Black Diamond Storm

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Nice quality, very bright, and well made. This is a great light that's a bit on the heavy side but has a good burn time. Controls aren't very intuitive, but easy enough to figure out with some time. I was looking for a heavy duty light that uses commonly available batteries, throws a bright beam, and has a long battery life.  This fits the bill.  It's fairly heavy, I have a much smaller and lighter headlamp that works well for small tasks around camp but the Black Diamond Storm is bright enough… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Great headlamp with strong beam, and good battery life. Has battery meter, and and is highly water resistant; it's waterproof unless submerged. Can be locked to prevent it from turning on in a pack. I 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 the headlamp 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 Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, great battery life, enough lumens To address the con. I wear hat size 7 1/4, and the band is extended to the full amount it can be. Works great for me, but maybe not others. I have used this on 4 overnight trips, plus some day hikes where I end after sunset, and still havent replaced the batteries. And its still more then bright enough, I usually only use it on the lowest setting. Great Buy! Full review

UCO A-120

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a very basic but good headlamp that has a little bit of a funky look and feel to it, but does the job and is very simple to use. Let me first say that I received this headlamp as a gift for being a past Reviewer of the Month here at Trailspace. I almost didn't write a review of this headlamp as there are already two excellent reviews that cover the design of this headlamp in great detail, but in the end I thought I would provide a brief review and share my thoughts on a couple of points… Full review

Black Diamond ReVolt

rated 4 of 5 stars Awesome headlamp, many people say it's the best. Used it on hiking trips at night and it worked better than most out there. Very long lasting batteries, light is brighter when using regular AAA, but there's no significant difference. Good comfort and many light options, useful to save hours of run time. Only downside is that the lamp is a bit heavy and slides down the head sometimes. Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Fully waterproof protection. It can rain with cats and dogs, not a drop of water will get inside. Reliable and precise. Powerful beam. An interesting feature is the Brightness Memory which allows you to turn the light on and off at a preferred intensity. Lock mode is also extremely helpful. You simply can count on it. Exactly what i need in my long trekking, days and nights. I've been using an old head lamp, different brand, but was never satisfied with it. I have also an ice axe BD (and I just… Full review

Petzl Noctilight

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Useful addition to a small Petzl headlamp, which turns it into a versatile lantern. Nice to have for those who need a night lamp or simply a soft light source in their tent or at picnic table. Usually we travel in backcountry with our child, and it’s necessary to have a night light in the tent. Our two Petzl Tikka R+ headlamps don’t fit well for that, as they are too powerful, and even the red light doesn’t work well as a night light. Also we needed a diffused light for using inside the tent… Full review

UCO A-120

rated 3.5 of 5 stars UCO has created a nice, decent headlamp. The Cree LED lighting is quite bright. The "Infinity Dial" is an excellent innovation. The drawbacks in this headlamp have kept me from loving it as much as other lights I have used over the years. I received the A-120 as part of a prize package for being the May 2106 Reviewer of the Month. The light was tested on several overnight trips since that time. It was also tested once on an early morning run, when my regular running light could not be found (rotten… Full review

Petzl Reactik +

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Petzl Reactik Plus incorporates Petzl's reactive technology light settings with the added feature of being Bluetooth compatible to pair the light with the MyPetzl Light app. I highly recommend this light and it performs well in a multitude of activities ranging from hiking and snowshoeing to backcountry ski touring. Background Details: The Petzl Reactik Plus is a headlamp that incorporates Petzl's Reactive lighting technology which adjusts lighting output based on user need. The light has a… Full review
