The Petzl Myo is a powerful, programmable head torch with several lighting modes that can be programmed easily by the user ranging in brightness from 20 to 170 lumens (370 lumens in Boost mode).
If you were setting off in the middle of the night for example, such as on a typical Alpine start, you could program the maximum power in the first mode (for maximum light when crossing a glacier), a medium power in the second mode (maybe more suitable when the terrain gets steeper), and a low power for reading maps or close proximity work in the third mode, keeping the fourth mode set on SOS just in case. You can easily switch between the modes using the multifunction on/off switch.
The options are endless so you can set up the Myo exactly how you'd like to based on the activity you are doing. If you are going on a short night run for example, you could just run the head torch on full power. The Myo will automatically cut the power when the batteries are almost discharged to help preserve a bit of battery life. There is also a boost mode which kicks out an extra strong light beam, which is helpful when searching for a path or feature at night. The wide angle beam can be changed to a focused beam instantly when needed by flicking down the filter in front of the lens.
