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.
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
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.
