Editorial Review

As the evening descends on your 10-mile hike, which took just a bit longer than you anticipated because of the detour around the black bear, aren't you glad you brought the Tikka headlamp to light your trail the rest of the way? Among the most compact and lightweight headlamps in Petzl's catalog, the Tikka is not only terrific for hiking but also for close-in detail work, such as whittling carefully crafted marshmallow sticks at the campfire. The Tikka features a 150-hour burn time, gives off a very white light, and comes with an adjustable elastic strap that fits any size head or helmet. Backpackers, mountaineers, and spelunkers should all buy one. ... Read more

  • Delivers 150 hours continuous light
  • Perfect for camping, hiking, home projects--any time you need extra light
  • Comfortable adjustable strap with cushion forehead pad
  • Fits in the palm of your hand
  • Extremely lightweight--weighs only 2.5 ounces

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but better than most
Petzl's Tikka series lamps are hard to beat for function, price, and practicality.Sure, there are lighter weight LED-type lights out there that use watch batteries, but standard AAA batteries are much easier to come by when you're camping/trekking in out of the way places than a specific type of watch battery.The burn time is phenomenal, compared to conventional incandescent lamps, and the Zipka lamp is a very ingenious little headlamp, with its retracting strap and tiny size.They both put out a good field of usable light, and it stays bright for most of the battery life (usually 100-150 hours).As for the criticism that the Tikka line does not have a multiple intensity or flashing setting, or an adjustable angle, Petzl has introduced "Tikka Plus" and "Zipka Plus" lines which offer all of those features, though at a slightly higher price, with slightly more weight and a little bit shorter burn times.They've improved the switch too, for the plus models to allow for the multiple function settings, eliminating the original less-than-perfect slide switch, and the possibility of the lamp turning itself on by mistake.I own several lights in this series, the Tikka, the Zipka, and recently, a Zipka Plus, and I use them constantly whether bicycling, reading in my tent, hiking down a trail at night, or running tv cable in my crawlspace and have nothing but praise for each light.

5-0 out of 5 stars great/useful light
I recently bought this light and it has been a very pleasant experience. I use it for reading late at nite and for working/fixing things around the house (it is 20 times easier to get light in the place you want it with this rather than with your wife trying to point the light at what you need it pointed at).Overall a good product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Junky switch + Great light = One Heck of a Problem
It's true (as many before me have said) that the switch is pure hell.Flickering everytime I turn it on.Sometimes the light seems very dim until I mess with the switch and realize it's just not 'contacting' well.

The problem is I LOVE the light.I'm too stupid and cheap to throw it away.So I continue on and suffer every night (since I usually use it as a reading light).

Go ahead and buy it.It's nice.It's blue and the light it great.But you've been warned about that darn switch... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect headlamp
coolest strap system I've seen.fits easily in your pocket.

at first I didn't think the angle was adjustable - but you effectively can by moving it up and down on your forehead.

also - it can sit flat on the floor / ground with the light at a 45 degree angle.useful for a small area light.

the light is bright and highly defused.favors lighting up a large area close to you as opposed to spotting at a distance.

previously owned a princeton aurora - which was good, but I like this one a lot better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have item.
This thing is so small and light you can have one with you for any outdoor activity where you could get caught in the dark if things don't go perfectly.

It works on your bare head, though not as well as one with straps, but it also works over helmets and hats, and it fits in any pocket.

4-0 out of 5 stars Neat gadget...glad I didn't pay for it
I got this headlamp as a birthday present and it's really quite nice for doing fine detail work where I need extra light.However, sometimes the 4 lights show up as 4 bright spots on the work if the work surface is shiny.It would be nice if the face was a diffuser instead of a clear plastic for my use.However, looking at the price, I would never have bought it for myself.It makes a great gift for someone who needs to do close up work like model building, etc. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best compromise between light, weight, and comfort
I admit it, I'm an LED light junky. I have LED lights by Black Diamond, PrinctonTec, etc., as well as the original Petzl Tikka. The Tikka Plus is not the best value out there, and not even the lightest for its brightness (that goes to its sibling, the ZipkaPlus). But it's the one that, now that I've upgraded from my original Tikka, almost always ends up in my backpack.

