Think big by thinking small. Although smaller and lighter than its big brothers Fuel and Remix, the PRINCETON TEC® Byte headlamp is capable of packing a powerful punch thanks to a white Maxbright LED. A red ultrabright LED ensures your night vision will never be compromised. Byte is equipped with an asymmetrical single-arm bracket, easily accessible battery door enclosure, and large push-button switch, all at a mere 64 grams.

The white light might be OK, but the main reason I bought it was for the red light. The red light is worthless in this light with new batteries. I can't imagine what it would be with them running down. with new batteries you can't see six feet in front of you. inside a tent might be OK, but outside? forgetaboutit. I paid full price for it, but wish I lived closer so I could take it back. an 1.5 hour trip one way just isn't worth it.
I didn't want to buy the same one my wife did. I liked black. Although hers has a little pad to rest against the forehead, I don't know if that would make it comfortable or not. I do like the way mine diffuses the light and it offers plenty for walking after dark. I found my wife's was annoying to my peripheral vision because of its brightness.
Would it a great headlamp if it didn't drain batteries while not in use. With fresh batteries I really like this lamp, but put it away for a week with brand new batteries in it and it'll be close to useless when you next reach for it.
I work back stage helping with costume changes in the theatre. For this most recent show, I needed a light AND both hands available. The headlamp I bought works PERFECTLY! It gives me enough light to see and do all the work I need to in the dark!
Straight out of the package this headlamp is simple, easy to use and simple to set up. It offers dual modes of brightness as well as a very bright red light which is great for hunters traveling to there deer stands in the early morning darkness. Affordability, brightness & dependability make this headlamp a must have!
