Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gman Not Durable, poor design. Fragile and brittle.
Light works great. Just don't let it fall off your head or drop out of your hand. I accidentally dropped my headlamp from a height of about 3 ft and the tabs that hold the head strap on broke off. Brittle piece of junk with poorly designed method for securing the straps. I would not recommend anyone buy this if they expect it to be rugged.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MiFi Super bright & durable
This headlamp has more than exceeded my expectations. For the past year I've used it nearly every day with household tasks and needing to see in low lit spaces to detailed mechanical repairs to yard work after dark. The 110 lumens illuminates the darkest of places and the other settings are useful depending on the environment. I've dropped it many times on wooden floors and even pavement yet it continues hold up wonderfully. I highly recommend using rechargeable batteries with this lamp for consistent brightness w/out the energy & money wastefulness of alkaline batteries. My only complaint is the combined weight, bulk and top head strap of the lamp gives me a headache if worn for more than a couple hours straight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techguy Absolute Best Bang for your Buck
I've had one for years, and just recently purchased another as a gift to my father. The AAA batteries it uses I think are far superior to the rechargeable built in styles that exist. The LED's are quality and Bright with simple and intuitive off/on switch and button. Is this an "outdoor adventuring Flashlight replacement"?.... no. But working in a dark environment, basement construction work, Theatrical Backstage work, behind your desk, on a boiler, this is an excellent product.
The top strap is also Key to keeping this positioned on your Head, and not having it slip around your neck :-)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DubsJ Do not buy this!
I got this brand because it was a few dollars cheaper than the Energizer lamp I was considering. As I was removing the product from the package, the lens fell off! Despite multiple tries, I was unable to keep the lens in place. I also had a difficult time adjusting the direction of the light, especially with the lens continually falling off. I will be returning this product to the store from which i bought it. I have already gone online, ordered and received a new one, in the brand I was previously using (Energizer). That one lasted for years (~10 yrs) but finally started to fall apart. NEVER AGAIN will I forgo good quality to save a few bucks!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by InTheDark Won't turn off
I just bought this headlight and put the batteries in. The light went on, and it would not turn off. It will switch colors and modes, but the only way I could get it to turn off was to remove the batteries. This is not the first poor-quality Defiant product that I've gotten, and I think I'll give up on this brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tmaiorca So far so good
I bought one of these because one of my co-workers had been using one. I have had it about 4 months. I'm fairly careful about how I handle it because of a post I saw that warned about the plastic breaking when it was dropped. I can see how that would happen. I do retrofit construction so I often need a lot of light. This one has that. I like the adjustment which allows the lamp to be tilted to view what I'm working on. It's comfortable and for the price it's a really good deal.
