The Petzl TacTikka Plus Headlamp is your best bet if you’re in the market for a great, versatile, lightweight headlamp. This thing weighs 2.5 ounces, burns bright for 150 hours on AAA batteries and is completely waterproof, making it the most reliable headlamp on the market. Instead of using one big ‘spot light’ lamp, it’s made with four powerful little LEDs, giving you a broad source of light perfect for climbing, cycling or setting up camp. There are three brightness settings so you can crank it up to charge up the trail in complete darkness or use the red fold-down lens to read a book in your tent.
