The Petzl Tactikka lamp offers a perfect illumination.

Field report

Tested at home, the TACTIKKa is also ideal for camping or other outdoor activities. The multifunction button: Since this is a pure headlamp, it is essential that you feel the keypresses well. The button is quite clear and mounted on the top of the lamp. Therefore, the operation is quite simple. Once pressed, the TACTIKKA lights up with a small output of 20 lumens. Pressed again in the standard range, the lamp shines with 100 lumens.

The lighting:

The TACTIKKA by Petzl illuminates the outdoor area in front of the wearer rather punctually. The manufacturer himself describes the illumination as "wide." One could say: "A matter of opinion." The punctual lighting speaks for a full luminosity in a small concentrated area. As already mentioned, the light cone assessment is a matter of opinion the best way to make the user himself a picture of the illumination.

The lamp body:

It has a flexibly suspended, very well-crafted lamp body, which can also be adjusted in four stages. The lamp snaps perfectly in every step, even with fast movements; the TACTIKKA keeps its position. So it is possible to change the headlamp thanks to their suspension according to their own needs the circumstances. Very positive to mention here is the phosphorescent reflector, inside the lamp, which is not represented in all headlamps. In lighting mode, this is charged. That will keep the light on for many hours in an off way. This little highlight in the reflector makes it the most natural thing in the world to find the lamp in the dark. The lamp body is designed very much for the benefit of the wearer, as it is bent on the front side so that it adapts perfectly to the shape of the forehead. So no unpleasant bruises on the forehead and hopefully no headaches.

The headband:

The rubber band for the holder, which is located on the lamp, can be adjusted in many ways and also cleaned well, due to its composition. It is unavoidable that over time, dirt and dust accumulate on the headband, so it is very beneficial that the headband can be easily cleaned.

The processing:

The market is full of headlamps, so it is not surprising that manufacturers here are also romping for more than 50 $, sometimes even over 100 $ call for their headlights. Since the TACTIKKA Petzl is almost a bargain for just around 50 $. Nevertheless, no compromises have to be made in terms of fabrication, design, and material, despite their low price.


Due to the simple operation, the lamp can be handled very well. For most uses, the illuminated area is quite sufficient. The type of power supply with batteries has the advantage that you do not have to worry about how they recharge it; on the other side, you can use the rechargeable Core Accu. It can be said that the lamp from Petzl is a very recommendable product since the function including the processing offers an excellent price/performance ratio. "What do you want more"!
