- 300 lumens with a 30 hour burn time
- PowerTap technology for easy setting adjustment
- IPX8: Waterproof-Tested up to 1.1 meters of water
- The battery compartment is not fully secured and if the light does get wet you will need to remove the batteries to let them dry.
The Black Diamond Spot Backpacking Headlamp is loaded with convenient features that work great for backpackers especially.
This light packs some decent power delivering 300 max lumens up to 80 meters.
One of the coolest features on this headlamp is Black Diamond’s PowerTap technology. This allows you to easily switch from the light’s distance mode down to proximity mode by simply tapping the side of the light casing.
This is especially great for backpackers who need to switch light intensity from lighting up the trail to just a dim light for reading or cooking.
Within each mode, there are several brightness settings as well, including dimming, strobe, red night-vision. The great thing is you don’t have to cycle through all the different settings to get to your light.
There’s also brightness memory so you can get your previous light setting when turning the light back on.
The light casing is extremely durable with an IPX8: Waterproof-Tested up to 1.1 meters of water and will operate for 30 minutes.
The only bummer is that the battery compartment is not fully secured and if the light does get wet you will need to remove the batteries to let them dry.
The head strap is very easy to adjust. Unlike other headlamps, you don’t have to remove the Black Diamond off your head and can fully adjust the strapping while its still on your head. This is also great for runners.
This headlamp takes 3 AAA batteries and has a run time of 30 hours at 300 lumens so it works great for a few nights out on the trail.
As much as we loved the Black Diamond Spot, we always encourage our readers to compare this headlamp to the TL900 Tactical Headlamp, which is our editor’s choice backpacking headlamp.