Why is that? Well:

1. Light weight. Mere ounces.
2. No bulky box or overstrap that makes it hard to wear a hood or hat with the lamp. Makes it more useful in rain.
3. A quite impressive flood of light for such a small lamp. I do suggest carrying a flashlight with a brighter more focused beam for when you're trying to do pathfinding at night, but if you're keeping to well-defined trails, you'll have no problem with the Tikka's amount of light.
4. Very comfortable to wear on your head. In fact, maybe too comfortable. I remember one time I set out from camp while it was still dark. About 30 minutes later, I no longer needed my lamp, so turned it off, but left it on my head in case the next dip into shadow was too dark. About an hour later, I was puffing up a long incline, reached up to wipe the sweat off my forehead, and ended up sending my Tikka flying -- I had forgotten it was up there.

I had the original Tikka and it was one of my favorites too, but had a few things I didn't like -- the inability to swivel the beam up and down, only barely enough light to hike in the dark, and a rather flimsy and klunky switch. The Tikka Plus fixes all of those issues by adding one more LED, adding a swivel, and adding a better switch. Oh sure, my Princeton Tech Yukon XL makes more light, its batteries last longer, and it is a technological marvel with its combination of traditional LED's and the new 1-watt LED. It also weighs twice as much, its big AA battery box that sits on the back of the head is very clumsy to wear with a hood or hat (as I might want to wear if it's raining), and I can't hike twice as well at night with it.

Weaknesses? Well, the battery compartment is difficult to get open, and it's hard to get the batteries in and the compartment closed again. And of course it has no focused beam of light for looking at stuff further than 20 feet or so, and the battery life isn't as long as on headlamps with fewer LED's or more batteries. Other than that...

So yes, the Petzl isn't the brightest, and isn't the longest lasting, and isn't even the lightest. But it hits a real sweet spot point that makes it my favorite headlamp despite all that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful when you need hands-free light.
I'm not much of a camper, but I know that a good hands-free light source is important when doing the outdoor thing.So when I was planning that aspect of my '04 Sturgis motorcycle trip, I did some research along those lines.I read a number of positive reviews for the Petzls on Amazon.com, and decided that one of those would do.However, I wanted to make sure by doing some hands-on research, so I went off to my local outdoors shop for that purpose.

I was going to buy the Petzl with the retractable string headband, since it was the most compact.But after trying it on, I was afraid the thin string would break at the worst possible moment, and I'd be sucking wind.I looked at other Petzls, and finally settled on the Tikka Plus.I liked that the lamp had adjustable pointing positions, and it seemed bright even in a well-lit store.Plus the sturdy headband fit well; it didn't feel like it would fly off if I sneezed too hard, or break under heavy use.Also, the Tikka Plus was light, compact even with the wide elastic headband, and ran on easily replaceable AAA batteries.Finally, the price was right, especially compared to some of the high-end, rechargeable models I saw.

I knew I'd made the right choice after the first night outside.It still fit my head snug and comfortably, even while walking or moving around in close quarters.As for the light's brightness, it was more than sufficient.I was able to read just fine after dark in my small tent, and it made finding that elusive item at the bottom of my pack much easier.Also, the Petzl came in handy when I had to cross a grassy, wooded campground for that late-night bathroom break.Others have complained about the push button light switch, but I had no real issues with it. The different light intensities were a nice feature - I used the highest one the most, followed by the second brightest for night reading at sack time (this is where the light's tilt function was useful; it helped me achieve a comfortable reading position).

The Petzl Tikka Plus was one of the single most useful camping items I brought along on my Sturgis trip.If you camp a lot, then perhaps a higher-end lamp would suit you better.But for an infrequent camper like me, this one was just fine.

3-0 out of 5 stars Expensive for what you get
I've used Petzl headlamps for many years.In fact, my old Zoom is still working great - now demoted from mountianeering duty because there are so many lighter options with comparable performance.The original Tikka was great when it was first available, but the competition has far surpassed it in terms of value.At $35, the new Tikka plus just can't compete with comparably priced models from Black Diamond or Princeton. ...

