User Review: Petzl Tikka XP 2
Price Paid: $54
I have used this excellent headlamp for two seasons of New England AT section hikes in winter. I often find myself walking into the night. I can not imagine ever upgrading.
Petzl is an excellent company, the XP 2 is all you need, extremely bright as promised and light weight. The sliding diffuser is a nice touch in lieu of using another lantern when in the tent. The red light is good for night vision and the blinking feature and integral whistle are good for emergencys.
IMO this is the do all, must have lamp that I would turn around for if I forgot it. Battery life is good as promised.
It is well worth the price. Highly recommended.
