Any chance of adding a black RGB? Don’t like the current color choices. I have an RGB now and I love buts it’s old and needs replacing.

Do these HLs have lock switches on them to keep them from accidentally being turned on while packed? That's absolutely a deal breaker for me.

So can someone tell me why RGB headlights and flashlights are a thing? I understand red being helpful at night for preserving night vision, but not sure I see where the others come in except if you can mix them or something.

Unfortunately you need different colours so you do not miss "same colour" lines when you are reading maps.

I have the tactikka+. A decent headlamp, I guess. This fell out of my side pocket on a 4 day hike. It rained for two days. On my return i found it and picked it up thinking it would be dead, but it survived and still works perfectly. However, I really dislike the beam pattern on this though. The lens over the light has groove channels across it that diffuses the light in a more proximity type beam pattern (See attached photo). You can't focus this light for distance. Great for proximity lighting around camp, terribly terrible shitty-shit-shit for night hiking/navigating. The far superior Black Diamond ReVolt is my go-to lamp now. I keep my tactikka+ to lend to non-hiking friends who accompany me sometimes.

I recently had a poor experience with Petzl after my 2 year old Tikka died this summer. I contacted customer service to explain what was wrong and that I would like to submit the defective headlamp for coverage under the 3 year Petzl warranty. At that point I was informed that the 3 year warranty is based on manufacture date, not the date of purchase. So while I have had the light for only 2 years, it was actually made a little more than 3 years ago which meant Petzl would no longer cover it under their warranty. Pretty sleazy, I think.

yet another reason to not use Petzl products. Go for Black Diamond. Superior in every aspect.

Just a little info for anyone considering these: the Tactikka+ has a very poor beam pattern. There are a lot of bright spots and inconsistencies. The non-plus Tactikka looks like it has a very similar lens arrangement to the standard Tikka, which does not have the beam quality problems that the Tactikka+ has. So if you care about light quality, the Tactikka might be a better choice, instead of the supposedly better Tactikka+.

It's funny you mentioned that. I just had my Tactikka+ out last week on its inaugural trip; a 4 day backpacking trip around the Bay of Fundy. I immediately noticed my friends headlamp had a much nicer beam quality. I switched out the batteries to see if that was the issue and it did appear brighter but there was still something different about it. Seems to be a wider angled light dispersion, which can be good in some situations, but also can make things directly in front of you less illuminated.

What are some benefits to RGB lighting in the outdoors?

gnarledcoulee is correct about the red light. I don't know about the blue, but green is typically used in a night setting where you want bright light and preserve night vision/stealth. The human eye (for whatever reason) picks up on green light better than red. So say you have a 200 lumen red and 200 lumen green, the green would look brighter to the eye even though it's at the same lumen and I've heard it doesn't spook the wild life like a white light does. If anyone knows more, feel free to correct me.

Red and green as mentioned by others help preserve night vision / avoiding blinding companions around camp. Blue especially on lower power output can serve a similar function, but it is primarily used when you have to read a map, it is easier to read under blue light than red or green - they cast black lines in stark relief against white paper.
Additionally, some hunters like blue lights because it can help a blood trail stand out from foliage.

I always see Pretzl when I see this company. Always.