Editorial Review

This ultralight, ultracompact, ultracute little LED lamp weighs less than a golf ball and fits in the palm of your hand. Even better, its versatility allows users to attach it to an ankle, wrist, bicep, or most any other body part--including the head, of course. It comes with a retractable Dyneema cord for bodily attachment and operates on three AAA batteries. Backpackers will love it because it fits snugly into nearly any compartment and weighs next to nothing. Even people whose idea of the great outdoors extends no further than the grocery store down the street will like it for evening strolls, as it fits easily into a pants pocket. ... Read more

  • Powered by three AAA batteries (included)
  • Extremely compact--about the size of a roll of film

  • LED light provides 150 hours continuous light

1-0 out of 5 stars My Experience with Zipka
I was very excited to have my Zipka at first, for all the reasons others mention here. Then I noted, as another reviewer did, that it seemed to eat batteries faster than advertised - but I still loved it. Then it began to misbehave. It began flashing and not turning on at various times - really cut my enjoyment. But still tolerable. Then one day I had it mounted on my bike helmet and it flipped off, falling to the ground and breaking in an unfixable way. I won't buy another - if they make one that's more robust and functions consistently, I'd be delighted. I'm going to try the Princeton Tec Aurora now. Hope this helps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic For Camping And Many Other Uses!
I purchased my first Zipka as a stocking stuffer for my husband, HOPING he would use it.It gets used all the time!Taking out the trash, in the workshop, as a book light, around the house and of course Camping! My whole family has since purchased them.The battery lasts forever and its a great way to tend the fire or cook without having to set up a lantern or other light source.Its light weight and durable too.Even my small cousins have them and they work great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow- lasts forever, great product!
This light never dies due to its LED technology.It is not extremely bright but definitely bright enough for illuminating your path at night.It is great for power outages or camping.I feel much safer walking or jogging at night in my neighborhood.Light-weight, very good attachment mechanism.This product is a major improvement compared to the standard head lamp, to the point that everybody should have one.It is a perfect gift in that it is (1) reasonable price, (2) usable by anybody, (3) sufficiently different that people are unlikely to already have it, (4) truly useful/safety feature as opposed to worthless junk that is most gifts. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Bright but fits tight, :(
in a few words... not exactly what you would expect on a "high priced" head lamp. what i found not to my likin's was: the hard plastic surfaces on the lamp piece(with edges) and the battery pack. i guess this would'nt be much of a problem IF you're wearing this unit on a hard hat or such. a nice (removeble for washing) forehead pad would have BEEN really nice to avoid the "forehead burns" as you twist/turn the lamp housing for on/off/brite. i find this set up very unusual,opposed to a simple multi-position switch. What you have to do to operate this unit is turn the lamp housing (the round section)to activate the lamps in one direction IF that does'nt feel good try diming the five LEDs, you have to turn in one direction (on) and quickly turn the other direction (off) and back again to hit the next level of brightness (this feels REALLY great with the amount of tension from three straps pulling against your forehead as you twist and turn the head unit) not done yet, speaking of "tension", this unit has a flex cord from the battery pack to the head unit that must have come off a "trailer" hook up! IF your head is slightly larger then "normal" well be prepared to feel the EXTRA tension from the flex cord as well, id' guess it's about twice that of a phone cord, things that make you go hmmmmmm.. and to TOP it all off, why NOT have the option to remove this 4 AA cell battery pack from the head band for prolongation usage? it would have been really simple with the flex cord provide and a "clip" (much like that on a pager or pocket knife)to clip onto your shirt collar or place in your shirt pocket or waist band. ON the flip side, the lights are BRIGHT no doubt! for what i'll be using this unit (attics/crawl spaces) i guess i'll wear it over my (flipped backwards) ball cap or even perhaps my "bandana" for forehead protection. ...in a few words.... :)

4-0 out of 5 stars I dream of this headlamp.
I have only had the oppurtunity to play with this lamp at the outdoor store nearby.I wore it around the store for almost half an hour.But it seems to be a super powerful and durable lamp.I like being able to setthe brightness, which this allows 3 settings.

