Fits My NeedsReview by Jonathan
This is the perfect headlamp if you are fit the following two criteria:

1) Wear a cap for hiking, as the Photon can clip to the bill very easily (surprisingly sturdy, might I add)
2) Plan on using it mostly around camp

The light emitted from this small LED Mico Light is illuminating, but not a harsh light like those headlights from that car in your rearview. It shoots a good enough distance to do basic things around camp (e.g. staking a tent, cooking for those midnight munchies, etc.) or just hanging out. Personally, I have not used it for night hiking, but I think it would manage okay, though there are better options out there.

All in all, if you want a small profile LED to clip-on your hat for toying around your campsite this is it.

A very good optionReview by Eric
I would love this light if I didn't also have the Petzl that GG sells. This is a high quality, well made light with a few different attachment options and variable brightness. However, it doesn't win out vs the more expensive (and somewhat heavier) option. It's hard to mount this in a way that simulates a headlamp so for night hiking you're holding it in your teeth (hard to breathe) or wedged in fingers with your trekking poles (which isn't comfortable). Around camp it's tough to do tasks at night with a hand occupied.

That said, it's definitely fine and I plan to keep using mine. It also has a great clip so I can attach it to my pack or tent or clothes and always have it at hand. (Posted on 11/5/15)
