We took the Petzl MYO XP headlamp up the slopes of Rainier this spring to see what we could see. The XP has three lighting settings which is typical of headlamps these days but something we noticed right away was the addition of the Wide Angle Lens which flips up and down depending on your needs. With the lens in place you get a diffusion of the light for a more even visual field. With it folded down you get one powerful pillar of light darting forward. To aid you on your way for particularly tricky sections or for trail finding there is the Boost mode. By holding down the Boost button you increase the beams power and your depth of vision from 85 lumens to 150 lumens (also fun for blinding your partner)! This could also be used for signaling in emergencies or for communicating with the team. Featuring a new LED that is 3 times brighter, 180hour burn time max, 175 grams trail weight, and strapping keeping it secure whether on your head, hat, or helmet. The bulb body is adjustable up and down to aid your vision from close up cooking and reading to scouting and setting up camp.
