        Comments about Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Safety:

        I was very nervous about purchasing a headlamp, afraid it would be uncomfortable and bounce around. I have used the Petzel on about 3 night runs now and can't believe the comfort. It doesn't bounce or move. It is not too tight but stays in place. The light is very bright & can be moved up or down. Definitely worth the money.

          I bought it for the GoRuck Challenge and it worked splendidly. The light shined bright for 10+ hours without changing batteries. It also handled the water well. I like that the water resistance depth is specified. I haven't had it long enough to determine if it deserves 5 stars, so I gave it 4 in the meantime.

            My husband runs trails daily with our dogs. During the week in the winter months, he rarely starts his run before twilight. A good headlight is essential. This is the best we've ever owned. Highly recommend it.

              It provided adequate light, but there may be a light out there that provides more. I did start to feel it in my neck after an hour of running with it on my head, but I have a sensitive neck. It is pretty lightweight.

                I used this race for the Northface 50miler in San Fran, which starts in total darkness at 5AM. This little light was perfect--it illuminated the ground in front of me so well that there was never a hesitation in my step. The light can be rotated up or down so you can see further down the road. Highly recommended for trail runners. I was a newbie to these things so I didn't realize you need to wear a bandana with them or some such so it was very uncomfortable without it:) Just keep that in mind if you're a newbie to night races.

                  Comments about Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Safety:

                  If I run before sunrise I use the light to see where i'm going...or more often, so that cars can see me. Once it's dawn, I switch the lamp to "flash" mode so that I'm even more obvious to cars...although I think that some drivers are just blind so it doesn't matter. Anyway, great product. Lightweight, easy to use, what you would want for a dark road or trail run.

                      This head lamp works great. It fits snugly without being too tight and does not bounce around. It also allows easy aiming while not moving after you've set it. The light is very bright and provides plenty of coverage to see directly in front of you as well as several yards down the road or trail.

                        Great product for running before dawn or after dusk. The strobe option is great for when there is enough light for you to see the road, but not necessarily enough for the cars to see you. Just switch to the flashing light and it makes you very hard to miss...or, more to the point, makes sure the cars miss you.

                        I brought this mainly for my early morning long runs during the winter and for relays when I run at night. It's more comfortable than the inexpensive Energizer headlamp it replaced and I like that it clicks into place when you adjust the angle. Although the multiple light settings are nice, it can take a little practice and patience to figure out. Also, the instruction manual, which should have been relatively simple is a little hard to understand with all of it's hieroglyphics/illustrations. Overall, I'm satisfied.

                          I bought this for running in the dark now that the days are so short. It does just what I need; stays on my head with no problem, does not bounce around. It is lightweight; I don't notice it. I like that I can aim it down somewhat so i can see my footing.
                          This could be used for any number of things, but it's great for runners.

I really like the multiple light modes (bright white light, dim white light, red light, flashing, not flashing)and the fact that you can adjust the angle of the light to suit your needs at a given time. I highly recommend this light. I've never had a better one!
