The Black Diamond Storm Headlamp is a powerful 2-sided handheld headlamp with a 500-lumen single-sided LED on one side, an adjacent dimming white LED on the other side and a red light, green light and blue light side on top of that.
The Black Diamond Storm also has a lens with an optimized beam for flood or spot lighting and an adjustable focus to help you target with power. It has a total of three different lighting modes: high, medium and low.
In addition, the Storm Headlamp has four other unique lighting modes that combine high, medium and low power lights to deliver powerful, yet consistent light output: proximity, distance, red and green.
The ability to simultaneously run all white light must be among the top features for this headlamp. When you need to locate lost keys or gear in a tent at night, or strike up a fire, you'd like that light to not be dim or momentarily off, so the Quad Power LED essentially has all the power you need for four lighting modes.
Other popular features include power tap (press the power button to switch from low to high, and hit it again to switch to medium to high), the waterproof body, the simple to use one handed head strap, the easy to attach, secure head position (the head knob can withstand bumps) and the fact that the auto off function saves on battery life, so you don't need to worry about accidentally leaving it on when your camping trip is over.
