Seven different settings, from spotlight to proximity lighting, and a faceted reflector that maximizes the distance of the beam, give you the best options for long- and close-range lighting. Powered by 4 AA batteries or the fully rechargeable NGR battery, the Icon has power meter indicators that let you know when you're above 50 percent power, above 20 percent power, and when you're about to run out of power and are below 20 percent. Like most Black Diamond headlamps, the Icon is protected against splashing and water spray from any angle.

Well I can toss my lantern. The Black Diamond Icon surpasses the lantern in both brightness and burn time. I've used the same batteries for 10 days(3-4 hours per night). The 3 watt spot is a brighter and more focused beam. I'm able to read id numbers further away. The four led area light is bright enough for work up to about 100ft.Both the beam and area lights have 3 levels of brightness which helps with battery life. I also have the added bonus of both hands free. So far pouring rain, splattered mud and subzero temps haven't fazed it. I have two nit picks... The on/off switch is on the bottom of the lamp which makes it cumbersome to operate with a baseball cap on and the lens on the beam scratches easier than I thought it would. That's just nitpicky though. I highly recommend this light.
I discovered that Black Diamond headlamps have a 3 year warranty, so I followed the directions on their website and mailed it to them. I wasn't sure what to expect, but within a few weeks, a replacement arrived at my door, no questions asked, no charge.
The brightness is unbelievable for some led's. The 7 settings/brightness levels took a bit to get used to,, I even had to get out the manual to learn how to do it, lol. After that its a breeze to change any setting on the go.
Another option that surprised me was that the top band is easily removable, I didnt know about that ahead of time, but it comes in handy when you want to put the headlamp on over a winter hat.
I havent yet been able to test the longevity of the battery life, but as we all know that have read about this lamp it has outstanding reviews for that. Im still on my original set of lithiums, and after about 80 hours of use, the battery meter is still at top.
I bought this headlamp for a Kilimanjaro trip, and was overwhelmed by its results. Out of 75 people going up during summit night, it was the brightest headlamp of any of them. It got to the point that the guide in front of me stayed close and turned his headlamp off to save his battery power; all that on the lowest beam setting!
For the $10 more that it cost for this headlamp than the other same brand (or competitors), its a no-brainer to buy this one instead.
Wow, this lamp is awesome, providing plenty of light while strongly holding it's position on my head whether I wear a hat or not. The fit is very comfortable despite the battery pack. The weight is nothing to worry about as I can wear it for hours with no discomfort. The batteries are clipped firmly in place by a very well made, xlnt fitting door. I purchased the rechargeable battery pack as well and have used it in addition to the regular batteries. Both work great. I can even use the pack while it is charging which makes the light even more useful for my circumstances. The charge port is well hidden and quite dust and saliva proof! Lots of dental dust and saliva get all over this lamp. It remains to be seen how it holds up after months of all this abuse but the headlamp seems to be made very well. I have high expectations based on what I have experienced so far. I never felt like anything was "cheesy" about the "Icon" when I removed it from the box, fitted it to my head, and began using it under my rather un-ordinary circumstances. I can honestly say, if this lamp holds up to the abuse I have put it through, then a few crashes on my moutain bike, several clunks in the head while rock climbing, or the dust of a night ORV ride should be no problem.
I love the Icon and highly recommend it! In fact, I'm buying more for the practice today!

This headlamp is as advertised over all. The one improvement that is needed would be making the on/off switch a bit easier to feel, especially when wearing gloves.Published 9 days ago by Lanier J Holcombe III
