Description

See through the dark and gnarly.

Moonless nights and torrential thunderstorms make for spectacular photos, but they also mean you're out in the elements when it's pitch-black and Biblically wet. See your camera settings and then some with the Black Diamond Storm Headlamp. Complete redesigned, this feather-light headlamp puts the lighting level controls at your fingertip. PowerTap technology lets you dim the lights when the mood is right, or fully illuminate the situation, all with only your fingertip. Two red LED lights give you owl-like night vision. A lock mode lets you pack this lamp without burning through your batteries before you've left the house, and the strobe option turns your campsite into a rocking disco. Weighing in at 3.88 ounces, this rugged headlamp provides high-power lighting in a tougher-than-steel package.

Great for night swimming

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Took this beast swimming and afterwords I realized it was a saltwater pool. The headlamp didn't miss a beat, later the bulb over the shower stopped working and this headlamp got put to use again. Says on package don't expose to saltwater and while I don't reccomend it, it did no harm to mine.

Buy it already!

One thing to add to my pictures.

When you select the main beam. You're only getting 70% power until you hit that "PowerTap" function to boost it to 100%. believe me, 70% is very bright. More than enough to work with. Very comfortable, and orange is great color for bringing into the woods. Easier to find.
The button on the top is a bit stiff. But i'd rather have it stiff than soft and flimsy. It doesn't really allow for you to accidentally turn on the light. There's even that lock function I mentioned in the pictures if you're worried about turning it on by mistake.

Part of the strap tension piece has been cleverly designed to be used like a screwdriver to unscrew the metal screw holding the backplate on to a water-resistant status.

Lock function so it doesn't turn itself on in a back.

Think "iPhone" capacitive touch.
I've heard others have even used this function with wet gloves on.
All three light options (main, flood, red) are dimmable. so, no matter where you're at in the strength of your light, tap this once and it'll boost it to 100% power. tap again and goes back to what you originally had the dim set to. great for that moment when you thought you placed something next to you and it's not there....
"$hit!! Where's my *tap* knife!....Oh there it is!! *tap* [ keeps working]"

Probably my most used function when working around a campsite.
Has a great amount of spill.

red, dimmable. Great for preserving night vision when it's pitch black outside. This gets so low that you could wear it, place a book 5 or 6 inches from your face and it doesn't flood everywhere.

Outstanding.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A great light for the price. The spot is super bright and illuminates everything in your path and more. The adjustable brightness in both of the main modes is great, and the red comes in handy around camp. Has a lock feature so it doesnt accidentally turn on in your pack, and also has a batter power indicator. Some awesome features combined to make an outstanding light.

Another bomber BD lamp

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Well, Black Diamond's done it again. The upgraded Storm headlamp is built solid and takes abuse. A few key differences from the previous version:
-battery indicator is on the opposite side
-button commands are slightly different

The Storm is ideal for less "head-bobbing" activities. Since it requires four AAA (vs. the Spot's three) it's slightly heavier. I find the Spot is great for trail running and general camping. The Storm excels with night ski touring and water sports. It's my go to when trekking and skiing.

I've now amassed 4 BD lamps (Spot & Storm) over the past three years. All have been excellent quality. All are still in use.

great so far

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

this has so many features, and yet seems so useable and light. it requires a few batteries, and honestly could seem a bit brighter at 100 lumens
i use it for all my pack trips and any for any hike i might be out late

great so far
