Petzl Zipka Headlamp - Black




Using Petzl's clever retractable cord system, the classic Zipka headlmap is one of the most compact headtorches out there. This latest version belts out 300 lumens of brightness; amazing for such a light and compact unit.

Its self-adjusting retractable cord, a Petzl patent, offers various possibilities for wearing on your head or for mounting onto handlebars, around fenceposts or attaching to helmets.

The glow in the dark reflector helps you locate your Zipka in the dark or at the bottom of a rucksack, while the red lighting prevents members of a group from blinding each other and helps preserve night vision. The red strobe feature is useful in an emergency, as is the low profile rescue whistle that's integrated onto the headstrap.

The Zipka is also a HYBRID headlamp that is also compatible with both AAA batteries (both Ni-MH and Lithium) and the Petzl CORE rechargeable battery.

Buyers Guide - How to choose a head torch

What should you never go out into the hills without???? A torch!
This key little piece of equipment is not just there to help guide you through your nighttime adventures but it can be an emergency beacon and signalling device too. A small investment (and battery or power management) can literally save your life.
The humble headlamp has undergone an astounding technical re-vamp in the past ten years, not least in the amount of brightness they emit………..

- So what, exactly, is a lumen?
- Why should we focus on more than lumens?
- How long will my headtorch last before recharging/requiring a battery change?
- What is a Dual Fuel Torch???
- How do I know my torch is waterproof?
- Do I get what I pay for?
- What is the safest way to light my tent without carrying a separate lantern?

Top tips to make the right choice:

In rain or snow move the light from your head to chest height (i.e: on a pack strap) this is more comfortable for your eyes and improves your vision. This technique also works really well in still, damp cold conditions – with the light at chest height the light will not reflect off the water molecules that condense in front of your face as you breath out.

An orange light option preserves night vision but still allows you to read contours on maps. This function can work well for ultra’s or orienteering.

Try it on. Elastics come in a variety of widths and even if you are planning on using your torch on a helmet there will be times it will be on your head in camp. If you wear a ponytail – make sure it fits!

  • Petzl Zipka Headlamp - Black review by Graham, on 22/01/2021 11:07:02

    This is a good headlight and easy to wear. However I have an older model which I much prefer. I find this one very difficult to switch to the light I require, I dont have time to mess around, time is usually of the essence. When I need light I need it quickly but thats difficult with this headlight.
