Pros. Even with the flaws described below this is an very good headlight. It is so good that from time to time I look at mine and think "I sure hope they keep making them." I don't know of any other headlamp that compares. VERY bright light on high. Excellent light pattern. Can use for close work, or to see longer range. Wonderful that they use 3 AA batteries instead of 3 AAA batteries like most other headlamps (batteries last probably 3 times longer than AAAs, even when powering this much brighter LED light, and AA batteries cost the same as AAA). Well balanced with the light in front and batteries behind your head. Great headband (when new, see Cons below). Well made, except for the flaws in the cons below. Ray-O-Vac honors its lifetime warranty. Cons. Here's hoping Ray-O-Vac product development guys see this along with everyone else. The latches on the battery compartment door are weak. They break in time even when you take care to not break them. And if you drop the headlamp they can break in an instant. I sent some in on the lifetime warranty and Ray-O-Vac sent me new ones. When the same thing happened with the replacements I figured out a velcro repair which has worked out great. Better however would be for Ray-O-Vac to beef up the battery door latches so they can be used as designed with no repairs needed. After a year or so of much use the elastic in the headband fails (gets longer until no more stretch). I am looking for better elastic to make my own that will last longer, but if I can't find it, I will send them back to get new headbands on the lifetime warranty. Maybe Ray-O-Vac can find elastic with a better elastomer (EPDM?)? One side of the battery compartment needs to be a few thousandths of an inch bigger. My rechargeable batteries have to be rotated to just the right spot or they don't fit in the battery compartment on one side. Every one of five headlamps has had this same problem. You can work around it, but why have to? I bought my first lights at Costco. They didn't have the following problem. Only the replacement lights have it. They turn on in your pocket. I am pretty sure it is caused by static electricity and not physically pushing the on switch. If you don't notice they are on, dead batteries when you need them. I used to solve this by opening the battery compartment door when in my pocket, so no power. But the one flaw with my velco battery door repair is I need light to see to fasten the velcro, so I can't cut off the power now (just have to keep an eye on them when in my pocket). Overall, despite the flaws, very good headlamps. And if these flaws were fixed, I think they would be the very best headlamps on the market. Shouldn't be hard to fix these problems if anyone is listening at Ray-O-Vac!

Very Bright

This is a great flashlight. The battery life stated is optimistic is is about half that time before it dims drastically.

Terrific flashlight

By Ricky

from Lubbock, TX, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

it is much easier to handle and carry than a maglight and has much greater range and magnitude. I bought it;and, this is my second one, to use, not only around the house, but on the farm and for security. it is easy to handle in tight spots such as crawling in a small confined area or under a house or inside a cave. Also, I use it during cold weather and never have a problem with the light feeling cold to the touch or. Being an led it simply lasts forever!!

Like a Coleman Lantern but Quiet

By DarkNess

from Dallas

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

With frequent power outages in my area of Dallas, this lantern has changed my life. In the dark for days at a time, with only candles and a small flashlight, this fine lantern puts out light as bright as a Coleman but without the noise.

Very good headlamp

By Allen500

from Grand Rapids, MI, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

First headlamp I have used. I run on asphalt paths near the road and this headlamp is so bright that I am not bothered by the oncoming car headlights. I like that the batteries are in the back - less weight on the front of my head.

Great emergency lantern

By MPruett

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

This is a great emergency lantern. We've used ours in a couple of power-outages that otherwise would have left us in darkness. It's bright for a battery powered lantern, but in reality is about like a standard 30 watt bulb. This is clearly pretty good considering it runs something like 40 hours on high and 90 on low on D batteries, and it's a godsend when you have no other source of room lighting.

Great value

By Lllll

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

The free batteries made this a great value. After much research, Bright light and good battery life put this ahead of competitors. Bought one lantern local as a gift, looked online and found this pkg for same price making batteries free. Minor inconvenience, batteries and lantern shipped separate, tracking was not up to par.

Product Is unbeatable

By jburnell

from Wichita Kansas

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

This flashlight is hard to find. I bought my first one a few years ago. Then I bought another one for my other car. The light is intense on the ground in front of you or a quarter of a block away with a wonderful smooth spot to distinguish detail in front of you. It is not a skewed like most other flashlights. The only problem with them is that the batteries last so long in them that one battery leaked and froze to the casing. I could not find them at any store for a replacement, so I ordered three more of them on line because when I needed a flash light I would find that I would go to garage and get the Rayovac LED 4 watt from the car instead of one of the four MAG lights in the house. This time I ordered Three of them. If you ever need a trauma nurse on a helicopter in this part of the country and he shows up using one of these LED 4 watt three C cell flash lights, That is my son. I gave him one for his birthday It is lighter and still lasts longer than a normal three D cell. Just be sure to check the batteries every year because of the long battery life that you get from one or these truly ultra modern flash lights

