Rated5out of5bymcriderfromExcellent HeadlampI was very pleased with this purchase! It's just what I was looking for. I plan to use the headlamp hiking, backpacking, and camping. I bought this one because it is waterproof. I don't plan on diving in the water with it, but we get a lot of rain in Oregon.It is comfortable to wear and the light is crazy bright but can be dimmed to whatever suits you. It adjusts to point wherever desired. I have no regrets with this purchase.

Rated5out of5byduncan559fromGreat product!!!! Best headlamp I've owned.The fact that it's waterproof is what made me want to get it because my last one broke due to water damage. It has an awesome dim feature for every light mode; it has three light modes. It also has a touch sensor on the side to brighten each light. It's not that heavy and the battery compartment is sealed with a screw so it very durable. Great product and would definitely get it as my next one.

Rated3out of5byjrussell6fromstill the best value, but....I like this headlamp, I also have the older version, both have the same problem that I have with it. When I turn on the headlamp, I don't understand why it doesn't start up in the moment I turned off in. And when you turn on it starts up in the brightest mode meening if you had it on proximity mode for reading a map at night or something and you turn it off for a minute to stare at your fire or have a conversation and not blind your friend, when you turn it back on you will blind yourself and your friend and have to frantically click through settings to get back down to where you had it. I wish it would turn on at the same setting I turned it off at. Or at the very least, cycle from the lowest setting to the highest instead the on button meaning instant blinding. Other than that, solid lamp nice to not worry in the rain. Simple and reliable.

Rated3out of5bynot satisfiedfromNot 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.

Rated5out of5byHungry BearfromA worthy improvementI 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.

Rated5out of5bySchuy BearfromFantastic 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!

Rated4out of5byTrooperfromBest Tactical headlamp for the moneyI 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.
