Petzl Actik Review

If you are old enough you might remember the old Petzl Zoom head torches - heavy batteries, short life and glow warm performance. It is hard to believe how much technology has improved when you compare them to the new Actik. It is incredible. For a small lightweight unit the light output is superb and gives incredible illumination at night with awesome battery life. The simple button allows you to adjust the range and intensity of the beam and it's all pretty intuitive. The bright colour is easy to find in your pack, a definite bonus of a non tactical colour, and the lamp pivots for close up work or illuminating around your feet when running. All in all very very good.

I bought this headlamp mostly as a backup light for safety, to bring when the hike might last longer than planned and it becomes dark before getting home, or when my main lamp (more light output) runs empty or breaks when I'm out in the dark running, hiking or mountainbiking. For these uses I find it perfect -small, lightweight, quite strong light and great value. I also use it for various reasons when I need some light working, fixing things, walking.
