Fantastic product and the best price on the internet…
I used a £30 Petzl headtorch for the last 5 years on commercial window cleaning jobs out of hours. Good little torch but just not bright enough. Did some research and came across the Fenix HM65R. All the reviews and videos I watched point towards this torch being the one I need.
Firstly the Torch arrived promptly from Hill And Dale and their customer service team were helpful and friendly when I needed to contact them when I was ordering.
The torch itself is top quality and the build quality feels really solid. I've used it a couple of times on jobs and can easily see to the top of buildings from the ground. Havent ran it on full power yet permanently to see how long it lasts but its lasted long enough for our jobs. When the battery is running low it knocks it down a power setting and keeps going.
The red beam is handy and on setting 4 its really powerful.
I pulled over the other night on the way home in the middle of nowhere to test it on full power and was easily seeing 150 to 200 yards away.
Headband is really comfortable but is a little footery to adjust for someone like me who has little patience, so my wife did it.
Overall I would give it top marks and highly recommend the torch and Hill and Dale.
Thank you 10/10
A good example of ‘you get what you pay for’. I needed a headlamp that a bit more reach than my £15 Petzl one had. I bought the Fenix Shadow Master because of its specifications and because it had good reviews. Hill and Dale were selling it £10 cheaper than everyone else, so I took the plunge. And I’m very glad I did. On the highest white light setting this thing is like having a bi-xenon car headlamp on your head. On the lowest, it’s ideal for any work or moving around you care to name. The red light is also useful for sneaking about when white light would compromise your purpose. Enough to see and signal by, but doesn’t spook critters. It feels really sturdy and looks like it will last a long time. The battery life is reputed to be excellent. I haven’t had it long enough to say one way or another. But I’ve only charged it once so far. If you have the cash for a headlamp in this price range, I don’t think you can go wrong with this one.
