    Headlight, Light

    The wife has put in a request for a light that straps to her head. She wants something that she doesn't have to hold. I've looked around and can't find anything....any recommendations?

    OMS used to make one. Underwater Kinetics makes the Vizion.

    3AAA Vizion

    The OMS one looked nice but I don't think they have made it for quite some time now. Might find one in the channel somewhere.

    Might look into a small canister light with goodman handle. Light monkey and dive rite as well as others. About a $500 investment. Haave you used a goodan handle before? with a good fit you don't have to hold onto the light, it just hangs on your hand.

    I have a small light with a rubber strap that can be attached to the mask strap. it does not mut out much light though. You can also find small led lights that have velcro straps that could be attached to a mask strap.

    The issue I've seen is that although some are listed in Scuba Diving Shops, they say "waterproof" for all kinds of weather and in reading some reviews....they are not for under water environments.

    I might have to look closer at the goodman handles.

    Here is a link to what I have. It comes with a mask strap and is very bright. One thing to tell your wife if she's wearing it on her mask is not to look at anyone's face. She could blind them. I keep the light clipped to my BC in a way thet I can use it without unclipping. You could also make a wrist strap to attach the mask strap to - hands free but still directable. Best thing is that it's only $23 and uses AA batteries instead of the expensive buttons.

    You could probably get by with a backup light and some snorkel straps and mount it to the mask strap. I used to have a mini-maglight headband. That was helpful until the forehead lights came about.

    Attaching a light to a mask or mask strap is not such a good idea. Most likely would cause drag and the mask to leak and in some cases could be an entanglement hazard.

    One of the best options for a recreational diver is the soft goodman "light sock" style that could be used with many available small lights.

    I read that OMS was bringing out an LED version of their head lamp. The link to the one on ST doesn't show that it's LED HERE (and it's not available right now) but this one does: http://www.primescuba.com/oms-ultra-...head-lamp.html

    I don't know anyone that has one and OMS doesn't list anything on their site about it, but it might be worth checking into if that's what she wants.
