    Black Diamond Storm Headlamp is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Bright & Functional I own several headlamps and this one is by far my favorite. It is very comfortable and is incredibly light. The light itself is very bright and its different functions have been incredibly useful. The waterproofing also held up great in a pretty decent downpour.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headlamp I love this headlamp and use it a couple times a week assisting with SAR classes at night. I love the ability to dim the light, previously only had headlamps with 2-3 brightness settings with no dim-capability. I still use some older headlamps with the rear-mounted battery pack, which I still prefer when I'm not using a helmet because the weight balance is more neutral on my head. Otherwise this is my favorite headlamp in terms of features offered.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Tactical headlamp for the money I bought this headlamp to be used for work. I am with a Marine law enforcement unit. For the money it has all the features you could want. Best feature is once you put it into the red light mode it stays in that red light until you either change the batteries or change back to white light which is a must if you don't want accidental white light. Only complaint is that it is a little heavy compare to most headlamps due to having 4 batteries. I highly recommend this headlamp for anyone needing a bright, durable, waterproof headlamp with red light for night time use. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating is because of the weight and lack of versatility compared to other lights on the market but most of those cost much much more and that is why I chose this one and don't regret it at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthy improvement I have owned several headlamps (BD Spot, BD Icon, Vizz) and this is the best one yet. BD finally improved the Mode sequence! First, powering on with the tri-power every time is better than always cycling back and forth. Second, powering on at 75% power is a wonderful way to make the batteries last and the increased brightness means you rarely feel the need for 100%. The side-tap feature is a gimmick that may prove useful someday. Lastly the Lock Mode is still the most reliable and intuitive. I went with the BD Storm because the case is IPX-7 and the extra battery means the light is regulated and should be brighter longer than the Spot. The extra weight is still a negative, but that's what I knew buying it. Gram counters should look elsewhere. Only other negative is the Red leds are not as bright as they could be. I use the red often in-tent late at night and night photography. Overall a worthy improvement. Recommended.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not satisfied. Got a small crack from normal use almost immediately. Worked fine for two years. Then stopped working. Tried three sets of known good batteries. Took it back to REI. The customer service tried to guilt me into not returning a defective product, claiming that two years is as long as a $50 headlamp should last. Mr. Pierce, manager of the San Diego store refused to replace it due to the crack. I explained that the light worked for almost two years after the crack. I will not shop at REI again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Headlamp, New Design I use this to work on my car, look for things in attic/basement, walk the dog, take out trash. This is the best balance of a headlamp with it being light, very bright, and with many lighting options. The new design got it simplier for how to set the light although it would be nice if they could do more. I like it better since you can go straight to the bright light. The only thing worse is that it is harder to press the main button. With gloves it is very hard to know if you got your finger on it and so much force is needed with each attempt. Fumbling around gets annoying fast. I actually find controlling the light not too complex so only this button is a negative to me. That is hard to beat...this is the best light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headlamp I bought this for doing some nighttime work around the house, nice having a hands-free light that is always pointed in the direction I'm looking. It's comfortable on the head and didn't move from it's position when I did a 20 minute jog. Nice feature is the one tap "full bright" mode on the side of the light. Also is dimmable in all modes (bright white main light, 2 LED dimmer white light, and red light). I look forward to using it this year for some fishing, hiking and camping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Headlamp! A++ I went camping over spring break and had a cheap-O headlamp, and thought it was fine! BUT a few of my buddies had Black Diamond headlamps (one of them with a Storm) and It blew my headlamp out of the water! Soooo much brighter! So afterwards I did a little research and read a lot of reviews/videos and seemed like Black Diamond was by far the superior brand! So then I compared different BD headlamps and narrowed it down to the Storm! Perfect for me and what I do! Which is just use it for Regular stuff, and every once in a while go camping! But mainly just hangingout! It's great! Pro: BRIGHT! Lightweight Waterproof Touch pad dim setting Lock mode
