Default Re: head lamps?

Energizer. I actually carry a minimum of two headlamps and a small maglite with me when I have to hike into an area. Had a disconcerting experience with a cheap hatlamp in mountain lion country 3 miles from camp last year. I made it back after two hours, was tripped four times by unseen underbrush, and it was probably just nerves, but I thought I was being stalked for an hour.

That was the last time I set off into the brush without at least two lights and a sidearm.

The Energizer headlamp is an adjustable forehead light, uses three AAA batts, has five settings, including a red light, and the full power setting throws a huge amount of light for flashlight distances from 5 large LEDs. Inexpensive as well, if I remember correctly.
