"Awesome Headlamp - 950 Lumens!!!"

So I got me a new headlamp and it's awesome! 950 lumens!!! Really, really bright! For those of you who hike around much in the dark and who are looking for something a bit brighter, here you go.

It's the Fenix HL60R Rechargeable. Waterproof, aluminum housing, 5 light settings. The light is on sale a Black Ovis right now for $74.95. I didn't know it was available at Black Ovis and I actually bought mine from Amazon. I got the package that comes with an extra 3400mAh battery for $91.45. Having an extra battery might be a good idea for those of you who do multi-day backpacking trips. If most of your hunting is from a location where you have a way to recharge it, a single battery will probably be fine.

I tested the light on high (950 lumens) and it runs 2 hours on the 2600mAh battery and 2-1/2 hours plus on the 3400. Now that's at 950 lumens! Most of the time, you probably wouldn't need to run it on "Turbo" mode. That's more for when you really need that powerful light to watch for bears or moose in the trail ahead of you. You can get 10-30 hours at the regular settings.

The light is a bit heavier than the plastic units, but it's not a real big deal. A few ounces is all. Anyway, it's a really nice light and the power is sweet. I do a lot of backpacking at night and my old lamp ran at about 50 lumens. It'll be nice to have 950 when I need it.

I 've been using Ay Up lights for years. Bullet proof and dead reliable.

Still a good deal on these headlamps. Maybe they'll remain a good deal forever. Anyway, powerful light for those in need.

Still a real good deal on this headlamp, if any of you are looking. I really like mine.
