rated 5 of 5 stars Great ice tool for waterfall ice and mixed climbing! Taken me from Rjukan to the Alps and back again! Great ice tool! I bought mine used though a friend (so I do not own the newest generation). It's been perfect for me, climbing WI 3-5 and mixed alpine routes. I can't think of much more to wish for in an ice tool. I was so lucky as to get different blades with the tool, so one for training, one for mixed, one for alpine, and one for water ice. Great swing, even without weights. The only thing I… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars The compact size and light weight are a real plus. The use of non-lithium batteries won't cause any concerns if you carry this on an airplane. This was purchased to replace an older headlamp. I like Petzl products and was looking for a bright compact light that was not too "flashy" and had minimal functions. This model does the trick. This light was purchased as a backup for some ice cave exploration and glacier hiking in Iceland and because of the concern regarding carrying lithium batteries for… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great headlamp for backpacking and camping. Petzl’s e+Lite ultra-compact emergency headlamp offers lightweight, compact packaging, and a 10-year battery.

Two lithium 2032 batteries have enabled Petzl to offer a 10-year stored battery life, perfect for a disaster kit. Measuring 1- 1/2 inches by 1 inch, the one-ounce headlamp comes… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bright, reactive lighting maximizes battery life and optimizes brightness for the task at hand. Been using the Nao for a couple years now for any fast paced nighttime activity including trail running, roller skiing, cross country skiing, and night mountain biking and a bit of mountaineering. I used it last January during a 24 hour run in Wisconsin and although 500+ lumens wasn't needed as the long distance necessitated a slower pace, it definitely helped psychologically since the sun is down for… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, plenty of ventilation, easy to adjust. What's not to like? I wore this helmet just once last year. Didn't really needed it, decided to take it for a test drive, just to get the feel of it. My head circumference is 55.5cm so I could marginally fit in Size 1 (48-56cm). If I was going to wear a way. That's why I chose Size 2 (53-61cm) with room to spare.It features a 5-step side ventilation system and a fixed one in the back. Couldn't get any better than this.The headlight… Full review
