Camping Must-Have

Today, the Best Headlamp Is Also the Most Affordable


August 28, 2019 Deals By

If there’s one camping accessory to buy for fall, it’s a headlamp. For years now, we’ve commended Black Diamond’s Spot as better than a safe bet. It’s simple, but don’t take that to mean it’s basic. The Spot uses three AAA batteries, is fully waterproof and features a main light with 300 lumens of brightness. According to Black Diamond, it can shoot a beam of light 80 meters (262 feet), but we’ve more impressed by how easily you can swap between its various modes (beam, flood, strobe, red night vision) and how its brightness is adjustable as necessary.

Black Diamond recently updated the Spot to the Spot 325 — it’s smaller, brighter and has a second button that makes for improved operation. The only element of the headlamp not to see an uplift is its price; the Spot 325 still costs just $40. Right now, however, it’s even cheaper than that. Thanks to a sale at Backcountry, you can snag the new camping essential for just $30.
