Petzl Swift RL (2024)

Person wearing Petzl headlamp outdoors

We’ve been crushing on the rechargeable Swift RL for years on end and it just got even brighter! It’s equipped with Petzl’s innovative Reactive Lighting technology which uses sensors to continuously analyze ambient light and determine exactly what level of brightness you need and automatically adjust accordingly without you ever having to give it any thought. That adaptability coupled with a bounce-free strap design is exactly why our Gear Specialists have long counted on the Swift for night runs and ultras and hiking in challenging and changing conditions. Trust us, the “old” model was plenty bright, but the updated model cranks all the way up to 1100 lumens on its highest setting!

Best Use: Climbing, Hiking, and Running/Fitness

Price: $139.95
