Petzl Tikkina² Headlamp

With Winter setting in fast, and my last Wednesday run with the CRAG crew ending in pitch black, I set out to buy a headlamp specifically for running. My Petzl Tikkina² has since served me for more than 3 years! Check this post to see a headlamp comparison.

I borrowed The French’s Petzl Tikkina² headlamp when I ran the Bat Run. I was suitably impressed by it: it was lightweight and sat comfortably even when I was pounding down Platteklip Gorge, and it gave off an excellent beam of light.


  • 23 Lumens
  • tiltable beam — useful when braaing
  • 2 lighting modes operated with one large, easy to use switch
  • IP X4 water-resistant rating 1
  • lightweight (44g + 36g batteries = 80g)
  • adjustable strap
  • 3 x AAA batteries (included)
  • battery pack is easy to open
More than three years later, my Petzl is still in perfect working order, and I use it when running, hiking and camping.
1 IP X4: Splashing water (Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect)
