With even more power and added features, the Black Diamond Spot Headlamp is our most popular headlamp for everything from late-night rappels to pre-dawn ski tours. Now with 130 lumens of bright, fully adjustable light, the Spot also features our new PowerTap Technology, which allows for quick, on-the-fly brightness adjustments with just a finger tap to the side of the Spot’s touch sensitive housing. The Spot’s bright, powerful beam is ideal for finding anchors or illuminating the trail, while its proximity mode handles camp tasks, tent reading and gearing up at the car. A handy lock mode keeps the light from turning on accidentally in your pack or pocket.

* This product does not qualify for shipping to all countries.

I have been fairly quiet about reviews until I tried out my new Black Diamond Spot headlamp last week. My old headlamp is also a Black Diamond, but it is at least 4 years old. Oh, my what enormous improvements they have made. With only 3 AAA batteries the thing gives off 90 lumens and blasts a light for over 200 feet. They claim that the batteries will last for 250 hours. There are two major settings, spot and wide angle, but if you hold the button it will dim to whatever brightness you desire. Perfect for the long trip where you want the control over battery life. On our recent run, no one wanted to go in front of me because I was casting such a bright light. At a little over 30 bucks, it is worth tossing your old lamp to the Teen Challenge or some homeless guy left in the dark.

Out of the box this headlamp is excellent, save for a slightly floppy light fixing. But give it a year and a good bit of use and it becomes pretty bad, starts eating through batteries quicker than my black lab eats dinner. The light is also very bright with fresh batteries, but after about 2 minutes it starts to dim very quickly, this gets worse as the headlamp gets older. Mine developed a loose connection where it wouldn't turn on until I hit it a bit, and even then would flicker and turn off sometimes. Not the most reliable which is scary when your getting lost in the woods and it's a 50/50 game on whether the light would work or not. Overall good headlamp, but just plan on replacing it right when the warranty is up (or before if you want to be sure your light is working).

spot on

By Edward

from Los Angeles, CA, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

a couple of features i really like is the dimmer and the weight, some lamps you can really feel on ur head but this one has been pretty good. I can't really say how long the battery lasts because i am still on my first set and I bought the head lamp about 6months ago. it's easy on/off and I haven't used the red light but I like that it's there and that I could if need be. It is very bright and stays bright which I also like. If you want a solid, no nonsense head lamp that is bright and will work, I recommend this lamp. I haven't had the same problems with it turning on in my pack draining batteries as other have but I may have just been lucky. I do store my headlamp and other quick access items in a separate stuff sack in my pack's top compartment.

Turns on in my pack

By John

from Boulder, CO, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

Even when the lock that is supposed to keep it from turning on by mistake is locked, it still gets turned on in my pack. In fact, that happened the first time I used it. I have had to put it in a plastic case. Otherwise, it's a great headlamp.

Spot Head Lamp

By Jeff

from NC

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

Great headlight, very bright, have been using it Mountain Biking with great results. Turning on and off and different light settings was a little confusing at the start but after a couple of uses it becomes second nature. Have used extensively on long distance Mountain bike trips mounted to my bike helmet, has received a lot of abuse and wet/snow conditions and is still going. I like it so much I decided to buy a second one and mount to my handle bars. Only negative is the pivot system seems a little weak although it has not failed. I use this head light 2-3 times a week when out training.

Horrible

By ken

from Los Angeles, CA, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

The most frustrating headlamp I have ever owned. Virtually every time I use it I have to dig for the instructions. The ultimate example of feature creep. Once you manage to get into red mode, you try every conceivable combination of button presses to get it out. Impossible to remember. And the lock feature is a joke. All you need to do is press it for a few seconds and it unlocks. So, when buried in a pack and pressing up against something, it unlocks, turns on and drains the battery. This has happened to me so many times that I just remove the batteries every time I stow it.

Great buy!

By Shelli

from University of Southern Mississippi

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

I'm loving this headlamp! I bought 15 of them for the Outdoor Adventures program that I run and could not be happier with them. I had difficulty at first figuring out how to put the batteries in and couldn't find clear instruction on how that worked, but I finally figured out that the pry off spot was on the bottom. As per BD fashion, they conveniently placed the pry "bar" as a clip on the headlamp . . . no tools needed! The lock feature, dimmer switch, and red modes are perfect for what I was looking for. This headlamp lights up the sky . . . or cave . . . or whatever you need to light up!

SPOT - A Powerful Headlight!

By Benjamin

from Syracuse, NY, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

In short, the Spot Headlamp is a powerful, dependable, no-nonsense headlight you be glad to have in your vehicle's glove-box or in your emergency kit. For those of you who complain that this headlight is too complicated to figure out, please people, take a few minutes to read the manual... it is not rocket science. Very easy and intuitive!! The battery compartment might be hard to open for some but snaps in easy once you put the batteries in. The 130 lumens is a COMBINATION OF ALL the lights ON at the same time - spot, flood and red night vision but you can't do that in the Spot Headlight. You can choose one or the other. Nevertheless, a useful headlight to have when you are on the road, hiking, or otherwise.
