Review by Troy on Oct. 24, 2007
My favorite headlamp. Very bright, very long life (you can tell the battery regulator works because it doesn't just peter out like a normal LED), the extra lens really helps spread out the beam. Both modes give a nice even light spread without the concentric circles that a typical bulb puts out. I've hit up single track MTB trails in the dark with nothing but this light. Also does real well for caving.
Like all LEDs doesn't have a huge range and the beam scatters quickly.
If you want something with more range the Myo 5 does a good job with its 5 LEDs plus Xenon bulb.

long life, doesn't turn on in bag, light, and bright
Spot it not bright enough to see next belay or partner. Band doesn't sit even but pulls to side. Pulses with power indicator making it insane to read with. Trying to sell it to a buddy who will only be using it as insurance for their day hikes

Impressive headlamp, Petzl quality. Great battery life and even brightness throughout with the regulator. Diffuser lens is great at both widening the beam and protecting the lamp itself.
It's a bit heavy and tends to slide down, but that is to be expected with any battery pack lamp. Not too sure of the importance of the boost feature
Check out the Mammut Lucido Tx1.

The light quality its great when you need it the most, climbing in the dark and anything else where you would need more lumes than usual AAA headlamps
I've returned this headlamp 3 times within the past 4 years....There is flaws in the eternal wire construction. If this gets snagged by accident your out of luck and i sucks when it happens out in the field. I keep on replacing it an coming back to it for its performance... just don't count on it lasting years

Review by gifffoley on Dec. 16, 2009
I am writing this review after only using it for two weekends, but I an impressed by the light. The adjustable beam settings are great. It also has a great feature that prevents the light from mistakenly being turned on. Very lightweight - all around quality construction - fits very well on my snug and bald head.
The feature that prevents it from being turned on easily makes it a little bit more difficult to quickly have light. Also, it does not come with a red light to maintain night vision and I have not looked into an alternative that would fit over the lens.

Review by llengland on Aug. 02, 2011
I've used a lot of different headlamps over the years, this is by far my favorite. Long battery life and decent beam.
Minor wiring problems, but nothing that would keep me from buying this lamp.
