I usually get that type stuff at sierra trading Post and use their email coupons. Can't have enough headlamps with kids around.

I am pretty happy with my Petzl. 10 years at least and still going strong. I broke my wifes and tried to order parts - the guy sent them for free and wouldn't bill me. I told him it was my fault and in no way a failure of the headlamp. He still sent it. It's the little one with three AAs. Actually my really old one still works too but it is all stretched out. My daughters were like a neck light.

I just bought the Black Diamond ReVolt and love it. I am slowly transitioning most of my outdoor electronics to USB rechargeables. I hate buying batteries and their waste.

Outdoor Gearlab has an overall review of headlamps:

I own a set of the '3 for $15' Home Depot Defiant Brand headlamps and find them to be very good value for the price.

While not mentioned on the package or website, they do have four light 'modes' 1. bright white 2. red 3. green 4. flashing red

They do not have a gasketed light or battery case, however a light dunking in fresh water or rain doesn't seem to bother them.

They are made of less durable plastic than my Petzle. It is possible to chip and or break them.

As far as durability, in a 10 year time frame I am much more likely to 'loose, lend or drop into the river' any headlamp I own.

I can buy 10 of the cheap ones for the price of the ones metioned above, which means I can afford to keep one with the kitchen box, the captians box, one in my tent, one in the car etc.
