Excellent review. I use a zebralight as my backup (main is a custom duo on a light that came with my explorer helment). I was able to mount the zebralight on the holes of the carbide lamp. Your observations are the same as mine. The light has a generally good beam pattern but it can go through a battery quite quickly. A member of our caving group has experienced buying a defective light, and it’s a pain in the ass to replace (all the way from Asia!). It’s a solid light for caving though when it’s working.

Can you also do a review of Scurions, Rude Noras and maybe some footwear?

Hmm.. dual setup. Intradasting. Nothing unusual about carrying more than one light, but two of the same model with different beams is pretty cool and functional as you mentioned.

Does the 120 degree feature a frosted lens?

Thanks for another honest and accurate review. I’ve also experienced a Zebralight failure, but after 8 years of consistent use, I can confidently say that Zebralights are unquestionably cave-worthy, and I will continue to use it until ultimate failure.

Another excellent lighting option would be the 18650 Armytek lights. In comparison to Zebralights, they are more rugged due to a thicker aluminum housing, the UI is far less complicated, they are cheaper, I personally like the optics more, they consistently beat Zebralight to the punch with the latest LED tech, and they come with 10 times the warranty. Armytek also has a very nifty magnetic charging accessory which avoids the need to open the tailcap as part of the recharging process.
