The Black Diamond Spot Headlamp is a 300 lumen light for nighttime activities. Go for a run, hike, or just see your way around camp. The adjustable headband is soft against your forehead and at just 3.9 ounces (with batteries), you won't feel like a bobblehead. An IPX8 rating delivers waterproof performance, so a rainy day or a dunk in the drink up to 3.3 feet for 30 minutes won't phase it.

  • One QuadPower LED and one DoublePower white LED emit 300 lumens
  • Red SinglePower LED for night vision has dimming and strobe settings and activates without cycling through white mode
  • PowerTap&trade Technology allows instant transitioning between full and dimmed power
  • Sleek, low-profile design uses three AAA batteries
  • Brightness Memory allows you to turn the light on and off at a chosen brightness without reverting back to full power
  • Settings include full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night-vision and lock mode
  • Waterproof; Protected against water immersion down to 3.3 ft for 30 minutes (IPX 8)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Memory function good, yellow spot bad! I have the 2016 version, which I like a lot, but bought this one for the higher light output and especially the memory function. The memory function is great, allowing me to set a good power level once and not blind everyone around me when I turn it back on. Unfortunately, as some other reviewers have noted, there's a yellow spot in the middle of the beam, and once I noticed it I had a hard time not being distracted or annoyed by it every time I use it. That was not an issue with the 2016 version. It's enough of a problem for me that it outweighs the benefit of the memory function, and I'll just stick to using the 2016 version for now. It sounds like it's not a problem for a lot of people, but the number of reviews mentioning it suggests that a significant fraction of people do have a problem with it. I'd still recommend it as an option for people, with a disclaimer, since it has a good feature set and they might not be bothered by the yellow spot. For the next iteration of this headlamp, please get rid of the yellow spot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yellow Spot The yellow hue is said by Black Diamond to be "actually completely normal." I understand that to mean they knew about it and judged it acceptable when they designed and prototyped the lamp. From the perspective of a user, it is not at all completely normal to see a yellow spot in the center of one's field of vision. It is highly disruptive because it draws one's attention to a specific spot in the field of vision. This causes users to look at the spot of light rather than the thing the light is supposed to be illuminating. While narrow-spectrum light interferes with depth perception, a central spot interferes with it as much or more. This is well known to cavers, for whom depth perception is very important, who have experimented for decades with bulbs that cause a center spot even without the color difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've bought three We use the red light for astronomy. Excellent! We use all the other functions for fishing/camping. Best light I've found. I've bought three and my buddies have bought a couple more because I don't share.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice headlamp, but yellow spot in spotlight beam I bought the spot headlamp some weeks ago as a replacement for my old cosmo headlamp. I like the functionality and the controls of the lamp, as also the power of the lightbeam. But what I don't like is the yellow spot in the center of the spotlight beam. For lighting something in the distance this is not a problem, but when using the spotlight beam at close distance at low power this yellow spot is annoying. I read black diamonds response concerning this issue reported by another reviewer, explaining the degrees Kelvin. But I don't agree with it, because I find the yellow spot annoying, and I own an older cosmo and a brand new ion, and neither of these two show a yellow spot like the spot headlamp does. I would have rated this headlight 5 stars without the yellow spot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great headlamp...when it works This is a good headlamp like I said, when it works. The issue I've been having with it is that it keeps randomly cutting out on me while I am using it. I'm sure this isn't normal and aside from that it is a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding light! For me, the Spot is the perfect headlamp. I was looking for a new headlamp and it was between two lights, this one and another. I was leaning towards the other light because of some comments here about the controls. I did some more research on the internet and this light had many great personal & professional reviews which was very helpful. I picked this light and I’m glad I did! I actually find the controls extremely useful and intuitive. I just love the overall flexibility this light offers. I also really like how the light beam is set up. I can do pretty much anything with this light from working on my electrical panel at my house, to cooking & reading while camping, to hiking, biking, cross country skiing, etc. I’ve had three headlamps before this one and this light is the absolute best. Great light!

How do you get the red light on?

Asked by: DEDe
Thanks for the question! Holding down the top mode button for two seconds will turn the red light on. I included the instruction manual below. Hope this helps!
