Big deal, it is still a BD. Don't get me wrong, I love their climbing gear, but when it comes to headlamps, buy a petzl. I have had them since the early nineties, and haven't had one fail yet.

It is a lightbulb, a battery and a wire, how BD can F**k that up is beyond me.

I've got a zenix IQ and have been really happy with it. It actually performs better than my Myolite. but thats just me.

Yes...I have this headlamp and it rocks. I also own Petzl and they too rock. Not sure why someone has the hate on BD though. Never had an issue with their lamps and I have had one with Petzl. Six of one, half dozen....

I actually agree with summer prophet, I have owned three BD headlamps so far, they are crap compared to Petzl.
