Strengths:    Nearly undestruktible. Good holder. Easy to use.

Weaknesses:    Very dim. Alone in the dark not usable. In the town bright enough to be seen.

Bottom Line:   
For trails in the Forrest total useless. Its okay in town as a safety light.

Strengths:    Seems sturdy

Weaknesses:    Not a very bright light.

Bottom Line:   
SKIP IT!! Seems more like a Walmart/Target 'Bell' product. You'll see this Cateye light for sale at around $8.00. There's a reason for that. This headlamp is not very bright for a halogen and you'll be glad you spent the extra $10-$20 for a REAL light.
