Customer Reviews Of:
Black Diamond Equipment Ion LED Headlamp
Closeouts. A small size and lightweight design make Black Diamond Equipment's Ion LED headlamp an excellent pack-away emergency light, and with easy-to-use touch-control settings that emit up to 80 lumens, it's also a great companion for late-night runs or hikes.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by mtmountainman from Montana on Monday, November 28, 2016Really love this headlamp.
pros: lightweight. bright. small
cons: the finger touch slide system is a bit awkward and I have had it come on in my pack a few times.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Steve from Boston on Thursday, October 6, 2016This product is terrible. The "on-off" switch is very unreliable. Do no buy this product!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JD2000 from VA on Wednesday, October 5, 2016This is a great headlamp overall, but the on/off/"switch between modes" operation is a bit tricky to learn. There is no button, but a finger swipe from one side of the front face to the other turns on/off and switches modes. With just one motion (well, two - left and right swipes) it's confusing to keep track of what function you're doing.
Reviewed by Ginger from Hartford, CT on Monday, July 25, 2016My two kids and I all found these lights so hard to use, it was not worth keeping them. The trick to switch the light on or off, or from white to red requires very good fingers and an engineer's mind. My fingers hurt just from trying to make it work. Battery case also difficult. I did figure all the tricks out, but would not want to fight that hard in the dark. My kids could also just manage, but agreed it was not worth the effort. Would definitely appeal to some. Maybe ours were stiff, too.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fathomthat from Central Illinois on Wednesday, May 18, 2016Interesting functionality. A little difficult to learn the single operation but the overall quality seems on par with the price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by dude from idaho on Sunday, May 15, 2016It is really bright. head band super easy to adjust. really easy to turn on or switch to different settings.
