By David

Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

I wasn't sure whether I wanted to get this headlamp or a more expensive one, but I'm glad I went with this one! It fits snug and doesn't bounce much, and the light is surprisingly bright. The different settings are nice, and you can tilt the beam to however you like. I wanted a headlamp with a rechargeable battery, but this weighs next to nothing using 3 AAAs. The battery life is good. I have used it on about 10 runs, including a 2 hour long run. The long run was on a forest trail in the fog and dark, and I never stumbled or lost my way thanks to this product. The one other thing I wanted in a headlamp was a light on the back, and the Road ID firefly light attaches nicely to the strap, and I recommend using that product to make this one even better.

Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

I actually use mine around my waist, attached to my waist pack or fuel belt. It works perfectly well like this in the case you don't want to wear it on your head - frankly, it's not that comfortable to run with it on your head...

Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

Works very well but the housing is plastic and so the snap closure for the battery case broke. Now I have a rubber band holding it shut. I probably dropped it a few too many times.

      Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

      This is a great product on the road or at home. I am very happy on the road with this. It fits well, I like the fact that you can move it up and down and that it flashes also. I also use it at home at night around the house and it's great there too. An all around wonderful product.

      Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

      I love mine. It puts out great light and fits snug. The three settings are useful for conserving your batteries when the light is coming up in the mornings. But like the previous reviewer, my battery case broke and now I'm using tape to hold mine together. The snap should be fortified for the next model. Thanks.

      They updated the model with a 4 led at the same price, this one is only 3 led.

        The light was very bright and I liked the ability to adjust it. The four varieties of light options was also very good. I was impressed with the power and the length of time the batteries provide. It is a good running light for night and trail usage.

            Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

            I was pleasantly surprised by light weight (I wear it on my Brooks Night Life hat), brightness and stability. You can select bright, dim or blinking light -- very visible as cars approach you. Adjustable beam is very handy. Don't know about battery life yet, because I haven't used up the first set I installed...Highly recommended.

            Comments about Princeton Tec Fuel LED Headlamp Safety:

            I have been running in the dark for a while and never knew these types of headlamps existed! I was not sure which one to get because I didn't want to spend a fortune, so I went with this one. I am really happy with the headlamp. It's very lightweight and doesn't bounce while I'm running. I do run with it on the brightest setting which is pretty bright. The other settings don't really help me all that much.

            Overall a wonderful product and worth getting!
