Great headlampBought this for a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It performed beautifully. For the money, it is a great piece of kit.

Great lightsI have used these headlamps for over 10 years. I even purchase these for new outdoorsman and scouts. only downside is the battery indicator that draws power even when the light is off.
if storing for any extended period remove the batteries.

MUST HAVE item!Be sure to pack one of these for your next outdoor adventure or fishing excursion! Works great for late evening outdoor activities. Use it to light up your tent, cabin or home in the middle of the night when you're "in a hurry". Excellent when electricity goes out, too. A MUST HAVE item for cleaning fish or game when you have no electricity.

The Good and the BadI have had this light for a number of years and it is still functional. However, I am disappointed in the durability of the case. There are cracks in the lens area as well as the housing, but the unit has never been subjected to any shocks, drops or strain. It looks bad and is no longer waterproof, but it still works.

Poor Quality ProductWhile I have owned the Cabela's Alaskan Guide Series Princeton Tec headlamp for a couple of years, I have used it very lightly. It has been relegated to indoor use during a handful of power outages. (Handful = 5). When replacing rechargeable batteries recently, one of the two plastic posts that secure the headband mount snapped off. Before you ask, the headlamp has always been stored in a climate controlled environment, within a shoebox, and has never seen direct sunlight. In other words, there should be no deterioration of the plastic due to use or storage conditions. While I hope this was an isolated incident, designing a "Guide Series" headlamp with cheap plastic headband mount posts is a poor decision. Very disappointed.

Broke on the MountainThere's no question that this headlamp casts good light. I was pleased with at least that. But physically operating the hinging mechanism of the lamp while it was on my head was difficult to do, especially with gloves on.
Not only was it hard to move, it clicked loudly at each interval of adjustment, which was loud enough that if game was nearby it would've been heard.
And one night while coming down the mountain in the darkness, blow-down everywhere at every step, I reached up to adjust the lamp's beam direction in order to point the light more or less at my feet so I could navigate the woody debris, terrain, and slope better.
Imagine my disappointment when that last loud click of the lamp's hinge mechanism was one of the two plastic hinge-pins on the lamp snapping off, thus causing the lamp itself to fall to the ground.
The headlamp then did a great job of lighting up the earth while laying on the mountain, but it was no longer on my head where I needed it to be. The rest of the trip down the steep ridge and to Camp was spent holding the headlamp in my hand while the headlamp's band remained on my head. Not cool.
I got only three days use of the brand new headlamp. Thankfully I had a spare headlamp back in Camp for the rest of my season.

Withstood the test of timeI've had mine for 10+ years now and outside of a small crack in the housing, it never fails to work. 3 modes of intensity are great when you don't want to be blinded in the dark morning hours and the higher intensity gives you plenty of light to see those blocks you're setting out before day break. Mine stays with me in the duck boat. Worth the price. I'd buy another if they are of the same quality...

not as goodBought 3 for the kids, getting ready for the camping season. when they arrived looked very nice. Had trouble putting the batteries in was very hard & did not fit into the slots properly, took a bit of effort. The amount of light which was given out was quite good and last about 6 hours which we used them for. The down side of the product was the on & off switch at the top. this was very hard to push down and sometimes faulty which didnt work well. We needed to keep taking the head set off to really push with a lot of effort to turn them on or off. The kids could not get them working as also was to hard. Shame didn't expect that as they were looking great with the branding. will try to find a better quality one. Could not return them as i am overseas.
