Black Diamond Storm Headlamp

Guide Pick™: Dave Hahn, Seth Waterfall



The waterproof, multiple-mode, 160-lumen Storm is designed with PowerTap Technology, to transition between full and dimmed power at the tap of a finger to its touch-sensitive housing.

Equipped with a fully waterproof construction and an incredibly bright 160 lumens, the Black Diamond Storm is a powerful, all-conditions headlamp. Now featuring Black Diamond's PowerTap Technology, the Storm allows for quick, on-the-fly brightness adjustment with just a finger tap to the side of its touch-sensitive housing. The Storm features a bright, precise beam for after-dark route-finding, as well as proximity, strobe, dimming and red night vision modes to accommodate any lighting needs. An intuitive lock mode also keeps the light from accidentally turning on when stored in your pack or pocket.

This is a game changer in the headlamp world. 100 lumens of high quality light and decently water resistant construction for fifty bucks! In the two weeks that I've had mine, it has quickly become my favorite headlamp.
