Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary Very useful
I bought this product for night fishing but have found it invaluable for projects around the house. As a retired Eye Doctor I find the bright white light makes a real difference for those who are more mature. I bought 2 for the beach house and immediately bought 2 more for the other house. No tool box should be without one. Great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mark Bright Illumination, Slight Annoyances
This headlamp casts an impressively bright beam, yet still manages great battery life. That said, a few things keep me from loving it. The mechanism for adjusting the beam angle feels flimsy and slips easily. Worse, since the lamp toggles between spot and flood mode every other time it turns on, you only have a 50% chance of getting your desired light mode the first time. The is particularly troublesome, as button is difficult to operate while wearing gloves. It's a nice headlamp, but leaves plenty of room for improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alex Great headlamp, decent construction
I own three of these, and use them all the time. BD has been great about sending replacement brackets that connect the headlamp to the headband... but therein lies the problem. Seems that using a plastic just slightly thicker and stronger would make this a much more durable lamp. Nonetheless, I do have 3, and use them from plumbing in the crawlspace to midnight tree skiing.

i wore this while climbing in Ecuador, Antisana and Cotopoxi. i like the fact it was really light weight and cast a beam you can see from space. my partner who was leading on Antisana kept asking me to illuminate areas his light couldn't reach. Battery life is excellent as well, perfect for early morning starts.;

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jarrod Does it all.
I purchased the Spot two years ago primarily to have a lighter lamp for night runs. This lamp has become my go to essential equipment to keep in my truck, keep in the house, and make every trip with. The battery life is very good lasting through a week of trips when using dimming and keeping the spotlight to necessary use only. The beam is bright when you need it, red lamp when you don't want to burn your night vision, and the dimming function is great! I have used it in extreme heat and below zero temps and it keeps on running. Makes a great gift for anyone who loves the outdoors, or just needs a good light!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jared Great Customer service for quality product
I purchased a Spot headlamp two years ago and have used it for backpacking and hunting mostly. I was greatly satisfied with the headlamp until i was checking on my gear a few weeks ago and found my spot headlamp with a broken hinge piece. I put the headlamp in a bin with other camping gear a few months ago intact and hadn't really been rummaging through the bin which could have broken the head lamp. I contacted Black Diamond and told them of my problem and was contacted the next day. Black diamond not only said that they would send me a new Spot, they also told me to keep the old one as a spare in case of emergency. 3 stars for the product but 5 for their customer service and backing up their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bryce Never fails to impress
I picked up an older gen Spot back in 2007 and I've never had any problems. This lamp has shed light on everything from cutting firewood to pounding tent pegs in the sleet to working under my car. It's never failed to help me see where I'm going.
