There are lots of things that make the Fenix HL18R-T one of the best trail running headlamps out there. It has a patented headband adjustment system that lets you adjust the fit simply by clicking and twisting a nozel with one hand: super useful on-the-go, when you don't want to be taking it off to make it tighter or looser while you're running.

The rechargeable battery pack can be recharged via a micro USB port. If you've gone on a trip and forgotten your cable, don't worry, because you can use normal AAA batteries if you need.

The housing for the light itself is lightweight, so it doesn't droop down onto your forehead when you're running or covering rough terrain.
