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)

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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best I have found I use this headlamp for tramping and for urban search and rescue. This headlamp is the best that I have found. I have both the current (2014 version) and the previous version. It has an excellent control logic, including locking, separate red / white light modes, powertap and easy dimming). The new logic improves on the old logic (press to turn on then quick press to change from white beam to white flood) and the powertap technology is incredibly useful, allowing to change from powersaving low light level to a high light level in an instant. Many lights require you to cycle through light settings with button presses - normally very annoying if you only want to use red light. This has the ability to switch between the red light (on/off/flash) and white (beam/flood/flash/dim) by holding down the button for two seconds. The light lock also helps to make sure it doesn't accidentally turn on. The new version has made the button slightly less tactil (slightly harder to press and you can't feel the click as much), however it is certainly not as bad as others I have tried and it is still easy to press/hold. The only change I think would improve it would be to remember the last dim setting now that it has the powertap technology allowing you to change from full to dimmed in an instant - I normally change it to the lowest dim setting (or near to it) as soon as I turn it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Head Lamp I'm really impressed with the quality and power of this lamp. The option of turning the red leds on without cycling through the white ones is great. Its versatility really amazed me. Camping's just got brighter. Kudos November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile Just used it the first time at overnight K9 Search and Rescue training. The spot light was great for hiking/searching and being able to see my dog as she ranged in the woods. The proximity lights were useful for setting up camp and map reading. I used the red lights during cooking and group meetings to not blind the others. We did get rained on with no issues to the light. November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Headlamp I bought this headlamp specifically for use on my local SAR team and for summit trips on mountains. This headlamp is super bright but can also dim down to be almost off. Great functionality and definitely fits it's purpose. It's exactly what I needed. October 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Investment For The Price This headlamp has served me well on multiple hikes and backpacking trips in all weather conditions. You can't beat the quality for the pricing, and it easily blows away the competition. I'm very satisfied and I would confidently purchase any of their products. October 28, 2014
