Sometimes… the work can’t wait until the sun comes up. When you find yourself doing some lunar labor, you’ve got a few illumination alternatives. One of the most convenient and accessible is a headlamp.
Petzl makes some of the most popular and best performing headlamps around. If you’ve never given them a shot, now’s your chance. This week, 10/12-10/18, all Petzl products are 10% off. More info on that later.
One of the most popular is the Tikka. This classic headlamp comes in at a very reasonable price point, but that doesn’t mean it can’t do some heavy lifting(lighting). It’s got two modes, one for proximity lighting, like working on something right in front of you, and another brighter and wider setting for walking or illuminating a larger area. This small, lightweight unit pumps out 80 lumens, with a range of 50 feet.
This weather resistant headlamp is very easy to use. A single button on the top toggles between lighting modes. One click turns it on, and sets it in proximity lighting mode for close-range work. Another push cranks the power for a brighter beam. One more turns the light off. And the lamp also has phosphorescent reflectors, just a fancy name for glow in the dark bits, which makes the lamp easy to locate in the dark. Fancy.
And as mentioned above, everything Petzl is on sale this week only. Use code “Petzl10” at checkout to get 10% off your purchase of any Petzl item. They have a full line of headlamps, ranging from basic models all the way up to their specialized and performance models. The Tikka is a great all around headlamp, but if you need something more specific, give us a call or chat us online and we’ll find the perfect solution for you.
