What do you really want out of a headlamp? Long Battery Life, rugged durability, dependable brilliance, portability…all of these adjectives are words - and they are ALSO words that describe the gizmo. Don't over think your headlamp - don't spend a fortune…buy this headlamp and check it off of your "Camping Essentials" checklist.
This is my second purchase of Black Diamond Headlamps and this time I got two. Me and a few friends are going to be doing a trail race that will end in the dark. I went with this head lamp because of it's great durability and awesome brightness. I have had other normal use headlamps and they do not compare to Black Diamond.

This is the cheapest headlamp I've ever owned but definitely the best. It's super lightweight, not amazingly bright but does the job, and for $16 who gives a rats azz if you lose it? Petzl headlamps tend to have issues with there circuit boards, and the battery door/lids tend to break. Princeton Tech headlamps are the best in terms of ergonomics, but I've found they will break pretty easily.
When I first received this headlamp it seems kinda cheap, but over time I have realized that it perfect for the job. It is very small and lightweight making it perfect for backpacking. It is very bright and you cannot even notice you are wearing it after a while. I like how it is basic, it has one button that turns on the light and thats all you need. I would definitely buy it again.
our family buys and uses head lamps like crazy and they make great gifts. our experience with black diamond has been outstanding. and honestly i prefer the lesser dollar ones of the the big buck ones... less to be upset about if one should fail...
My wife bought me this for Christmas and Im so glad she did! It works awesome! I even used it to read with when the power was out this winter! Great light output and comfy on your head! Highly recommend!
Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend since he got me one a few years ago and always feels that he's missing out when I have mine and he's without... he says it fits comfortably, works well, and he likes the streamlined look of it.
"A simple, inexpensive light that everyone should own!"
A solid product from the good folks at Black Diamond. A great value for anyone looking for a basic, no-frills headlamp. Great for everything from trail running to packing up the car in the wee hours before heading north to ski. BONUS - BD even includes the 2 batteries that this lamp requires - you can fire it up right out of the box!
"This headlamp is all you need for a simple hike or camping trip."
This lamp is actually a lot nicer than I thought it would be. It comes with the batteries, which is always a plus. It also dims and has a strobe light. The dimming feature is fancier than I expected; it works by just holding down the button, and the lamp will slowly dim, giving you a big range of lighting options. The brightest level is bright enough for me, and the fact that you can adjust the position of the lamp is also pretty darn nice.
I am on my second gizmo because the first one stopped working 3 years in. I would say that this is a drawback, but I gave black diamond a call and they sent me a brand new one free of charge even though my warranty was expired! Black diamond works great with you and this is a bright light that you can pack just about anywhere! Good luck!
