My only real complaints are that there is no external charging port; you need to open the light and remove the battery to charge it. This leads to my other negative which is how cheap the plastic feels. I worry about breaking the light every time I pop it open to charge the battery.
Another reviewer said the button was awful and had a soft/squishiness to it with no clear/firm "button" feel to it. Again, I think this could be a defective unit, because I know the frustrating sensation this reviewer is referring to. It's definitely rubber/soft cover, but the centered button is very clearly defined, easy to push and have the unit register the push, and firm/responsive...
Another user said the settings were complicated. This person may just be thick, or it could be another defective unit. You press the button for 3 different brightness levels, or hold it down for red mode. Pretty straight-forward, 10 second learning curve.
This headlamp is lightweight, feels secure and relatively comfortable, and I love that it is both rechargeable AND you can use regular AAAs in a pinch. The brightest setting is more than most hikers/campers will need for most uses, and the second brightest is plenty to see the immediate area around you for longer battery life. The lowest setting is good for preserving the most battery life and doing things like going to the bathroom, reading, fixing/rigging something, or other activities that are closer to your eyes and less demanding on light.
My only gripe with this headlamp is that there is no charge port accessible from the unit–you have to remove the batteries to charge them. It would have been nice to be able to run a USB cable to a battery pack when using this as a lantern in a tent, or in a pinch while hiking/at camp... instead of having to use separate AAAs. That could make it less water resistant, but smartphone companies have figured out how to provide both so this should be able to as well. I'd pay more money for that feature.
Petzl is an extremely established company, so that gives me comfort knowing I can reach out to them for support in the future. In theory, they would be helpful, but I haven't had experience with that yet.
I also wish products like this had a more "modern" aesthetic, by which I really mean "vintage/classic." The plastic feels...plastic, the "TACTIKKA CORE" text is boring and ugly, the branding is in your face, etc. The black color is very..."tactical / tech" and boring. I'm a sucker for the hipster aesthetic with classic materials like leathers, metals, or higher quality matte plastics, and more earthy colors. I think most hikers are... I don't know why the industry has leaned into the tech aesthetic for so long. If a headlamp company filled that niche, I'd buy right away if it was as simple, comfortable, and high-quality as this Petzl. Until then, this will do.
Other than this, it is a top of the line headlight.

Ottima visuale anche laddove non c'è alcuna fonte di luce.
Spesso non necessita neanche della massima potenza, il livello 2 è sufficiente.
Il livello 3 lo uso per il trail running, percorsi boschivi e simili.
Molto comoda anche la funzione della luce rossa fissa o lampeggiante che fa comodo per segnalare la propria presenza su strada.
