This Black Diamond headlamp is one of the best companions for camping, trail running, or, their original specialty, making a mountain approach before dawn. It is great for a range of tasks both close-up and far away.

Emitting 350 lumens (hence the name), the Spot 350 serves you with a long-range spotlight reaching up to 85 feet. Its other settings include a floodlight for near-distance use, a strobe light for signaling, and red light (ideal for nighttime reading).

If you stay on dimmed mode all the time, your headlamp’s power can take you through dark trails for up to 200 hours!

You can easily switch through these modes with the help of two smart-tap buttons. You might need time to get used to this system. But once you’re comfortable with it, it’s a time-saver.

The strap of this Black Diamond headlamp is your traditional wraparound. Considering its weight, it offers a comfy fit when in use.

With a water resistant IPX8 rating it will be safe for shallow underwater (max depth: 3 feet) use for a half hour. That basically means it’ll survive a dunk but you should probably still rescue it quickly if it falls into a stream or pond. Rain won’t be a problem for the Spot.

The Black Diamond Spot 350 is a powerful all-around headlamp. And if you’ve been a fan of Black Diamond headlamps, this will be a worthwhile addition to your kit.
