes a very smooth and large transition region to spill. The Spill has a very wide coverage area.. wider then a pd35.. making this the perfect for close up hand on work.. Yet bright enough @ 960 lumens it can easily throw hundreds of feet.

    2- Five Neutral LED Brightness settings + a sixth for night LED lights. Very nice brightness step separation and run times and the 960 Turbo is a true full time mode not a momentary burst.

    3- Uses a True Neutral color LED which shows more accurate colors… esp in better reds,yellows,greens. It has an amazing color rendering ability.

    4- Multi Use light. You can use red or eco for night light, you can use brightness 2,3 for close up hands free work..and can use brightness 4,5 for long distance hiking or light up entire room. You can take it off your head and the holder becomes a stable stand that lets you set it down then aim it (with large 160 degree radius) for use as a fixed work light.

    5- Very Rugid all aluminum housing and a contoured ratcheting holder. the holder is arc contoured perfectly to hug your forehead and the strap provides built in cushioning. The strap is a very high quality thick soft elastic banding. They also provide an optional top Strap that goes over the top of your head/helmet.. this can be taken on/off easily.

    6-Has a built in recharger with micro usb port- you can recharge it with just a usb cord without having to take out the removable/rechargeable 18650 battery… and the built in charger port is waterproof even without the dustcap. Other headlamps like nitecore are not waterproof if the dustcap is removed.

    7- Weight while obviously not as light as an el-cheapo plastic headlamp, it is still light enough not be a burden.. and having the SINGLE body design makes it low profile and easy to just throw on and go. I Love having a simple single body design you can just throw one with nothing sticking out to snag or dig into your head.. I have had other headlamps that required secondary battery packs that go either in the back of your head or separate pocket holder.. Problem with those is they snag when you have to crawl around in a crawlspace.. This is why this Single Body low profile construction is Ideal.. The profile is slim and wide so it won’t protrude or snag..

    8- LOVE having the led/red led flash to give you a signal for battery life (high,medium,low life remaining).. nice built in feature most lights don’t have..

    9- RUNTIME!! This rechargeable 18650 model will run for 13 hours @150 lumens.. compared to a rechargeable AA model will only run for 2 hours @ 150 lumens.. That’s a HUGE difference and justifies the slight increase in weight over the smaller AA model.. And also this can go 960 lumens where the AA models top out at 150 lumens..

    10-Fenix construction.. Very high grade components and engineering.. Also prefer this Center Light design vs. most other 18650 single body headlamps use an end of body light that offsets the light. Also Details like the Dual Spring in Battery tray make this a premium product you can hand down to your kids..

    Summary.. an absolute home run and one of the “you must have it” type items that will be your GOTO light.. not a shelf queen.. Does it right on EVERY level and detail you want.. you can use it on your head or as a work light or off your head as an adjustable work light you can easily aim.. Built like a fenix (a tank) and low profile single body low profile construction that won’t snag on anything and light enough to wear for long times..

    Negatives: Really none.. Perhaps the reds could be a little brighter.. the Red LEDS are more for Night Eyes close in work not for lighting up a trail.. not a big negative and if you are Really trying to preserve your night vision could be considered a positive not a negative..
