    Comments about PETZL Tikka XP2 Headlamp:

    I bought the Tikka XP2 for myself and the Tikka 2 for my girlfriend who said she didn't really think she needed a headlamp. Well that was until we hiked back from Mt. Marcy and hit camp at night, and had 4 miles to cover in the Adirondacks in darkness. So I put my headlamp on and she put hers. I couldn't see a thing. I could barely see the trail in front of me with the XP2... I couldn't believe it. Clearly the single bulb was not enough. Her headlamp ended up illuminating the trail for both of us. I couldn't believe it!!!! And the XP2 was supposed to be the better of the two models!! All I can say is I was lucky we had both and VERY lucky we had made it to camp and didn't have to hike downhill in the dark, otherwise I probably would be in a cast now. ***** for the Tikka 2, Zero * for the XP2

    Powerful, bright, durable quality

    Comments about PETZL Tikka XP2 Headlamp:

    Flat out, I've owned the rest and Petzl is the best. The Tikka XP2 is brighter and has a wider array of functionality than the Tikka Plus and Tikka Plus 2. I use the XP2 every day. Yes. Every day. I have close to 15 years experience with Petzl headlamps as a wire installer weekdays and camping/hiking enthusiast on the weekends. I was surprised to read a negative review about the XP2. I have owned 5 different models of Petzl, one Black Diamond and others and the Tikka XP2 is the brightest, most diverse headlamp for me. All the Petzl's have incredibly long lasting battery life and the very best quality components. Headbands that don't lose grip over time. Plastics that don't feel "cheap" and rugged durability that lasts and lasts.

    Comments about PETZL Tikka XP2 Headlamp:

    Once you get used to petzl headlamps you become a bit snobbish. It is something about the light quality such, the evenness of bean and the color the light. If you spend a lot of time hiking or climbing at night you learn to appreciate it. As far petzl headlamps go, this is one of the best.
    I love the flip up diffuser on this model. Not only does it produce even light, it simplifies the botton operation.

        Comments about PETZL Tikka XP2 Headlamp:

        Bought this unit this summer for extended back packing trips and it has performed flawlessly. With a weight of only 3.1oz it is literally worth it's weight in gold and for roughly $50 you just cant beat the value.
        The modes albeit modest, are really all you need, narrow beam for night trail walking, wide beam for camp site, hi/low beams, red light for not waking a fellow hiker.
        Too many good things to say....

          Comments about PETZL Tikka XP2 Headlamp:

          Have a PrincetonTec Fuel that I love, but its very basic. LEDs and a headband. Picked up the XP2 so I could get the Core rechargeable. Ends up Petzl is updating the Core so I got mine at a good price, but am unsure about what the support/compatibility is going to be for the rechargeable battery upgrade.
          I wore this out kayaking at night and could see fairly well to shore from a good 100/200 yards out. Also wore this while running in the gloomy winter months. Faced the blinking red to the back and put it on over my wool cap and was good to go!
          Overall great choices for safety flasher and light level. Looking forward to programming the Core and playing around with the OS a bit.
