    Black Diamond Spot Headlamp is rated 4.325 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Just picked this up and I love it. It's a great improvement over the last BD Spot I had. Whereas with that one you never knew which mode it turned on in without directly looking at it (a pain if it was on your head already), this one turns on in the mode you want based on how many pushes you give the button. As for the reveiwer that complained it turned on in his pack, there is a lock feature which prevents this. If you're still concerned about this happening, get the Petzl Tikka 2 headlamp pouch--not only will it ensure the headlamp doesn't turn on accidently, it will protect it from getting scratched. As for "MacGyver" who couldn't figure out how to open the battery cover, the new Spot is far easier to open than the older version with its fiddly tab you had to push. On the bottom of the new version, simply pull up on the body-colored (the lamp's, not yours) tab near the hinge and off it comes. Couldn't be simpler. Great headlamp. Looking forward to many nights out cross-country skiing with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for 10 day trek. Wanted a light that was not too heavy but still plenty bright, this one is perfect. Lasted 10 days at Philmont and the light only became noticeably dimmer on day 10. One set of Lithium batteries lasted the whole trek and I wasn't trying to conserve the battery. I like the lockout feature and the fact that is has two beams, the full light and the "up close" light. Would be a great gift for a Scout or backpacker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Took this on a 3 day trip backcountry hiking in West Virginia. This light is extremely bright and I used it on a dim setting for most of the time at the camp ground. It is very nice that you have the option of dimming it to exactly the level that suits you. You can also easily switch to red lighting which can be useful inside a tent at night. Can't speak about waterproofness or battery life yet, but out of all the headlamps I have had so far, this is by far the best one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Batteries are easy to change Just got this light - seems to work pretty well. It's nice that the red lights can be turned on without turning on the bright white light first. To RagingBuddhist - the batteries are actually quite easy to change. The front of the light flips open from the bottom, no tools necessary. MacGyver probably would have been able to figure it out in very little time, and with no duct tape, matches, or even coins required!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Headlamp! I use this primarily for running trails at night. I really like the lowest setting for smoothed out, widened paths for saving battery life. I also like how you can adjust the brightness of both settings, and also that you're able to tap the side to switch to the brightest ambience quickly. It's not the most comfortable, but not the worst either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid mid price lamp I bought this lamp for hiking and ended up using it for nearly everything. It's my go-to light source. The wide beam is excellent for moonlit nights. For darker nights or deep forest hikes, I'm all about the spot beam. I like being able to dial down the brightness in either mode, and the lockout mode is a must as far as I'm concerned. I'm fully satisfied with the Spot model, but given how much I use it, if I were to do it again, I'd spend the few extra bucks on the brighter fully waterproof Storm model. I chose the Spot initially due to the weight savings (one less battery). With that said, the few times I've used the Spot in light rain, I haven't had any issues. It is splash resistant. Just not fully waterproof like the Storm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little light I have to disagree with Ragingbuddhist. I've put batteries into this unit four times, and never encountered any difficulty. I received this light as a gift, but one that I had asked for after having used a friend's. I love this light!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update on first review Update from previous review. I bought a new Spot and they new one is vastly better than the old version. The lamp is brighter, the strap more comfortable, and they changed the angle adjuster to (most likely) deal with the durability of the old version. I wasn't really thrilled with the way they changed how the light is changed, but I assume a little time and I'll adjust. For the price, it's amazing.
