Boasting rugged waterproof construction and an array of features the Black Diamond Storm headlamp delivers 350 Lumens of illumination and reliable performance for a broad range of outdoor activities.
The headlamp’s highest setting employs a QuadPower LED and a DoublePower white LED to cast a bright beam over 262 feet! You can increase efficiency by adjusting the LED setting and dialing down brightness to achieve a maximum burn time of 160 hours. You can choose between proximity and distance modes and a strobe setting comes in handy in emergencies. Red green and blue SinglePower LED bulbs can be used to preserve night vision. An integrated dimmer switch allows you to fine-tune brightness in whatever mode you are using. Convenient PowerTap technology delivers on-the-fly brightness adjustment and a Brightness Memory enables you to turn the headlamp on and off and return to the setting you were last using rather than having to always toggle through modes. A locking function allows you to prevent the light from accidentally turning on when stowed inside your pack.
The headlamp is powered by four AAA Alkaline batteries (included). With the batteries the Storm weighs 3.9 ounces. An elastic headband adjusts to enhance comfort and ensure that the headlamp remains securely in place while in use. The hinged housing lets you angle the beam as needed for the situation. The housing has an IP67rating that ensures fully waterproof and dustproof protection.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great light
Likes: Easy to adjust the headband and brightness. The memory function is great, as is the locking feature. Excellent battery life eases the mind while doing extensive night hiking.
Dislikes: The powertap button on the housing is a great feature, but can be finicky. It usually takes flicking it a few times to get it to work
- This is very versatile headlamp suitable for various activities. Very happy with this purchase.
Likes: Light is very bright and intensity can be dimmed. I like the options for a white, red, green, blue or strobe light. Headlamp is high quality and lightweight. Long battery life. The head strap is comfortable.
Dislikes: I like everything about this product.
- Overall Great Headlamp
Likes: Being Waterproof makes it nice to not have to worry about hiking in the rain at night.
The battery life on full power is 40 hrs!
Taping the right side of the lamp to immediately turn on max brightness is very convenient
Dislikes: The downside to the great battery life is that it takes 4 AAA batteries. Not only does this add weight, but the lamp section is more bulky than my other black diamond headlamp which I lost.
- Waterproof Headlamp Covers Your Bases
Likes: This headlamp gave me all the flexibility and options I needed. I particularly like the waterproof design. I would have to search for a long time to find another headlamp that offers so many features. Its weight is nothing compared to its features.
Dislikes: On batteries
Likes: Bright light, easy to use
Dislikes: Wish it came with a small travel bag or something to protect it.
- Great light! lightweight fairly waterproof.
Likes: Multiple options for brightness to dimming.
Colored LEDs for nighttime approaches.
easy to forget programming.
- Strong, Sturdy and Dependable
Likes: Different light modes make it easy to switch depending on your situation. It has a sturdier case than most headlamps and able to take quite a bit of rain.
Dislikes: It is a bit heavier than other lamps.
Likes: Always works well, waterproof, and long lasting battery
Dislikes: Doesn't always stay on my head correctly
- Well built
Likes: I likes this lamp for it's durability and features. The touch light system is really convenient when extra lighting is needed. The brightness level is very good with fresh batteries which last a reasonable amount of time.
Though a little bulky it becomes less noticeable the longer it's worn. The wieght comes from it's ability to perform in harsh conditions rinse and repeat.
Dislikes: Perhaps a top strap to balance the lamp like the black diamond icon series.
