Petzl Tactikka Plus LED Headlamp

Petzl Tactikka Plus LED Headlamp – great all-around headlamp with red light option I picked up the Petzl Tactikka Plus LED Headlamp after sadly misplacing my Black Diamond Cosmo during the wee hours of the morning at a certain Californian bluegrass festival.  I chose the Tactikka solely because of the red filter – red lights help you maintain your night […]
