      by fromGreat little light I bought this for many outdoor activities. I can use it hiking and camping, I use it in my kayak at night and even around the house sometimes. It is easy to use pretty comfortable and offers good light for such a small unit.

      by fromexcellent head lamp in a small light package This is an excellent head lamp I was worried that it wouldn't be a good replacement for an older Princeton Tec headlamp I had. This one is better in most every way. I look forward to many years of use from this lamp.

      by fromGreat replacement! This has been a great replacement for the one that came apart. There is always a use for a light that requires a no hands-on necessary tool.

      by fromGreat--when it works. The Remix has a lot going for it and I've tried so hard to love it. I bought the Remix in Green and owned it for 5 months before I rolled over on it in my tent and the plastic connecting the headstrap snapped. REI was kind enough to let me exchange it for another because I really loved the idea of it. It's a 2.9 oz, bright backpacking light. Another 5 months goes by and I'm on my first night of a three-day trip with freshly charged batteries and the high-beam starts flashing. I'm worried this is the low-battery warning, so I use it minimally and cross my fingers (Keeping pack weight down and not bringing spare batteries, mind you). I make it through the trip with the ominous flashing and replace the batteries, unfortunately it did this 2 more times. I really love this light, the headstrap was durable, the lights were 'useful' levels, I never accidentally turned it on, it was very user friendly, but I brought it back to REI and traded it for an oz. heavier. Black Diamond Storm. This light will have a spot in my heart, yes, but not in my pack.

      by fromNot Durable I've owned this headlamp for about two years. It is very small and lightweight, so it fits on your head quite well. The beam is good too. But, it's not very durable. The side latch for the batteries has broke on several occasions. When I pop it open, it breaks, making it unusable without some creative use of duct tape or super glue. However, Princeton Tec customer service is amazing. Each time it broke, I called them and they immediately shipped me replacement parts at no charge. But, this doesn't make it a good product. I guess I could try and be more gentle, but I honestly don't want to worry about that at night in the woods when my battery dies.

      by fromaverage lamp The lamp looks good and is light. Great brightness and levels. The problem here is the battery cover. Just like all their other models, the battery latch is VERY easy to break. DON'T open the way they tell you too with the plastic on the band. Use your finger. If it does break, they will send you a new cover, good luck trying to get the old one off let alone the new one on. The battery cover and lack of waterproofing are my only complaints.

      by fromUntrustworthy Okay, so I originally gave this thing 4 stars but after having it for a few months I actually called REI to have them delete my review (the only way to remove it) so that I could write a new one. I had the top review and I didn't want people to be mislead. I hate giving this 2 stars because it has a lot going for it. Here is the good: Low-profile, good battery life, can be aimed down, straight or up. Never feels "boingy" since the light rotates instead of being "pulled" down. Comfortable, lightweight, Made in the USA (foreign and domestic parts). Outstanding lighting performance; the 3-leds provide a lot of light for up-close lighting (I have the white LED's) and the single maxbright LED is VERY bright and has a fairly natural hue that doesn't wash out colors like most LED's. The single maxbright LED is the highest quality LED I've seen on a headlamp Okay, so why only 2 stars? Well from the get-go I could tell the build-quality was mediocre. The plastic felt overly-hard (not "durable" hard, but "might shatter into a thousand pieces" hard). The battery-compartment door is difficult to open and feels like you could fairly easily break it if you didn't open it carefully. The "click mechanism" that allows you to move the lamp up/down is overly stiff and feels pretty low-quality. Also, there is no o-ring on the battery compartment. Since I wasn't planning to drop it, or use it in harsh conditions, I figured it would be fine...well it wasn't. After 2 months it started flashing periodically even though it has no strobe mode. It progressively got worse and worse over the course of a few days until it was flashing almost all the time (batteries were fine, but low-batteries shouldn't cause that problem anyway). Luckily I'm an REI member so I just took it back and got another one. After just 2 months (and only about 2-3 hours of actual use) it started doing the strobe thing AGAIN. I returned it and ordered the Petzl Pixa 2 because I want something really durable/simple that I don't have to worry about. Anyway, the performance on this little guy is great and the weight/size is awesome...but the build-quality is totally mediocre and having the same problem on 2 units in just a four-month span tells me this product simply cannot be trusted, and honestly I am dubious about ANY Princeton Tec products after this experience. My advice would be to buy a Petzl...their LED quality is not as good but their headlamps are overall the most reliable IMO.
