[at-l] Headlight

The zipka is interesting with the retractable cords.  Are those fragile or easy to break?  Looks like it would be a pain if they did.

  Nice looking headlamp. Uses AAA batteries, which in my humble opinion is better than little coin cells or camera batteries. The latest version of the Zipka is similar, with a main white light and a smaller red light. I have the previous two versions of the Zipka and like it. 

  It's easy to find a really bright headlamp, but some of those aren't very useful when I try to read inside my tent at night. Too bright. Little lights for reading are great, but then I have a hard time using them for hiking at night. Having both lights in one headlamp is cool.

    Anyone have experience with the Princeton Tec Remix Headlamp (here's the REI URL: http://www.rei.com/product/804211).  Options for the close-up mode light are white, red or green.  I've heard of the red option but never green.  Anyone ever use a green camp light?
