The Petzl Adapt system allows the light body to be attached to a belt or jacket with the clip mount or to a helmet or other hard surface with the adhesive mount. It's the most versatile TacTikka ever.


Petzl designed the TacTikka Adapt Headlamp for extreme versatility. Use it as a headlamp or unclip the elastic band and clip the light to your belt, your helmet, the inside of your tent, or any other clip-able substrate.


Based on the much-lauded Tikka XP, the Petzl Tactikka XP Adapt LED headlamp goes a couple better, with filters for nighttime visibility and new mounting options! Red, green and blue filters aid your ability to see in the dark without experiencing night blindness caused by rush of bright light against the eye. Cover mechanism lets you slide the filter of your choice over the powerful LED as needed; filters easily swap out in moments. Plus, for added versatility, the lamp can be removed from its headstrap and mounted to clip for attaching to a belt, cap brim or pack strap. Set also comes with a second, self-adhesive clip for attaching lamp to firm, smooth surfaces, such as the front of a climbing helmet. LED outputs 40 lumens and throws light up to 35m on high and 18m on low. Super-powerful Boost mode throws light up to 50m when you need extra visibility; Boost mode stays active for a maximum of 20 sec. to prevent overheating of the LED circuitry. Push-button switch easily changes between 3 brightness settings and a strobe mode so you can choose the appropriate light level for the task at hand. Slide-away diffuser lens cover changes beam shape from spot light to area light for different conditions. Powered by 3 AAA batteries, headlamp can provide up to 120 hrs. of light on low setting and 60 hrs. on high. 3-color battery-charge indicator provides visual status of remaining battery life, eliminating guesswork. Adjustable elastic band comfortably fits a variety of head sizes; tilting ratchet head adjusts light where you need it without crooking your neck. Petzl Tactikka XP Adapt LED headlamp is designed with IPX4 water resistance for reliability in inclement weather.
