Petzl Zipka Headlamp


See available headlamps


Redesigned with a new housing, 3 modes, the addition of a red light mode, and a big lumen boost, the Zipka is better than ever. Perfect for travelling, camp chores, adding to an emergency kit, or just looking in the crawlspace.

  • Retractable head-strap made of Dyneema™, one of the strongest fibres in the world
  • Single LED casts a wide even beam that's best for proximity lighting
  • Red LED is great for preserving night vision and not disturbing tent mates
  • Simple 1-button design easily cycles through the 3 brightness settings and red mode
  • Light dims gradually over the burn time rather than suddenly dimming and going dark
  • IPX4 water proofing means the light keeps shining even when Mother Nature has other ideas
  • Glow in the dark ring on the front makes finding the light in the dark easy
  • Compatible with CORE rechargeable battery pack and Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (neither included)
