        Needed a new head lamp as my old one has a crack in the housing. I knew I wanted one with the red beam as to not blind fellow campers when we are talking at night. As with my other Petzl this is a great head lamp.

          Comments about Petzl Tactikka Plus Headlamp:

          This light produces a wide flood type of light. It's best for close up tasks. It's great for car camping, but it's not as bright as other headlamps, so I wouldn't use it for night hiking or caving when a brighter light is required. However, for most tasks its fine and has a long battery light. I like the red light filter for preserving your night vision, but I do notice a sliver of white light that gets through at the top of the filter. Great for night reading.

          Best headlamp on the market

            Comments about Petzl Tactikka Plus Headlamp:

            The only drawback is that this headlamp takes 3 AAAs, but while long-distance hiking you can only buy batteries in 4-packs. That means you always have 1 wasted battery. With some other models, you can split a 4-pack with a friend. The other models however, develop some problems over time.

            This isn't exactly waterproof, but it's a lot closer than most of the competitors. The only waterproof headlamp I've seen is a lot heavier.

            The flip-down red filter is surprisingly unique in the headlamp market. Most have a separate red bulb which works fine, but you ruin your night vision and wake up all the other hikers when you cycle through the white modes to reach the red.

              Purchased for night obstacle course mud run. Light weight and comfortable held up after being submerged several feet, stayed on during tower jumps into ponds. Great for night runs, adjustable beam angle and nv cover is nice feature. Also wearing as a back up light on bike rides at night. Quality product.

                Only one set of white LEDs and a red filter. This means you don't have to switch through several light options with your eyes closed to get to night vision-preserving red. You don't have to have bright, white light unless you want it.

                        My one and only complaint is that the light is water resistant not waterproof. In all other regards it meets the high standard of Petzl products.
