Black Diamond Revolt & Spot 350 Headlamps: $49 & $30 (25% off)

Black Diamond Revolt and Spot 350 Headlamps

These Black Diamond headlamps have a lot of options, and perhaps a learning curve. However, once dialed, users can enjoy the ability to hold one button to adjust the brightness to a level of their liking, which the lamp remembers.

If a dark trail or crevasse warrants full brightness, they can swipe a side button for quick access, turn it off the same way, and the lamp returns to the previous setting.

The rechargeable Revolt can run on batteries for backup. The best-selling Spot 350 has three modes and runs on three AAA batteries. Both use the brand’s PowerTap to toggle on and off and other settings with a tap from gloved hands.
