Petzl SWIFT RL vs OLight H2R NOVA Cool Headlamps

Our two favorite ultra-lightweight headlamps go head-to-head to see which one is right for the activities you’ll be doing in 2020.

Petzl SWIFT RL vs OLight H2R NOVA Cool headlamp comparisons.
Both are ultralight headlamps with strong brightness. The H2R NOVA is heavily protected from water, and the SWIFT RL has battery saving Reactive Lighting Technology. See which is right for you.

The Petzl SWIFT RL is the newest headlamp out of Petzl, the company who started the headlamp revolution back in the 1970’s. We love the weight, powerful 900 lumens potential, and the ultra-long battery life. Oh, and the price is just right at less than $120.

The OLight H2R is a Chinese made headlamp that was our #1 headlamp last year and makes a strong showing this year again. Cool features include very strong magnets in the base for sticking it somewhere and holding it up. The H2R Nova has a 2,300 lumen burst that is blinding and a great security feature. Compare on other criteria below and choose one – you’ll love either one, we’re sure of it.
