The MYO 3 is suitable for users who need the advantages of both a bright, long range beam and efficient LED lighting. Ideal for all outdoor sports enthusiasts. The MYO 3 offers the option of switching on the fly between a xenon halogen bulb option and a 3 L.E.D. bulb option.

Full specifications can be found on the Petzl product page or on the REI product page.

I have been using my MYO 3 for about a year and a half and find it very useful. It is light enough to take on about any trip and provides the option of using the 3 L.E.D. bulb option around camp or on well groomed trails and switching to the xenon halogen bulb option for harder to follow trails and off-trail route finding.

On one particular trip I'm not sure how long it would have taken to find my destination without the halogen option. I spotted the treeline shelter I was looking for from several hundred feet with the halgen bulb. Highly recommended for those who want flexibility but don't want to haul a large battery pack around.

This is a nice light I have enjoyed it for a few years and eventhoe i use other lights i still think that this is top's. only draw back is it will go out instantly. I do a lot of night climbing and had it go out at the wrong time once.I wascrossing a waterfall on slipery rocks at night and 1/2 accrost the light went out. So be cautious. This is a commen problem with almost all head lamps.

...my MYO 3 seems still new. I used it in many different situations and it worked fine. A good product indeed.
