Has a red light (this is important to me as I work with animals)
300 lumen bulb is certainly a pretty solid light
3 brightness levels is convenient and also helps save battery
Battery life is decent
Only uses 3 AAA batteries at a time
Uncomfortable to wear
Variable lighting conditions (particularly red light and strobe) are difficult to get to
My husband purchased a Black Diamond headlamp for around the same price, it had a brighter light bulb (400 lumens), has a blue and a green light option (not sure what you'd use it for, but it's there), seemed more comfortable, and was slightly cheaper.
Bike Tip: Recently I also started using it on my helmet when I go for nocturnal bike rides, it works both ways, as a white front light, or as a tail light if I put it on the back of the helmet and in the red blinking mode.
-Great battery life
-Waterproof tested in a long expedition to the Amazon rainforest
-Great light, really bright
-Good red light, strong enough
-Easy to replace batteries
The elastic strap stretches a lot after getting wet with rain/sweat. It looks very bad, and it doesn't seem like Petzl sells a replacement, and if so, it looks like it will be really hard to change it. That's the reason I am taking one star.

As I like creeping around house's with the lights off the red light function is perfect for not waking up the people who live there.
The difference is summed up by the two photos of light from each headtorch being shone on a rock formation (Coach and Horses, Peak District). Easy to spot the Petzl, although it was angled downwards more than the Energizer so is not completely fair. However, the Energizer is also out of focus, and this is because it wasn't emitting enough light on the rock for my camera to focus; it focussed instantly on the Petzl, which says it all. Also, notice the white light versus the yellowy light.
I would highly recommend the Petzl for more adventurous trekking such as scaling rocks in pitch black or running in a forest at night. I would also recommend it for cycling outdoors at night - I have cycled with the Energizer, but I did sense it struggled to reflect its light off of the black tarmac road surface. It was enough, but just about enough. This Petzl should be the one for cycling at night on the road, however, as it is about 2 levels up over the Energizer.
Finally, I've only used it for 2 hours with the new Duracell batteries (3 x AAA) it comes with, so can't comment right now on battery life but will update when it starts to dim. It doesn't seem to have dimmed at all at present.
I have reported the page but that is too late for me.
The head torch is great and very bright, just disappointed in wrong description.
Update to this - we have been so impressed that nearly a year later we have bought a second one.
Definitely worth the money, highly recommended.
Update: Product photos have now been updated on Amazon to the same as the product you will receive.
Also I was very entertained and pleased to see the Morse code for SOS on the whistle. And my mum was very impressed when I make her aware it was even a whistle.
Great headtorch, much better strap than I have had on others. The red light is strong enough to hike with; for any of you who like to be covet, or appreciate the stars.
This is one of those times where the best known brand is the best for a reason.
Switching on and off was a pain as you have to cycle through the brightness modes.
