DescriptionOur go-to headlamp for everything from midweek dawn patrols to all-night rappelling sessions, the Black Diamond Spot now features an incredible 300 lumens of adjustable light with a fully waterproof construction. In addition to its reliable, precise and powerful beam for spotting anchors or trail cairns, the Spot’s redesigned lighting profile offers improved peripheral lighting for close-range activities like cooking, reading or sorting gear, while simultaneously increasing the overall brightness. The Spot also features our Brightness Memory, which allows you to turn the light on and off at a chosen brightness without reverting back to full power. Seven different lighting modes, including red night vision, allow for fully custom lighting in any situation, and our PowerTap Technology makes for instant brightness adjustments.
- One QuadPower LED and one DoublePower white LED emit 300 lumens
- Red SinglePower LED for night vision has dimming and strobe settings and activates without cycling through white mode
- PowerTap™ Technology allows instant transitioning between full and dimmed power
- Sleek, low-profile design uses three AAA batteries
- Brightness Memory allows you to turn the light on and off at a chosen brightness without reverting back to full power
- Settings include full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night-vision and lock mode
- IPX8: Waterproof-Tested to operate up to 1.1 meters underwater for 30 minutes. If submerged, water may enter the battery compartment and it will still operate, and it should be dried out completely afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noah from Perfect packable light I've stopped questioning whether to bring a light or not, just stash the spot in the pack or jacket and go. It's so light you won't notice it and it's bright enough to actually get you out in the dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tobin from My favourite headlamp I use the Spot for everything from trying to find keys when I lose them at the bottom of my bag, to skiing at night, to month long expeditions. I've got a few of these stashed in various packs and one in my truck, it's small and light and deals well with getting knocked around and wet so you can always have it along and not worry about forgetting it. I never want to get caught out without one, because when you need a light you really need a light!

Rated 5 out of 5 by handsomerobinson from One for every backpack This is my go to headlamp, I literally bought one for each of my different backpacks so I’m never without one. I love the dimming features; on a dark night you can turn it down and save energy, Bright when you need it. Super stupid simple to use, no unnesessary features that get really annoying when all you need is a light that works every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hazel Findlay from Great features - everything you need I love the dimming feature and the tap to full beam. Make sure you take a minute to read the blurb and learn the features because you might be missing something. Swapping between modes is much easier on this headtorch than other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carlo Traversi from Don't Leave Home Without It I have a few of these stashed throughout my various climbing bags and kits. As with any BD headlamps I firmly believe that they are the absolute best on the market. The amount of features packed into one of these little things is crazy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 262mbh from Works great but.......... The light came with a yellow spot in the middle of the beam. Not cool at all. However, BD made it right and sent me a new one. So i gave 5 Stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by AW68 from Great all around light I use mine for everything. Camping, hiking, fishing, and astronomy. The red light is great for preserving night vision while stargazing. The wide-angle light is great for in the tent or around camp. The main light takes care of everything else. Mine seems to stay wet, and I have never had a problem. The last 30 minutes coming off the water during my last fishing trip, was at night in a thunderstorm. Spot held up great.