I need a new one for my caving helmet, the other 2 Petzl's, Tikka and Zipka, were not up to the harsh conditions, nor were they waterproof.I wonder if they will think me insane if I return and ask to submerge it in a sink or something. The other 2 did not need much depth, as they have no seals.

Seems comfortable when wearing without the helmet, which I NEVER do in or around a cave.But the straps seem as they will stay put on my hemet without aid of duct tape.

I especially like the tilting head.This way I do not have my head in my chest so I can try to see something, causes neck cramps.

This is a pricey one, but if it works as well as it seems and is truly waterproof, the investment is well worth the $$$. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars BRIGHT, VERY BRIGHT
I have owned 3 Petzl headlamps, it's great to have your hands free to fix something on your car or put that bait on your hook when it's dark.

My first headlamp was one of Petzl's first generation models, I've had it for 10 years and it still works fine, not to bright, but it does the job with ease.

The second Petzl headlamp I have is the Petzl E44P Zipka LED Headlamp. This little headlamp ROCKS, Very bright portable, and the batterys last forever!!! It is pretty comfortable and since it is so small you can bring with you anywhere. I would recommend this little powerhouse headlamp to anyone!

But if you are serious about wanting some bright light the Petzl E27P MYO 3 Headlamp is the one to get! You get the best of both worlds. Brighter Led lighting then the Zipka, and if you want to blind that bear that is chasing you during your next backpack trip, turn on the Xenon Halogen light. Seems like it's almost daylight when the Xenon Halogen light is on. HAHA. This is also a very comfortable headlamp, plus the tilting head is perfect to let you get the light where you want it.

I've only owned Petzl, I have never had a reason to switch. They make great Headlamps! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Shine on!
Sunday is "Fort Building Day" in my home.My son and I remove all of the cushions and pillows from our chairs and couches, and build the most incredible forts you've ever seen.We even draw diagrams and take photos of each fort, in case we want to go back and revisit some of the "classic forts" one day.

Since most of our forts are built in my basement, it gets dark in those forts.Really dark.Panic has set in more than a few times when my son has gone missing for a day or longer.But thanks to the focusable flood/spot beam on Petzl Duo LED Headlamp, I am able to navigate my way through the constructed maze of twists and turns, and find my son, safe and sound.

With the ability to choose one of three low-beam LED lights, or a high-beam halogen light, the Petzl Duo LED Headlamp is sure to exceed your lighting needs.

(For more information about building spectacular forts, be sure to read "How to Build Treehouses, Huts and Forts" by David Stiles)

5-0 out of 5 stars Petzl E68 Duo LED Headlamp
I'v been on 2 marathons so far since buying this headlamp, and it is the first to, not only stand up to, but excell at the harsh conditions anything that goes along on one of my night time uphill endurance WC marathons has to. Just that would make it worth it.But it also has an on/off switch lock for not accidentally switching on in your pack and draining your batterys. I'v tried countless headlamps and this is by far the undisputed best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Never left me in a dark cave!
I just LOVE this lamp!

It is powerful, very bright, can be used as a flood or spot light and takes the harsh conditions of being clunked, bumped, rattled and jarred in a cave.Most I have used seem a little tempermental when injured.

I hit it pretty good one time when I stood up about an inch to soon and smacked the helmet on the roof of the cave, me so bad!!My cohort that day looked at the light, it got scratched too when it was also whacked on the roof, since it is attached to my helmet.The lense and case each had pretty decent war wounds, but this baby is like a Timex, it kept on ticking.

It is also waterproof, unlike the other 2 I had prior to this one.Washed it off in the creek, and it stayed lit!It was with me when I was walking through a little waterfall one time and this lamp was unfazed.

After wearing it one time, I removed it so I could clean the lense well.I put it in a duffle bag, that since has disappeared, I guess it got mistaken for someone elses stuff.Had my best lights and caving gear in that bag. ;(

I need to purchase another, though this one is pricey, it is worth the investment.It never left me in the dark. ... Read more
