For close work as an artist, modeler or craftsman, magnified inspection of a surface or small area is frequently critical. Hand-held glasses are awkward because they leave you with only one free hand. A hands-free, headband-mounted magnifier is usually the preferred solution, but there are a intimidating number to choose from. Out of the dozens of designs available, we recommend this as one of the very best.

First, the headband is comfortable to wear for extended periods (most are too stiff to fit well). Second, there are focused lights on both sides of the headband (4 AAA batteries - not included). Third, there are three sets of fitted lenses: two are double lenses - one is fixed, and the other folds up and down before your eyes on an interior hinge - and the third lens is an outside rotating single eye loupe. The combinations of magnification (using the three) ranges from 1.8X to 4.8X, depending on which lenses you select. Taiwan.

Lousy Product
Reviewed By:   (Oro Valley, AZ) 
Picture looked like just what I was after, the side lights were a real plus. I would say the workmanship was just okay, but not what I expected from Garret Wade. The right headlight would not operate, the bulb/battery assembly was cheesy. Sent it back. Too bad.

I bought this gift for my son. He is thrilled with this item. He will be using it to tie flies for fishing! I would recommend this as a gift for the fisherman in your life!

Great Magnifier!
Reviewed By:   (Avon, CT) 
I've been looking for a headband magnifier for a while. This one caught my eye, and I have not been disappointed. The image is clear; the fit is very comfortable; and I like being able to select just the right amount of magnification for the job. I don't use the battery-powered lights since my workshop has plenty of good light. The quality of the magnifier is excellent, and the cost is very reasonable making it an excellent value!

Great idea, could be made better
Reviewed By:   (Santa Clara, CA) 
I use the hand-band magnifier very frequently and I find it to be one of the most useful tools that I have. I found that lights on the side were not always staying on. The batteries were loose. I used a small screwdriver to spread the battery retention spring out a bit and now that the batteries are snug, it works like a charm.

Mag Headlight

Cheap with lousy velcro strap, I opened the box and the light switch had already fallen off. I ordered two and both were the same. I'll send them back.
