  • Summary: 1) Purchased on sale at REI in 2011. 2) Purchased due to high ratings in a magazine. 3) Only used for camping, backpacking and in the tent, or when answering the call of nature. It is more than adequate for those purposes. 4) I can't speculate on its use for other types of activities.

  • Excerpt: I gave this a poor review because the new Spot headlamps are nowhere near as good as the old Spots in both construction and optical quality. I have two old BD Spots, one with a worn headband, so I though I'd get a replacement with a promotion coupon.

  • Summary: This is a product that I must sadly give a bad review to. I say sadly, because this is a product that I want to love. Its unique electronics package, which gives you just about every feature imaginable, puts this headlamp head and shoulders above the competition.
