    I bought this and the Highgear mini lantern at the same time. Though the HIghgear is brighter, it is also heavier because it uses AA size batteries, whereas the BD uses AAA. I like the light weight, look, and feel of this little lantern. It has little rubber feet that will give it good stability if you set it down on a boulder or other uneven surface. It's also much more compact than the Highgear, and compacts even further when you turn it off and "close" it by sliding the globe down over the torso. The light it casts is much mellower than the HIghgear, which is bad if you have weak eyesight and are trying to use it as task lighting, but good if you just want to go to the bathroom in the night without blasting bright light into everyone's tent. Added mellowness feature: if you hold the switch for a couple of seconds it will dim the light. You can choose where in the continuum to stop the dimming, so there are a range of light intensity options. I"m not a backpacker but I imagine the compact size and lightness of this lantern would make it a good choice for backpacking.

    I purchased this headlight after reading a positive review. Haven't had a chance to use it on the trail but tried on at home and walked around in the dark, worked great, planning an overnight trip to the sierras this fall and looking forward to having this in my pack

    Lots of options on this - I really like the night vision preserving red light only feature, which my other headlamps don't have. I haven't had a chance to make use of the main spot so much yet, but that's probably also a bonus over my old model.

    I purchased this to take on a mission trip to Mexico where I would be living in the desert for 7 days. This light is awesome and worked better than expected. The high beam is extremely bright and functionality is very easy and intuitive.

    I have had great success with Black Diamond lamps. This new one is the evolving improvements in them. Adjustable brightness is nice. Quality elastic straps are a must.

    I am very happy with these poles. They have comfortable grips, they're lightweight, sturdy, they have a great locking mechanism, and the price is reasonable. I would have given them 5 stars if they would have included the rubber tip protectors (which I ordered separately later).

    We love all its many features. We bought four of them and couldn't be more pleased. I love the red light, night vision saver. Just have to teach the kids how to use them as they are a bit tricky to learn because they have so many functions. Awesome headlamp, you won't be disappointed.
