User Review: Petzl Tikka XP 2
Price Paid: $58.95
I bought this lamp from a local outdoor store for $58.95 and I have to say it was well worth the money. I use it mainly for Ground Search and Rescue call outs and when we're out in the dense bush or deep woods this thing is great to have.
The spot lamp is very bright and extends a long way out. The quick diffuser slide up is a really neat idea especially for saving the eye sight of others travelling with you or reading maps etc. The red LED's are pretty much perfect, not to bright and not to dim. I also really like the whistle on the side of the headband.
So far battery life is good and the unit has been water proof. I have had it out in a few really heavy rains and a day that was just light rain all day and it has not had any issues.
I highly recommend this unit over anything else I have seen in this price range.
