    Hey guys,
    I wanted to show you two ideas what can be done with headlamps except for using them on your head.

    1. Attached to a watch as a wristlight:

    2. As a interior lighting for the pockets of your pants:

    Have you other good or crazy ideas what can be done with them?

    Was watching "one car too far" (do you get that where you are?) on discovery the other day and one of the guys was wearing his petzl around his neck. Looked a bit uncomfortable to me but he persisted for the duration of the show...

    I sometimes wear a headlamp around my neck when I am wearing a hat. It is comfortable because the head band fits loosely around the neck.

    While wearing the headlamp around the neck is comfortable, the light is not aimed in the same direction you look when you turn your head.

    ^I'm doing it sometimes too. The head band isn't tight, so no need to worry. Did this mostly during our tour when going to the bathroom. Sometimes I use my headlamp for lighting up my room, but it'll be replaced by a Zebralight floody :D

    I sometimes clip a ZL to my belt or the penloop on my Skinth, or sometimes the shoulder strap on my backpacks.
    Works pretty well for hands-free lighting.

    My ZL sometimes gets clipped around my collar or between shirt buttons for short duration hands free. I keep the strap in my bag for longer work.

    My girl used my Petzl to read a book on a recent raod trip. She had it mounted on the head rest pointed down towards her. Worked great according to her!
