A great ultralight backup light, the new Ion Light by Black Diamond is small enough to stash just about anywhere, plus the reflector-housed, 1/2 watt LED casts a far-reaching beam for finding your way up that final pitch of 5.11 or down that last mile back to the trailhead. Our lightest headlamp at 30 grams (1 oz), the Ion has a pivoting head that angles the light anywhere you need it, and a replaceable 6-volt battery provides power for 15 hours at the low setting and 3 hours on high. Yes, the Ion is unnoticeable in size and weight, but don't let its diminutive size fool you-this two-setting headlamp is Black-Diamond-tough, able to withstand apocalyptic levels rain and sleet.

My several ION lights have been used at sea level on a QE II crossing or Mt. Hotel,CO. Great Light!My only thing with this light is the power source. Stock up on the batteries if you are heading out in the back forty, thirty, or just taking a long road trip. ,,,,I wear one around my neck on evening dog walks, fixing the car, and just to have a quick light source (or PLD: personal lighting device),first thing at a new camp site.,,,,As soon as I'm finished serving another military tour in the UK, I'm back to Colorado for some high altitude fun with my Flatcoats. The ION will serve me well back home again.,,,,You can't go wrong having this little workhorse near you when in the darkness and need of fast enlightenment.,,,,Cheerio!,,,,Keith H.

Great little light for tent or for around the campfire but not hike in 4 or 5 milesI have had this light since the summer and have taken it on short weekend trips. It seemed to be okay in the summer when we had plenty of day light but as the winter has come on when getting to camp and trying to set up at nearly dark or after and then to have to cook supper with the light it is just not enough. The batteries can be hard to find I have also found. Pros it does seem to waterproof and it is very lightweight. I would not carry as only source of light in winter.

Small, light, and bright.I have found this headlamp to be very helpful in seeing in the dark. It even works really well if you simply hang it around your neck as it is adjustable so you can point it wherever you want and won't have to worry about blinding anyone else when you talk to them the light will not be positioned above your eyes. It is small enough to fit in any pocket and light enough to hardly notice. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wishing to see in the dark.

Decent, but there are other optionsDecent camp light, but I have come to prefer the Petzl E+lite for its bombproof switch, additional red l.e.d. and easy to adjust strap. This light falls short of those added features. This light has been gifted to my young nephew (he loves it.) I do like the swivel on the Ion, simple and effective, without being too 'floppy.',,,,

Best Lightweight Head Lamp on the Market!I purchased this light in an effort to reduce weight in my pack (every ounce counts). Even though the light is incredibly light it is very strong, In the Grand Canyon I was able to light up entire mountain backdrops while my buddy's more traditional headlamp could not. Definitely a great purchase!
