Black Diamond Iota Headlamp
Black DiamondIota Headlamp

BD's smallest.

Having a light as tiny as Black Diamond's Iota Headlamp can come in handy on any outdoor adventure. It's clearly an essential for hiking, backpacking, and camping—especially when you have to leave the tent in the middle of the night for an impromptu bathroom break—but it's also small enough to fit in the fullest backpacks for climbing, skiing, and mountaineering. You might not be planning to play past daylight, but mistakes happen and sometimes you reach the car in total darkness wondering what happened. At the very least, the Iota makes an excellent spare or backup; at the very most, the Iota can brighten the way on most adventures that extend past daytime.

I love lamp

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bright, light, and rechargeable. What more could you want? My favorite thing about BD headlamps is how easily adjustable the strap is.

Re-chargeable Brightness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great little headlamp that packs alot of light. Than you are able to even adjust the amount of light which is awesome. It is also rechargeable, so no need to worry about batteries. (It is mico-usb, cable included) The strap is secure and snug, without being uncomfortably tight, and is easy to adjust. I would easily recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable and versatile headlamp.

Light weight and rechargeable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This may be one of the best lights to use while running! Its lightweight and bright enough to light the road and it's rechargeable so you won't have to keep replacing batteries.

Packs a Punch

    This light works great and there and you can adjust the intensity of the light which is great for when you're having conversations with a friend and don't want to blind them.

    "it works"

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought my husband a second head lamp because he's always stealing mine. I asked him what he thought, he said "it works." It doesn't have the red light that I require (as a photographer) but it does have different brightness levels. What I really liked about it is that it's bright and very little and compact. Considering that he uses his mostly at work I think it's great.

    No Nonsense, Bright Light

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this to my girlfriend and this is what she had to say: "This headlamp is great if you're looking for a no nonsense, bright light. It doesn't have a lock or a blinking light but it will do that trick in the dark. It's also light weight and I love the bright blue color, makes it easy to find around the camp site! If you're looking for a fancy headlamp, this is not the headlamp for you. If you're looking for something in the cheaper price range that will light your way, however, this is it!"

    No Nonsense, Bright Light

    It actually does lock and also has a strobe function.
