Had an icon black diamond for three years. Used in all weathers for shooting at night. Never had any issues, waterproof, bright, good modes of use. But the elastic of the torch needs to be replaced and I can find nowhere in the UK to do so. Looks like a reasonably expensive and still functional torch will end up in the bin unless i can find another non-black diamond strap and get it to fit. Shame.
I have been a daily user of this headlamp for more than 10 years. One of the best features that is never quite highlighted is that it uses 4 AA Batteries. As you may know, that is the quantity that AA batteries are sold. So, I just go and buy rechargeable batteries and away I go. Absolutely a superior product!
I bought my Icon because I was going on my first week-long canoe trip and wanted a waterproof headlamp. The Icon had been featured and reviewed in Backpacker magazine's annual product review with high praise. Now I know why. I've had my for over six years now and it still works great. I'm a police detective, a scoutmaster, and an active outdoorsman. My Icon is used on the crime scene, the scout outing, or the camping/hiking scene. The only problem I have now is the headband elastic is losing its elasticity, but that's understandable because of it's age. One of my best gear purchases, no doubt.
love this head lamp I have used the older versions. I use the battery pack option. There Needs to be instructions that tell the user if they want to detach the battery pack, one can do so by pulling up the rubber pads at the back of the head lamp and there are 4 screws to detach the head support from the battery pack. It should be designed to slide out.
I am a commercial union carpenter and use this light on my hardhat daily. No reliability issues so far and I'm very happy with output and battery life. Could use a battery level indicator but fantastic none the less
Ever since I started working in Kitchen exhaust/hood cleaning I’ve always wore a black diamond this one to be exact and this one has to be my favorite head lamp of all and believe me I used like a million head lamps from the lil 25cent mini one at Walmart to some expensive transformer looking ones from Home Depot and Lowe’s and of you know how dirt that job is, nothing beats the black diamond to Get things done ✅
I bought this as a replacement for another Black Diamond Headlamp that had a non-replaceable battery. This one should last a long time as I no longer need to worry about a rechargeable battery failing. It is bright and versatile. Great quality and it has all the features I need!
Got this headlamp for running. I love the dimming feature and being able to select exactly how bright the beam is. I was afraid the battery pack would feel heavy when running, but I put the lamp overtop of my hat and forgot it was there. It was secure and did not bounce. All of the buttons, including the max brightness side button work with gloves on.
The strobe feature with RGB lights is also a great for dawn runs when light isn't required for running, I can still alert oncoming drivers I am there.
i bought this to Patrol with... works great for doing sweep after night skiing, can really see into the trees with those 500 lumens... it really doesn't fit my smith helmet, but some industrial velcro and we're good to go. that has really slated it as my patrol headlamp though....
Dog mushing up here in Alaska, night hikes and mountain running in the short daylight hours of winter is all better with some candle power also having any headlamp can help with backcountry emergencies
Having owned multiple icons and having them last is why I bought another. It turns out that black diamond changed the icon so it is now all plastic and not as robust, the brightness seems to be the same, but why change a good thing? For headlamps I wont be buying black diamond anymore
Bought this a month ago for use with search and rescue. Amazing product with some versatile features. Love the rechargeable battery pack that is removable to store in a jacket or backpack. Quite a few different light options with brightness and colors. Black Diamond knocked it out of the park with this headlamp, highly recommend.
Bought this approx. 1 month ago for mountain SAR use. Feature rich and powerful light in use so far. It takes a bit to learn the functions associated with the buttons, but the headlamp has been a great purchase.
I have used the Icon headlamp for climbing and skiing for the past three years. During that time it performed flawlessly, and is the brightest head torch I have encountered. When the headlamp developed an issue recently, BD had a new unit shipped to me within an hour. This is a great headlamp, backed by even better customer service. I highly recommend it.
Received today from the mail man. It's incredibly bright and very comfortable as well. It took about 30 seconds to figure out how to access all the different functions and seems to be very well made. Glad to have this in the backpack!
