Perfect Headlamp

Updated review! I had some issues with the light and after working with Fenix we solved the problems I was having (user error on my part). They were great to work with and diagnosed the issue over e-mail. Great company, I have several of their products and they are all great!

I love how this one has multiple white light levels, red light capability, and can clip on a baseball hat.

Helmet mount

I am a first responder and I have been using the HL60R lights on all of my technical rescue helmets for years. I have recently switched to the HM50R V2.0 because of how compact and light weight it is. My only regret is that there isn't a helmet mount like the HL60R has.

Great Headlamp For General Use

I was so happy with the first one I purchased for my daughter, I purchased 2 more in three months time for my son and my wife. Great for walking the dog, fixing the car, camping, and so many other outdoor activities. The new batteries with direct charging ports are also great.

Mostly great

Construction and functionality is excellent. The LED itself leaves a bit to be desired, it's very green on low and medium modes. This is more of an issue with Cree than Fenix to be fair.
