What customers say about "Key Specs"
Princeton Tec Vizz Headlamp
  • I found the lights options are nice and well made.
  • The Vizz is very bright. Red LEDs are nice too.
  • This is a well made headlight that is very bright.
  • The bright LED is regulated which I also like but only seems to work on one setting, high.
  • As far as I know these are the only headlamps that are made in the USA. They are very bright, they work as advertised, they are durable, (I have 2 different types).
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"
Princeton Tec Vizz Headlamp
  • The headband is comfortable and easy to adjust.
  • Good weight and comfortable to wear at night while wondering around looking for more wood.
  • Build quality looks good, very comfortable and light.
  • It's comfortable, bright, has a red light, great battery life, and can lock to prevent accidentally being turned on. What more could you want.
  • The headlamp is a little heavy and flops slightly while running.
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"
Princeton Tec Vizz Headlamp
  • The red light feature did like it was supposed to and helped me retain my night vision
  • This head lamp will quite litetally blind you. Simple to use, no special batteties and multiple light options. Waterproof as well.
  • Being waterproof, lightweight, and easy to use, I really like my headlamp.
  • This headlamp also has a red led which is useful at night when you don't want to blind other people or affect your night vision. Overall this is an okay light for many uses.
  • This lamp is very bright, they work as advertised, they are durable.
  • Battery has a VERY short lifespan. It's depleting the battery when you're not using it
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.
