Has anybody tried the Petzl Iko Core. I'm very tempted, but wonder if the Swift might be better.

The battery pack on my Alpkit Gamma had a melt down. Literally.

I have the Swift JD, a recent Xmas pressie. Very impressed so far, I've retired my Hope R4 because of it!

Mine is an Alpkit Qark

Doesn't the weight of the battery pack on the front make it drop down as you bounce along? I had a cheepo headtorch like that, it was a bit annoying unless you had the strap done up super tight.

Got something to say?
