  • Compatible with the Petzl Adapt Tikka 2 system (sold separately), which allows you to quickly and easily attach the light in a variety of places

Petzl Zipka 2 LED Headlampis rated5.0out of5by5.
Rated5out of5byfromBest HeadlampI love that this headlamp doesn't have a bulky headband making it so compact that I don't mind carrying it in my pant pocket during this dark time of year, just in case I need it. The retractable string headband is durable. Own several of these for each family member. Like the upgrade on this one to 4 LEDs.

Rated5out of5byfromGood but not very secureVery good product, it does not feel very secure when worn though. It is very easy to put on and remove. But if you brush up against something it will move out of position. Don't buy this if you want something that has to be fastened real tight. For example rock climbing. The product does what is expected and looks very durable so 5/5.

Rated5out of5byfromMy best headlamp yet!This is a great little headlamp. So compact that you have to be careful not to lose it inside the tent or backpack. I like the way it compacts and it is quite bright too. The zip line is also very comfortable, much better than the regular straps. This is my favorite headlamp so far.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat piece of gearI love this headlamp, I had mine for about 5 years and it still works like it did right out of the box. It's the perfect ultra-light headlamp.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat piece of gearI love this headlamp, I literally carry it with me all the time. I've had mine for 4 or 5 years now and it's survived a lot. I still have the factory bulbs in even. If I could change one thing though, it's not waterproof (or at least my older model isn't)other than that it's great.
