Petzl Ultra Rush Belt Headlamp is a model from the series of specialized headlamps, based on constant lighting technology, and with powerful uniform lighting up to 760 lumens.
The constant lighting implies that the brightness doesn’t diminish for the entire burn time because the lamp switches to reserve mode when the battery is almost drained.
This is a modified version of the model Ultra Rush.
- My rate: 8.9/10
- Guarantee: 3 years for the lamp, 1 year (or 300 charging cycles) for the rechargeable battery.

Similar to Petzl Ultra Rush model, this is a constant lighting technology, with 4 possible modes: minimum (up to 73 hours burn time), economic (up to 14 hours), optimum (up to 10 hours), and maximum (up to 4 hours).
So this model has double burn time in almost all modes, as compared to Petzl Ultra Rush model (designed as a completely head-lamp), which has the following burn times: 38, 7, 5, 2 hours. Compare the prices: the present belt model $500 and Petzl Ultra Rush $430. So the belt model is a better option.
