Product Description

Man this thing is bright and it keeps on ticking. The large variety of light strngth makes it powerful enough to spot things over 75ft. away yet soft enough to comfortably read a book in your tent at night. A solid product, highly recomended. However it is a little bulky, so it might not be the best for backpacking. I could see it being very useful thing things like caving.

Features

The Corona regulated-LED headlamp floods your entire field of vision with an even distribution of light. Designed to reduce eye fatigue, the Corona's wide beam eliminates the need for your eyes to adjust quickly from very bright to dark areas, as they do with standard, narrow beam lights. Excellent peripheral lighting simulates normal daylight conditions and allows you to take advantage of your entire field of vision without moving your head. Proprietary heatsink technology and eight shock-resistant, wide-angle Ultrabright LEDs are the foundation of the Corona. You can switch between 8-, 5-, 3- or 1-LED output, making it a great hands-free lighting choice to satisfy all of your outdoor, work and personal lighting needs. An innovative circuit system allows you to fine-tune the brightness level on each of the four LED modes so you can go from flooding your entire camp site in bright light to reading in your tent. Shine light where you need it using the pivoting head assembly. For the perfect fit, adjust the durable nylon head strap.

TimBGreat light for the $$$

Voted 5/5

I have been using the Corona a bunch this last fall and winter.
I like the variety of brightness and flood/spotlight settings,which give you a good many lighting options.
The only drawback I can think of for the Corona is that the buttons can be a bit difficult to operate when wearing gloves.
The head strap fits well, and seems fairly comfortable. Someone mentioned the light being a bit bulky-I don't find that to be the case.
All in all, a good light at a good price.
