    As a retired scoutmaster, this is the best head lamp I’ve ever owned. High lumen output, range of brightness levels, two lamps, versatile, durable, waterproof, rechargeable with battery level indicator, and ease of use make this headlamp an excellent buy.

    I like this light so much I got another one to permanently fix one to my mountain bike helmet. This way it’s always there when I need it and I can keep my other one for day to day trekking.

    I am a professional outfitter having pioneered international rafting expeditions on such classics as; the Futaleufu River in Patagonia Chile, the Great Bend of the Yangtze in China and the Magpie River in Quebec. A headlamp is imperative on commercial river trips and especially on exploratory expeditions where guides often finds themselves cooking or setting up camp in the dark. I can unequivocally say that in terms of brightness and length of burn time, this is by far the best head lamp I have ever owned. The brightest setting is so bright that it’s almost overkill and even the lower settings throws out enough light for almost any chore. It’s also waterproof, very light weight and recharges from my computer. Eric Hertz, Earth River Expeditions

    This is the best headlamp I’ve ever used. All previous headlamps including ones from Fenix have one light so I usually either have spot or wide the fact that this lamp has 2 lenses means I can have a wide field of view when I’m hiking or reading maps close up but if I need to use a spot to see way down a trail I can quickly light it up like the Sun. It also has a mount that allows the user to angle the headlamp straight out or down so it can be modified for lots of different adventures. An example would be the angle is different when you’re hiking then when you are mountain biking. It easily converts between your head over to a helmet. It also uses the same battery as my hand torch so I only need to carry one backup battery when I’m on an adventure just in case 1 of my lamps runs out.

    This headlamp is really well put together. I like the aspect that the battery and light are One unit. There is no battery compartment on the back of the headband.
    I cannot attest to water proof capabilities, but the light is aptly equipped with flood and beam light. Each brightness is very adequate for many situations. There is a nice length of soft rubber applied to the forehead side to help keep the band in place. All said, very nice unit while being comfortable and stays lit for a while with the 3500 mAh 18650.

    I’m the house hold and family named flash light addict. After reading up on this small piece of engineering (you have to appreciate quality) I decided to take the plunge and am very pleased with it. The small light (and it’s functions) allow for close up work with a flood light that is ideal for pretty much anything you need illuminated within a comfortable 20ft (estimating) radius. The more powerful light and it’s central focus feature is clutch, bright as it needs to be, and has a great throw that’s competitive to all the name brands in its class and even those that considered hand held flashlights. Great product. One thing I’d probably change is the function aspect of the buttons – was a little confusing but we figured it out. (Until this light I refused to read the owners manual but had to for this one to figure out the functions)

    Love the headlight. The light it produces is far better than any other headlight I have used. The battery lasts for hours, and I love the fact that it’s rechargeable. (I was stymied by the little black plastic piece that guards the battery during shipping–I spent hours trying to charge the device before I finally contacted support. Yes there’s a tag that indicates this, but I sure missed it, as did the recipient of the second one I gave as a gift. We both thought the lamp was broken. Perhaps there’s some way to make this clearer?) Otherwise, a superb product. Highly recommended!

    Good headlamp. I prefer the floodlight feature. Its bright and fills a wide angle. The battery lasts several days. I use it a few hours every night at work. The straps and headband are comfortable. USB C plug in is great. I like the charge status readout. For working on equipment, I prefer a headlamp instead of a flashlight. This one fits the bill nicely. It gets hot on high. I prefer the middle brightness setting. Works good. I have dropped it a it kept working. I would recommend it to a friend.

    I’ve owned many head lamps or head flashlights. This is the second by Fenix. Beautifully made. If you’ve ever had to wear head lamps before for any length of time you will know that they are very uncomfy. Heavy. Hard to manage. Disorientating. Hey I ride horses and rarely use a flash light. That disorients the horses who CAN see quite well in the dark. But oh so nice to have light when you the human need to be in charge.

    It is not very intuitive nor easy to use. My only complaint. Brightness is fine but not at all what I am used to from Fenix and the hand held flash lights. Just fine because any stronger and you would start frying eyeballs of the good guys, the animals! We got shock flashlights to fry eyeballs of bad guys to do that bit.

    Otherwise, this is for my hubby. It took a bit to learn how to operate and don’t you dare imagine that we are below average in intelligence, ha ha ha!

