Petzl Nao+ Plus Headlamp 16 Month Review

Petzl NAO PLUS (+) Headlamp Review after 16 Months of Use!

The Petzl NAO PLUS from 2016 with 750 lumens of brightness, BlueTooth, Reactive Lighting Technology, and other features was one of the most expensive things I’d bought in a long time, outside of my computer and cameras. Buying the NAO+ PLUS headlamp was a bit of a test to see – would I enjoy a $200 headlamp? Could I?

As it turns out, the Petzl NAO PLUS is a fantastic headlamp, and one that I will keep for years. The light is perfect for SO MANY different use scenarios, that it doesn’t make sense not to keep it. The headlamp looks the same today as it did 16 months ago when I pulled it new out of the package.

The Nao Plus is perfect for people who want to use it for: Running; Camping; Fishing; Hiking; Tent Use; Working on autos; Around the house use; bicycling on the road, or on mild trails. Skiing slowly. It’s even great for what I use my headlamps for – herping for reptiles at night in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia.

Are Petzl Headlamps Worth It?

in 2017 we sold hundreds of these NAO+ PLUS headlamps. Here’s our review page with links to buy it today –

Here is an upgrade, at more than double the price, less features, but it might even fit your needs better –

Here is a new headlamp – the DUO S – which Petzl is releasing any day now. We have a pre-review here, and the headlamp is on the way through DHL right now! Super excited… oh, and this one is more expensive still – but the best that I’ve ever heard about –
