Comments about eGear EQ2 Ultralight Utility Light:
This headlamp performed flawlessly on a recent 10day winter backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. It offers three modes: On, Strobe, and Off. The light casts a very well-defined, narrow spot, so trying to illuminate a large area is impossible. However, it is quite impressive during night hikes and camp chores. The listed weight is off by a touch, but I believe that is because they are not including the headband. Mine weighs 34grams with batteries and headband included. Rain proof, shock proof, 20+ lumens, lightweight, and inexpensive. I am very impressed. One drawback: no red light option. For ultralight backpackers on a budget, this one can not be beat!
