Petzl Zipka 2 Headlamp

I’ve used this headlamp for several years. Petzl has been producing high-quality headlamps for decades and Zipka has the same amazing quality. Whenever I backpack I always carry my Zipka with me, it’s super useful even indoors when you’re looking for things in a dark and don’t know where the light switch is.

The beauty of Zipka is its retractable cord, which makes the headlamp way more compact than any other headlamp I’ve seen on the market. That way I don’t need any additional case for the lamp as it doesn’t end up tangled with all my other stuff in the backpack.
