Black Diamond Spot 325 Reviewed By: Jody H on 02/04/2018 Rating: 5 of 5 Stars!

I have owned my Black Diamond Spot for less than two months now and I am very impressed with it. It is extremely well made, looks great, and performs as advertised.

The only thing I would change are the battery life ratings which seem to vary from one website to another (and even within the same site). I got a full charge in 3 hours and 40 minutes. That’s pretty good considering I was using it at night when no other lights were around.

But then again, I had been running my headlamp all day long during the day time so maybe that extra boost helped me get through the dark period.

If you’re looking for something that will give you a little bit of extra visibility while still being fairly durable, this is definitely the way to go. You won’t regret getting one. Thanks Black Diamond!

The Black Diamond Spot Headlamp is a great product for the money. It seems to be pretty durable so far and is way brighter than I will ever need it. I love the red night vision mode too!
