    Bicycle Help Me Select A Bicycle Taillight

    I'm not sure on the flash pattern, but I always recommend using more than one rear light. One flashing and one solid, but both bright enough to be daytime visible. I have one mounted my pack and one on the seat post. I've had Cygolite, Niterider, Superflash, Magicshine, and they all got the...

    Hands Free Light For Around The Campfire?

    I like the headband for many different mounting solution other than on the head. As mentioned already you can wear it around your neck. I also use mine as a waist mounted light, wrist mounted light, and bicycle headlight all using the same headband and also hang the light from the band to use...

    Flood vs Floody beam types

    Full flood (mules) are awesome for organizing basement, cleaning out garage, etc. Also When doing night walks/runs I use a h602w waist mounted to supplement my h600w headlamp. More often than not I use the magic tape diffusing trick to diffuse my h600w and make it more floody. For reading I...

    Looking for a good reading Healamp - 2017

    I found using my Zebralight h602w mule light a bit distracting for reading as it lights up outside of the book pages just as bright as the pages thenselves. I like my zebralight h52fw better for reading as it is more concentrated light in the middle on the pages themselves. I find this lights...

    Manker LAD, a new 219c option, alternative to the Tip?

    My Manker Lad is definitely like the top pic. It must be the earlier version. Shouldn't take much to correct it though when I get a chance.

    Manker LAD, a new 219c option, alternative to the Tip?

    I just bought the Manker Lad 219c to replace my Nitecore Tip cool white keychain light. I like the Nitecore tip, but the accidental activation is really killing it's usefullness for me and I am not a fan of the cool white. I bought the tip on preorder and no hi cri version was available at...

    Headlamp for outdoor cooking

    Although it doesn't use common batteries or usb rechargeable without the use of a seperate charger, the first headlamp that comes to mind is the zebralight h600fd III. The headlamp price is $89 which I consider a bargain for such a nice light. It opens up more options too when you go to 18650...

    trail running headlamp recommendations please

    Great post Thinairdesigns. That's the same thing I did with my 3 Zebralights. It puts the weight of headlamp directly againts the strap and not left up to the flimsy silicone holder. Huge improvement in stability and more comfortable too. So much more stable that the top strap isn't needed...

    Zebralight H600, H600w, H600F, H600Fw Mk III XHP35

    Just curious if you have contacted support on your switch failures? If outside of warranty I have read they can repair lights at a reasonable cost. I haven't had an issue with my 3 zebralights yet, but like to hear if folks have positive results using zebralight support.

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Headlamp Mods for Waist Light I didn't really care for the feel of the gopro chest mount and also there was some arm shadowing going on depending on where your arms are during a run. Mainly it feels more comfortable on my waist and I can easily forget they are there on the waist. I think I...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Headlamp Mods for Waist Light I have some experience with waist mounted and chest mounted lights as well as headlamps. I've tried different combos of beam patterns on the waist, but my favorite is a Zebralight H602w on the waist which is a mule type light. I tried the H600w on the waist...

    Does anybody owned Lupine wilma RX 14 ?

    I own an older version Lupine Betty and Wilma and they are indeed high quality stuff, but I wouldn't recommend them for caving. They wont be as water tight as some of the caving specific lights and also they use a glass lens in front which could break on impact. Someone posted pictures of one...

    Armytek Wizard Pro XHP50 V3 field use review.

    Thanks, I forgot about the xhp50 quad die. I guess I was thinking along the lines of the way Zebralight does theirs. They use a different leds on their current models xhp35 on the mk iiis it seems.

    Armytek Wizard Pro XHP50 V3 field use review.

    Nice review as always Woods Walker. I have been watching this light since it was first announced. I always go for neutral whites in headlamps and the warm version looks nice with an excellent beam profile for all around use. I would like to see armytek put out a version without the honeycomb...

    Compact headlamp + 18650 power pack

    I Have several headlamps, three Zebralights, two Gloworm X2 lights, Two Lupines, and a few cheaper ones. I've used both the Gloworm and Lupine in the Winter here, but only down to about -10F so I have no idea how they would do in -40! That is a very harsh environment for most anything. The...

    What is the best headlamp for running?

    Simply rerouting the zebralight headband makes it very stable. It has been discussed on the forums before. The idea is to transfer the weight of the light to the band and take it off of the flimsy silicone holder. It works great for my 52fw, H600w, and H603w. No more bouncy bounce and more...

    What is the best headlamp for running?

    Roger-Roger just for your info Action-Led still does the upgrade to neutral white emitters for $20 so I went ahead and paid for my two gloworm x2 lights to be changed over. Jim at Actionled has been helpful and I'm boxing up the lights now to send in. My main use for these lights will be...
