I needed a headlamp to go car camping with the family. Decided to splurge on the higher end Petzl Tikka XP. I have now taken it climbing, mountain biking, and even running in the evening. SUPER bright, with a handy feature that dims the light, saving your batteries and your friend's eyes. Wasn't quite sure about the red light at first, but now I use it very frequently. Great for going into AT huts and not blinding others. Have an infant? use the red light to check on them. Wont wake them up! This headlamp is amazing. All pros, no cons. Spend the extra 10-15 bucks and get the XP.
