So I had to break down and purchase a headlamp that was superior to my local box store's $10.00 brand and went for this head lamp. I've got to say I'm impressed with the light. It is way brighter than anything I've experienced. There are several modes and ways to brighten/dim this headlamp which border on too complicated. I expect the settings to become second nature over time. I highly recommend this product.
Good value for a trusty little light. Every hiker should have a headlamp in the bottom of the pack. Have used in rainy fog to search for my brothers out mountain biking after dark. Have used to attach wires/cords on the back of my TV. There are simpler headlamps that weigh less, but I like the extra features and comfy headband.
I've had many headlamps in the past in which the batteries would drain super quickly. Not this bad boy. Black Diamond is an excellent company, and this headlamp is proof of it. The lamp is simple to work with one hand, which is a plus for me, and stays on my head no matter what I am or am not wearing.
I have owned 4 headlamps. My favorite was the REI 1986 model. Weighs a ton and chews up the battery but has a great beam. bought two cheap models from some big box stores and they work as a headlamp should, push a button and light comes on, they have issues. Bought the Spot based on reviews on MooseJaw and other sites. It's pretty awesome for a light you wear on your head or around your neck. The beam surpasses my REI light cannon and the unit weighs a couple of hundred pounds less. Great light.
This headlamp is extremely bright which makes it an excellent choice for the backcountry. It's fairly light weight and has proven to be a very durable piece of equipment. I have used one for two seasons of backcountry use, mostly on the AT trail and have not been disappointed. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend.
The Black Diamond Spot offers a terrific combination of bright spot light, affordable price, light weight, and great battery life. If you only want one headlamp, and don't want to spend the money or carry the extra weight for a top-of-the-line model like the Black Diamond Icon, then this is the headlamp to buy.
I have used a lot of different headlamps over many years of hiking and caving. Most of them are useful for a short time and are kind of flimsy and get damaged rather easily. This item has been an exception. The light is great and highly controllable. The features are all useful but what stands out is that this item is rugged and can withstand a lot of falls and wear and tear and the design is pretty robust to handle heavy duty adventure. So, in my opinion its reliability, robustness and of course, the quality of light are its key features which all the adventure enthusiasts will benefit from.
