I pride myself on being a mom that tries to do it all: handyman, organizer, runner, etc. One thing I've noticed from wearing all of those hats is that sometimes, you just don't have enough light to do your job well. For instance, I don't know how many times I've found myself tending to a leak under the kitchen sink or fixing a bookcase in the corner of a room and needed someone to hold a flashlight for me so that I could see what I was doing.
I've also frequently needed a bright light for when I'm busy organizing the garage, attic or random closet of my home. Even on nights when I decide to go for a late run, it would help tremendously to have an adequate hands-free light source. ICON creates high-quality flashlights and headlamps and was generous enough to allow me to review their Irix II Headlamp. Keep reading to learn more about the newest light of my life!
The ICON Irix II Headlamp provides an impressive amount of lighting in a hands-free device. This headlamp includes high-efficiency LEDs with a wide, powerful, user-friendly beam and is fully adjustable from zero to 50 lumens. I found the headband to be very comfortable and I thought that, for a headlamp, the design was pretty attractive. The durable polymer housing provides a rugged and good looking design that is meant to last.
The ICON Irix II fit my head well for most any everyday type of task, but when it came to using it for a nightly jog, I found that it stayed on my head better if I wore it over a baseball cap. The constant jiggling caused the headlamp to slide, which I expected, but the brim of the baseball cap held it in place perfectly.
