    Innovative headlamp with smartphone connectivity.

    As if Petzl's brightness-adjusting Reactive Lighting weren't innovative enough, the Reactik Plus Headlamp includes Bluetooth technology so you can personalize the headlamp via MyPetzl Light's app on your smartphone. Reactive Lighting automatically adjusts its brightness based off distance in order to provide a longer burn time, visual comfort, and minimal handling. Look from the trail to your skis or climbing harness, and you'll instantly notice the headlamp adjust its brightness from a powerful beam to a close-range light.

    MyPetzl Light's application adapts the headlamp's performance to specific activities like trail running, mountaineering, trekking, or backpacking. You can also change the brightness, check the battery, and more with your smartphone. The Reactik Plus also features a rechargeable battery that can last for more than half a day, and to make sure you get the most out of the battery, Petzl included a lock function that prevents the headlamp from turning on when it's in your backpack. Petzl also added a partially-padded, adjustable, and washable headband, as if this headlamp weren't already completely convenient enough.

    • Bluetooth connectivity to MYPetzl Light smartphone app
    • Rechargeable battery can last for up to half a day

    The best headlamp

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Awesome headlamp, with tons of features/customization. I love the adaptive lighting, and that there are multiple settings. There's even a feature where you can send an SOS signal! (You gotta set up the app, though.) The number of customizations can be overwhelming, especially since there are only two buttons on the thing, so looking over the (short) manual might be useful!

    Let There Be Light!!

      Dusk Settles and the darkness begins to engulf the earth. The only thing that could prevent such eternal blackness is the beam of a Petzl Reactik headlamp. I had struggled climbing peaks, finding gear and cooking food when I was too naive to know the difference in headlamps. It was a cool autumn evening and our plan was to summit a nearby peak so that we could sleep on the saddle and rise for the sunset. It was during this night hike up the southern face. We climbed starting at dusk and reached the top about an hour and a half later. The Petzl was an excellent addition to the hike, the auto dimmer was an excellent way to save battery and light the trail. We bow drilled a fire at the saddle that night and made some hot coco. Sleeping under the stars is one of my favorite things. THe Petzl again was able to help light up the campsite and also allowed my to read that evening before falling asleep. That morning we awoke to a brisk breeze and again the Petzl helped me pack up before sunrise and make it to the summit before the sun crested the horizon. THe sun drove the darkness away as well as my Petzl until the next night. This headlamp is amazing and I will most likely never go back to any other brand. THe Reaktic has a comfortable headband with an easy to use adjustable strap. THe battery pack is rechargeable and doesn’t require batteries which is nice. It has a multitude of features and settings to save battery power.

      Love This Headlamp

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I absolutely love this head lamp! It is really bright and you can see well. It charges fast and is easy to use. It has a lot of different settings for the times you don't need as bright of a light. I wouldn't buy a different head lamp. I have used it several times and haven't had any problems with it yet.

      Love at first try

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I just got this headlamp and it was love at first sight. I love the dim feature on it when you look down at your watch or it senses an oncoming headlamp. It's kinda big which makes you think it wouldn't work that great for running but the dual strap in the back really holds it in place. And it's so awesome that it's rechargeable!!

      Great for running!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've had this headlamp for almost a year now and have used it a ton, primarily for early morning or late night trail runs. Every headlamp I've had before this one would fall on my face about 5 minutes into a run and I'd end up carrying it in my hand. The band on this works great for running and I never have to adjust it mid-run. Also, the auto-adjust mode is fantastic for changing your gaze from down at the trail to up scanning around for eyes whilst running alone at night. My favorite part of the Bluetooth function is that you can check to see exactly what percentage battery you have left, which adds peace of mind on longer runs. I've also used it for hiking, camping and alpine approaches. Excited to try it out this winter on early morning skins! I couldn't be more happy with this purchase and bought a second one for my husband.

      The last headlamp you'll ever buy.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      What more could you possibly want from a headlamp? It's completely customizable! You can create 6 custom settings (3 reactive, 3 constant) right from your phone.

