    Thought Id post up my thoughts on my latest purchase,maybe it might come in handy for some of you..
    After having two or three cheap Argos type headtorches and having them all die on me within a year or two (and realised I needed a better one for this hobby) I started researching. Everyone knows Petzl make good kit but the competition has really caught up-I stuck with them because of their reputation/warrenty/spares back up etc. After reading a few reviews I was going to buy the MYO model which is really rated,ended up with the MYO RXP (which is the same thing but you can regulate the outputs more and is slightly brighter,) because I found it at the same price.

    Sensible size and very comfy,the whole light part swivels back into the casing for travel,so it cant accidentally be switched on.

    The power is changeable from 8 to 205 lumens! Obviously the brighter it is the less battery life but believe me,on full this thing is incredible. walking through woods etc in the dark a medium setting is more than enough.At full power it lights the way for 90 meteres,8 lumen is plenty for pottering round a tent/reading etc although having the battery pack at the back of your head might give btter balance it does mean you cant lie down with your head on a pillow and read.The defuser really works,changes from a spotlight to a wider,softer beam.

    Second pic shows the flip down diffuser in front of the light (in the down position.)

    So,nicely made,waterproof,light,battery level indicator,good back-up and as good as anything else out there,i love it.
    'Blacks' and 'Go-Outdoors' have a sale on at the moment but the cheapest I found was on Ebay-item number 261580604974,seller 2011dorty1,PPR is £65 but hes selling them for £38 + p&p.
    Hope this helps someone out,cheers.

    Awesome little headtorch, although it eats batteries. I probably get 5 or 6 hours out of it before having to change them, which isn't actually that bad I guess. I don't actually use it on the full beam as a couple of brightness settings down is sufficient, and saves a bit of juice.

    Got mine for around the £35/40 mark and don't regret it.
