    Default New Zebralight headband

    I bought a H600Fc this week and was surprised at the new headband. It feels smooth like a car seatbelt but is still elastic. I wore it for 5 hours today and it feels good. It should clean up easier if handled with dirty hands. I noticed the price of replacement headbands had gone up when I bought the H600Fc. Maybe this is why.

    Well well looks like itís time for me to replace my old worn headband after all.
    Did you get it directly from ZL?

    Yes direct from Zebralight. In my picture you can see how shiny the new headband is. The pic of the replacement one on the Zebralight website looks like the regular older ones.
    Maybe an email to Zebralight could tell us what to expect

    looks like a material which will not age well.

    Looks just like the headband I got in late 2019 with the H600Fc. I presume they must have switched awhile ago.

    Too soon to tell if it ages well, but no signs of deterioration on mine. I use it almost every day. I also ordered an extra GITD band, but I haven't used that yet.

    I find the straps have a tendency to loosen a bit over time. The buckle will slowly slip the headband through it, since the material is kind of smooth. But I retighten it about once every month or two, and that's fine.

    I've found over time my old style stretched and looks like bacon (curvy) lol. This looks promising!

    Now ZL, please give us a rigid quick release plastic mount like ArmyTeks, and improve your damn pocket clips!

    Ordered a H502PR Headlamp last week, light has arrived, it still had the old style headband.
    Just an update for y'all...

    i have a good amount of imagination 's all, haha

    i had been wearing the olight H1 Nova headband regularly (not excessively) and it's become so loose (i.e. weak) that it's unusable anymore, like my old underpants.
    I'm gonna buy a new pair of underpants and i doht regret having purchased the H1 product 2 years ago but i wouod never rebuy the olight headband spare part.
    i simply retired the entire product and use the fenis hm61r instead. great great headband. so far.
