Bought this headlamp over a year ago and still loving it. Still haven't had to change the batteries. The red light feature is my fav part because I'm always checking up on the kids at night and it's wonderful to not wake them up. And lemme tell you, it makes me a super great tooth fairy! Also, it's great for helping my husband fix stuff under the house and I can dim the brightness when he yells that I am blinding him when I look at him. Oh and it has a swivel option so I learned how to direct the light right on the busted water pipe. Also it is good for camping - I think I have to say that... Totally recommend!
"Sturdy, bright and multiple light settings- a must buy"
I bought this back in September before a big trip because I was tired of carrying around a LED flash light. Since I had limited money to spend this seemed like the best deal. It has multiple light settings: red light, spotlight, beam and can even set it to intermittent flashing. Handy if you have broken both your legs are are being eaten by bear or bears. Unlike some head lamps it does not charge via USB nor does it have like a small lithium ion watch battery, instead it powered by triple AAA batteries-I love this feature because while the batteries run down faster, if they ever do just get some cheap AAA battery replacements and you are good to go.The only thing you have to be careful of is having the headlamp be bumped on and draining the battery.Other than that it is a must buy! Great deal!
I love this headlamp. The Dark shadow color is a little darker green than what the picture shows & the head part of the lamp is a darker grey than in the picture. The color is epic though, & is exactly what I was looking for. I have a princeton tec apex headlamp that I really like, but it weighs a ton. I wanted something a little lighter & was comparing this one to the princeton fuel headlamp. I was looking for something not as bright as the apex too. I think that I found it. You will not go wrong with this lamp. It has a lot of features in it for the price of $29.95, although i got mine on a deal for 19.95. haha. The the dimming feature will certainly come in handy on hikes & around camp & for night fishing. I am always looking for a way to stretch the battery life on my electronics and this is an awesome way to do it. I like the red light as well to help preserve the night vision & the fact that it can do a strobe in both red & white lights is epic! Uber light weight!!
Reliable, easy to use headlamp. This is the second one of it's kind that I've purchased. I don't have a strong need for it other than camping, and it has almost everything I need in a headlamp: Several brightness settings (including battery saving), red light setting, and is compact. The only "issue" is that if you keep it in your pack when hiking, the battery has been known to turn out as it jostles around. I've learned to keep the batteries in a baggie separate from the lamp so it's not a huge deal, just something to note. I'd also make sure you have it on your head properly, if it's even the slightest bit loose and bonks you in the nose...well...let's just say it isn't comfortable.
"Lightweight, bright, a few options, but turns on easily in pack"
This headlamp would be awesome if only it had an on-off switch or if the button to turn on the headlamp weren't so easy to push. If you throw this thing in your pack, it'll inevitably at some point turn itself on, no matter where you put it... Huge bummer when you're doing a multi-day trek to have drained the batteries. Pretty lightweight but not ultralight; look for lights with thinner headbands if you want to shed some ounces. Seems pretty water-resistant but not waterproof. Can be a bit difficult to get open to change the batteries, even with nails. It has the usual various options of settings, including the red light. Can't say whether the batteries will last awhile because it turned itself on so frequently when not in use. You might want to try strapping it on the outside of your bag to keep the button from pushing. ;)
Like most headlamps from BD, this one gets 5 stars. The best function of the light is the ability to dim the light to your liking (not pre-set levels, but hold and it slowly dims, let up when you're satisfied). The red light is also a plus when looking to preserve battery or not be seen.
I absolutely love this headlamp! The different settings and adjustments are great! It's light and comfortable. I use it all the time for night hiking in all weather, and I couldn't ask for a better headlamp!
"Quality headlamp from Black Diamond at a great price."
This is the second Black Diamond Cosmo headlamp that I have purchased. I've had one for myself now for roughly a year, and it has been nothing but wonderful. It is incredibly bright, lightweight, and the elastic band is easy to adjust. Overall, a great headlamp and worth every penny.
Well, I bought this because I had previously lost my small mammut headlamp, I didn't want something sophisticated and huge, just a small headlight with basic functions or what's intended for. I gotta say I love this little thing, first because of the price, it's also not too small (compared to my old mammut) so it doesn't look very toy-ish. Besides it has all this great useful features that surprised me at first, I wasn't expecting them cuz as I said, I just wanted something basic, but wow I must say it was the best option for me. It really lights everything up no matter how dark it is or in what situation. This is trully a great headlamp for any use, outdoors or just lighten up a room or the basement when you need to find something. Great choice.
