I like this lamp very much for the following reasons:
- it's regulated: always generates the same amount of light even if batteries discharge in time; no more faded light.
- it's powerful (+ wide angle lens): I remember one winter night with heavy snowfall, while searching our way in the woods - I really appreciated it
- accepts Lithium batteries which have superior performance in cold weather
The cost for all listed features is its weight. It's heavier than other headlamps and more expensive.
