Black Diamond's lightest, smallest, most compact headlamp with a waterproof body and full feature-set. The new SpotLite 160 is the perfect headlamp for ultralight, pre-dawn or post-dusk action, plus it’s small and discrete enough to hide away in your “essentials bag.”
Black Diamond says:
Compact yet powerful with 160 lumens of dependable light, the SpotLite160 is the ideal headlamp to stash in a pack or glovebox for that just-in-case fast and light objective. With its waterproof housing rated to IPX8, and settings that let you easily switch from full power to dimmed, strobe or red night vision, the SpotLite160 has the functionality of a bigger light in a tiny ergonomic package.
Black Diamond's SpotLite 160 Lumens Headlamp stands out as a very powerful head torch for its weight (and price).
Usually you find the stated lumens and distance is for the 'Max' setting which normally doesn't last very long, but with the SpotLite the 'Max' setting lasts for a very respectable 2 hours.
The low-profile of the torch itself is ideal for sitting under the front lip of a helmet.
