Recent Headlamp Reviews

NiteCore HC30

rated 5 of 5 stars Great headlamp for a good price. Best for serious night navigation and caving. Ok, so I can finally add this review after several months of punishing caving and some night navigation. This light gets a fantastic review. Bought it when one of my Zebralight H600 lamps died. It is similar in the general design, but there are marked differences. 1. The light cycles through the different modes much more intuitively than a Zebralight. It can be annoying to users like me at first, but once you figure it… Full review

Petzl Tikkina

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the price it is high quality. A very cheap and good quality headlamp.  The brightness is pretty good (80 lumens), has two modes which are easy to operate. Battery case seems OK.  Full review

Black Diamond Storm

rated 5 of 5 stars Great headlamp—strong beam with good battery life. Love this headlamp. It's waterproof, has many features; the best of which is the ability to lock it in the off position. I don't have to turn batteries around to prevent it from turning on while in my backpack. The battery life is very good; just remember to set it to low whenever possible. Full review

Black Diamond Ion

rated 5 of 5 stars Packs a lot of power into a small lightweight design. Fully waterproof. I do a lot of OCR (obstacle course racing) and trail running. Now that it's fall I find it dark in the AM or early evening and a headlamp is critical. This is great lamp at this price point. It's super lightweight and waterproof (IPX8). This is a rare feature at this price point. When racing I may be submerged and have lost other lights that are "water resistant." At night running on trails it does provide sufficient lighting… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent bright light. Easy to use boost function to max light output. Love the light! Super bright with a very easy tap to boost to max output. Have yet to test run times, but so far it's pretty good. My only complaint is the awkward orientation of one of the buckles.The buckle causes the strap to push against the head if tight. Caused an abrasion on my scalp, cleared after loosening the strap.  Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bright, small, lightweight, and durable headlamp. Bright, small, lightweight, and durable head lamp I recently purchased this new model of the Black Diamond Spot for a backpacking trip in Europe. I never gave too much thought about headlamps but after having enough of Energizer’s headlamps I decided I did want a reliable (the headband on the Energizer loosens quickly), bright torch I can hike with (without it leaning down while you walk) that will be battery-efficient. This lamp does it ll. I’ve… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely wide range of brightness settings with the brightest being equivalent to the sun. It would appear that this product has gone through multiple iterations, so I will state up front that I bought mine in January or February 2016 and is the same as that shown on the Black Diamond website in October 2016.  I suppose that this would make it a 2016 model. I have used it for one camping trip and often for tasks around the house that require extra light. I have used the light about every two weeks… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 1 of 5 stars Battery case lock snapped after literally one minute of use. Overall I did not use the lamp in any outside situation, but it seems flimsy and would not survive long. Has many features, but getting to them is not straightforward if you're in a difficult situation with the lamp on a helmet. Then you will have to remember exactly the sequence of getting to the feature you want.  Full review

Amphipod Swift-Clip Cap Light

rated 4 of 5 stars A featherweight backup for when your lamp/light fails, and a handy gadget to keep in your pocket for days you get to camp late and haven't unpacked your primary headlamp. It won’t light up the world but will get the job done. Summary I picked up the Amphipod Swift Cap Light on a whim to throw in my pocket on short trips where I don’t really need a full backup light or extra batteries. At a half ounce, it is a handy gadget to keep around during those times when you are not sure you will really… Full review
