    All around good headlamp for backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My two big must haves were lockout button, so battery wouldn’t accidentally drain in backpack, and red light feature to not be obnoxious to companions. This headlamp has enough power to enable you to see to navigate in total darkness, has tiltable lamp feature and is relatively lightweight. No regrets!!

    Works Well

      I chose the Spot model over the Storm because it uses less batteries and weighs less on the head. I am really happy with the product quality and the amount of light it produces. I feel like this headlamp will last years where other cheaper models will not last nearly as long.

      Quality headlamp

        I bought this for backpacking and night riding, and I’m definitely satisfied with the quality. While many headlamps weigh your head down, the BD spot is super lightweight, and very bright. It has been very battery efficient for long night hikes in the Wasatch, and the strap is really intuitive and easy to fit to your head. I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a solid reliable light source for any late night adventures.

        Not all that intuitive

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

        This light has a lot of features but the controls are not intuitive. There's various taps and lengths of holds to cycle through settings. I made the mistake of not taking the instructions the first time I brought it out - it was a little frustrating attempting to figure it out. I also see the green egg/yellow center other reviews mention while indoors and it's pretty distracting. Overall, a decent light at the price point, but if I were buying again, I would pay a little extra and upgrade to something else.

        This is my third Spot-best one yet

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I like all the new features--memory of last setting, lock switch mode, variable brightness adjustment, etc. One question mark. The spot beam has a yellow center circle. Seems to be fine outdoors but a little annoying when using the light indoors. I don't see this as a big problem, and I'll see how it goes with more use. I asked BD about it and they said it's cooler on the led and easier on the eyes.

        Mark,
        Thanks for your feedback, glad you are satisfied with your purchase!
        Yeah I own this headlamp and love it, but have not used it indoors. Let me know if you have any other specific questions regarding this lamp or any other products.
        Thanks!

        my 3rd version of this light

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

        This is a durable and dependable light. When you get used to the switch pattern it's easy to use. The new memory feature that remembers the last setting is a big improvement. One Issue is the spotlight has a yellow tinted circle of light in the middle. I called BD and they explained that this is intentional because it puts less strain on the eyes and keeps the light cooler than a full on white light. Outdoors this seems ok, but so far indoors it's too pronounced and annoying. I hope I'll get used to it--but that's why 4 stars instead of 5.

        Bright.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        How did they capture the sun in such a tiny plastic box? Night time is now daytime at the click of a button. Caution: just make sure your friend uses proper etiquette when facing you to tell you something.

        Bright Baby!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I've actually had this lamp before, it was gifted to me by a BD rep when I first started working at Backcountry.com. Unfortunately it suffered an attack from a pup and broke the bulb inside. Bought the green one as my replacement and it's just as great as I remembered. Extremely bright and super user friendly!

        comfortable, light, bright

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Great head lamp for all around outdoor use. It has alot of features that have a bit of learning curve but once you become familiar with the product its like second nature.

        Great headlamp!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I love using this headlamp for dawn patrols, camping, hiking and for all other activities at night! I really like all of the settings and it is brighter than I was expecting!

        Green egg in middle

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

        This headlight is great for lighting up a trail or for working Outdoors. If you are viewing something up close, or trying to read though, the green circle in the center of your viewing area will be distracting. Even my six-year-old son pointed it out. I called Black Diamond and they informed me that this is normal. I will be returning this and purchasing a different brand.

        Bright, feature rich but battery drainer

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Super bright headlamp. Feels like a lot more than 300 lumens especially navigating trails in the pitch black of night. Has a lot of features that, frankly, I don’t use like strobe and red light. It’s nice to have those added features, but it does make this headlamp more complicated. The touch side is kinda gimmicky. Not a fan. I’d rather just have more buttons to be honest. The headband also comes loose very frequently. I had to mark down my preferred measurement with a sharpie to quickly readjust whenever putting it back on. Thinking of sewing it so it stays put. The batteries also don’t last very long. Much less than advertised, or perhaps that’s because it goes to the red low battery warning way too quickly. I considered buying the rechargeable version Revolt headlamp, but for the price, this headlamp is pretty solid. Super lightweight and compact which is what I was after in the first place. If you don’t need all that functionality, look at the cheaper versions of Black Diamond headlamps like the Astro.

        BRIGHT!

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        This little lamp packs some bright light! I sent this bad boy to my dad after he told me he didnt have a headlamp. He starts work at 4am some days, when it is definitely still dark out, and I couldnt believe he hadn't bought himself one yet. He called me the other day after getting it and was HYPED! I dont think he will work another day without it!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This Lamp is great. I was very surprised by how bright it was. Does a great job in poor conditions as well. I dropped it deep in a river and it worked great after! No worries at all besides that I feel it runs out of juice quickly. Great choice for night hike, camping or a solid climbing session.
