To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My headlamp arrived yesterday. I read the directions and got it charging. It was fully charged in about 2.5 hours so I ironed a shirt then went for a run.
It was totally great, I ran on the streets and through some woods with no problems. The light is bright or dim with an easy adjustment. I feel like I ran faster than usual. This was confirmed by my confidence and that the US Olympic Committee had left several messages on my phone during the run, they had sensed the disturbance in the force. I was instantly signed to several product endorsements (breakfast cereal, running shoes, apparel, the usual) and to begin recording my personal reality show. A publisher will arrive by noon today to introduce my ghost writer, the book should be on shelves by next weekend. I have now quit my job and am preparing to be the worlds greatest and richest night runner.
Be careful with this product, it will change you too.
I have a thing about headlamps. I am always looking for the perfect headlamp and I own many! This headlamp is perfect!!! All the different light/beam options on this thing are perfect. Its also programmable to fully customize for your preferences. It has ALL the options I've been looking for in a headlamp and its not even that expensive! One of the main issues I have with most head lamps out there is that you have to push the power button multiple times and cycle through all the beam functions every time you turn it off. This one does not. It has two buttons. With the factory programming right out of the box, one button turns it on to the function and brightness level you selected last and after its on the other button cycles through the different Brightness settings. And also while its off you can press the brightness button once for the reading light (low brightness and downward casting) to come on for a few moments. Which is just long enough to quickly see where something is in the dark and then it turns itself back off. Very useful feature! I love this light! Well done!!!
Amazing product. All-weather, rechargeable and long-long battery life. Soft silicone is comfortable and very shallow footprint so you forget you're wearing it after awhile. Bright and wide lighting view for peripheral vision. Reading light is 80 hours on single charge and has perfect angle down built-in! Easy 1-button for selecting modes. Cool red night light, many brightness settings for battery life. Everyone human should have one of these at all time!
After trying to set up this headlamp, knowing I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, I read and re-read the instructions. I still cannot get the light to turn on.
Besides not being able to use the headlamp for its intended purpose (as a headlamp), adjusting the size of the headlight is cumbersome, like very cumbersome. I was able to get a decent fit after lots of notch changes, which got me to my final conclusion—this thing is extremely uncomfortable! I am bald, so jokes on me, but I can't even wear this thing to look cool.
Maybe, for those with gorgeous lion-like manes who are smart enough to be capable of turning the light on, you'll have a headlamp. Although it is so uncomfortable, and turning the light on seems to be so tricky, I doubt you'll say it's a good headlamp—but you might look cool. I'll leave that to you to decide.
I am a Knog lover. Writing this review is not what I'd like to be doing right now. I'd like to be a bright light running in the night.
The Good- light weight, comfortable, bright, easy to recharge with integrated USB plug.
The Bad- Thin plastic clip for integrated USB plug also holds the silicon band together. Purchased on October 10. Clip broke on December 15 while plugging into USB charger. Headlamp can no longer be charged or worn. Major design flaw to have both the operation and charging of the headlamp dependent on a 1/16th inch plastic clip. I have KNOG bike lights that have worked flawlessly for many years. I was very hopeful this headlamp would be the same quality. I assume KNOG will honor their 2 year warranty but with this design flaw I also assume the replacement won’t last long.
But the usb connection to charge is the weak point in the design. Absolutely loved this little thing at camp and around my property at night. Went to charge it last week, pulled it apart to charge and the flimsy usb charge port left a part of the usb connector inside the cord. No way to charge now. Out of time to return so to the trash pile it went.
