First, the Petzls are more difficult to operate than the LIM. There's two buttons instead of one and the buttons are smaller and don't work as decisively as my LIM. Half the time with the Petzl, I have to take the headlamp off my head to turn the darn thing off. Before I bought an LIM, I thought the Petzls were great. Now I know better.
To be fair, the LIM is much brighter (250 lumens vs. only 120 for the Tikka R+ - with constant output, not the "reactive" mode). So I can see much better with the LIM. And the LIM has a bigger, separate battery mounted on the back of the head strap. Both headlamps charge with USB.
What I like about the Petzl Tikka R+ is the removable battery. The LIM does not have an easy way to replace the battery. So when the battery fails, I will have to buy another, or send it to LIM. This is a big plus for the Petzl.
The LIM has a unique design that fits under your hood, if you are wearing one. The little LIM light pokes out from under the hood perfectly, which is really cool. The Petzl can be worn under a hood, but does not fit quite as well due to the larger size of the light/battery combo on the front of the headlamp.
Going to update this review as I have time to actually test it on a coming 3 day expedition.
This headlamp is very easy to use. The reactive lighting setting is great, as the light brightens when when you get in darker areas, and when you get into bright areas, the light dims.
The strap itself is quite comfortable, but I would suggest wearing a cap or something if wearing it for a long period. The frame for the light itself begin to get a little uncomfortable after long periods of wearing it (over 1 hr). I sometimes wear a skull cap underneath, to keep it from feeling like it is rubbing on my forehead when I run. The light is adjustable so you can point it down very close to your body, or far away.
The rechargeable battery is nice as you don't have to worry about buying batteries. I have not had any issues with running out of power.
Great product, good quality.
