Rated 5 out of 5 by mpalx2 Petzl Tikka 2 Headlamp
purchased for a 14 day trek in Nepal -- headlamp worked great; was more than bright enough to adequately light up trail on early morning trekking in the Himalayas

Excellent product, very powerful. Use it for jogging in the early morning and it lights up the path very effectively. Wish I had bought it sooner!

It is getting dark earlier and I am not comfortable walking my dogs in the dark. This little gadget is the clear thing! It lights our way.

We now own several of these headlamps after having some quality issues with the LLBean version. They are easy to open for swapping out batteries and the battery life is good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kaultra not bright enough
I purchased the LLBean version of this headlamp years ago and love it. The new LLBean ones have changed and no longer have a screw to hold the battery in and reviews have complained about the plastic piece breaking when you change the battery. Needing a second headlamp I went ahead and purchased this one instead. I will say when we are both in the woods, me wearing my LLBean headlamp and him wearing this Petzl headlamp there is no comparison. This headlamp is not very bright when comparing the two together in the woods. It's too bad, this headlamp is otherwise constructed nicely.
Just went ahead and purchased another LLBean one and hoping the latch will hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoomerBeanShopper Excellent Quality of Light
It's liberating having my hands free at night for walking with my dogs, looking for slugs on the marigolds, or getting to some chores that didn't get done during the day.
Mostly I use the economy setting, which gives me plenty of broad light. It's nice to know the flasher is there if I should need it. There are times, however, when I pull it off my head and shine it around by hand especially on walks when I want to have more of an experience of darkness. With the light on my head I am always aware of a spot of bright light. The on/off button is easy to find and use.

I just bought three more headlamps because we use them all the time. They are very durable. I use mine when taking the dog out in the dark of early morning and late at night. Also when I want a bright light to read by, I strap it on my head and it provides the perfect amount of light. I also use mine when walking in the country at night. It's quite bright, and I can see where I'm going...a big plus when there is no ambient city light.

Wearing the Petzel Tikka 2 in dark places is like having a third hand, and the light is always shining in the direction you are looking. The pulsating light option alerts others you need help, and that in itself is incentive to have this head lamp.
I believe every household should have one of these when you lose electricity, want to read in bed, walking at night, or tying on a fly just as the trout begin to rise as darkness begins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aryadeva Crucial piece of camping equipment
There is nothing more useful in navigating a campsite at night than one of these small, lightweight headlamps. This one is very good; bright, but with a good econo setting. Not entirely sure what the strobe flash setting is for, unless one wants to have rave parties in the woods, but anyway it's a great piece of equipment. Recommended.

I was amazed at how comfortable this headlamp was. We bought them for our recent camping trip with our five year old daughter and they MADE the trip! She loved the experience. The unit works great, easy, and is comfortable.
