To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love the Zipka range, but had to buy this model so I could use the Petzl core rechargeable battery pack. 3 brightness levels for the white beam - ranging from quite dim to surprisingly bright! Good spread of light, and consistent brightness shows why Petzl are better than the rest.
Very portable for travel no bulky head band Can mount on head wrist or other versitile 3 battery options aaa/aaa rechargeable/battery pack usb charge 3 power levels up to 300 , red and red flashing Massive improvement over previous model on/off Cons would like it to be more water resistant/shock resistant ie rubber/ silicon sleave maybe next upgrade
Fits happily in my “oh dear” drybag, and kicks out more than enough light to run in darkness. Being comfortable enough for occasional use and not adjustable (beyond plonking it on different parts of the forehead) it won’t be my main light, but to keep in reserve for torch failure or a run that finishes later than planned, it’s perfect. I’d argue anyone adventuring outside should take one :)
I just love Petzl! Their gear is superb. I was wanting to go on another Camino and wanted something more modern than my trusty other (Petzl) headlight which I have had for many years. Because of the newest LEDS that have come out this gives an output when needed of 350Lumens. Great bit of kit!
Still have my original Zipka working well. This latest iteration has far brighter option and ability to use Petzyl’s own rechargeable battery pack. As ever comfortable to wear and no bulky headband so eminently pocketable. Excellent value from quality manufacturer.
Brilliant piece of kit. Fits head, hat or helmet. surprisingly comfortable against your skin despite the thin cord. Really! When sleeping in the great outdoors it goes straight onto my wrist. The red bulb really useful too. I love it. Reliable rugged and compact, just the job
Love these torches. This was purchased to replace previous version that I accidentally damaged, and the improvement over the older version is amazing. The light is so much more powerful - to the extent that I now use this as my emergency torch in my backpack when out hiking.
I bought this to put in my camera bag when I’m out shooting in low light conditions or caught out because I’m out too late. I have been really impressed with this head torch, I bought it as a replacement for my old Zipka I bought in 2004, if you want quality for money, durability then I highly recommend this light.
