I just used this for the first time last night on a night hike from Dry Canyon and back down Battlecreek. Me and my friend (he had a ZipkaPlus) weren't very familiar with the trail but had no real difficulties following it. The range of the lamp isn't all that great but it is definetly bright. I don't think it would work if you were wearing anything on your head (hat, helmet, etc.) The zip could be tighter but it still works great even when running down a steep rocky trail. Slips a little when sweaty but for the price, lightness, and brightness it is a good buy. I love it, someday It'll probabaly become a backup, but till then I love it.
ps it's very cool that it only takes 3 aaa batteries instead of expensive lithium ones