    It has two flaws, I love and hate the light.
    It’s light weight – made of magnesium, has a cool white (spot) and a warm white (flood), it has a battery gauge to give you an idea of how much power is remaining, the top head strap was not needed for me so I removed it making the headlamp lighter, it’s an excellent headlamp (((EXCEPT FOR TWO FLAWS)))
    1. I HATE trying to adjust the light downward, going up is okay, but adjusting the light downward is extremely difficult. There is a little plastic piece that rubs on the outside of the grooved light, it allows for increments of adjustment. There is a design flaw making it substantially more difficult to move downward. I tried grease to fix the problem, but it does nothing. I’m in construction and this headlamp is on my hard hat. I constantly need to re-adjust it throughout the day, sometimes I need the light turned more up or down. If the light is all the way up but I need it turned facing down, it is a bitch. I hate it and after I’m done typing this review, it is being replaced with a Fenix HL55. Dear Fenix Lights, PLEASE FIX THIS INCREDIBLY ANNOYING FLAW.
    2, Also, the other flaw is the curled plastic that ((covers the buttons)) it says FENIX on this plastic part and it is directly in the way of turning the light on and off or adjusting output, this is only if the light is all the way in the up position. I need it in this position sometimes, and FENIX put a stupid piece of plastic that covers the buttons, why??? Please remove the plastic button protector or whatever it is, we don’t need it.
    Otherwise it is excellent, but for me it is nearly impossible to not be pissed off all day with this light. I hope they change the design…
    Sincerely Russell

    Excellent all around headlamp from flood light to spot light, this lamp has you covered. Runs a little hot due to the intensity of the light but that is expected with the level of output this headlamp produces.

    As a caver, finding a waterproof rechargeable headlamp with simple mode sequences and enough battery life to last days underground is not easy. But Fenix has done it, and with the added benefit of the spotlight and floodlight being separate.

    Nice light with good burn time. I’m a little concerned about usb charging of the light since NY caves tend to be quite muddy and wet. I think that feature might be compromised with the conditions of my caving area. I’d like to see an additional option for charging the light without usb included in the package. But damn this is a very sexy light!🦇

    I gave this as a gift to my husband. He can’t stop talking about how great it is. He delivers new semi trucks and often is under the trucks at night or in low light areas. He said this is the best headlamp he’s ever had and the USB recharge feature is super convenient. He can charge it in the truck and never worry about the batteries going dead.

    I’ would like to give it 4.5 stars. To me 5 star ratings are for perfection and if you buy fenix lights you already have a taste for quality but know perfection is hard to come by.
    I have a 2-e12s 2-cl05s one each of the hl23,hl50 and hl55.
    Great lights .
    The body almost has a molded plastic look to it as opposed to the machined aluminum of the others but still looks and feels solid
    The spot reflector is not smooth and is probably why it throws a little less then the hp25 for example, being able to use both beams at once is cool, and they blend in together nice it seems, maybe that’s why they went with the orange peel reflector on the spot light
    The electronic lock out is nice, loosening the cap locked it out for me also.
    Great battery comes with it, charging cord is short though,
    It doesn’t have the slots to easily change head bands like the others which I would have liked so I could take it off my dirty hard hat and put it on a clean head band . Doesn’t have the degree of rotation of my other fenix headlamps but that is a compromise they had to make.
    Great headlamp!

    I like this headlamp, along with my uc35 v2.0 flashlight, this will be my main light source for trail running. I took one star off because of the misleading way of running time for each brightness levels on the specification. In short, this is a light of 130-150 lumens for a whole night without need to change the battery, which is a pretty cool thing to me. You can ignore the 1600 lumens since it’s meaningless. You may able to use 400 lumens from time to time, but don’t count to use it consistently. To test, I charged it full and then turned it on the 400 lumens, 9hrs later, it’s still on, but around 130 lumens brightness, with one bar on the battery indicator(25% left). I turned it off and turned it on again on 400 lumens, it’s still pretty bright, but it dimmed in a couple of hours to the lowest setting of 8 lumens floor light mode. From this one and a HL18R headlamp I brought and returned before, it seemed that Fenix changed both the technology and specification. Technology wise, all the brightness level will be decreased pretty quickly (to what purpose I’m not sure although it said on turbo mode for the protection of overheat). In term of specification, the time on Turbo mode is meaningless, and so does the High but in a less way. Basically you’ll get a light at Medium brightness, if you divide the time for that brightness by 4, you’ll get the meaningful time for that brightness. So this is light of 130 lumens for 12hrs (48hrs / 4). Which is a pretty good deal to me. I have waited this for more than a year. Although I was waited for a 400 lumens one nighter, but looking back it seems an unrealistic goal for a single 18650 battery. Maybe the new PD36 flashlight with 21700 battery can do that, but I already owned uc35 and pretty happy about it so I’m reluctant to buy another one. Back to this lamp, the other good thing about this lamp is that it’s pretty light and comfortable, also it has white light which is a plus for me (I don’t like the warm yellow light on HL18R). If you are running trail a lot, this is a nice or must to have one, go get yours. I attached an output chart from the manual for your reference. Happy running!
