Good lightweight head torch
Saturday, 26 November 2016  | 

Purchased with Fenix 3500mA battery. Torch very good, appears very well made & seals good. Gives more of a broad beam wash than a spotlight which is nice for walking as it highlights close-up but you won't pick objects at long range. Nice & light on the head. On/off switch simple to operate, just press & off you go. The battery data meant I expected 3h, 45m @ 400 lumen but realistically I get more like 3h, 15m.

Would of been 5 stars, the torch is brilliant, ordered the best battery to go with it from your list, but didn't realise it came without the charger for the rechargeable battery. Fast service, packaged well, highly recommend you try these torches.


Response:

Thank you for your review and feedback, we do mention that you will need to purchase a charger in the product description if you do not already have one. We will try to make this more obvious if possible.

Brilliant Head Torch
Sunday, 20 September 2015  | 

Have just returned from a weekend camping in a woodland my family own in North Yorkshire. Previously I had been using an LED Lenser head torch model which I found uncomfortable and the beam awkward going between a narrow spot and a wider 'circle'. This FENIX HL55 is brilliant, plenty of different settings to allow you to either read a book or walk at speed through dense woodland in the pitch black without having to turn your head every step to light up the peripheral areas. The spill and broad bean pattern is perfect for all types of outdoor night time walking. I happily strode around the wood at close to midnight without falling over logs or catching my feet on brambles...there was no way I could have done that with my previous torch. Build quality is very good and it's very comfortable to wear...the LED Lenser model I had was pretty uncomfortable compared to this...I would get a headaches after half an hour. Will be buying another one for the Misses. Very prompt service from Torch Direct.

Compact and bright

That was what I was after, a head torch with integrated battery so it is easier to put in a pocket as the nights draw in. I have several good head torches but they fall down on either weight/ separate battery pack or brightness. This is by far the ugliest unit but it is super bright and compact. The switch and light levels are easy to use even with gloves on and a single 1860 rechargeable makes it economical to run. Good value for such a powerful unit and usual great service from Torch Direct

Wife and I bought these for general caving around South Wales. We've now done a few trips with them and have been very impressed; for a small unit it kicks out a lot of light, and for a long time with the 3,400mAh rechargeable battery. The burst mode is ideal for looking at larger passages or formations and the medium level is fine for general caving. For info a spare battery fits neatly in a plastic 1oz medical specimen tube, of the type you'd give your doctor a urine sample in. My only small grumble is the screw-on battery cap, which feels "gritty" and as if it would be easy to cross thread when you're putting it on. But, this light is VASTLY better than my old Nova.

Hands Free Very Handy

I have several torches, but this is my first head torch, which has proved very useful, particularly when walking the dog. I'm looking forward to getting some hiking done this summer. A great Fenix product, also a first for me, and highly recommended. Torch direct service was first class, as always.

I'm finishing Dupont Corian in a site with unreliable power so I bought this head torch to work with while the power is out. It is genuinely brighter than the mains powered lighting in the bathroom. Tiny irregularities in surface colour or flatness that can't be seen under bathroom lighting can be seen very easily with this torch. At full power it's too bright for small rooms. It seems to be of good build quality so I'm confident that it will last, and if it does then it's great value. I went for an 18650 battery and I'm now going to have to buy a ARE C2 charger, I'll get a second battery while I'm at it. If you're going for CR123a batteries then Ansmann are a good brand and they do a 50 battery bulk box which looks to be decent value.
