Unboxing: Fenix HL22 Headlamp

Headlamp Suitable for Night Running

Things to consider before buying any type of lights for active night activities:

  • Lumens
     measure of the total "amount" of visible light emitted by a source. More lumens means more bright.
  • Modes
    How many functional output available? The brighter the mode, the more battery power usage which measures lamp runtime.
  • Waterproof
    Refer to how the item relatively unaffected by water or resisting the ingress of water under specified conditions such as wet environments.
  • Size and Weight
    For best user experience during activity.

Product Info

My Review

Bought myself the Fenix HL22 Headlamp at RM100 for my trail run usage. There is a shop located near Gombak which offers a wide range of Fenix products. The size is very comfortable for handheld and also when placing it on your forehead. The headstrap is also adjustable. 

Check out the actual output during my last run. Note that I was using the medium mode at 45 lumens only. It was pitch black in the jungle track. Ignore the iPhone5 video quality.

Item Recommendation: ★★★★ (5/5)
