BD Headlamp Icon 500
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
complete piece of garbage. absolute junk. the plastic piece that holds the headband to the battery pack broke while I was putting it together. if Black Diamond gear can't survive the rigors of assembly while sitting at my dining room table how's it going to perform when your keister is on the line in the actual wilderness. I've had other experiences with poor quality stuff from BD in regards to their back packs and other headlamps of theirs. I should have learned my lesson. Caveat emptor when buying BD products. Having said that I own old BD C 4 cams that I love. They were made in the mid 2000's so maybe their quality control process was more robust back then
Thanks for your review, and sorry that your headlamp didn't work out!? (Thankfully, my BD headlamp is still going strong after 7 years.) I'll be in touch with your directly to help you with a return/exchange or recommend other lamps.
