    Dial in your lighting.

    Instead of rigging up a complicated system of helmet mirrors to light the trail, just stick the Petzl MYP RXP Headlamp on your dome. With ll different lighting modes ranging from a modest 20 lumens all the way to a staggering 370 (in boost mode), it has the ability to provide the right amount of light for hiking, trail running, or hanging out around camp, and it can burn for up to 50 hours before the batteries need replacing. The MYO ships with 3 AA alkaline batteries, but it is also compatible with lithium, Ni-MH, and Ni-Cd cells, so you can opt for rechargeable options if you prefer (they also provide a longer burn time than the included batteries). Before the juice runs out, the MYO warns you when the batteries are 70% and 90% discharged, too, so you'll always know how much time you have left.

    In addition to the multiple brightness modes, the MYO also lets you choose between Constant and Standard lighting. In Constant lighting, the brightness does not gradually decrease as the batteries drain; it then switches to reserve mode, which broadcasts three lumens for 50 hours, when the batteries near the end of their lives. Standard mode dims as the batteries die, but gives you a longer lifespan if serious brightness isn't as essential. The MYO also comes with an optional top strap for extra stability, and uses a water-resistant construction that lets you hike or run in the rain without zapping yourself.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've never paid much attention to the specs on headlamps. Always just grabbed the cheapest one on the rack and used it til I lost it or destroyed it. Recently I've found myself doing more pre-dawn or post-sunset adventures and decided to try something a little more substantial.

    I've been really surprised on how much of a difference the extra ~100 lumens of this light makes over your standard 2 AAA lamp that usually clocks in at around 200 lumens. For example, it's enough to change a backcountry ski run in the dark from an exercise in survival to something that's actually enjoyable.

    While this is a slightly larger and heavier light, having the battery pack and the lamp separated out distributes the weight evenly and I haven't had any issues with the light bouncing or slipping. I've only used this for dawn/dusk patrols on skis, but I think it would work just fine for running as well.

    My go to headlamp

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of the best headlamps I've ever used. i absolutely love it. i hiked the Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim-to Rim through the night with this head lamp. its bright, and it fits securely on your head.

    Nice Headlamp

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I returned this before I used it because it arrived with a damaged headband strap fitting -- which prevented the top strap from attaching. Other than the quality control issue on the little plastic clip the lighting was superb and the headlamp felt light. I think I will be repurchasing this in the future, once my old black diamond storm finally kicks the bucket. I liked the 3 customizable modes and the diffuser. My initial impressions of the headlamp were very good--I would call this light industry leading in its class.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This headlamp is bright! I wear a baseball cap and have no need to wear my hat backwards with this headlamp due to the vertical adjustability. I use the lowest light setting for doing my nightly feeding chores, and the brightest setting is good enough to spotlight varmints. This headlamp goes with me everywhere

    Great headlamp for running/XC skiing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have been using this headlamp for night time running and XC skiing and it works great. It has an additional strap that goes over the top of your head (not shown in picture) to help keep the headlamp in place. The additional strap is manually added by using a plastic loop that i ended up breaking when putting it together but easily found an alternative (small key chain ring) to make it work..

    Great for Trail Running

      I have been using this for trail running for a month now and I absolutely love it. Having 2 different options for beam pattern is useful when needing to look into the distance and the light filter provides an incredibly wide beam and allows me to run with the same speed and confidence I would in the day light.
      The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the need to use the overhead strap because of the weight of the 3 batteries.
