Verified Purchaser
Pros: Bright
Cons: Pointless
Other Comments: This product is an example of something trying to be more than one thing and doing none of them well. Very difficult to stuff all of the "headlight" bands battery pack and light back into the main body of the product. The tripod stand makes no sense at all, except that you can use it as a tripod for a camera. Once you cram all the stuff inside it makes a faily decent camping lantern.
