With much outdoor kit, technical user demands often boil down to one essential requirement: maximum performance for minimum weight. The Swift RL has been meticulously engineered with just this in mind. The result is a headlamp capable of putting out a dazzling 900 lumens of brightness, in a compact package that weighs just 100g. This makes it the most powerful of all Petzl’s compact headlamps, and the ideal choice for the most rigorous outdoor users on challenging fast and light missions. This lamp is also equipped with reactive lighting technology, which senses ambient light in your environment and automatically adjusts the beam brightness accordingly. Meanwhile, the Swift RL’s two-part construction provides excellent stability in dynamic and intense activities from mountaineering to trail running. The intuitive single button offers easy control of all lamp functions. It is rechargeable too, with a five-level gauge for precise monitoring of the remaining battery charge

Supports Eco Initiatives - The Petzl Foundation supports non-profit organizations whose role is to discover and protect biodiversity on cliffs, in caves and in mountain ranges
As a brand, Petzl was born in the darkness. Their story began with founder Fernand Petzl’s passion for caving, back in the mid-1930s. Out of that passion, Petzl started to design innovative solutions for ascending, descending, belaying and moving about underground. This included pioneering headlamps and rope safety equipment. But alpinists soon discovered that what worked below the earth also worked above it, and Petzl kit was quickly co-opted by climbers, mountaineers and skiers.
Today, Petzl remains one of the leading technical brands in all these fields, still devoted to one mission: to access the inaccessible. The product range is split into two core categories: lighting – which includes some of the world’s most advanced head torches; and verticality – highly technical equipment designed for those venturing into the world’s loftiest mountain ranges as well as the globe’s deepest, darkest places.
