Say goodbye to the night with the  Swift RL 900 Lumens head torch from Petzl. The Swift provides an amazing level of brightness for such a low weight with Petzl's superb reactive lighting.

Petzl says:

With 900 lumen brightness at only 100g, SWIFT RL is the most powerful of the Petzl compact headlamps. With REACTIVE LIGHTING technology, a sensor analyzes the ambient light and automatically adjusts the brightness to user requirements. The headband is reflective for night visibility. It has a two-part construction for excellent stability in dynamic and committing activities such as mountaineering, trail running or skiing. SWIFT RL is intuitive, with a single button for easy control over all lamp functions. Rechargeable, it has a five-level gauge for precise monitoring of the battery charge level.

Banish darkness with the Petzl Swift RL 900 Lumens Headlamp. An incredible level of brightness in such a small and light package. The burn times are impressive and with a battery charge indicator you can easily manage the life of the rechargeable battery.

You can choose between standard lighting or Petzl's unique and superb reactive lighting system. I have used Petzl's first torch with Reactive lighting for years and it works beautifully. The brightness and shape of the beam adjusts instantaneously to whatever your looking at so you won't get blinded if stop to look at a map for example. The reactive lighting also conserves batter power as the light is not so bright if your looking at the path and will increase in brightness when your looking around.

The innovative ergonomic headband is reflective increasing your visibility when out at night. A lock function prevents the torch being switched on by accident when being knocked about in your rucksack.

Superb head torch. Recommended.

FOR: Tiny. Weighs nothing. Astonishingly powerful. Looks good. Not all that expensive given it’s power. No bluetooth nonsense. Comfortable. Reactive function really does work. AGAINST: On full power battery lasts a little over 2 hrs, takes around 6 hrs to charge and a spare will cost you a whopping £50. A problem only really if that isn’t long enough or you aren’t anywhere you can charge it. It isn’t absolutely waterproof, so no caving or swimming. Can’t use conventional batteries. Operation isn’t quite as intuitive as I’d like, but it isn’t a major problem.
