The all new Petzl Zipka is a simple, just one button, and compact headlamp that has a 200 lumen white LED and a wide beam. Instead of a standard elasticated headband the Zipka has a clever and very low weight/bulk zip system that is basically a self adjusting retractable cord, so so can wear it on your head as normal or wrap it around things, examples are; bike handlebars, your wrist or a ruckack strap, a branch on a tree, the possibilities are endless. The zip system also makes the head torch very low bulk and descreet making it pocket sized and very easy to carry, this makes it particlarly ideal for travel. Thanks to a long burn time, it is practical for outdoor activities like camping or trekking, walking or for traveling, and also for daily activities and projects around the house. The phosphorescent reflector helps you find it in the dark, which is ideal for campers and with the addition of a red LED it will help prevent members of a group from blinding each other or preserve your night vision.
The new Petzl Zipka weighs in at 71g, no excuse not to carry it it, and runs off 3 x AAA batteries but can also be used with the optional Core Li-ion battery to save on batteries. As you would expect the Zipka is IPX4 weatherproof so british rain will not bother the torch.
