This multi-tool of a headlamp isn't restricted to just one or two tricks. Many regular flashlights leave a lot to be desired if worn on the head while headlamps in the hand are cumbersome at best. This is a special all-black version made for Finnish users!

Don't worry, we'll ship these internationally as well.

Wear the HM61R on your head to point your light where you look. In case of rain or snowfall, move it to your chest. Why, you ask? For the same reason fog lights are mounted low on cars. Speaking of cars, you might need a work light elsewhere than on your person. A magnetic tailcap is your friend in these cases.

While the mounts are military-compatible, just the chest pocket of your jacket or shirt will do when you want to clip the light onto yourself. And when the headlamp is in your bag, it won't turn on by itself thanks to an electronic lock system.

Simple guide to operation

The power button has some tricks to it, but once you get them it's all consistent and logical:

  • A double-tap on the button engages or disengages the lock.
  • Turning the light on or off requires a deliberate press. (Longer than a tap, but not exactly a yawn-inducing "press and hold forever".)
  • When on, tapping on the power button cycles through various brightness settings and flashing mode (if applicable) within your selected colour.
  • A press-and-hold changes from red to white or back.

A memory circuit recalls the previous brightness setting but the light always turns on in white light mode.

I would recommend for a friend

21.05.2020 (Edited 24.06.2020)
I bought this headlamp as I wanted headlamp that has decent white light output modes, while using a quality rechargeable battery and most importantly having a red light function.

There are a hundreds of good headlamps out there, but when one wants removable batteries the options are reduced to dozens and when ones adds the necessary condition of having the very useful red-light function then one has practically no options. So coming across this Fenix was a pleasant surprise.

I can compare this headlamp to my now discontinued Olight H2R which has a very similar form factor, uses 18650s and a very similar headband.

The Olight on the whole seems to have better construction than the Fenix, the threads are much smoother, but when it comes to exterior finish it is quite close.

The Olight has a more versatile headband, the Fenix is close to full extension on my medium sized head, while the Olight has a lot more room for loosening and tightening the headband. One could potentially use certain helmets with the Olight headband at full extension while this not a possibility at all with the Fenix. The Fenix headband does have some rubberized areas so it is able to hold it's place better than the regular elastic Olight headband.

The Olight has a much better reversible clip that provides one with a plethora of mounting options compared to the Fenix's thinner and one way clip. That being said, the Fenix mounts onto the headband with the clip, while the olight needs to have the clip removed in order to be mounted in the headband and carrying this extra clip loose for added function is not practical.

The Olight has a better way of cycling through the modes. It is more intuitive. However, the Olight lacks the red light functions which adds complexity to the Fenix so the comparison isn't completely fair here. The only thing I wish was had here is if the Fenix headlamp had memory of whether one last used the red or white light, as the Fenix only remembers the last white light function. So one must go through the white light functions to return to the red light after powering off the light, although this can be done relatively quickly.

The Fenix most importantly has a red light function, this alone makes it much more usable than the Olight. I can overlook all the small advantages the Olight has over the Fenix just for red-light functionality. If one does not want to impair their night vision red light functionality is a must in constant headlamp use at night. It further helps that the Fenix has High/Low red-light modes as opposed to many headlamps that might have only one red-light mode.
