Reliable Gear for Real AviatorsFlight Outfitters Logo

Flying at night in adverse conditions can be a daunting task. Having both hands free to handle the workload during these tense situations is extremely important. This dual colored headlamp puts the right type of lighting right where you need it without tying up your hands. Dual switches allow you to turn on just the white light, or just the red light. This means you don’t have to scroll through different lights and ruin your night vision. Each color of light has a high and low setting to maximize battery life. The elastic band is adjustable and extremely soft so it stays comfortable on long flights. Uses 3AAA batteries (included).

Features:
• White LED flood light for preflight
• Red LED to preserve night vision
• High and low settings
• Focusing white flood light
• Pivoting attachment point
• Adjustable elastic band
• Can also be used as flashlight

Ease of dual color use.
My use is not aeronautical, but astronomical, therefore may be of less use for pilots. I have multiple units and all continue to work over several years. They are not physically abused, repeatedly tilted, nor is white frequently refocused. The variation between units in red uniformity/smoothness of illumination (chart reading) and white irregular zooming (end of session checking) are both troublesome, but the separate white and red switches are of great value; 2 levels of illumination is not useful to me but may be for others.

Broken on Third Use
The light itself is great. White is bright, so is the red (almost too bright for cockpit use). The light broke off of the mount on the third use.

Functions well, priced well
It's a functional headlamp optimized for pilots at a college student-affordable price point. It seems well constructed and was comfortable to wear under a headset for the duration of a typical training night cross country.

My only major concern is that the advertised battery life is rather poor compared to LED headlamps I've seen that had similar levels of functionality. I also wish that the dim white would come on before the bright white just in case a red light wasn't doing it, but at least the red light does that and there's no chance of turning on the wrong color by accident.

Overall, I am happy with this purchase.

Nice Headlamp
I have only used this once so durability and reliability are not really applicable here. It functions well and is easy to use with great flexibility in adjusting brightness and angles (up and down). The only complaint I have would be the lack of being able to adjust it any larger. The largest setting is still a little too tight for us big brained folks ( :) ). This would make a lengthy night flight a bit uncomfortable if needed.

Red light too dim
The White light works great and is relatively bright on both levels but you can't fly with white light. The Red light, even when fully illuminated is quite dull and not helpful. I would not recommend this for flying.

Great while it lasted, which wasn’t long
Loved using this during night training, but it only worked for a couple months before the lights stopped coming on. New batteries didn’t help, but not worth it to buy another one since it only worked for a short period.

Great product. Does everything advertised and is very comfortable. Nice for preflight as it gives you both hands free.

This lamp works great! Haven't had it long enough to really know how durable it really is but seems like it's pretty well made for the money. Buttons are very easy to find & lights up the panel on low quite well. The regular white light is nice & bright.

Do you have to go through white to get to red? Or can you turn red on and off without going through white?
Ted B on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can go right to red, no need to scroll through. There are independent buttons.
What is the battery life?
Richard D on Oct 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure--I've had my headlamp for five months but haven't had to use it much yet, probably less than 10 hours. I did change the batteries recently when I noticed that the red light would not stay on very long, especially if the high level of illumination is selected. The white light was still useable but I needed the red light and changing the batteries fixed the problem.
