Fenix HM65R ShadowMaster 1200 Lumens Rechargeable Headtorch

HM65R ShadowMaster headlamp has been developed jointly with Fenix as an elite Fishing Headlamp, Hunting Headlamp and Military Headlamp. It features a powerful main beam boosted from 1000 to 1200 lumens, a 150 lumen red floodlight, upgraded non dimming power electronics and stealth black headbands. The lowest red light setting of 5 lumens is particularly useful for protecting dark adapted eyes and is less likely to spook wildlife than white light.

Our ShadowMaster headlamp utilizes a magnesium alloy body for ultra light weight and excellent heat dissipation. It features a focus free perfectly balanced main beam with 5 brightness settings that reaches out up to168 meters whilst also generating a wide area flood light to safely light your surroundings. A powerful red flood light offers 4 brightness settings from 5 to 150 lumens giving the choice of night vision protection / stealthy operation or red flood lighting out to a useful 30 meters.

The included Fenix ARB-L18-3500 mAh 18650 rechargeable battery delivers maximum run times whatever lighting mode is in use. The battery is easy to swap for a spare simply by unscrewing the battery cap, keeping your adventure going indefinitely! The battery is charged on board via the supplied USB-C type cable and your choice of mains or outdoor charger, whilst a 4 LED battery meter between the individual beam switches indicates charging status and remaining charge.

Worries about durability ? No concerns here. Fenix HM65R ShadowMaster is rated 2M drop resistant, dust proof and waterproof to 2 meters for 30 minutes. HM65R has proven ultra reliable in the toughest situations.

Brilliant headtorch

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 great headlamp

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.
