How To Use The Black Diamond Icon Headlamp


Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by An essential piece of equipment for your travels This is my 4th Icon headlamp and am very impressed with the improvements. After my last headlamp was damaged on a climb this is the only one I thought of to replace it with!! October 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's the best of times...and the worst of time. The lighting of the ICON is fantastic. I like the lower beams and the super long range VERY bright light. It is great for mountain biking, backcountry skiing, mountaineering and trail running. The weight is no big deal. BIG PROBLEM- It is way to easy to accidentally push the ICON button inside of my packs. 2 times it happened to me and I had no power when I was ready to use it. Not good. Maybe it's a good time to redesign;-) October 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome headlamp. I use it daily Just bought my 2nd one as my old one needs new straps. The old one still works well after years of use and abuse. I can't believe more people don't use headlamps for fun and work. I also use a rechargeable headlamp but the prefer the power of this one. September 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Lamp / Problem Battery Pack The light is great. I particularly like the warning LED for battery life. Problem with door to battery pack which fouled on batteries and cracked when forced. Note: This review concerns a 2012 model since redesigned. Covered by 3 year warranty. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lit Up The Trail Used the Icon at the Leadville 100 Trail Run and was very pleased. While its fairly heavy, it's well balanced and allowed me to see every rock in the trail on the technical sections. Psyched to have this piece of gear in my kit for all night expeditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by waterproof is not so great I went caving in Belize. First day out, first few minutes into the cave we had to pass under a low flowing water fall, immediately the light shut down. Thankfully i had a backup. I discovered that the water went into to the led lights and they shorted. i have since returned this item and await a replacement. August 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very powerful light but like another reviewer, the battery door failed because the plastic tabs are thin and cracked. I replaced one at REI and then when they second one failed, I just returned it and bought another light. While I had it, it was great, just wish the battery case was better designed. I have bought at least 6 other Black Diamond lights over the years and this is the only that has failed to last. If they redesign the battery cast so that it is more robust, I will get another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice lightweight headlamp. Great features. I did search for a vid so I could learn how to use it. The microscopic paper with instructions which came in the box did not serve me well. I like the headlamp much better now that I can operate it. June 10, 2014
