I was looking for a headlamp to use for trail running at night. There are several night trail races coming up, in addition to a lot of running on roads at night. I wanted a good quality, bright headlamp that would get the job done on trails, but not cost TOO much. I was mainly considering Petzl and Black Diamond lights. I purchased a Petzl Tikka Plus 2 and the Black Diamond Spot. I'd say the Petzl definitely has a higher quality of construction, but that doesn't mean I'm saying that the construction of the Black Diamond is bad. It still seems to be very solidly built and durable. I do have concerns about the durability of the plastic piece that holds the light at a tilted angle. I've heard that was an issue on the slightly older version of the Spot. After inspecting it in person though, it seems like it will hold up just fine. The overall quality and feel of the BD Spot seems great. The light pattern of the Spot is very good, with no weird shadows or spots, just a nice white round circle. And it is BRIGHT! I didn't think this would appear that much brighter than the Petzl Tikka Plus 2 (which is 50 lumens), but the Black Diamond Spot (which is 90 lumens) is much brighter than the Petzl. It's not even a comparison. As far as the strap and how the light feels while running, they are about the same, with a secure feeling and no bobbing at all. Both lights are great, but I just needed the extra light output for running trails at night, so I'm keeping the Spot, and returning the Petzl. The lower power white flood light, red light, and infinitely dimmable output is an added bonus. And I think the controls of the Spot are very easy to use. Hope this helps!

I use this for running in the mountains at night. I have tried many headlamps and for me this is the best. Light weight and does not bob on the forehead when running. Very bight light with a wide bright center spot that is free of aberrations or any rings. I have also tried out the Black Diamond Storm. The storms light pattern is the same as the Spot and any brightness difference not noticeable. I found that the Storm was heavier and more prone to bobbing. The Storm also did not rotate a full 90 degrees and the storms clear light cover protrudes from the case just a bit and light is visible out of the sides which is very distracting while running.

I bought this headlamp for the sole purpose of taking late night walks with my dogs. I have two (2) large breed dogs, both of whom are rather young. The math works like this:

Poop bags + two (2) leashes + handheld flashlight + darkness + need to poop = TROUBLE

I decided to get a headlamp to free up my hands for doing my civic "doody" and cleaning up after my dogs. I considered several Petzl models and the Black Diamond Spot. After 2-3 weeks with the product, here's my thoughts.

PROS:

The primary light (90 lumens) is great, even on foggy nights. It beats any incandescent flashlight that I have -- two (2) different models of MagLite. The ability to dim the primary light is great. Just press and hold the button until you get the right light level.

The secondary light (2 LEDs) is great if you don't want to look 100' up the street. I find that I use this light the most when I'm with my dogs because I don't want to blind them with the primary light.

The headband is comfortable enough, and it has plenty of room for adjustment depending on how big/small your head is.

The controls, contrary to many reviews here, are simple enough. 3 seconds alternates between the red LEDs and the primary / secondary white LEDs. 6 seconds locks and unlocks the headlamp function. Triple click and you get flashing secondary white LEDs or the red LEDs. Press and hold, as noted above, on the white LEDs to dim and un-dim them. Take 10 minutes to learn them, and you'll be fine.

The battery indicator is cool -- I forget it's there, though. After 2-3 weeks of evening use, I've not had any dimming of the headlamp, so I think the AAA batteries (included) are still going strong.

I use the Black Diamond Spot Headlamp all the time for Cross Country skiing in the dark Alaskan winter nights. The high intensity setting produces a 15 foot diameter circle of light at 25 feet, I don't ever feel uncomfortable with terrain while I am using it. I typically ski for about an hour, and I've used the light 15 times this winter and have not had to replace the batteries yet. The elastic band is comfortable and maintains good pressure. I haven't had any issues with the plastic clip not holding the light in the position that I want it in. I would and have recommended this headlamp to my friends.

Bought this headlamp several months ago and couldn't be happier. The battery life is very good (I used energizer lithiums batteries). The brightness is unparalleled from any headlamp I have used in the past, the white light great and has really good coverage, the red light is better than average for night movements. My only critique is a very minor one and its that if you don't read the instructions you won't understand the full functionality of this piece of equipment. It has some great, very workable features that were incredibly useful in live-fire combat tactical settings, prolonged and intense military training environments, and while hiking and long distance pack-in camping. I have used this as my sole white and red light source in some very taxing and difficult situations and so far it has always come through as a great piece of equipment. Buy this, it is a tremendous value and a very useful bit of gear.
