This is a fantastic headlamp in brightness, longevity and features. However I would make some small changes to it's design and operation. I'm a photographer, biker and skier and mountaineer living in Alaska. First, the good 1. Amazingly Bright with good light fall off on 4x led 2. Decent color temperature for 4x led 3. Uses 4 AA instead of 3AAA (easier to come by, far longer lasting, aa/aaa rechargeable packs only charge even numbers {have fun swapping out that third battery}) 4. Red led for night photography and dark sky enjoyment. 5. Single power 2 Led mode has fairly wide field of view, pretty nice light pattern. 6. Strobe, single power white and red modes only. What I'd change/add (as I didn't see a page for R&D feedback) 1. As in the arctic version, make all the battery packs detachable, with optional cord extensions. 2. Put Red led on back of battery pack for marker, strobe and traffic, fully adjustable, separate button. 3. Always start lamp in last mode and brightness used, fading up from zero, soft start. Going to full bright at 200 lumens is jarring and annoying to users, but mostly others. Plus it saves switching modes on every restart just to get back to where you had set it last time. 4. Reflective lettering on headband and all of battery back. 5. Strobe in 4x led mode 6. Multiple strobe patterns. fast, slow, fading, attention, sos. 7. Hard cut on 4x led beam pattern like car headlights. 8. Make Single power 2 led beam pattern wider. Perhaps add 2 additional white LEDs for wide 9. 3 white led (4x + 2wide 1x)mode for better peripheral vision 10. Battery cover/case latch mechanism is too weak a material for size. Demo unit at store was broken at that location. Observe and be careful, push cover in fully before attempting to latch closed. 11. Larger, more pronounced switch with stronger actuation click for gloved use. 12. Additional switch. Almost too many functions to assign to one switch, if these suggestions are implemented. 13. Select 5500kelvin leds only for 4x LED, or have model that does for photographers. Also consider 3200k or Foglight yellow as additional versions. 14. 3200k/2600k for single power leds for more comfortable camp lighting. Kelvin is color temperature, 5500k sunlight 2600k candlelight. 15 Wider lighting for red leds at an even lower angle, Most red use is close up. Strip led? 16. Allow headlamp to rotate 90degrees up, to light ceiling, igloo or tent and a few more degrees downwards as well. 17 Lower angle of 1x led's relative to 4x led, close up vs distance use. 18 Just have to say it again, PLEASE start light by fading in (soft start) from low on last mode used. Starting from lowest power will save users battery life since they will intentionally have to select more power, as opposed to choosing to save power by starting at full and then decreasing power. That is a fairly long list of changes/wants, but this is still the BEST headlamp I've ever owned. There are brighter, but not at (or near) this price or with this feature set. So go buy it, you won't be sorry.

I bought this light a few months ago. Everything was great until today. I put new batteries in it and the area on the battery case that has two slots to lock the top on broke. I treated this light like I treat my Zeiss camera lens. I didn't abuse it. The case has a design flaw. It's very plain to see. The area where the latch goes into the slot is too thin. There is nothing wrong with the way the light functions. Its the thin amount of plastic that is holding the battery top on. It's not strong enough to hold the pressure. I use my light daily. I always buy high quality equipment. I looked at how other headlamps were made and none of quality were made with this design. There is too little material to hold the lid on. If the case was made thicker at the top it would be much better. I would re-design the way the case opens & closes. Using a bolt with threads on it would work. The springs inside the case are putting pressure on the top. As you close the top the springs make it difficult to push the top down. As you turn the latch to close it you are pushing against the thin tooth pick like structure that holds the lid on. I'm not the only person that has discovered this flaw in the design. I majored in design and it's very plain to see the problem. Just make the top of the case taller or out of a material that can take the latch pushing up against the slot it is trying to go in with the pressure of the springs inside pushing up on the lid. The light itself is a wonderful light. I truly love the design and the functions of this light. If only the case was made stronger and of a material that wouldn't fall apart so easily. The case will have to be redesigned. I can't imagine having a light with a case that has a thin structure holding it together as this one has. Someone made a critical error when they let this go to manufacturing.

Great Headlamp

By Rodney

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

This is one of the brightest lights I have ever seen. It is also very easy on batteries even on the brightest setting. Everyone in my hunting group has one and loves it


Bright and comfortable

By Lawrence

from Undisclosed

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

I moved to the ICON from a STORM. I was concerned about carrying the weight of the battery pack on my head but with two runs now under my belt with the ICON I have noted no issues. Light is very bright. Straps easily adjustable to maintain a snug fit and there is no movement of the light with running.


When you can't afford a problem

By Martha

from left coast

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

When you are reading in bed, or need to lock up the chicken coop, use any headlamp from the sporting goods or hardware store. When your business finds you in odd dark places and you need to be sure that you get out, please consider this lamp. It is elegant, as compact as it can be, and may keep you alive. I've been gradually upgrading our headlamps and wish now that I had simply started with the best and stopped there instead of wasting so much money over the years on moderately expensive mediocre tools.

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

I bought my 1st light many years ago, sent it in for repair and received a new light free! When I lost that one i didn't even look at another brand, not to mention the light is easy to use, has spotlight, dim, strobe and red not to mention you can adjust the intensity of the light

Good illumination

By Carol

from Bend, OR, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

Very bright and adjustable light. Like the red light for use in working search dogs at night (doesn't interfere with night vision). But it is heavy. In very cold weather, I prefer a battery pack that can be warmed inside a jacket. Has a limited forward tilt range. Needs a higher profile switch you can feel while wearing gloves. Crown (top) strap should be longer for use on a helmet.

...sounds good but no charger?

By Becky

from Willits, CA 95490, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

I suppose this is where I need to go...but I mourn the loss of my lost Black Diamond with the battery pack on the headband that I could charge. I don't climb or ski, but I suppose I trek and hike after sheep or cows, fix fence and sew-up livestock, or shear creek soaked sheep, lamb-out a ewe or just do is every day or/and night and not having the charger option is going to be real inconvenient.


Great features!

Everything I expected & more. Fantastic headlamp! Plan to buy one for my wife so I can get mine back! Head & shoulders above anything else out there. Absolutely love it!!!


Great HeadLamp for Search and Rescue Work

By Scott

from New Mexico, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Icon Headlamp:

I purchased this headlamp for all around use when you really need to be able to see in the darkness of Wilderness Search and Rescue. This light is wonderful. The small LEDs on the sides provides enough light to see right in front of you to light your immediate area around your feet and saves battery life. Then you turn on the "big" center light and it allows you to see a focused beam of light way in the distance. Search and Rescue normally is out working in the middle of the night and in all inhospitable conditions. I used this light while serving on missions in the wilderness areas of High Elevations of Taos, NM. The only downside to this headlamp it has no really good way to keep small and contained in my pack when not in use. It would be great if BD would offer a carry case for it. I keep an ION in the first aid kit for specialized work and the ICON for Searching. I have used the ICON in sub degree temps, warm summer nights in the high desert as well as the extreme wet during the summer "monsoons". It never failed to meet my needs. Highly recommend