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

I found this lamp while camping in CT. I think it is great. Backpack camping might noe be its best use, it is heavy, but it is heavy-duty. The battery cahnge issues people have complained about are non-issues. The lower cover removes easily. The upper cover also removes easily. I like it a lot and i like the battery life. It is surely bright enough to read with and a perfect emergency light

Very bright lantern

By Darrin317

from Cleveland, OH, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

I have used my lanterns on several occasions. Unfortunately my neighborhood suffers power outages at least 6 times a year. I can use these lanterns to shower & shave because they illuminate any room. Also, my neighbors have often borrowed my 2nd lantern because they can see the brightness from the street.

Like their batteries, Rayovac products are reliable and reasonably priced. Because I was pleased with prior lantern purchases, I purchased these smaller ones for my grandchildren to use in electrical outages. Also, they will be useful for the two that camp.

Lots of light from small lantern!

By Rik52

from Union, CT, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

At first I did not like the blinking LED you can't turn off, but it draws almost no power from the batteries, and does make it easy to find in the dark. Now I just appreciate how bright this is on only 3 AA cells, and store it without batteries installed. No need to remove them during long power outages. I can always use a flashlight to install the batteries when I need them if its dark when we loose power. Plenty of light to get around a large room, or read close to the lantern, AND long battery life, Can't beat it!

Lights up a room pretty well!

By Rik52

from Union, CT, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

Seems as bright as a small wall powered table lamp, but much easier to light up a whole room from the center, or hung upside down overhead. The flashing LED pilot light can't be turned off, but seems to draw almost nothing from the batteries. I store it with batteries next to it, not a bad idea anyway. If we loose power at night I will need a flashlight to install the 3 D cells, and then it will be easy to find when shut off. Long battery life is great for long power outages we have here every couple years. Plenty of light to cook and eat by.

Great product to have around your house for emergency

By DJFan88

from La Grange, California

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

We have had two of these headlights for about four years and they come in great for camping and for us we live up in the foothills of California and going out at night it make it so nice to have your hands free and be able to see wild animals at a distance because their eyes glow from the light. I'm so glad to be able to get two more as it had ben so long since we got our first two and now we have four where we can have two in the RV and not have to take the two from home when we travel. Great and dependable product. All you have to do is change the three double A batteries and you have a new light. Batteries do last a long time also. Will be getting two more for camping friends for presents.

The ones that work are great

By JonH

from Grand Rapids, MN 55744, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

I recently purchased 8 of these for my workgroup. I received them promptly and distributed them out. 3 of the 8 were faulty right out of the packaging. When we opened up the package and put the batteries in, the main light came on immediately when the battery door was closed. the switches in these units did nothing to effect the lights. I called the customer service number and they did mail me a shipping label to return the bad units. I sent them back and they were received at their shop yesterday, so I will see what they do to make it right. The units that work are good headlamps. The flashing red beacon on the back is particularly good for visibility to heavy equipment at night, and I bought these specifically for their ability to use AA batteries like all of my other equipment.

Should not advertise the "water resisitant"

By Mwwilliams

from Knoxville, TN, USA

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

Everyone knows rubber is water resistant but it does not keep water out for sure. The bottom was in water for a while and water poured in, shorting out the batteries and both bulbs. Night light still works but now not sure if it will work if I replace the bulbs. I doubt it actually. When working it was awesome. Just drop any hint that it is water anything.

Durable/Bright

By Gilkenheimer

from Oregon

Comments about Rayovac® Sportman Extreme Headlight (SE3AAHDLT-BX):

For a pipe layer / road construction worker this light is simply fantastic. I work outdoors year round in all weather and temperatures. As a pipe layer, I honestly did not expect this light to survive more than 8 months. The majority of my previous "high-end" head lamps (Petzel, Streamlight) did not make it past a year before I destroyed them; that statement ought to give the average user an idea as to how abusive my work environment is. All that said, here is the rundown... It stands up well to mud, concrete, abrasives, rain (and the kitchen faucet/garden hose for cleaning), ice and dust. Good light output for the $$ spent. It has a good 100 yard throw, so boating in pitch black is no problem, however the beam is quite narrow and focused. The battery door is sealed against rain, as is everything else about this light, however the space tolerance for the batteries is too tight; Make sure the batteries are wiped clean and dry before inserting them. Also, the battery life is limited; I notice a significant drop in lumen output after 7 hours when using alkaline batteries so this mean i change them every work day. Hope these thoughts are helpful.
