    I have seen in this thread that some of the silicone mounts for the h600 include a slot for a third strap. Are the latest h600's being shipped with the updated top-strap-capable mount? I'd like one of these, but a floppy headlamp is a dealbreaker.

    I got mine the other day and it didn't.

    I had ordered some extra H600 holders from ZebraLight in early December to experiment with and the ones I got (both black and GITD) had the extra slots.

    I ordered my h600w on 1/8 from Zebralight. It came with the third slot in the silicon mount.

    I'm still amazed at how much lighter it is than my sc600w...

    hook63: I'm thinking that it's *possible* that you misunderstood the question that was being asked (and my apologies for further questioning, but I just want to be clear). I think you might have thought that finn was asking about the strap itself and not just the slot for the strap.

    Are you sure the rubber mount on yours does NOT have an extra slot for a strap? Not a top strap itself (they don't come with a top strap), but a slot for a strap.

    For clarity sake (the previously posted photo doesn't show it well), here are two photos that show the slot clearly:

    Thanks, B0wz3r. I posted quite a bit more about using the strap on the back of a baseball cap in the ZebraLight Mods thread (both with the H600 and smaller lamps like the H501). This particular cap has a quick-release clip, so it's really easy to use this way. And flipping the cap around and using the holder on the back of the cap basically eliminates the visor-related interference problems that are typically an issue when someone wants to wear a cap and a ZL headlamp on a ZL headband. Take a look at posts 169 and 171 of the ZebraLight Mods thread, if interested.

    When I ordered this light, it said back-ordered; so I was surprised to see the shipping notice the very next day.

    It's been five days now, and the tracking number still doesn't work. Should I be worried? I don't mind waiting, but I wouldn't mind being able to track it. Does this have anything to do with the back-order? Do they print the shipping label ahead of time or something?

    For those of you shipping to Canada via airmail (presumably from China, although I hear some people say the H600 is shipping out of texas), how long is it taking for your tracking number to kick in?

    Pacificwing, make sure you're going to the right site to insert the tracking number. That Endicia site (or whatever the name) that's linked via hyperlink in the messages might not tell you what you need to know. For instance, for USPS tracking numbers, I do better to copy and paste the tracking number directly in the USPS tracking system at usps.com.

    Are you actually in Canada? Just making sure. If so, my guess is that it's coming from Irving, Texas to your location. Also, the e-mail you received (if it has really shipped) should be titled "Order Shipped" followed by your order number if it was truly a shipping notice. Make sure it was actually an "Order Shipped" notice and not just a "New Order" receipt.

    Tried USPS, china post tracking (there seem to be two sites for this), and canada post. I understand once it enters canada customs it shows up on canada post. I've also tried hong kong post for good measure.

    Yes, I'm in Canada. The e-mail I got said "order shipped" with an order number. The e-mail included a tracking number.

    I'm guessing I just have to wait a little more. It's probably nothing, but every time i've ordered on-line before the tracking has usually kicked in by now.

    Yeah, I've received something like four orders directly from ZebraLight and when I got the "order shipped" e-mail it always showed up in the USPS tracking within about a day. If it's shipping from Texas (which would be my guess), I can't see why it would take so long to appear in the mail tracking system.

    What I'd suggest is doing a direct reply to the Order Shipped message and ask them. The reply should go straight to ZL Customer Service and you should get an answer pretty quickly. Just let them know you're concerned because you can't seem to track the package and my guess is they'll be able to update you.

    If the Xtars won't fit I recommend just ordering some bare Sanyo 2600 (red wrapper) cells from Ric at cnqualitygoods, they are only $6 each and are the same cell used in the Xtar/AW/whatever genuine 2600mah cells, just without the PCM and extra wrapping (so smaller). While protected cells are normally a safer choice, in a light like the zebralight with it's own protection mechanism built in you may as well use unprotected ones.
    ..wait a minute, if it's the battery cutting out, then how would turning the tail cap turn it on again, every time? I think this rules out the battery?

    If voltage sags enough on a low-quality chinese battery, the ZL internal protection could trip. The ZL battery cutoff is probably programmed to remain active as long as V>0.

    I can't compare it to anything but H501 which is not fair. It is warm, no blue anywhere in the beam. it behaves like any warm rated 600 lumen.
    big wall of light, some throw but not as much as a 600 Lumen Klarus XT11. it has an insanely low moon mode which is enough to walk around
    a known path at night...you can put your eye up close and look at the emitter in that mode it is so mild.

    Thanks for the info! I'll look into it. I personally hate wearing a cap backward but I might make an exception for something like this. Of course, I use my Spark ST5-190nw for cap-on situations, and my H51w for cap-off situations, so it's nice to have excuse to have two headlamps! My wife's been on a fitness kick the past year and has lost 60 lbs and is now really into running. She's also quite the backyard astronomer, so I bought her one of the H51Fr's for Christmas this year. She uses as a tail light for her bike as well as for astronomy too. So, I sent her a copy of your pic as I thought she might like to try it for running, but she's not much of a hat person... Regardless, I'll have to give this one a try and see how it works for me.

    Both my original H600w that came last week and its replacement that came today had the added 3rd strap slot. I hadn't noticed it till I saw the picture...and had to get mine to see.

    Here's another version of a non-floppy h600w. The only problem with this setup is that you need grippier straps to keep the whole setup from sliding around on your head.

    Nice work on that top strap, finn. It looks like from the image that you keep the holder slot to the bottom of the light so that the top strap has some extra "grab" on the body of the light.

    Yeah, I flipped the holder. Then the end of the strap with the sewn tab got looped under and pressed through the slot. The slot holds the tab well enough. By passing it in front of the light, the up/down momentum of the light is converted into torque which opposes the flopping motion.

    The main band can also be re-routed to double back through the side slots, which in itself really helps to reduce bounce. If doing both that and the top strap like you did, I have to guess that any movement of the lamp body would be even further reduced. Using both methods would really help. I'll have to try that myself.

    Just got my H600, it's an awesome feeling having 750 lumens shining from your forehead.

    The honeymoon is over for me. Pure white tint is where it's at for me. CRI is nice, but over rated IMO.

    Did you order an H600w and still waiting for it? Or waiting for them to come back as "in stock" with ZebraLight (or elsewhere)?
