|Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp - The Tikka Plus headlamp by Petzl meets the need for versatility during outdoor activities, with several modes and lighting colors that adapt to each situation. It has proximity lighting for travel, a boost mode for temporary access to maximum power, an ambient mode with reduced brightness, red lighting combining visual comfort and discretion, or a strobe mode usable at any time to signal one's presence. With CONSTANT LIGHTING technology the brightness does not decrease gradually as the batteries are drained.
Proximity vision offers a mixed beam with a wide, uniform flood, while a mode adapted for movement gives you a mixed beam with a focused component allowing you to move around comfortably. The ambient mode gives you a wide beam with reduced brightness to avoid blinding others in a group situation, and provides a long burn time. The boost mode allows temporary access to maximum power, red lighting offers discreet close range vision and a strobe mode designed for signaling one's presence is accessible at any time.
Burn time management allows user to easily anticipate battery replacement by automatically switching to reserve mode when the batteries are running low and then to red lighting when they are nearly empty. By using Ni-MH or lithium batteries you can increase performance even more. The push-button control is easy to use even with gloves, and the washable headband is designed for dynamic activities and is secure and absorbent. For a versatile headlamp that will truly show you the way, check out the Tikka Plus headlamp by Petzl.
Specs for Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp:
I had previously owned a Princton Tec Quad and never had a Petzl lamp but this is well made with some style if that matters to you. The three modes for white light, high, low and flashing. The red light only has two modes of consistent and flashing. It is very sturdy offers a great beam of light for the white light with only one bulb. I have had it for just 3 weeks so no experiences with it running low yet but I am using it sparingly.

I want to start off by saying, I researched the h*** out of headlamps before deciding upon the tikka plus 2. This is the first headlamp I had bought in over 8 years, I am very impressed with the advancements in technology and how well they were applied in making the tikka plus 2. It weighs almost nothing and has a great click system for angling the lamp in a certain direction. The red light is awesome for not disturbing others at night.
I've been thinking about buying a headlamp for a while now, finally got tired of bumping around the campsite at night so I picked this baby up. I like the fact that my hands are free so I am able to do other things besides holding a lantern. The lightning is great and there are several modes depending on your situation and surroundings.
