Like most Black Diamond headlamps, the Icon is protected against splashing and water spray from any angle.

Very bright light.
The Black Diamond Icon headlamp has been used by friends who run the Iditarod, these new Alumium models are the best I have seen yet at a reasonable cost.

I own the black diamond storm, that uses 4 AAA batteries and gives 100 lumens. I mainly use the light for cycling at night in addition to gearing up for night dives.

The Icon 200 lumens is brighter in every mode, including the red night vision mode. However, as noted in other reviews, the center spot is not as focused and gives a wider area of cover. For cycling this works actually great as more of the road is covered. In heavy mist and rain it can cause a bit of light to be reflected back and the light not to be able to penetrate far, however, for normal every day use it is perfect. With the wider beam it makes it also easier to find gear when looking around as i find my vision tends to get focused when using a narrow beam light.

At first i thought the unit would be uncomfortable with the larger batteries, but it is actually more comfortable than the smaller unit that carries the lighting unit and the batteries in one housing. The only thing about the light that worries me is the simple catch that closes and holds the lid on the battery compartment, i have my doubts as to how long it will hold, as it does not seem robust, but i may be wrong there.

All in all a very good light and very powerful, but does take up some space to carry. The black diamond storm is a very powerful light that can easily slip into a pants pocket or clove box for when needed.

Review update.
I normally cycle at night alone, but did a ride with a friend the other night that had forgotten her light at home. The Icon had a large enough beam to light up the road easily for both of us cycling next to each other, without me needing to turn my head in her direction. Highly recommended for cycling and walking.

I first would like to say I've never owned a Black Diamond headlight before and will not argue model superiority. Initially I was between this model and the Princeton Tec Apex Re-Chargeable. However, first I need to address the other reviewer's statement on here about the light not shining at your feet. Seriously, you must be wearing the light directly on top of your head. I can easily get the light to hit about 3 feet away from me w/o looking down. You clearly are not wearing the lamp correctly or maybe you just want the light to tilt straight down, either way- the light goes where you need it to. Nuff said...

I also won't go into lamp details because if you're reading this, you're probably smart enough to also read the specs listed on here and on the BD website for yourself, also, it's a user review! Although I will re-state what others have said that this is one extremely bright headlight. As in, my girlfriend got really pissed when I showed her how bright 200 lumens can be inside our living room- during a sunny afternoon. Second, after reading the instructions for about 5 minutes, it's quite simple and easy to operate with just one hand. I had no problems going from white to red and then to strobe mode. Both the side white LED's and the red LED's will strobe in there brightest setting. One thing I want to clarify is that while it does turn back on to the color you left it in, it WILL change to the opposite white bulb/bulbs you were not previously using. So if you turn it off after using the two side "proximity" LED's, the next time it will turn on to the single super bright "distance" LED. From there it only takes another click to bring it to the other mode. I love the lock out feature that's incorporated into the battery life indicator bulb.

I work nights at a railroad. Typically we use the standard issue 6volt lantern for lighting and signals. I need to see id numbers and the train cars themselves at a distance. I judge all lights vs the railroad lantern with the halogen bulb- Bright and 8 hours+ usable light.
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 bought two of these headlamps to replace two older Black Diamond headlamps that had served me well for many years. The elastic failed and I thought replacing them with newer and brighter Black Diamond headlamps was a no-brainer. I immediately noticed that the thumbscrew for tightening down the battery cover was difficult to fully tighten. It was much smaller than on my older lamp. In addition, between the two I own, one has a smaller, more difficult to use thumbscrew. Furthermore, one of the headlamps I initially ordered was defective. Thankfully Amazon replaced it without much trouble. I have owned these headlamps for about a 1.5 years now and am not pleased with the long-term durability. On the headlamp with the smaller screw, the battery case is cracking all along the edges. It seems like the top cover is just a hair too small. Combine that with the fact that the plastic is very thin and overtime hairline fractures begin to form. I've put tape over the cracking areas to try and prolong the inevitable failure of the battery case at which point the product will become un-usable because the strap is connected to the battery cover on one side and the battery case on the other side.

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.
