This thing is small, lightweight and illuminates the darkest trails in pitch black conditions. Light has an adjustable tilt that can illuminate trail floor or further out depending on the terrain. I run on a trail and love the faces of bikers when they realize my little light is brighter than their car battery handlebar mounted version. Well if they can see, usually they are just blinded which results in what I call "Squinty mole face". There is no light this size that is brighter or that you would want to be brighter for running. You can even dim it if desired, the squinty mole face bikers will be thankful.
The rear blinking red light is also great. Unfortunately it does not make a sound when moving in reverse but it is highly visible even for terrible Seattle drivers in rainy poor visibility conditions. You can turn it off if desired. I personally wear it with red light blinking indoors to announce the fact I intend on going for a run, (my wife does not know I can turn it off).
Since it is rechargeable I save a lot of money on batteries. Have not tested the life of the charge to the limit but I have not really had to. This also contributes to it being light weight, I usually forget I have it on.
Even if I bring it on hikes I likely could get by with one charge. If you are into long camping trips without access to a recharge there are other diamondback versions of this that would be better for you (Bulkier but battery operated).
As said by many others, this is the most comfortable headlamp for running I've used. It sits well, doesn't bounce, and doesn't bother me at all.
The strength of the light works decently well for road running, but it's not quite enough for my trail running. For the trails near me (central California coast; single track on hard-packed dirt, with some exposed roots), I go about 30 seconds/mile slower than I do in the daytime (9:00/mi vs. 8:30/mi on flat sections) since I can't see as far ahead. This means I can only run hard on the uphills, but not the flats.
Finally, it's annoying that when the batteries are low, the light suddenly turns off and can't be turned on without being charged again. This happened to me during a workout, and it was difficult to make my way back with no light. There is a small LED indicator of the battery level when you turn the light on, but it's a little difficult to interpret. Now I try to charge it every ~3 hours of use, even though it should get more. A better low-battery warning / low-battery dimmed mode would be helpful, rather than suddenly stopping.
UPDATE: My original unit recently stopped working properly (the rear lights wouldn't turn off, except when it was charging), but fortunately Black Diamond has great customer service. Within a week of filing a warranty claim, they had shipped a new unit to my house. I didn't need to pay the shipping, and the process was very simple. Exactly what I would hope for. The responsive, effective customer service is enough for me to bump my review to 5 stars, despite the minor shortcomings noted above.
I think the light will serve me well on longer runs as well, but I won't say for sure until I start hitting 12 miles or so. I think it will also be adequate for easier trail runs, but I'll take a hand-held light along my first time, just in case.
I did a lot of research before I picked out this headlamp for running, reading reviews and asking in forums. Experienced distance runners seem to largely agree this is the headlamp you want, and if have to say they are right!
I got this to help me prepare for a Ragnar Relay, and I will be recommending this headlamp to my teammates.
Note: I have ordered all my Sprinters through Amazon. My first replacement device had a non-functioning rear light; exchange with Amazon customer service was fast and hassle-free.
