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 QuadPower LED setting and its 160 Lumen output casts a beam up to 229 feet! By adjusting to the two SinglePower 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.
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.
Available in your choice of color options, the Black Diamond Storm requires four AAA alkaline batteries (included). Even with the batteries, the headlamp weighs only 4.8 ounces.

Real Customer Reviews
Likes: Perfect amount of light for walking in the woods in the dark. I've used it on nighttime bike rides too. The different lighting features and brightness levels work good to read in the tent.
Likes: Love this headlight. It has a super bright spot but can be tamed down or go to a softer light for close up work. Rugged and light weight.
Dislikes: No dislikes.
Likes: I like that this headlamp has great dimmer control for all three light options (high white, low white, and red). It gets very bright and very dim. Fairly easy to use and a relatively short learning curve.
Dislikes: Don't care for the additional "tap to dim" feature yet. It sometimes dims when I didn't tap, but I'm still learning. The only other thing would be the 4th battery... nothing horrible and it does add to the longer live due to the brightness, but it is something more to carry unless your forgoing the back-ups.
Likes: It's bright efficient and was just what I needed for night alpine ascents.
Dislikes: The button to turn it off and on, change modes, was difficult to activate with gloves on.
Likes: Sweet product. Extremely bright focused lighting. Also the softer proximity lighting was very nice
Dislikes: It is heavier than my other lamps, but not overly so. It took a few nights to get used to the proper sequencing of buttons to adjust the various feature.
Likes: This is my second purchase of this head lamp and it works just as good as my 1st one, very happy all around with its performance/brightness/longevity/durability.
Dislikes: Sometimes working the headlamp from the red night vision back to the main white led can be a bit tricky but it just takes some practice.
Likes: Excellent user interface to change lighting options and the 160 lumens provides excellent visibilty.
Dislikes: Nothing everything was as expected excellent quality.
Likes: After trying a few different headlamps, i came across this one as a recommendation from Dave. Great decision on this purchase. The Storm is now my favorite LED Headlamp-fits comfortable-very bright-easy to use as it takes some time getting use to tapping n holding down to select different functions of the light, I thought it would be more difficult to figure out but it only took about 5 minutes along with reading the directions. Battery life is great/night vision is awesome- something i always use/ - I will be purchasing another one..
Likes: quality construction, easy to operate, BIRGHT light.
Dislikes: It's all around great.
