I purchased one of these before I went to OIF in 2003, and it was the best $40 I ever spent! This headlamp has a very forgiving, adjustable elastic band (large enough to fit around a helmet), an adjustable LED light source that lasts forever on AAA batteries, and (for a small additional fee) a kit that comes with additional lenses (red, blue, and clear). This thing was great for reading maps, writing letters home, taking notes at the BUB, and just walking around the AO at night. And when you get home, you can use it for camping or other nighttime activities. I wouldn't deploy without it!
