The Petzl Zipka headlamp is part of Petzl's Classic headlamp range with a notable point of difference. Instead of a traditional headband, the Zipka features a self-adjusting retractable cord that fits nicely on helmets and around your head. The retractable cord contributes to a minimalist design which takes up very little space and keeps weight to a minimum. The mechanism also broadens the places you can mount the torch; you could wear it on your wrist or attach it to a tent pole or seat post depending on your needs.
The Zipka offers 200 lumen brightness and a wide beam for proximity lighting and movement, with red lighting preserving night vision and ensuring stealth. It also features a phosphorescent reflector which essentially glows in the dark, allowing you to spot it easily in the dark.
The Zipka headlamp offers three lighting modes: proximity, movement and distance vision, and this versatility allows for a wide range of uses.

A really lightweight headlamp, at only 71g, the Zipka is a Hybrid headlamp, meaning it comes with three standard batteries, and is also compatible with the CORE rechargeable battery (sold separately): this allows you to choose how your headlamp is operated, giving freedom to power it however suits you best. The Zipka is compatible with AAA-LR03 alkaline, lithium, or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries.
A single button can be quickly pressed to switch on and select the lighting mode, and this simplicity makes it a great headlamp for stealth activities, as the simplicity and single motions make it less fiddly and require less movement from you to switch on or adjust.
Carry it in your bag as an emergency light, then wear it around your head or attach it to your helmet for hands free lighting.
