Perfect budget headlamp

Verified Buyer Reviewed by mofo83 from Seattle on Thursday, September 11, 2014
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.
