    Perhaps they're 3M Diamond Grade in the DG3 variant, which I hear is optimized for closer ranges. But a headlamp, meaning a light mounted on your head, will show reflection more strongly than a bar light (or a driver's auto headlights) because your headlamp is so close to your eyes.

    That's why I rely mainly on my helmet light to spot deer on fast rural descents. Deer eyes are reflective, and the helmet light will show them much better than a bar light because the observation angle (angle between light source and my eyes) is very small. Trying to spot a brown deer in the dark by any other characteristic is difficult, them being a dull brown color on a black background.
