Use this headlamp instead of holding a flashlight while you assemble your tent. Or use it at home for a reading light. The Tikka headlamp by Petzl has a stretchy headband with a 2-inch light lit by three LED bulbs. Three AAA batteries will keep it running 150 hours. At 21/2 ounces, it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Get the headlamp for $38.95 at Adventure Outfitters, 4315 El Prado Blvd., 832-6669.
