Petzl Myo 3 Headtorch

Posted on December 3, 2005 in ClimbingKilimanjaroEquipmentSport

I just received the headtorch that I’m going to be using on the night we summit Kilimanjaro. I decided to go for the Petzl Myo 3 which I bought from Field and Trek. It’s beam can extend to 100m which is pretty impressive.

Product Features

Enjoy the convenience of two torches in one. The Myo 3 combines a bright Xenon bulb for a clear beam and 3 LED’s for energy saving close proximity use.

  • The lamp can be tilted to alter the beam angle whilst the adjustable headbands give a comfortable fit for long term wear.
  • Spare Xenon bulb is included in secure holder.
  • Uses 4x AA batteries (Included).

Xenon = 4; LED = 180 hrs (continuous use)

Interested to see how effectively this works on Kilimanjaro, it does take quite a few batteries so I’ll have to take a plentiful supply of Lithium batteries when I go up. I also came across this really good review of the Myo 3 and 5 at
