Frenchman Ferdinand Petzl was an adventurous 17 year old when he first started caving. The mechanic in him created the first headlamp designed for mountaineers. The Petzl Duo headlamp still leads the way: you can have LED head torch, with a halogen back up, for greatest light and safety.
Since those early days in the 1960s, Petzl has become synonymous with climbing and head torches. Our Petzl LED head torches are used by climbers, mountaineers, and fall arrest professionals (eg rescuer workwear, or working at heights professionals in construction or windfarms, mobile masts etc).
For safety within confined spaces, we also have the Petzl AtEx LED head torch. For the speleologists amongst you, or just even those of you who need to walk over icey ground, we stock Petzl Spiky Plus spiky crampons for ice. They go over your shoes or boots: they give you grip in slippy, icy conditions.
