Petzl TIKKA Headlamp

The original Tikka from Petzl is back. Just as small and light as before but now with more lighting power. In a teensy package with 3 settings plus a red light, this little guy will keep your life lit up before the sun comes up (or after it goes down!). The Tikka is great to keep in the car so you don’t forget it when you’re groggily preparing for a dawn patrol. At 350 lumens in Distance mode, it will nicely light up the skin track or vague deer trail. Hanging in camp waiting for the storm to break? The low-lumen setting lasts 110 hours, which hopefully is longer than your reading time in the tent. The new Tikka is also compatible with Petzl's CORE rechargeable system, which ups the max lumens to 450. The Petzl Tikka is a great headlamp at a great price.

  • Three lighting modes: proximity, movement, and distance.
  • Single-button operation is easy to use even with gloves.
  • Red light mode prevents blinding you or your friends.
  • Phosphorescent reflector helps find the lamp in the dark.
  • Comes with 3 AAA batteries or uses a CORE rechargeable.
  • Weatherproof IP X4 casing for use in all conditions.
  • Compact and lightweight for easy storage.
  • Max distance: 70 meters (230 feet).
  • Max burn time: 110 hours (0.15 months).
  • Max brightness: 350 lumens (1 camera flash).

Question from Anonymous
I just purchased the white one from you. Does it have a lockout mode? Was hoping I could press and hold the on/off button long enough for it to lock (for storage in my pack), but so far it doesn't seem to be locking.
Answer from Emmett I

Starting with the 2023 model, it does! Press and hold the on/off button till the indicator light flashes red a couple of times (about 4 seconds). Then, to unlock it, press and hold the button till the light turns on, or press the on/off button 4 times in a row.
