Outstanding Headlamp!

I am a fly-fishing guide in the summer and elk/wolf/bear guide in the fall and I don’t go anywhere without this headlamp. It has a strong battery life, bright light and incredibly durable. I put it through the wringer everyday from freezing temps to snow and submerged as well as getting abused in the saddlebags and in my daypack! I use the red light mostly when saddling the horses and mules in the early mornings well before the sun is up and the bright mode when looking for blood spatters after the sun has set. All around phenomenal headlamp that had yet to fail me!! A+++

Excellent product

This light is awesome. You can tell it is made out of high quality parts, not cheaply thrown together. The red light is super handy. I live in the South and we have a problem of hornets and wasps swarming us at night when we use white lights, so the red makes it easy to do things, and see things without being swarmed. The lights are super bright, easy to navigate through, and the best part is how it feels on my head. It isn’t heavy. I’ve used other popular companies in the past, but several have felt too bulky for me to wear on my head, even with the over-the-top strap. But this light feels very balanced. I’d also like to give a special thanks to Brandi G. from customer service. There was a hiccup with the shipping, but she immediately got it sorted out as soon as I reached out. All in all, Fenix is doing some awesome things.

Super Bright!!!

I love this light! I’ve been using the HL60R for the past 5 years and decided to upgrade. I live in Hawaii, so this light was primarily used while Torching(coastal forging at night). So it’s been tested by the saltwater. I chose this light because it has a similar design to the HL60R. I’m sure this light will last me a very long time! Will definitely be ordering a few more for the family.
