    The top strap is key to comfortable wearing of a headlamp for long periods of time. In addition to this comfort, reasonable brightness and good battery life ensure this is my go-to headlamp for most tasks. While not unreasonably heavy, the only time it does not go is when super-light weight is the priority. Great light!

    Someone I climbed with was also a spelunker. She touted the absolute necessity of having both hands free climbing in the dark. When I needed a utility light for the construction work I got in to this light fit everything I needed. Other lights take uncommon or expensive batteries, or can only function if you remember to charge them. This is the best light in Fenix’ lineup that has a turbo mode for when I had to light up the side of the bridge I was working on AND took batteries that I could ask any coworker for spares. The clips worked over the brim of a hard hat. Yes it’s a little heavy, but compared to the lighter and equally powerful Lights from other brands, well I literally got burned. This one gets hot but steps itself down as a safety feature. It’s now going on four years. This light is still my go to when I need light while doing something. Worth every single dollar. Paired with a nite core charger, eneloops for storage and Amazonbasic batteries for daily use.

    Quality and definitely dependable!

    I love this headlamp. After having tested several other high quality AA battery headlamps, this one holds up in the elements and has high lumen power for several hours. The wiring is durable in the sub zero temps of Alaska and the casing is also impervious to the harsh climate here that often causes plastic to crack. By far a high quality product!

  5. Douglas Ryan (verified owner)

    The best head lamp around. Takes AA batts, comes on where you left the setting, has a lock out on power, and feels great on the head with all the light you need. My favorite headlamp, I have three and have given to those who use lamps all the time, they love them. Hard to find one like this that is not a recharge battery model.

  6. Jonathan (verified owner)

    Very bright light, pretty decent battery life on high setting. Used for a caving trip and it did very well. I may buy another one.

  7. Peter (verified owner)

    So far so good…seems very well made

  8. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Powerful light. Haven’t used it yet except to check out the beams. It’s going to be great.

  9. Michael Hayes

    Great light. The elastic in the head band gave out and it is no longer adjustable to stay in place on my head. I’ve contacted the warranty department but I have not gotten a reply.

    • Dianne

      Warranty should be reaching out to you.

    The spot beam is not going to be useful for caving

    The Jack of All Trades.
    Enough useful power combined with the versatility of being able to find AA batteries nearly anywhere man walks makes this your choice for whatever you want to use it for.
    The beam has a pretty good spotlight for throwing a couple hundred yards out and spotting washed out trails at night and such.
    The low setting has all the light you need for normal hiking with eco mode being good enough for most camp tasks.
    Medium setting is plenty strong for when you need to keep focused on bad trails, and you get 8 hours of that.
    High setting is for “scouting” or quick bursts for whatever your purposes. Turbo is the same but just a bit stonger, The beam reaches out there further than most headlamps.
    There is plenty of useful beam around the spotlight for tasks at hand.
    The tradeoff for all the distance is the beam is a bit like a spotlight. The surround of the beam could be slightly more defuse, but that’s easily remedied by adjusting the tilt.
    The headstraps will go tight enough to allow you to run with it on if you want to.
    1 battery pack got me through a couple nights in the desert with plenty to spare.
    Took it to the mountains, through the woods, multiple airports, stuffed in bags and thrown around, and it’s still like new. Maybe smells a bit “different” now, don’t judge me.
    I do want an HM50R for space saving on ultralight backpacking, but otherwise I can live with the little extra weight for now, it’s not that bad really.
    This headlamp hasn’t let me down yet and is perhaps one of the most “practical” lights I’ve ever used.

