I received my Nathan Halo Fire as a direct replacement from my personally bought Nathan Nebula Fire. The outgoing headlamp stopped charging through the USB charger and was effectively useless if it cannot charge. I reached out to Nathan’s Facebook page and they were quick to ship me the replacement (which became the very Halo Fire that I have been using even to this very day) upon proof of original purchase of my defective headlamp. I am pleasantly surprised by their willingness to stand behind the products that they sell and doing the right things to delight purchasers like me. However, I have since been quite wary of all electronic devices that require USB charging – including this replacement piece.
The Halo Fire shines brightly when it matters most – the outdoors. I appreciate the Auto-Strobe function when nights are dark and evening commute traffic are at high volumes. It comes in handy especially when running where one side of the street is strictly residential grounds whereas the other side of the streets are untampered (yet) farm lands and corn fields. In terms of durability, it has endured quite well on Canadian winters, from the frigid minus twenty somethings temperatures to those balmy evenings at the peak of summer. It can take on light moisture with its IPX4 water resistant rating. That being said, I do not recommend tackling those torrential downpour weather though.
In conclusion, the Nathan Halo Fire is well worth your return on investment if you do serious amounts of running in the nighttime or simply being a nocturnal adventure thrillseeker.
