Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb headlamp I bought my original model in 2010. It lasted for a couple of years, but then developed a broken mount. REI replaced it for free with a slightly newer model. These are excellent headlamps. I use mine primarily for camping, night hiking and night kayaking, and I have absolutely no complaints. Last month I lost it while on travel, and have just ordered the newest version. If you do a comparison between this headlamp and virtually all others on the REI site, you will find that this is by far the best headlamp for sale, and I can attest to 6 years of very frequent and satisfied use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet Proof! (figuratively) I've owned two of the Myo XP headlamps. One ended up with a short in the wire after 3 years of very rough use and Petzl replaced it for free. I've had the replacement for 2 years and have been equally hard on it and it's hanging tough like a real trooper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable and long lasting I have own two of these, both bought from REI, for 5 years. I lost one and immediately bought another from REI, then found the first one later on. I had a short in one and Petzl replaced it. A great headlamp. I use it every day, when I take my dog out for a run before daylight. I also use it for reading in bed at night, and it works great for that as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too heavy & unstable for active sports Cut to the chase: this headlamp will not stay put during active pursuits like running or ski touring. It is uncomfortably heavy, and far more prone to having the focus of the lamp pulled to a uselessly-off-center position by the cord & battery housing than a one-piece headlamp, where batteries & lamp are together on the forehead. When I realized how worthless it was for trail running, I tried mounting the MYO to my mountainbike helmet with velcro straps. It fared worse here, causing even my snuggest fitting half-shell helmets to tilt & bounce around under the considerable heft of the MYOs AA batteries. Punchline: any of the Black Diamond or Petzl one-piece headlamps utilizing AAA batteries is superior to this design, regardless of lumen output, since they'll stay put & keep a beam locked where you want it.

Can this headlamp be attached to the front of the  pack in some way and be worn at chest level?

The MYO Headlamp does not come with a mount for attaching the lamp to the sternum strap of a backpack.