      If you realize halfway into a trip that you need more light (surprise, that descent took longer than you thought, and now you get to do a class 4 scramble in the dark) or you need more light (you keep blinding your friends, even on the lowest setting) — just pull out your phone and make the adjustment!

      On the dimmest possible setting, you still get enough light for campsite functionality. On the brightest setting... well, let's just say I wish I had THIS light instead of the Reactik when I had to do that class 4 scramble in the dark. :)

      My only complaint is the software. It seriously needs some bug fixes deployed. Don't be surprised if it crashes a few times while you're setting your light up. But notice that I still gave the light 5 stars. While annoying, I'm still glad I have this headlamp in my climbing/camping arsenal.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This headlight is perfect for anything you throw at it. The bluetooth app works well to show you how much battery time you have left and to manually adjust the settings. Inside a tent, the light gets soft enough to diffuse perfectly. You can use the red light mode in low light settings so you dont blind yourself at night when you're taking a tinkle. The fact that it is rechargeable means you don't have to deal with buying overpriced batteries and you're reducing your footprint. Overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the market for one headlamp that can replace all others in your gear closet.

      Great headlamp!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this headlamp! The power and features are great for the price and it is SO comfortable on my head! I work in the jungle (it's very dark, I wear a headlamp for long stretches at a time) and so wanted something better and more comfortable than my last headlamp. This is everything I wanted and then some. I confess I haven't used the bluetooth much, but it seems fun if you geek out on that sort of thing. RECOMMENDATION: if you're like me and end up in places with no electricity buy the Petzl adaptor battery pack that lets you use regular AAA batteries in addition to the rechargeable pack the headlamp comes with (also available through Backcountry).

      Perfect for Trail running

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Got a head lamp for late night mileage on some trails and outside of town. The reactive lighting works perfectly for when it hits lighter areas with lights or other vehicles shining.

      Sooooo cool!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Before buying this headlamp I sort of wondered if I actually needed this techie of a headlamp. Turns out the tech on it is awesome and so worth paying a bit extra for! I love that it's rechargeable, no more buying new batteries for it! The reactive lighting is so helpful and the lock function is great for not wasting the charge when you don't need it! Very happy I made this upgrade!

      Blind your friends with this head lamp

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      You really do have to be careful with this head lamp. If you forget to cover it or turn it off it is so bright you can really annoy your friends by blinding them with this head lamp. It is completely comfortable to wear directly on your head. When it is warm and you don't have a hat or headband the fabric on the inside makes it easy wear. Even running and bouncing around it stays in place and comfortable. I have friends who run 100 milers and they have bought these after seeing mine. You can buy a spare batter for not a whole lot and they are small enough to carry with you. I'm buying a second one because I love mine so much!

      Amazing light with amazing tech

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this light. The reactik technology is awesome. Headlamps are designed for Hands free lighting. The Reactik adjustable lighting takes that to a higher level. You have low level brightness when you need it and long throw ultra bright vision when you want it, all automatically. It is truly something amazing and useful. The Bluetooth feature is not something that I have used a bunch. It is cool but I don't really use the light in a way where I need that. It is worth the purchase.

      Auto adjust light

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The reactive lighting works really well and is very convenient. Double strap means you can be active while wearing the headlamp, and the rechargeable battery lasts across several weekend camping trips.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm a flashlight junkie. I admit it. When the Reacik+ came across my radar, I couldn't resist. I've been disappointed with headlamps in the past, but this one checks all the boxes: crazy-powerful, easily rechargeable, comfortable to wear and loaded with features. the strap is great and secure and the weight of the light is still appropriate for running. Like another reviewer, I've set the light in Reactiv mode and haven't made any adjustments via the Petal app.

      Great light

        Had it for a few months now and absolutely love using it. I keep it set on "reactive" and haven't had to mess with it since. The band is also really easy to adjust and stays tight.

        Technology these days...

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        So this headlamp is amazing! It has it's own brain! So you can program it to use as much power for however long your hike or climb is. It also automatically adjusts it's brightness depending on the distance of what you are shining your light on. It has a rechargable battery that plugs into a USB. Great headlamp! purchased two!

        Unanswered Question

        How does the strap work for climbing helmets? Like the BD half dome helmet?
