Petzl's Nao RL is here to make your ambitions a reality if your childhood dream was to staff a lighthouse, direct a spotlight, or otherwise command ultra-powerful photon beams. Wielding an absurd 1500 lumen rating, this headlamp melds an ergonomic strap design reminiscent of the Iko with the adaptive light of the Swift RL, which preserves headlamp battery and reduces manual input by automatically adjusting the brightness and beam pattern depending on ambient light conditions. In tricky light such as heavy snow, a standard non-reactive light setting is also available. At a scant 145 grams, this headlamp is unlikely to weigh anyone’s head awkwardly, but the rear battery pack has nonetheless been designed to counterbalance any front weight while preserving battery life to at least seven hours in reactive lighting mode. Comfortable, adaptive, and ridiculously bright: the Nao RL is an essential tool for nocturnal adventurers.
