The 400 lumens is not hype! It throws a lot of light on highest setting. 2nd setting only slightly dimmer. 3rd setting is about half and still quite good. I suppose Coast got feedback on their switches being too easily activated because this light switch has to have a firm centered press to activate. Less likely to turn on accidentally in a gear bag. The lamp assembly swivels with a click and stays in place where you put it.
My only gripe is that the band is too wide. Tends to slip upwards on the head in use. Its best suited to use with a cap. Band to cap clips are included but I haven't tried them yet.
