Petzl’s roots lie in the desire of its founders to serve one passion, and that is purely and simply exploration. Since its beginnings in caving, the company’s mission has remained constant; to offer practical solutions that allow people to progress. Today, that pioneering spirit and passion for exploration have not changed. More than 40-years after their founding, Petzl continues to invent products and provide solutions that allow both recreational and professional users to access some of the most inaccessible places, both day and night.
The TACTIKKA +RGB is a compact head torch ideal for both recreational and professional users, offering a choice of white or red/green/blue lighting to preserve night vision. It’s designed for activities where stealth is a key factor. The TACTIKKA +RGB head torch offers versatile lighting; proximity or focused lighting for movement, BOOST mode for temporary access to maximum brightness (160-Lumens) and three lighting modes (red, green or blue). It also features CONSTANT LIGHTING technology to ensure constant brightness over time, and a mixed beam (wide, focused or red).
At only 88g with the batteries fitted, and with a comfortable, broad headband, the TACTIKKA +RGB can be worn for extended periods of time; the headband also offers sufficient adjustment for it to be worn with most helmets. The torch itself can be angled downwards to bring the beam into exactly the position you need it to be, and angling downwards also gives easy access to the battery compartment. The broad, well-sized function control button, which allows you to easily cycle between lighting modes, is big enough to use even with gloves on.
Whilst the TACTIKKA +RGB is not the smallest head torch on the market it’s easily stowable, and durable enough to put up with some serious abuse. I’ve been using the latest version for over six-months now, and even with regular use I’m still using the original batteries that came as part of the deal, so the run time is obviously exemplary. The TACTIKKA +RGB comes in camo, desert tan, and black.
After using Petzl head torches for many years I have great confidence in what the brand builds, and thus far the TACTIKKA +RGB has proved that they continue to drive the technology forward. This product comes with my complete recommendation.
