As an ex sailor/camper/caravanner, and now motorhome user; I know the value of two hands free for use!
Whereas my wife used to hold the torch for many applications, she is now free for many other jobs.
The longevity of the batteries with the new LED technology is very convenient, and gives confidence to undertake longer projects in dark conditions. Jobs around the home especially in attics are eased considerably, I would however recommend a high end system with rear of head battery pack for extended use; I have used both, and cannot stress enough the value of the former!

Let me start with the positives - like all LED Lenser products, the beam is great. Strong and bright. The battery seems to be good, although i've not put it to test over a long period yet. Comfortable to wear.
The negatives; I had to return the first one as the cabling in the original had been caught in the, awful awful plastic shrink wrapping and broke. (LED Lenser - please revert back to boxes for your products. Much better!).
I would have liked it to have an option of changing the beam/spot size so you can change depending on your activities.
Would recommend for a relatively cheap headtorch.

This is really bright, and a big step above any other head torches I've had in the past.
The battery pack fits on the back of the head, which might make it a little uncomfortable if wearing for long periods, but it's very easy to turn on and off, nice elastic for a firm fit, and the torch can be angled downwards to make sure you see what you want to see.
Very powerful as well - blinds other people if you try to look them in the eye!!

A good bright light for which Lenser are renowned. Adjustable for size and even fits on my small head without slipping, which is unusual as I can rarely get hats to fit for example. Really useful to have in a power cut and for camping, etc. Battery pack a bit uncomfortable after a while but I do not deduct stars for this as it has to go somewhere!

product excellent, is really bright and shines a very long way, much stronger than my other headtorchs, seems sturdily enough and has lasted being used morning and night walking the dark without having to change batteries yet would buy again if need be.
