Unintentionally I ordered this model instead of the one with the additional red filter option which would have been very useful not to blind people and pets. My slip, but never mind -- this will do well, and I'll just have to be a bit careful or change the beam angle if turning directly towards anyone/anything. The light is really excellent: even at the economy level it's far better than a little head torch (my first one) picked up at a local supermarket which was way too low-powered. I don't need it for any serious outdoor pursuits, only for a hands-free easier life (without carrying a normal torch) while seeing to various chores outside through the longer winter nights -- also very handy for rooting round in dark sheds and cupboards!
The headband seems robust enough to stand up to plenty of use, and is very soft and comfortable to wear, and the whole thing is surprisingly lightweight. I like the adjustable angles too. If I'm ever flush maybe I'll buy the one I intended to sometime, but this will do nicely meanwhile. It arrived in double-quick time by standard mail from Simply Scuba.