    This headlamp was the first product I purchased from Fenix and after almost two years of near-daily use, it works just as well. It is comfortable to wear with an even weight distribution on your head – the battery pack doesn’t outweigh the light at the front. It conveniently takes commonly available AA batteries and after much use it still provides excellent battery life. The battery pack seals excellently and securely. The supportive top/center strap also aids in weight distribution, though I wish there was rubber gripping to improve the security of it. Possibly my favorite aspect of this headlamp is that you can bump the brightness without having to reset the level you’re already at. You just press the button and go. Additionally, when you turn the light off and back on, it starts up at the same setting you last were using, increasing timeliness when searching for wildlife. Even in the hot Arizona desert, I still don’t struggle with the light overheating with extended periods of use. I’ve used it in the cool Appalachians, the hot desert, dropped it in the swamp countless times, and retrieved it after falling 40 feet down a talus slope with no effect to it’s functioning. This headlamp is the perfect combination of durable, comfortable, and convenient.

    I am a utility locator in NE Ohio. Twice a month I pull emergency 24 hr on call covering two counties. I work storm damage, automobile accidents, water and gas main breaks, electrical outages, I frequently work around downed power lines. I do this in every type of weather imaginable, all hours of the day and night. I need a dependable, powerful light source and my Fenix HP15UE headlamp does the job. Thank you Fenix for a well built great product!

      Would love to have you elaborate on what you don’t like about the light Michael.

  15. Chris Taylor (verified owner)

    This is a great light, my favorite function is the switch does not need multiple presses to power off and it switches on at the same brightness.

  16. Hoa Hua (verified owner)

    Product works as advertised. Nothing to complain

    Love mine very durable very bright long run time. Used for horseback hunting. I’m gout get a couple more for my kids.

  19. Jonathan (verified owner)

    I’ve had this light for almost a year now. It’s been reliable, but my biggest complaint is that the straps are very smooth, and the headlamp falls off very easily. This is especially true when working underneath a vehicle. It just slips right off. I’d settle for some sort of chin strap, but no one seems to make one for headlamps.
    Other than that, the light has been good. The 400 lumen claim seems a little high since it doesn’t seem much brighter than one of my older lights that was around 200 lumens.

    The battery pack is well designed, and seals up nicely. The gold plated contacts are a nice touch in case of battery leakage.

  20. Jacob Loyacano

    I have had my HP15 for 4 months. I use it frequently at night for wildlife surveys. It is a reliable headlamp. To date I have not had an issue with the tilt function on this headlamp. On my HP11 I had it snap a couple of times. The burst mode on the HP15 is effective but I have never really needed it. Its just fun to push sometimes. I do wish this light came with a diffuser as the HP11 did. Overall I would recommend this headlamp but my favorite model has been the HP11. I don’t like that I have to hold the power button in order to turn the light off. This sounds petty but is slightly annoying when I need the light off in an instant. Especially because only tapping the power button will change to power output of the light rather than killing the power.

    I bought mine several months ago & wanted to get used to it for a while before reviewing.
    Overall impression:
    Versatile, well made, dependable unit.

    Good points:
    easy to use, 2 buttons one is on/off when held down briefly (1/2 second) & changes power when tapped quickly. There is enough difference so you hardly ever get the wrong function. Second button accesses a lighthouse level high intensity beam instantly while remembering the setting in use before. It auto returns from the super high after a short period. Holding it down for 3 seconds turns on an automatic SOS flasher at a 50 lumens power that will signal for a long time. Pressing the other button goes directly into high power “burst mode”.
    Takes commonly available “AA” batteries, either regular or Ni MH rechargeable.
    Not so good points:
    Its listed as “Heavy splash proof” but not “waterproof as in submersible.
    Beam is fixed, the older HP15 had a diffuser, that is no longer an option. Not terrible as the beam is well spread & even.
    The coiled wire is stiff, it tries to twist @ 90 degrees no matter how you assemble the clip.
    The SOS is terribly slow to send, I’m not sure why its not so much SOS as S–O–S.

    Nice versatile dependable light with enough settings to either get long battery run time, blinding brightness or something in between. The Burst mode is great for looking “out there” in the outdoors where the 50 Lumen setting is more than adequate for looking about you indoors (or in tent) or close (30 feet or) so for night hiking..

    Would I buy another or suggest to a friend?
    Absolutely YES to both, in fact I have a couple of times.
