I have used 5 different headlamps - the three I have kept are all Black Diamond. This model has a great combination of adjustable light settings. The 1 watt throws an incredible focused beam in front of you. Alternatively, the LED lights spread out your view to both sides. Adjustable light levels me... Read More

    This headlamp has a strong spot, which I love. It also offers a weaker light, if one doesn't need all the light of a spot. A vast improvement over the prior headlamps I have had, which only provided the weak light.

    I have had the Black Diamond Gizmo for awhile, which I thought was a nice basic budget headlamp.

    Then I got the Black Diamond Spot, which wasn't that much more expensive when bought from Sierra.

    Holy wow... I compared the two and almost felt bad for the Gizmo. The Spot seems to be about 100 times brighter, and it's not that much bigger or heavier.

    Plus, it has a ton of great bonus features: battery indicator, two white-light modes (beam and close-up light) which are both dimmable, plus a flashing strobe setting and a red-light mode.

    The headband is also a little thicker, and is very easy to adjust and is comfortable and feels secure.

    It also looks nice, which of course doesn't really matter but, hey, it's better than it being super ugly.

    I would HIGHLY recommend this headlamp - especially if you're considering a real cheapo one. Just spend an extra $10 and you'll be VERY happy you did.

    Love the continuous dimming feature. Only drawbacks are that there are so many possible lighting adjustments that controlling them is no longer intuitive (have to read the instructions and even practice at home) and that the pivot mechanism seems somewhat cheap.

    I've owned about 5 different headlamps, and I think for the price my search is over. This is a really solid headlamp. It is lightweight, provides a wide range of light ranging from bright spot to soft, dispersed light, to late-night eye-sight-preserving red. On my last outing I was taking long-exposure and star stax shots with my DSLR, including making adjustments and new settings at 3:30am. We were in Central Oregon and the milky way was on full display... absolutely stunning. The red light LEDs helped me get around while preserving my night vision. It is comfortable and easy to use. Excellent.

    For the price I thought this headlamp was great. Extremely easy to use when compared to others. I have had multiple headlamps and some can get really confusing with the different options. One button and I was able to figure everything without even looking at the instructions.

    • Answer Yes, up and down on a single racheted hinge. So if you want to read or light up closer parts of the trail without lowering your head, you're good to go.

    • Answer Yes, the bottom part pivots downward to read maps and more. It clicks, like 3 or 4 clicks, so it can make reading a lot easier.

  • Question “Is this the newest version of the Spot?”
    Asked on 8/3/2014 1:52:12 PM by Brian from NC
    • Answer I was just in REI last week. I believe that it is the new one. I bought my headlamp when I lost mine on the Applichian Trail in May. If there has not been a model change since then ,the answer is yes. I replaced a OLD Black Diamond Icon, and this is a wider,just as bright beam. Eats batteries on the brightest setting. I walk two hours every morning in the dark, batteries start to dim in about eight days...

    • Answer No, this is the 2013 version. New one gets to 130 lumens
      Answered on 8/3/2014 5:57:56 PM by mcswig from Staten Island, NY
    • Answer Not really an answer; but I found the red lights to be too dim; even with new everready/duracell alkalines; to be too dim for use; even inside of a tent, and practically useless outside of the tent. - I do *not* expect much from the red lights to begin with.

      Newest version or not? Check the specs, they differ.

      Is it 'bad' at $30? No. I simply prefer my (found in a ravine buried) Petzel; which does not even have the red lights. Don't confuse a 1,000 features with any amazing breakthrough in function. Lots of button taps and holds and sequences on this one. I carried the instructions for a week before just going to a dartboard style of usage.


      Check, the specs.

      The one I received from STP is the 90 Lumen version. I use it extensively and it has held up well. I do not understand why the brightness battle in headlamps. I never use mine on full power. The dimming feature is the best idea in headlamps. I find very good battery life(remember I use dimmer mode). I am a long distance backpacker and have used this lamp on High Sierra loop of Yosemite and on the AT as well as many wilderness areas. I have no reservations in recommending this HL. Do play with it especially the lock off feature before you hit the trail. (Nothing worse then a HL that gets turned on in your pack and when you need it the batteries are dead.) There is a learning curve. The red leds are great for star gazing and give adequate light for cooking or tent use without blinding others. ALWAYS be aware of where your light is pointing so as not to shine into fellow hikers faces.

  • Question “What are the four light settings? Is one of the settings a red light/cover?”
    Asked on 3/13/2011 12:00:00 AM by Cassie from Alto, GA
    • Answer A single switch on top lets you choose from four lighting levels for both modes—min, mid, max and strobe—to dial-in the light output to your needs. There is not a red cover.

I purchased (3) of these lights, (2) of the Titanium (note pic's here are incorrect go to Black Diamond to see actual pic... they are Titanium-Orange lettering/logo on strap), (1) Green light as that website as well. All have the Red Light & Red Strobe Mode.

      Nice... Bright... you'll be pleased, I am. I purchased (2) Titanium originally, then my son wanted Green... it appeared, I bought, I will just keep the other Titanium for a back up, tent camping use.
