HEADLAMPS

Black Diamond Spot 325 $84.99 / 325 lumens / 80m / 86g

Features: Three light modes – two white lights and a red light. There’s a large on/off button and a second smaller button which cycles between the three light modes. It’s powered by thee AAA batteries, offering a run time of 4hr on high (8hr on medium, 200hr on low). There’s also a transport lock and a strobe. Holding the large button dims and brightens the light. The PowerTap function allows you to tap the side of the lamp to instantly go back to full brightness. Tap again to revert to the dimmed setting. A battery indicator shows remaining battery life and an IPX8 rating makes it waterproof to 1m. 5/5

Comfort: With the batteries housed in the lamp, it’s a front-heavy model but any bounce is not pronounced. The headband needed to be tightened more than I would like to keep it in position and this meant, over longer use, it started to feel uncomfortable. The headband is easy to adjust on-the-go. 4/5

The large on/off button is easy to find
