Product Highlights

Providing powerful brightness and varied lighting levels and settings in a fully waterproof housing, the Black Diamond Storm is a versatile headlamp that delivers both long-distance beam and close-proximity options for climbing, mountaineering, caving or backpacking.

The large TriplePower LED setting and its 100 Lumen output casts a beam up to 299 feet! By adjusting to the four smaller LED setting, you can maximize efficiency, achieving a maximum burn time of 200 hours. Additional settings provide a strobe light for emergency signaling and dual red LED bulbs for preserving night vision.

The Storm requires four Alkaline AAA batteries (included). Even with the batteries, the Storm weighs only 3.7 ounces.

An elastic headband adjusts to enhance comfort and ensure that the Storm remains securely in place while in use. The waterproof housing of the Storm provides all-condition performance and is hinged so you can angle the beam as needed for the conditions and the task at hand. A locking function allows you to prevent the Storm from accidentally turning on when stowed inside your pack.

The Black Diamond Storm headlamp is available in your choice of color options.

  • Brandon D. Vail CO

    Likes: Awesome product and the amazing customer service you've come to expect from Black Diamond. Housing was starting to crack on the white version of the storm with no fault of mine. BD exchanged the faulty unit with little to no hassle. Waterproof!

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Lin D. Arlington TX

    Likes: Oops, I just wrote the wrong info on another product! This headlamp is awesome. Bright, adjustable to dim, has flashing emergency features, and tilts. It also offer standby mode to save on your battery.

    Dislikes: Not much other than getting use to wearing a headband and mussing up our hairs (we like our girly girl hairs LOL).

  • . tobyhanna PA

    Likes: So bright and powerful. I highly recommend this headlamp. Hard to find a better one for the price. Has a low battery indicator.

    Dislikes: Controls are confusing at first.

  • Perry L. Harrisburg PA

    Likes: I bought the Black Diamond Storm Headlamp specifically to use for trail running. Even more specifically I got it to use during the Laurel Highlands Ultra. My previous light seemed to give me headaches no matter how much I adjusted the strap and the hinge on the battery compartment had broken and it simply wasn't as bright as I felt I needed it to be. I played with the Storm in a local shop and read the specs online. The strap is comfy and the light boasts 100 lumens of illumination which was perfect for the pitch black forest I was running in(the last 13 miles of 70.5). Pretty neat dimmer feature & the light tilts on a ratchet so you can adjust the throw of the beam.

    Dislikes: My only complaint is that I'd like the main light to light with the small ones on either side. If it does work that way, I haven't figured it out yet.

  • Nicholas D. Franklin NC

  • sandra m. sun prairie WI

    Likes: This product was light weight but very powerful. The value was great too. So happy i went with the black diamond as opposed to the other brands.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • . Coos Bay OR

    Likes: This lamp has a very user friendly interface. The spot is very bright and is all one would need for primary lighting. The two side flood L.E.D lights give off a very nice light that is bright,soft and even, great for lighting the whole area around you while putting up a tent in the dark. This lamp can be switched to the night vision red light mode and turned on and off in this mode without having to go through the white light setting which is very nice if you are trying to preserve your night vision. Easy to get to power button,battery indicator and tilting lamp feature are nice. Many other features but the bottom line is a great lamp,especially for the price.

    Dislikes: None so far with the limited use so far.

  • Patrick I. Cerritos CA

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: It's an awesome light. It had more cool features that were described on your or Black Diamonds website. Specifically, I wasn't aware that it had a dimming feature on both light settings. This will be a great power saver. I'm looking forward to using it for years to come.

    Dislikes: Nothing that I've found so far.
