Fit is terrible.... too long and too tight. Not sure what they were thinking when they made this. No pockets other than the one front chest. Order a full size larger if you are really intent on getting this.

I purchased this headlamp as a backup to the exact same model. I use this for running and it has never slipped off or failed me. I already own one, but wanted a second for my suitcase. I think the best compliment of an item is the willingness to buy it again! It's super bright, lightweight and goes for several hours before needing a charge. Absolutely the best light out there!

This was my first intro to Black Diamond gear. I was so impressed with not only the quality, but also the ingenuity that I have since bought several more BD products. For illumination tools, I usually get Streamlight or Surefire, but for a light-weight lantern, the Voyager is awesome. The dimmer feature is intuitive and genius! Many combo tools make you quickly return to your standby sole-purpose gear, but the flashlight on this lantern is good enough for most purposes (likely used in the house during power outages more than the occasional tent rummaging). The Voyager is certainly good enough to make me want the newer, more powerful model.

I bought these to use as a liner in a pair of mittens and was happy to find they are not too thick and fit inside perfectly. They are well made and feel quite warm although winter will put them to the test. Decent grip surfaces should make handling camera gear worry free.

I bought 2 of these for my kids for Christmas, and neither one works properly. They sometimes stay on for awhile, but generally shut off after a few minutes. Other times you turn it on, it turns right back off. This happens with both headlamps, so maybe we got two from the same defective batch. ??? New batteries do not fix the problem. Invert disappointed, and the kids are frustrated. I honestly don't know why I've bothered keeping them around.

We didn't leave them out in the rain, but some incidental moisture collected in the globe. Nice design though - the switch is covered by the globe in the compact/packed position, so it can't be switched on accidentally during transit. Not overly bright lighting, but as advertised: it serves the purpose of ambient light.
