Thanks Paul for the first, of hopefully many, headlamp reviews!!
The Petzl Tikka 2 is a no frills, affordable, but in my experience rock solid headlamp.
I picked this up in 2012 for the Hurricane Heat, and while it wasn’t needed, it’s been in my pack for two HHs, and two Beasts, plus a million late night dog walks, a million lost-toy-under-the-couch expeditions, and has yet to fail me.
It takes three AAA batteries, and is simply enough to use – a rotating light unit, a single strand headband, and a button that chances light output levels, and enables the flash mode.
It’s not a top end model, but it’s survived submersion, hours of bouncing around in a pack, and dog slobber wit no problems.
