I'm not a great fan of product-specific rechargeable batteries in outdoor products - it rather implies a design focussed on users with a home base to return to rather than those on multi-day trips or most forms of camping. Being able to slot in a couple of AAAs "in emergency" is better than nothing, but I can't imagine you'd get those 335 lumens for long off those.
Anyway, it still looks like a pretty good product for some uses, at a price. What's the weight, please, Jon?
This would go well with the Power Rangers fleece.
As it is expensive, it will probably appeal to some folk.
If it adapts to suit your needs then it'll be fantastic - I'm having terrible trouble keeping sight of the Wee Black Dug's frisbee these pitch dark mornings down the park.
Money well spent if it passes that test.

I;'ll be very interested in how this turns out in the end. It sounds like a great product! Looking down at your map or your hands and getting blinded is a pain and happens way too frequently for me so I ll be seriously thinking about getting one.
Jon, are you likely to get one for review?
From what I understand you can also switch it on and off as you want. The reactive mode is only one function. Its not the only way it can operate... but I agree. It will be good to hear how it works in real life.

Apparently Petzl says it is its most significant new product for several years...

It might be high tech, but £135 for a head torch is a lot of money, especially when cheaper models will do a similar job. I know it has features that cheaper ones lack and it seems very well designed, but I won't be buying one yet!
Prices will drop and the technology will trickle down. Blessed are the early adopters, because they are the providers of fancy second hand toys this time next year.
