Ultra-light and very compact, the e+LITE emergency headlamp should always be with you. Thanks to its carry case, it is always ready to use and can be stored with its batteries for ten years in a backpack, a vest, or an emergency kit, or used as a back-up headlamp. Its white or red, continuous 50-lumen lighting or strobe lighting helps you to be seen. The whistle integrated in the elastic headband allows the user to signal an emergency. Weighing only 26 grams, e+LITE is an ideal emergency headlamp.

The original Petzl's e+lite Headlamp is back, so you can now choose between the e+lite and the e+lite zip. It's marketed as an emergency headlamp - not sure why since for a summer trip this could be all you need. There is a ten year shelf life on the batteries so the assumption is that you can keep this in your bag for years until you need it.
It still features it's neat little rotary switch which allows easy movement between modes and of course it still has it's little emergency whistle and storage case. A great little head torch.
