One look at the Petzl Duo and you will know that this is the new generation of headlamps. The ergonomically designed case holds two operating bulbs (standard and halogen) and is water resistant--perfect for kayaking, caving, canyoning, kayaking and any wet-weather sports. The Duo is also excellent in rescue situations and emergencies.

This is a pretty nice setup. I use mine extensively and it is still on the original bulbs. Does eat the aa's though. I recently found a duo that took c 's in a belt pouch. The high beam is not great for distance but i guess it is relative to what you are used to(rechargable mag-lite).

Great to have the dual beams. I switched out the standard bulb with a 5 LED module and now it's a much nicer setup. Lots of light and fits great on the Erin Rod helmets. One down side is the "clicking" mechanism for vertical ajustment. It always feels like I'm going to break it or strip the ratchets.

The only thing that keeps this from being a five is the weight.(4 AA batteries) I like having the option of switching from halogen to led and back.

The Petzl Duo headlamp has two beams, one high and one low (halogen and standard bulbs respectively). Use the halogen when you need bright light, and flick the switch over to the standard to conserve battery life. The Duo is water resistant and ideal for wet caves, canyoning, kayaking, and any wet weather sports or rescue situation. Runs on 4 AA batteries
