What customers say about "Key Specs"
Black Diamond Gizmo Headlamp
  • This light is perfect for what it's intended to do.
  • Had a nice wide flood beam, with a little hot spot in the middle - great for all around use.
  • Really good bright light.
  • It gives off plenty of light for normal usage.
  • The light is dimmable but always turns on "full bright" - Would prefer if it remembered its dim level when turned off.
Petzl TIKKINA Headlamp, 150 Lumens, Standard Lighting
  • Good headlamp. One click starts you off on low. Two clicks gives you a VERY bright light.
  • It's hard to believe 3AAA's produce the obscene amount of light with such a tiny LED.
  • The brightness is “good enough” for now. I plan on upgrading to a more expensive head lamp in the future and having this as a backup light.
  • Great basic lamp for a young person, for basic reliable lighting with no gizmos or maintenance.
  • I use this to run on the beach at night! It's perfect and doesn't slide across my forehead. I love that this is comfortable and the light pivots for the angle I need.

Black Diamond Gizmo Headlamp

  • The band is comfortable enough.
  • Comfy to wear, light, small, and durable so far.
  • The smaller size fit's the kids heads easily and it is lightweight.
  • This tiny light packs a big punch. Strap it on your head and forget about the night.
Petzl TIKKINA Headlamp, 150 Lumens, Standard Lighting
  • I like it very much except I wish the head band would adjust to a larger size so I could wear a wool watch cap
  • Light weight, Simple to operate
  • So easy to use, comfortable to wear, and efficient to buy and run @ such a cheap price, it's almost a sin if you look past one or these.
  • I love that this is comfortable and the light pivots for the angle I need.
  • Excellent product, very comfortable, great lighting options, very reliable and well worth the price.

What customers say about "Features"
Black Diamond Gizmo Headlamp
  • It's not going to light your entire path on a mountain bike trip in the dark, but for changing a tire and needing to use your hands, or pulling out your map or looking for a snack it's perfect.
  • This is a wonderful entry level headlamp, and the average camper/climber will find good use in this.
  • It has been used for over 80 hours and it still works great.
  • This one is perfect for around camp and reading.
  • The battery life is excelent and it has a very large field of light when on high power.
  • My only wish is that it would remember your dimming setting from power-off to the next power-on instead of always resetting to full brightness.
Petzl TIKKINA Headlamp, 150 Lumens, Standard Lighting
  • Perfect for staying in my hiking daypack, and cant beat the price. It's comfortable on the head, and the tilt feature is nice for fine tuning.
  • Good lamp but drains batteries after 3 hours (including when I turn it off on breaks). I use this while caving and am always the first person who has to change batteries.
  • Great headlamp. Good battery life. The three lighting brightness levels are perfect for my Boy Scouts on their camping trips.
  • I bought the rechargeable core battery to go with it. Awesome! Battery lasts a long time and you can count on this piece of equipment to work when you need it most.
  • The plastic clip that latches the battery compartment to the body of the light doesn't fit snug at all. In a Washington rain this would last minutes in incidental outdoor use. To lazy to return!
