  One caveat for the zipka.  If you have as big a head as mine, it's just too tight.  As it hurts after a while.  If you've of the smaller headed variety, it should work fine.

  I've always loved my zipka, and have never had a problem with the cord breaking.  I love the retractable cord because I like to loop it around the ridgeline in my hammock and use it as an overhead light. 

  I didn't know there was a new version of it.  I really don't need new gear this year . . . so maybe a new headlight wouldn't be too much to spend?  I'd like one with two settings.

  When not hiking, I leave the zipka in the glove compartment of my car.  VERY handy when changing a flat tire in the dark (and yes, I've actually used it that way)

    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.
