What customers say about "Key Specs"
Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp
  • Even at medium brightness it was sufficiently bright to see the terrain [esp. crevasses] clearly, and the cold temperature at 18000' didn't seem to cause any difficulty. It's amazing how much better this technology has improved in the past decade.
  • In any case, this light is FINE, no complaints. It works better than (and was priced lower than) my previous light it replaces.
  • Used this on my 560 mile section op the Pacific Crest Trail. Worked great, strong light, long lasting battery. A great headlamp.
  • Really like how bright the light is. The cycling through of the different light settings can be confusing but generally I only use the white light.
  • Functions as described. Bright, high quality headlamp
Black Diamond Storm Headlamp
  • The light is super bright (which is a pro) but it is not use friendly AT ALL to switch between options.
  • Different colors come in handy for night work
  • WOW this thing is bright....I mean bright...i'm not completely convinced its not somehow nuclear powered. This thing is so bright if you look at it you not only go blind you go deaf as well.
  • Awesome! Super bright! Very durable. Comfortable! Has a little pad behind the light so the plastic isn't against your head.
  • The max brightness setting is spot and proximity both maxed on high. Super super bright headlamp.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp
  • It’s also very bright for it’s size and weight and very durable. I use this light in the rain, snow, and sub zero temps and it’s worked flawlessly.
  • Very low profile and light, barely know it's there. It's a good little camp light but that's about it.
  • This is a very sleek light. Feature rich for the price. My only concern is the learning curve on using it.
  • Compact. Good power. Button system confusing.
  • Love it! Lightweight, great light output and dual battery types.
Black Diamond Storm Headlamp
  • This light is great for what I use it for, I might have it one for 30 minutes or even an hour, it's comfortable, small in size, and throws a lot of light. I really like it and so far it's served me well.
  • It has a little more hey than others in this size range, but once it's on I don't notice it at all. The strap is very comfortable and the slight extra padding where the light presses against your forehead is a nice touch.
  • This is impressive especially for its size. It’s like having a high power flashlight on your head. Plus it has several colors.
  • The strap sucks though - it is too loose and if you try and adjust it, it slips back to the original way to long size.
  • It's very bright for its size and doesn't have a huge battery pack.

What customers say about "Features"
Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp
  • Get a lot of use as a postal worker and battery life for me is even better than what it says so far. And i love the rechargeable feature of the product super handy dont have to carry around extra batteries.
  • I used this headlamp for a climb of Cayambe (Ecuador), setting it to medium brightness. The climb started at 11pm and I when I turned it off at 7am [8hr], it still had 25% charge. I was using the stock rechargeable batteries.
  • I went a'looking for a rechargeable headlamp because, over time, batteries tend to corrode in these types of units making them unreliable.
  • The rechargeable feature is still handy. The light has a nice "charging" indication, and it done though micro-USB.
  • The headlamp arrived with three rechargeable AAA cell batteries, rebranded to Black Diamond. One of the AAA cells was absolutely stone dead, measuring 0.00 Volts on my digital voltmeter.
Black Diamond Storm Headlamp
  • Very awesome light dimming feature for all the lights (main light, side light, red, green and blue) allows you to get your optimal brightness setting very easily.
  • The upgraded lighting design is smarter, with more features, but with the same familiar controls as the last one.
  • There are so many features and options that you cannot go wrong. It is a bit complicated at first, but just read over the instructions and then start testing it out and you'll get the hang of it.
  • If you’re looking for a reliable headlamp that gives you control over its features then I recommend you give the Black Diamond Storm a shot.
  • I like the new storm features especially the redesigned compartment for the batteries but that's where it ends.
