The Fenix HL05 Headlamp takes small and functional to a new level. Weighing only 0.5 ounces, the HL05 comes packed with features including two output modes, a red map light and red flash. This versatile little headlamp can be worn on the head, or clipped on a backpack or a hat. Available in multiple colors, it is a must-buy headlamp for hiking or nighttime reading. Ideal headlamp for kids, hikers, runners, and dog walkers.
This is a surprisingly useful and versatile light. I initially purchased it just because it was cheap and I had a discount coupon to use, so I took a chance on it being useful. I like to build my own computers and this light is very handy with its ability to be clipped and the light aimed inside a computer case. I don't need wear my cheapo headlight anymore for this work. It's not very bright but its bright enough to get the job done. Perfect for my toolbox!
I am surprised both Fenix and consumers haven't taken this light more seriously. It has fantastic runtimes for its size and what could be described as adequate performance. Built tough with an IPX8 rating this is a headlamp that should be on the shortlist for professional mountaineers as well as those who just want a compact run longing EDC/ super lightweight travel headlamp.
