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.

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.

Flashlight disappointed me; 1. Self lights in the pocket of a backpack. Because of this, I have exhausted batteries when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, which was very bad, as it was the night climb. 2. Unpleasant hangs in the attachment point to the axis tilt Further, regulation-focusing. I tightened the screw with a screwdriver, but after a couple hours of the screw is loose again. The quality of light have no complaints

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.

Gift to a through hiker

By John

from Lithia, FL, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

I purchased the headlamp for a friend who is planning an AT through hike next spring. After exhaustive research, we decided this was the best choice. Great options including dimmer made this an excellent choice. I think I'll have to get one for myself. Will have to give you an update on headlamp during and after the trip.

Turns on for no reason

By Sid

from Calgary, AB, Canada

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

A wonderful headlamp, IF it only would stay off when it was in your pack. Sure it has the lock on it, but it can be unlocked when stuffed in your pack; and it does.

great headlamp

By Eric

from Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

Have had different brand for years, still have it and use it...but. This is my first BD lamp, love the lock feature, also love the dimmer with the side tap; that really saves battery power too. Have a huge head, so the extra band length helps, other brands sometimes give me a headache after a few hours. Have used this on BD dome, attaches fast and stays put. Still works when wet, but needs to dry out after. If you are working in really wet conditions consistently, the Storm has same features but totally waterproof with a few more lumens. I have been hard to convince on BD headlamps and have been loyal to another brand of lighting, but with BDs new stable of high lumen headlamps; wont go back.

Love this headlamp

By Jason

from Big Sky, MT, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

As some of the other reviewers commented, the lock on/ off feature is key. I keep this lamp in my pack for early morning avalanche control work. My previous lamp seemed to get accidentally turned on floating around my pack. Haven't had that issue with the Spot headlamp. No more dead battery when I critically need light. Also, when skiing around the mountain before the sun comes up, you need a good light beam, the Spot provides ample light to safely ski to my post and arm shots. I've had many headlamps and this one suits my needs very well.

This is what you need..just buy it!

By Paul

from Arlington Heights, IL, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Spot Headlamp:

The quality is above and beyond. The best feature for me is the fact that I can lock the on/off button so it doesn't accidentally go on in my pack. The battery life is great and of course it is determined by how much YOU use the highest setting or how long you have it on etc. The lumens are exactly what they say it is and you should be able to even run down the trail at night with it on. This is the best of all worlds and the price is right.
