Expensive, but worth it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Petzl Duo headlamp Led 5 yellow/black headlamp (Sports)
This is far from being the cheapest head torch in the market, but it is certainly one of the best. The weight is reasonable, not as light as some modern head torches, but incomparably better than the sort of thing we were using 10 years ago, which took four type D batteries and ran out in a few minutes. If you use the LED option on this one it will last for ages.
It is supposed to be waterproof to 5 metres. I haven't tested this, but I do know that it keeps going in the rain, and can certainly withstand a few minutes immersion in a pond if you accidentally drop it.
If your work, like mine, sometimes involves being out at night and you want something you can rely on, and which leaves both hands free, then I recommend this torch wholeheartedly. If you only want a head torch for casual use something cheaper will probably do the job.
