is the head strap over the head can remove to use only the head band?
JEREMY B Not sure I bought it as a gift for someone, Sorry.
DOUGLAS S Yes the head strap can be removed however it stays on your head much better with it.
KERRY K Hello Bernard,
Yes, the top strap can be removed and re-attached as needed. I've been very happy with this headlamp. Hope this helps.
JOHN W Yes it is removable, but the battery pack is heavy and so the strap is needed. I do hike but also walk my dogs nightly and this is a great item.
MICHAEL O Yes, it actually comes separate.
DAVID K Yes, the head strap removed so you can use the "hatband" strap. However, with three AA batteries there is some weight that the strap needs to hold up. I've never tried it with the top strap removed. By the way, I just replaced the batteries for the first time. I've probably camped out with this at least 20 nights and I use it around the house. That's great battery life. It is a very powerful light.
