Spot 325 Headlamp

The award-winning Spot 325 Headlamp is back, redesigned with a lower, lighter, and even brighter profile. Black Diamond updated the user interface to include a second switch for fuss-free lens mode selection, which allows you to switch easily between proximity and distance lighting, or change to strobe or red night-vision. Peripheral lighting comes in handy for close-range activities at camp, and if you turn the headlamp off at any point, Brightness Memory keeps track of your last used setting so you don't have to fiddle with the headlamp each time.

  • A solid headlamp for lighting up the trail before you
  • Waterproof construction ready for all-weather adventuring
  • Multi-faceted optical lens enhances illumination to save battery
  • Secondary switch provides easy operation between light modes
  • Lighting on housing indicates remaining battery life
  • Item #BLD00Y1

Decent light

I've used it several times

The light output of this headlamp is great, and I like having all the different modes. The controls are not super intuitive and take a while to figure out. I was disappointed in the quality of the headband, mine deteriorated quickly with fraying at the plastic parts and snagging on things. The clear plastic over the light is not very durable, it scuffs and scratches super easily. For the price point, it is good, but don't expect it to last forever.

Defective Product

Bought two for an upcoming trip. One was defective out of the box. Contacted customer service (BD) and they immediately said they would replace it. Been over a week and still no replacement and I'm about to leave on my trip. Poor quality control and customer service. Very disappointing as I have been a big advocate for BD.

Almost Perfect

I've used it several times

It locks, 2 white lights and a red light, varying intensity. Less likely to get accidentally switched on in your bag, and then drain the battery down so that when you actually need it you have a dead battery (happened with a previous BD headlamp. Dumb design). Only reason that it isn't 5 star--- The dumb battery indicator lights. The whole point of using a red light is to save your night vision, and every time you turn the lamp off, the battery indicator lights shine bright blue, and destroys your night vision. I really don't like those lights. Will tape over. Make the indicators a separate switch or something.

I've used it several times

The Black Diamond spot is the perfect head lamp. It puts out intense light. It is a slim and attractive lamp that will put in the work to help you see on those middle of the night bathroom runs. The red light is an awesome feature that I surprisingly us a lot. If you are in the market this is one of the best options.

Great lamp

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

This is a really great headlamp. I love the customizable brightness and ability to have the normal beam, a flood light, and red night light.

Bright and Light

I've put it through the wringer

The title says it all. Some people say that all headlamps are the same. Those people are wrong. And this new spot is overall the best combination of weight, brightness, and battery life. If you're looking for a good all around headlamp, then look no further.

NEW Spot 325 Headlamp

I've put it through the wringer

- 17% Smaller in total volume than original Spot Headlamp - 11% Thinner than original Spot Heaadlamp - Six setting battery meter - Two switch user interface with digital lock out to keep the light from turning on in your pack or pocket - Perforated Moisture Wicking Band


The last Spot model had an extremely annoying yellow spot in the middle of the beam. Does the new model have the same issue?

Yeah they still do unfortunately, it has to do with the reflector in the middle of the headlamp themselves making the source bright and higher lumens.
