  1. For 550 lumens at a great budget price, that’s a really great deal. That seems like a really nice swivel, too. Thanks for the review!

  2. That was a great review. Ive seen that headlamp around and it seems like a pretty good one for the price. I thought about buying one but I have like 7 headlamps already

    1. You can never have too many light sources in my opinion. I have 3 flashlights and 2 headlamps just in my truck lol
      1 of each in my console, 1 of each in my trauma kit and a small flashlight in my fire kit.

  3. Instead of picking and choosing products sent to you for review why didn’t you do the honest reviews of the products that where garbage to give your viewers and subscribers a heads up on what not to buy?

    1. That is a good point. I barely have time to do videos on the things I like, but maybe I can start mixing the bad with the good for the benefit of my viewers.

  4. Thanks, Country Prepper, just ordered it. We have too many critters roaming around here @ night ~ killing the ducks, etc.

    1. It would be a good one for spotting critters. Wish something like this existed back in the 90’s when I was hunting and trapping a lot. Back then my headlamp was the same big heavy thing coal miners wore lol

  5. The only style of these flashlights from Wowtac I don’t have is Black Scout’s version. I really like all three models, and can’t say enough good things about them. I keep one in my go bag, one in my truck, and one in my office. Good to see you doing reviews Jeremiah. You did a good job on this one.

    1. Country Prepper Me either. I respect that some may want/ need the aggresive bezel, but I probably never will.
