User Review: Black Diamond Zenix
I always thought that if I paid top price for a piece of equipment that it would perform just the same as for the price.
NOT SO! I've the more that I paid, the more complications came with. Like with any new product you have to research and read the various reviews on that certain item.
Black Diamond so far, has been absolutely the outfitters of outfitters of what I needed. I've owned many other headlamps, but now after owning the Zenix I'm sold on the high performance led lighting. I use it for everything camping, doing odd jobs around the house and even reading in bed--so I really use it a hell of a lot!
The hyper lights on the side of the headlamp are just that very bright, the main led gives an absolute no voids, no dark spots and never out of focus. I've removed the top head strap, don't need it. It fits really snug on my head.
True, it's not made for long a distant beam,but I tell you what with the power that the two hyper led's and the main led puts out there's no need for a long focus beam. The Zenix is a little better for just working around the camp. I've gone on midnight runs through absolutely blacked out conditions. What I really love about this headlamp is that it doesn't bounce off of objects, meaning it doesn't white out in front of me--a blinding affect.
What really gets me is that, how can something so small be so powerful and bright! I suggest to any one to purchase the Zenix hyper light, it's one of the best led's I've ever owned!
