Lights for cavers and cave rescuers should be bright, long lasting, and light weight. Petzl has long been recognized as the worlds leading designer of caving headlamps, lights and rescuer light needs. We feature a variety of top quality Petzl headlamps, cave lights and emergency light sources. cavers should always carry at lest three sources of light, each with back up power supplies. When the lights go out and your deep underground, you'll be wishing you had another Petzl headlamp tucked away.
Caves are one of least explored ecosystems on the planet. Each year about 100 miles of new caves are discovered and mapped. Many cave features and formations are still a mystery as to their formation. Cave rescuers have one of the most difficult jobs in the world. A typical cave rescue may take 6 - 24 hours to remove an injured speluker from the cave environment.
