Lightweight and Rugged

The Fenix HL50 combines a compact and lightweight design with sturdy construction. Weighing in at 2 ounces and measuring just over 2.5 inches, it is compact enough to travel, hike or hunt. This headlamp is so light that it can be held in place with a single strap, no top strap required! Built with durable aluminum and stainless steel and coated with type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish, this light is ready for any abuse you can throw at it. An IPX-8 waterproof rating ensures that this light is ready for outdoor adventure in rain or shine.

Flexible Power Options

What the HL50 offers in dependability it matches in versatility. While primarily powered by a CR123A battery, the adjustable battery tube allows for the use of a AA cell. Having various options for power sources can be a lifesaver out in the wild! While the AA mode does have lower output, it can still put out a hefty 285 lumens. Using a CR123A, this headlamp can push a blinding 385 lumens in burst mode, sure to be enough to light your way through the dark.

Ready for the Great Outdoors

The HL50 headlamp is prepped for adventure with powerful output and straightforward features that make it ideal for outdoor use. Unique to this light is its temporary high-output burst mode, which can be accessed by holding down the power switch. This provides a burst of light to illuminate any particularly dark spots on demand. The headlamp can also be removed from the strap, and used as a regular flashlight, allowing for additional light positioning options not possible with other headlamps. With power and versatile design on its side, the HL50 is the perfect outdoor illumination tool.

Very Nice Headlamp
January 10, 2017
I like do a lot of night hiking, canyoneering, and even night time backcountry skiing. I've tried many different headlamps, but this one has impressed me most with its small size and good light output. There are brighter headlamps, but you really can't use more than 365 lumens at close range. I was also very pleased that it can accept a AA sized cell, since that is also what my GPS and avi beacon uses. Nice to keep weight down by only carrying one size of extra batteries.
ProsBoth AA and CR123 cell compatible, small and light weight yet with good light output.
ConsCaution, this headlamp can't handle the higher voltage of lithium ion cells! Not a big con, but something to be aware of.

Well made, small and light. The ability to use CR123 as well as common AA is a huge plus.

The Fenix HL50 Headlamp is ideal for my uses. I love that it easily rotates up/down, positions on forehead, Lt. / Rt. I like the ability to use either the recommended CR123 battery or with the supplied extension tube, use a single 'AA' battery. Versatility. It is light-weight, easy to wear, stays put and I like the (4) brightness mode levels to include the 'TURBO' mode that is good for about 5 minutes. The other three levels; 170, 60 and 4 Lumen all get used by me.
I many hand torches that I consider 'usable' either in terms of length of medium power on with high bursts or how far / bright a hand torch might be offering. The light might put out some 8,000 Lumen
but for only brief moments. There might not even be a 'switch' to turn it on / off. Just depress and hold for a momentary flood of light. Then there are others that require a shoulder harness to carry and they are the size of a soda can around. Then there are the 'new breed' coming out with accelerated technology that is getting 35 - 45 minutes in the 'blast zone.' That is quite impressive and to be commended especially in that these are easy EDC torches.
Bright and versatile
December 17, 2017
This is a very nice headlamp. I've had several, used mostly for backpacking and general chores in the dark, and this one is the best so far. It's bright, has a nice pattern (many have too narrow a beam for my uses), and runs economically from a single NiMH AA cell. You can also use a CR123 cell for a little less weight and slightly more light, but with no ability to recharge -- rechargeable CR123 cells, even LiFePO4, aren't allowed. I bought one, used it for a while, then liked it enough to get a second one.
ProsBright Economical - runs on NiMH AA Good pattern

A joy to use
November 10, 2017
I've used this light for hiking, camping, and more mundane tasks closer to home. It beats the 3AAA headlamps I used to use all to pieces. The neutral white and even beam pattern are a noticeable step up - more pleasant and easier on the eyes. It's simultaneously brighter and longer running and also both lighter and more durable.

I've not really used it with CR123s or used it as a handheld task light, but it's nice to know it has that flexibility.

I do wish it had a moonlight mode. Half a lumen or so would be great for many close tasks in camp or in a tent.
ProsBeautiful NW beam Good performance Versatile
ConsNo moonlight mode

Is there a lockout function on this light? Meaning, can you unscrew the tailcap a bit to prevent the light from turning on accidentally?
1 Answer
Unfortunately, there is not a lockout function on the HL50 headlamp. Press the button on the head to activate the HL50; press and hold the button on the head for 0.5 seconds to turn the light off.
