The Petzl Zipka E093GA00 head torch is an ultra-compact, black head torch with a maximum light output of 300 lumens. Absolutely unique about the Petzl Zipka is how the head band works. It is namely incorporated in the closure and stores itself. This enables you to carry and attach the torch in many different ways. You can pull out the universal elastic as far as you would like. As such you can also wear the Zipka on your wrist or arm or attach it to a tent pole. If you remove the light the strap will roll itself up again. Incredibly practical. Don't hang the Petzl Zipka around your neck. With 20 kg the wire might snap after which you run the risk of asphyxiation or cuts. The Petzl Zipka is great for outdoor activities such as camping and hiking.
This Petzl Zipka has an exceptional endurance and is easy to control. You can choose from white or red light. You can always easily switch between the five light modes. The light is strong enough to illuminate up to 65 meters around you.
To be able to easily find the light in the dark the Petzl Zipka is enhanced with a glow-in-the-dark reflector. It lights up in the dark. The Zipka is IPx4 waterproof and can therefore withstand wet circumstances. This doesn't mean that you can use it underwater. However, the light will function perfectly during rain showers or an hour of sweating.
