Thinkin on getting a headlamp to use this next season and i've been looking through the Cabelas catolog and see about 12 different ones that all seem alike :confused:
So what one is the brightest with the better field of view that comes with a green lense thats supposed to be invisible to animals? Does the green light really work?

Petzels and Blackdiamonds are very nice and realiable. Also for another alternative look into Princeton Tec.

Do yourself a favor and look at the rechargable model. Hint they problably aren't on Cabelas goto Petzels site, Campmor or Backcountry.

If you want the brightest, with the best field of view buy a K lites belt light or something similiar from any coonhunting supply store. i use mine to coonhunt and track deer down and you can buy green, amber, or blue lenses. The high side tops out at 750,000 candlepower while the low side can go from pretty dim to pretty bright and will go a lot of nights in the woods before it needs a recharge. People that are not around them dont realize how handy a coonlight is for finding downed game, especially the nice ones. Mine would run around $300 but you can get a Nite Sport or something similiar for around $70.

Thats more candle power than some spot lights!!!
Yeah finding down came after dark is a pain in the but unless you have good light.

I have one of the Petzels and I really like it but I still prefer to use a flashlight when walking in the dark woods. LED headlamps kind of give a glow where as flashlights have direct light. I don't see where having a light invisible in the woods is that much of an advantage. If a deer can see your light, he's close enough to see you, smell you and hear you.
