    Black Diamond Storm, worth the money. IMO best one out there. I'd recommend to anyone.

    if they are in the blue spectrum, like most led lights, you can expect a lot of bugs in your face. i am still trying to find a work around. if you are riding, as, an atv or in a moving boat, it might not be so bad, ya just gotta be moving, even a fast walk will help..
    when sitting still, ya need something along the yellow spectrum, with a touch of white.
    i bought some mini maglite's. the old stile. it makes a difference bug wise, not, bright wise, plus they werent head lamps.. i'm still looking for a headlamp, that dont attract bugs.
    a few years ago, least a decade, or so, i got a nylon strap, that holds a mini mag. the elastic wore out, that hold's the mini-mag flashlight. i'm gonna find it, an repair it, so i can use it.
    let me add, i dont see as well in the blue spectrum, at night. in the day it dont matter as much.
    i dont wear blue sunglasses, during the day. i have to wear yellow, to rose. just a thing. perhaps its a color-blind thing. brown is another color, i can tolerate.

    Camofire has some good headlamps, good price too. They usually put them up there about once a week or so. I got a Diamond something last year that has red and green lights which is great and all with only like 2 buttons, just don't wait till opening day to try to to start using it (lesson learned).

    I have a couple from Amazon with rechargeable battery pack on the back of your head. It distributes the weight of the 3 light system on the front. Extremely bright and can focus the beam. I use em for giggin mainly, I also have Energizer brand from Walmart on mechanic or tight space jobs
