The Xtreme Bright Ultra Bright Zoomable LED Head Torch comes quite well presented. Upon opening the box you can see that the headlamp is securely positioned in a foam insert with a leaflet inside. Unfortunately, the headlamp did not come provided with the 3 AAA batteries required to run it, however lucky for me there is always a supply at home.
Having used headlamps in the past that were admittedly from the lower end of the market my expectations for this one were not the highest but that was soon to change.
Upon removing the headlamp from the box the quality was evident immediately and in comparison to what I had experienced previously it is definitely of premium quality.
The head strap is made of a strong elastic fabric type of material and as well as being adjustable also has a strap that not only goes across the top of the head but also around it ensuring that the light remains securely in place.
Being a regular walker the perfect opportunity to test this was in the woods. Now as any of you know the woods and evening equals a dark place one that I definitely wouldn’t go without some form of lighting. I’ve seen the horror movies not that a light would help but still…
The light itself illuminated the area quite far in front and enabled me to see the path I was walking a good distance ahead. For me, where this headlamp excelled was in the manoeuvrability of the light itself. With the ability to move the whole lighting unit to point straight ahead or down and anywhere else in between.
Being expected with a head lamp of this calibre the fun starts with the zoom ability of the lamp itself. Zooming of the light is achieved by simply twisting the front lens and you will notice that the beam width will change enabling you to either pinpoint a specific point or cover a wider area.
This head lamp is great for anyone that takes part in outdoor activities whether walking or hiking on the evening or simply camping with the family.
Honestly, at this price it would have been nice and even expected to have batteries included but the build quality and overall usage experience with this head torch makes up for this downfall.
