The Petzl Headlamp: Illuminating People’s Adventures
The Petzl headlamp is indeed a very useful bit of kit. Having your hands free and a torch mounted on your head is certainly a superior way to go, especially when burdened down with backpacks and god-knows what else.
In my view the Petzl headlamp is the market leader, with outstanding build quality and performance. For a long time I used the basic Petzl Zoom. This model was ideal for hiking and outdoors activities but was a bit on the bulky side for lightweight travel.
Petzl produce a range of headlamps ideal for travel; compact, lightweight yet pack a lot of illuminating punch. Well thought through design, utilising the latest in LED technology and exceptional battery performance make for dependable travel companions.
The Tikka and Zipka range fit the bill for robust yet compact headlamps, ideally suited for adventuring.
With four LED’s and three lighting modes, at its most efficient can produce up to 120 hours of lighting time; ensuring you’ll always find your hotel in the back streets of McLeod Ganj.
Featuring one, white high-output LED and one red LED, the Tikka Plus packs punch. Producing 50 lumens at maximum output, allowing for effective lighting up to 35m, this Petzl headlamp is incredibly powerful and compact.
The Tikka Core is equipped with four LED’s and three lighting modes. Teamed up with Petzl’s rechargeable Core battery system, it’s a highly efficient and effective headlamp ideally suited to travel.
Petzl’s Tikka XP is their most powerful compact headlamp. With the ability produce 60 lumens and gives effective lighting up to 60m at maximum output, it really is a powerful little light.
The ingeniously designed Zipka Petzl headlamp features a retractable cord system, allowing you to wear it on your head or attach it to equipment. When not in use the cord retracts keeping the headlamp extremely compact.
Again featuring Petzl’s retractable cord system, the Zipka Plus gives effective lighting up to 60m and produces 50 lumens at maximum output. Brilliantly compact, it will help keep your backpack weight down.
So there’s a list of travel worthy headlamps. Reliable and robust with great performance, the Petzl headlamp is a piece of kit you can rely on.
