Black Diamond Spot Headlamp - Preview
This is the Black Diamond Spot Headlamp Preview.
Note: the 2013 model has 90 Lumens, the 2014 model offers 130 Lumens and about the same battery life.
Both are great choices, although for the extra few bucks go ahead and get the 130-Lumen model. When you comparison shop, be sure which Lumen rating you're buying).
If you are interested in this head lamp, please know that there are two version of this on the market at this time. There is a 90 lumen version which I have here and there is an updated 2014 version. The difference between the 2013 and the 2014 versions is the lumens (90 v. 130) and the advertised distance of the light (70m v. 75m).
Based on what I have seen in reviews, the 90 lumen model may be the better choice when it comes to performance and ease of use. We will review the new model in the future.
Price : On Amazon the price varies on the color but you're looking to pay around $35 dollars.
