Retired NYC ER RN, volunteer disaster nurse with the American Red Cross. I just returned from Northern California, which is on fire. Folks living in harms way were evacuated to our close by shelters. Most were "walkie talkies" (nurse talk) but some were disabled, suffering chromic illness, old and frail, new mothers. My partner and I - a superb, retired San Francisco ICU nurse - were the night shift. How do we care for out special needs clients in a dark, cavernous shelter containing 200+ sleeping people? I put on my HL55 and she put on her (other brand) head light. We worked HARD. My Fenix headlight light functioned flawlessly day in, day out. Dropped, scrubbed off in the sink when splattered, disinfected; It could easily it light up the whole, huge room with its wide angle beam on High or Turbo. This is great but not always what's needed. The the low output of the low setting was just what was needed to change dressings, check blood pressures, give medications, instruct a new mother how to care for her infant, comfort frightened old folks waking in a very different "world." The shelters are closing, they and we are going home. Some of my partners parting words were, "Where the *&%$ did you get that headlight and where can I get one?!" Ladies and gentlemen, thank you. Oh, in case you think this is made up BS, see attached photo. Try to find that anywhere but a Red Cross disaster response. Doc P

    This is the best headlamp I have ever used. There aren’t a bunch of useless features that are there for marketing purposes. It is simply a white light headlamp with multiple brightness settings. Also it will take flat top 18650 which is a great feature in my opinion. I cannot recommend this light highly enough. It is so simple to use and and gets brighter than most people will ever need a headlamp to be. And at this price, I would say this is a very inexpensive light given the quality.

    It was $59, not $119.90. It’s the 5th one I’ve purchased (2 for friends). That says it all.
