    Use this light to change irrigation water at night on our farm. I wear glasses and the light beam does not get reflected off lenses like some headlamps I’ve used.

    I bought this single AA powered headlamp to provide longer run-time than the single AAA headlamps I own, and now I can work most of a day without having to change batteries. The color of the LED is too cool for my taste. It is not cool white, but close to it. I do not like having the initial brightness set to maximum, which this headlamp is programmed to do. I could live with that if the headlamp had a memory, but it does not. Maybe in a future life, Fenix will listen to customers and provide them what they are looking for in flashlights/headlamps. There are plenty of other brands to choose from.

    Very pleased with this headlamp. The one AA battery is the real winner. Gives me enough light when I’m in low light conditions. No memory settings on last light mode but it’s no big deal since cycling through the brightness only takes a quick second.
    All in all awesome little headlamp.

    I use the HL23 for general around-the-farm chores, hiking, hunting, and as my son’s primary caving light. Size, form factor, and controls are fantastic. Pretty much perfect, IMHO. I just wish it started on “low” instead of “high”!

    I have had the headlamp about a week. It is very bright and hardly weighs anything. It has a decent tint, good beam pattern, and is well made. It is comfortable to wear. The only down side is it does not have mode memory. It always starts on high. That being said it is the most useful and comfortable headlamp I have ever owned for hiking. Not perfect but close.

    Bullet proof little headlamp, high quality with great design and function. The on/off delay is a great safety to prevent in-pack turn on. This is not a high lumen stadium light but perfect for low light moments where minimal lumens is all you need — finding an item in your pack, or finding your way around the campsite, yet enough light to find your way around the camp grounds or a trail at night without blasting your neighbors. Plus it’s less ambient brightness adjustment time for my eyes when I switch it off. I carry a higher lumen headlamp as well but this Fenix is my go-to. Sometimes less is more, and that’s what this awesome little lamp is all about.

    I didn’t buy this light from here but have had it for some time. I generally run an Eneloop in it and it performs well. Don’t use high all that often and run the medium setting and it is great. Memory would be nice, but I can live without it. This has become my standard backpacking headlamp but I also carry a Fenix LD12 which runs MUCH longer on a single battery. I have the Fenix headstrap but just received it and haven’t tested it backpacking yet, it just isn’t as comfortable as a front mounted light. Either way I love this headlamp. It is simple, functional, and let’s me streamline my entire backpacking experience on AA’s.

    Overall a great little unit and perfect for an overnight camping trip. However I just used one for a night ascent of a local mountain, and initially cursed myself for not replacing the battery, as I remembered this unit seems to have a bright new battery, right up until it doesn’t have anything… However the spare I was carrying also died quickly, which is the only downside to this light. You just cannot use the really bright light for more than about an hour and a half – which is a real problem when all your friends are using their headlamps at high brightness! Around camp it’s great, but for an all nighter it just doesn’t have the battery capacity.

    It’s alright i wish it was at least 300 lumens and had a memory mode so it wouldn’t start on high every time and a red LED would be nice also.
