Olight H1R Nova Headlamp Initial Impressions

Olight H1R Nova Headlamp Initial Impressions

Olight has provided this reviewer with one Olight H1R Nova headlamp for review purposes.  Additional information can be obtained directly from Olight at their WEBSITE.  My first experience with Olight’s products stemmed from getting involved with the hammock camping community here in the NorthEast.  A number of fellow hammock enthusiasts sported these headlamps which reminded me of the military MX991 right angle flashlights I remember using as a kid.  Except these Olight headlamps were TINY and super bright!!  Purchasing one has been on my list for some time and when given the opportunity to review one I jumped at the chance.

Initial Thoughts on the Princeton Tec Axis Headlamp

Princeton Tec has been making headlamps for over 40 years, and I can still remember my excitement when I bought my first Quad headlamp.

Black Diamond Iota LED Headlamp

The Iota packs a punch in a small package with a maximum light output of 150 lumens and a minimum of 4 lumens. The manufacturer indicates on the packaging that this is “a tiny rechargeable light for morning runs or post-work scrambles”.

COAST FL70 Headlamp

Not sure how many of you are as frustrated as I am (and sleepy) because it gets dark so early, and stays dark so long.  Here in Maine, its pitch dark by 4:30 pm, and still dark at 7:00 am.  Not only does this cut into my outdoor time, it makes doing anything outdoors more difficult.  Have you ever walked a mostly black dog in the dark?  She’s off leash and hard to spot, that’s for sure.  Thankfully, the COAST FL70 Headlamp has rescued me from stumbling around in the dark. I wear it while walking the dogs, while trying to see into dark spaces and keep it with me while driving in bad weather.

Check out the first part of my review HERE, and see what is so special about this light!   The COAST FL70 was provided for review purposes.

It Sure is Dark Out There

Now that the clocks have been adjusted, its getting dark awful early on the east coast.  How about where you are?  By 4:30 or so, its too dark to be out with out some type of light.  Especially if you are looking for coyote, or they are looking for you…  Check out the first part of the review of the Petzl Tikka Headlamp.
