    love this. the super dim red light is great. most of the time I use it off the head band but wearing it on your head is a great option to have.

    This headlamp is AMAZING! I primarily use it for hiking and climbing and it ROCKS.

    It is plenty bright, has long runtimes, and is packed with useful features (red light to preserve night vision in pre-dawn starts, flashing red mode, battery level indicator, detaches from headband). Not only is the battery rechargeable (saving money & waste), but you can also swap it out, giving you two options for backups in the field (either a power bank or a spare 16340). And when the battery reaches its end of life, just get a new one! Not to mention all the operations are intuitive and easy to figure out.

    I thought I might miss having separate spot and flood beams, but the beam pattern on the HM50R V2 is really nice; broad enough to illuminate some surroundings, but still brightly focused on what’s directly in front of you.

    All of this in a durable, confidence-inspiring package; I’m pretty sure I could drop it off a cliff into a pond and it would be just fine. The headband is comfortable and fits either my head or a helmet just fine. Yet it’s lighter than most any other headlamp you could find!

    I’ve gone through a few headlamps from climbing and camping/backpacking brands, and have always been a little disappointed with them. No more. Fenix will be my go-to for lighting from now on, because they know what it takes to make great lights.

    High quality, c type charging port, my new go to now that my wife “borrowed” my V1 that she loves because it’s so small and lightweight. Perfect for camping.
