      Unfortunately, I'm not blessed with great night vision, so I like a
      nice bright light. I use a modified Petzl Zoom headlamp; I removed
      the battery case from the headband and attached an extension cord.
      The battery case goes in my pack and I carry the headlamp in my hand.
      The flat 4.5V battery lasts 8 hours with a halogen bulb. Light to
      carry, and if I'm fiddling in my pack I just stick it on my head. The
      Petzl Arctic has the separate battery case when you buy it.

      As backups I carry a Princeton Tec 4AA (which failed last year due to
      a manufacturing defect) and a 1AA maglight.

      Though the trail markers seem pretty close together during the day,
      they can be hard to see at night. Take plenty of lumens.
