FL75R

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

The Pure Beam Fo­cus­ing Op­tic on this head­lamp casts a large and even cir­cle of soft white light, which we found to be very use­ful in a dark camp­site. Twist­ing the bezel fo­cuses the cen­ter of the light into a spot beam for longer throw, but re­tains the pe­riph­eral flood for sit­u­a­tional aware­ness. The FL75R’s re­mov­able li-ion bat­tery is recharge­able via a mi­cro-USB port, and avail­able in var­i­ous bright col­or­ways as well as this sub­dued FDE op­tion.

PROS:

Twist-fo­cus op­tic pro­duces an ex­tremely wide flood beam with or with­out a cen­tral spot In­cludes AAA bat­ter­ies and a recharge­able pack, plus a ca­ble and wall charger

CONS:

Red LEDs cast a tight spot beam; flood would’ve been more use­ful We nor­mally don’t care about pack­ag­ing, but this ar­rived in a com­i­cally huge 9-by-15-inch plas­tic clamshell. The box was mostly empty space.
