The Petzl Zipka is an ultra-compact and lightweight head torch. The Dyneema Zip cord is retractable, working in a similar way to a tape measure. As you pull the cord out you can put the Zipka onto your head, around your wrist or even onto a tent pole. As you let go of the cord it retracts securing the head torch in place.
The lighting modes on the Zipka are simply maximum & economy, with a healthy 120 hours of battery life in the economy mode. All can be accessed easily through the push button button.
The Zipka is also compatible with 3 x AAA Batteries or the Petzl Core rechargable battery.
Please note: As an alternative, the Petzl Tikka is exactly the same head torch but with a more substantial head strap, which is a bit more comfy when worn for longer periods.
