  1. Mr. Colin J. Macdonald

    Great little light really does the job!!So light and comfortable you forget you’ve got it on, light quality is good and clear and excellent for walking or running but maybe not strong enough for cycling. Good battery life and quick to charge.

  2. Peter Webber

    Low battery lifeThe battery life is not as stated. I do a lot of camping and the advertised 40 hours at lowest setting made me buy this model. However it’s not even close to true. At lowest setting I get 5 or six hours. Very disappointing.I had a cheap £10 head torch I replace with this. That one had much better battery life!Okay so it’s light and comfortable but battery life is by far the most important feature for me and this doesn’t have it.:(

    Good Light for RunningVery light. Good battery life. The issue of the strap needing to be readjusted each time is only a big deal if you try to put it on with one hand. Adjusting the angle of the light is also not the smoothest. I think it’s a good light for running but I wouldn’t take it on a multi day hike because of the adjustments.

  4. Christopher

    Mixed feelings on thisit’s overpriced for what it is – and you can’t take the light of of the headband to wash it – so once you’ve sweat all over it – you’re just stuck with it like that.If it were cheaper – or you could detach the light, I would raise the review – but I can buy a $19 headlamp that is rechargeable and weighs slightly more and pull the band off and wash it when it gets grundgy.

    It would be nice if I didn’t have to glue parts together, on this fairly new itemIt would be nice if I didn’t have to glue parts together, on this fairly new item.Purchased one of the originals, with the battery pack on the back, and really enjoyed it. Very good light.Saw the smaller version and wanted to try. Works fairly well but I noticed that after wearing maybe once, the two layers on the front are separating at the top.Not happy about that. Not expecting it.Does not affect the functioning of the light but really would have expected better from a new product.Hm.

    Great for running.I’ve worn this on a few night runs. I would guess I have it set to about 50% and I’ve run over uneven sidewalks and up/down stairs with no other lighting. It doesn’t bounce or move at all and it lit the ground well enough that I never missed a step.

    Excellent headlampThis is exactly what I hoped it was going to be. Crazy lightweight, rechargeable, great light output, reasonable battery life, great features that work, and no more ruined headlamps from alkaline batteries bursting at inopportune times. I do wish the optional light diffusing stuff sack wasn’t so expensive, but I have zero complaints about the light itself. This thing has made me a loyal customer in a hurry.Updated a few months later: One of the things I have really come to appreciate about this headlamp is how it fits. It’s very easy to adjust to my head. It’s also worth noting that I have a very large head, and it fits me perfectly with room to spare – and i can also almost instantly get it to fit on my small children’s heads. The adjustability is as good as it gets. This thing is fantastic.

    You Need This and Fits Snugly without Giving Me a HeadacheIf you walk or run outside, this is a must-have for those times you are out on roads at dawn, dusk or other low visibility weather, especially in winter when it gets dark so early. I mostly use the red-blinking light to make cars see me, occasionally the white light when I need to see where I’m going. I used it once during a snow flurry and an hour later walking thru a trail in a nature preserve a lady who had passed me in her car earlier in the walk when I was on the road, she said that she could see the red flashing light through the snow before she could see me walking. I’ve had other headlamps before, but this has been the easiest to use – I like how the strap is attached to the light fixture, it’s all one continuous piece and the buckle adjustment in back is easy to use even while wearing gloves, it just slides on the elastic to widen so it’s easy to get it on over a winter beanie and then easily snugs and stays in place. As a result, it never feels tight around my head, which was a problem I’ve had with other headlamps that would give me a headache. It recharges easily and the blinking red light lasts for hours between charges.

    Better than the 330!I have a couple of the larger 330 headlamps, and my only minor gripe was the size of the battery pack on the rear of your head, so I was eager to try out this new smaller model. Biolite hit another home run with this one. In fact I prefer the 200 to the 330. I’ve never been in a situation where the 200 lumens weren’t enough. I only wish I could disable the silly strobe function. I’m sure someone, somewhere, has used that once…but I sure never have needed it.

    ummm…. the buttons are confusing and strap won’t stay in placeso I kind of regret getting this. I would get the black diamonds instead. I guess if you are trail running or something and you are willing to sacrifice functionality over weight. So the thing is… you have to adjust the strap every time you put it on. Which is one of those things that kind of takes the joy out of using a good headlamp. Also the buttons man… damn dude. I like to use Red light all the time, easier on the eyes, etc. When I need to use the White light, oh boy it’s like someone set the alarm off. It starts flashing in whites and reds and it’s like, dude…I would go with the black diamond. They are really really really really well designed and easy to use in terms of button control. The news ones. So overall 3 stars. But it is really light though. Crazy light weight.
