Verified Buyer Reviewed by hiker from Sebastopol on Thursday, November 6, 2014I like this Petzl Zipka headlamp for its simple easy to use style. The Zipka style retractable cord makes it easy to put on and take off. Also it's easy to store without a headband. The on/off switch is easy as well, it doesn't have several lighting options. It has a simple on and off switch. Great headlamp for task lighting.
The only problem I found is that it doesn't fit tight. Feels a little loose. I haven't found it to be much of a problem.
Reviewed by Mtbcyclist from Atlanta on Friday, October 17, 2014I specifically sought this out, as I loved my previous one. I finally dropped and broke it. It actually still works but is all taped. I decided to buy a new one. I would have given it 5 stars, but it doesn't have all the light patterns as my old one. Honestly, I don't need them. My other one goes high, low,flashing. This is on or off which is all that is really needed. I love that I can keep it on my wrist. I wore it sleeping at night, so I wouldn't have to feel for a light when I have to get up to use the facilities.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by telern from Front Range, [...] on Sunday, September 28, 2014This is a decent light. Simple, small, no webbing strap to get in the way and lightweight. As chazzyo reviewed; no tilt feature. Not very bright. No other light beam patterns. This is a great backup headlamp should you misjudge the time on your trail run and carry a small pack.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Heather from Utah on Wednesday, August 20, 2014I have been using Petzl headlamps for more than 20 years and I love the Zipka. It is lightweight, easy to use, and has exceptional battery life. I use it camping and at home on a regular basis. I always keep one in my daypack just in case. It can even be worn on the wrist, a very versatile handy product.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tara Tooley from Loveland, CO on Friday, July 25, 2014But my husband has the same one and I've been jealous for about 4 years. Now I've got the cool new one!
