The Petzl e+LITE is a tiny, bright, and useful emergency headlamp. Stash one in your emergency kit, backpack, or car. The multiple modes for the white and red LEDs is a nice touch. It runs on lithium coin cell batteries, so cold weather and long-term storage shouldn't give you any trouble. Unfortunately the light is not regulated by electronics, so a spare set of batteries is good to keep around. Still, for the size this puts out a lot of light! Good stuff.
I was skeptical of getting a headlamp -- I thought it would be annoying and clunky, not worth strapping to my head rather than holding in my hand. Not true at all! This headlamp is super light, with a thin strap; while camping, I forgot I was wearing it. The switch is easy to use and has plenty of off stops (so you don't have to click past "bright white" to turn it off). It was perfect for walking on the established path between the campsite and the lake; it was also just right for reading in my tent and for checking under the seats before returning a rental car. I love that it has both white and red settings (so you can preserve your night vision for stargazing), and I figure the flashing settings will be handy at some point for making me visible when walking on dark streets. I don't think I'd be comfortable walking through the woods (without a path) with this light -- on its high beam, it may not be bright enough to keep a careful eye both on the ground and on eye-level branches. But I haven't tried, and it might be fine. I think this headlamp is perfect for anyone who doesn't want a floodlight when camping and hiking.
