    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headlamp for all purpose use I recently bought a Nitecore P16 flashlight and based on the build quality and features of this light I then bought the HC50 head lamp. I am extremely impressed with this light. It sits well on a cap, is adjustable for beam angle, and the output is very easy to adjust without having to see the controls. I use this light at home and when hunting or camping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Notecore headlamp Excellent headlamp. I run a lot, and this has really helped me as it gets darker. The headlamp has a great range, and angle. As bright as having a mag light on your heas, but not nearly as heavy. The strap over the top of the head, definitely helps keep it in place

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product I use very often these lamps in my daily services. However, all the ones I have tried failed to work after a year. Too much plastic. This is the only one I found with aluminum structure I hope it will last.
