Petzl e+LITE Emergency Headlamp

November 25, 2008

I get carried away sometimes of how cool I think am with my gear selection. Last year on Rainier I wanted all my gear to be lighter, smaller, and perform like a jaguar ninja. I brought along the Petzl e+LITE headlamp and I have to say I am impressed but probably wouldn't take it again. PRO'S Don't get me wrong. Petzl did a great job cranking out the power with this teeny little guy. Check out these treats. 45 Hours of light Free pivot position which is great for hanging in a tent. Chill elastic band that doesn't give you a headache. 27 grams of weight, let me know if that is too heavy for you. Lithium battery that can be easily replaced. Flashing switch for throwing a dance party at your campsite. Sweet clip for going on the climbing harness. CON'S It's a great backup, I wouldn't use this as your main headlamp. The light strength is great, but not good to rely on for serious night hiking. It can feel a little loosey goosey when your trying to change the light option. Ok really not too many con's. For $30 this would be great for throwing in the car to change a flat at night or as a back up light source for your trip. The case it comes with is pretty sweet for keeping matches dry or anything else you can stuff in there. The size is unbelievable though, you really won't know its there in your pack.
