ImpressedReview by Derek
I bought this light for adventure racing and rogaining, and although I haven't used it in a race yet, in training it appears to work very well. (Posted on 4/12/2014)
Great featuresReview by RICHARD
Just bought this headlamp after reading a few online reviews, was tossing up between a Fenix HP15 and the HC90. The inbuilt recharge port was one the main reasons I chose this model, you can enjoy all the benefits of the 18650 powered light without having to buy a separate charger. The infinite brightness adjustment is another good feature too. Build quality seems quite good. (Posted on 12/08/2014)
