    I'm in the market for a headlamp that is waterproof and no less than 500 lumens. It needs to run for at least 6 hours at a time and preferably rechargeable or at least cheaper batteries than the 123a batteries. Thanks alot.

    A friends has one of these, and he likes it a lot.
    Kinda pricey at $200.00, but it works great.
    He works as a "Critter Gitter" and when he has to crawl around under houses he doesn't want
    to deal with cheap headlamps that will let him down when he needs it the most.
