    I have not been impressed with the overall fit and finish of the lamp, but it gets the job done. As might be expected, the battery pack is quite large. Four AA batteries, kind of large. I bought this model because a lot of my other emergency gear runs on AA batteries, and I have a good solar charger. That sort of ties me into that form factor. Sadly, there are not many good AA options, as they headlamps all run on either AAAs or CR123 lithium batteries that cost as much as a mortgage payment. This light does get quite bright, and the focusing ability functions fairly well. However, the LED housing gets very hot, and mind you, is stuck to your forehead. The actual focus dial feels very cheap and doesn't stop at either end of its travel, which makes you feel like you've broken the thing. If you adjust it past either end of the adjustment, you might lose zero and end up thinking, again, you've broken it. I feel like this could have been better designed. I will be using it until I can afford to replace it, at which point it will be left in my garage instead of in my emergency supplies.

    I use this at work since I work nights at a utility company. It is much brighter than the ones they supply us. It done use batteries pretty quick if used it a lot. About 2hrs or so. So I use rechargeable ones and keep a couple of sets in the truck. But it is a clear bright light that lets you see colors more vividly. It’s a little heavy but the head band is comfortable so you really don’t notice that much. It’s just nice to have both your hands free to work with. With the battery pack being on the back of your head if you plan on use it laying down on your back where you would rest your head on the ground (like working under a car or something) it can be a little bit uncomfortable.

    Purchased 2 of the 1800 lumen tactical flashlights and was so impressed, I had to buy this version. Very satisfied with the practicality of the many uses possible. Great for camping and jogging at night. Best Buy as usual has sold me a quality product at a great price hard to find elsewhere. Kudos once again Best Buy!

    I had bought one and it broke in less than a month, I had been using it to walk my dog at night, no excessive use and it stopped working. The store exchanged it, so I am waiting to see how this one lasts. As for the amount of light it gives is great.

    This has to be the brightest and reasonably priced headlamp. It's not heavy when worn. Fits comfortably, easy to adjust and battery installation takes a few seconds removing and securing the rubber battery case. Considering purchasing another soon!

    Good bright light. Head strap stays on snug. Only reason I didnt give 5 stars was cause I had to return one due to the knob that controls the light adjustment up and down broke. But new one works great and no issues.

    Overall it is a nice headlamp but if it was made a little better it would be a much nicer one. It is bright but I worry if over time it will break because of how you tilt it to move the light and the position of the wires.

    When you need light in the dark

    This product provided excellent light in the dark when needed. Used it for fishing and camping. Was the brightest anyone had on all my trips so far. Just don’t like the police lettering on the strap. Everyone always asks, Are you a cop?

    I have the smaller version of this for lighter work in the dar. . .but, if you need more light for the job, this will get it done and then some. It spreads the light out more and its brighter. Great buy!

    This head lamp is incredible. I am a cable and alarm technician and spend many hours a week in attics and under houses. This is by far the best head lamp I have ever owned, and I have ran through quite a few over the years.

    Well, if you are either a police officer or a security officer then this would be perfect. I am neither, so I returned this item after I realized it was labeled like that. The light is bright and works well though.

    I use this light at night for work. The light is very easy to use. It’s bright and the battery pack in the back makes it easier to adjust the light without worrying the light might fall off.

    Aside from being heavy and a bit awkward to put on light is good. Brighter and covers more area with the ability to adjust focus.

    My husband loves this. He has used it so much since Christmas. Its quite a powerful headlamp. He goes around yelling that he is "Bright Boy." What a goof.

    I’m a diesel tech and on the daily basis I need a good and bright headlight. This light is as good as the tool truck lights for half the price
