Equipped with a fully waterproof construction and an incredibly bright 160 lumens, the Black Diamond Storm is our powerful, all-conditions headlamp. Now featuring our PowerTap Technology, the Storm allows for quick, on-the-fly brightness adjustment with just a finger tap to the side of its touch-sensitive housing. The Storm features a bright, precise beam for after-dark route-finding, as well as proximity, strobe, dimming and red night vision modes to accommodate any lighting needs. An intuitive lock mode also keeps the light from accidentally turning on when stored in your pack or pocket.

  • One QuadPower LED, two SinglePower white LEDs and two SinglePower red LEDs emit 160 lumens (max setting)
  • PowerTap technology allows fast and simple transitioning between full and dimmed power in distance or proximity modes
  • Red night-vision mode has proximity and strobe settings, and activates without cycling through the white mode
  • Sleek, low profile design uses four AAA batteries and three-level power meter shows remaining battery life for three seconds after switching on headlamp
  • Settings include: full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night vision and lock mode
  • Protected against water immersion down to 1 m (3.3 ft) for 30 minutes (IPX 7)

Recommended Use


Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to use, adjusts angle easily and simple to adjust brightness Use the headlamp for work every shift, it has a great battery life and is very robust. The only improvement would be to have a longer lasting elastic, the torch itself is so well built the head band wears out before the lamp. December 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Head Lamp I've used this a couple of times so far, not only on the trail but to work on my car when I do light auto work, what a time saver not having to deal with a drop light, definitely a great buy. December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by light and bright This headlamp is the light for me very compact and bright battery life lasts a long time. I have found myself using the PowerTab a lot and find it very useful. November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Headlamp Very lightweight, comfortable to wear, very bright, excellent front and peripheral projection. November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light for any night adventures The Locking Feature is probably the best addition from prior models. It prevents the light from turning on in my back pack. This simple feature ensures that the batteries are fresh when you need them! I was climbing in Red Rocks a month ago and my partners batteries in an older style BD Spot were DOA when we started rapping off after sunset. The spot light function is great for locating rappel anchors at night and the LED is good for checking your systems before going on rappel. The red LED is nice around camp. I have used the Storm in the pouring rain and keep it in my leaky "dry" bag on rafting trips and it still works great (listed as waterproof/ weatherproof). All around a well thought out high-quality headlight. November 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good product Very happy with this headlamp. It's a little heavier than others due to the extra battery but I expected that and bought it because of the power and longevity. Use this on Search and Rescue Missions where a good headlamp can make all the difference. November 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This thing goes everywhere with me This headlamp is perfect, I bring it with me every time I go out climbing, or do anything outdoors for that matter. The bright beam is bright enough to spot rappel anchors with ease while descending in the dark and the powertap feature makes it easy to avoid blinding my partners when we are on a belay ledge. I also love the lockout feature so I don't accidentally turn it on in my pack. November 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid and versitile with all the right features. I bought this headlamp because it was one of the only waterproof models available (my last one died because I dropped it in salt water...). It seems to be constructed very well and with 4 AAA's it's maybe even a bit heavy but still compact all things considered. The one button functionality takes a few dedicated minutes to figure out but overall works great! I really love the locking function to save the light from accidently turning on. Red LED's are essential and work well. Spot style long range light is super bright and dimming feature is nice for reading. So far so good... we'll see how it stands the test of time, ocean and mountain conditions. Keep up the good work BD! November 17, 2014
