Trail Gear Review – Black Diamond head lamps 8

This one two combo can help you navigate through a blizzard at night ! Yea, thats what the Bear 100 handed out this year, full cloud cover and dark conditions. When the sun first set, I used the Spot to start the long night run which last 12 hours in late September. I went with the 3 LED setting all night long, when it got super dark and snowy I started up the Icon, this center LED sent a super defined spot in front of me while the Spot Headlamp lighted up the general area. Even during the 12 hour night leg I never had to change batteries, try that in a blizzard after 20 hours of running, not!

The two light combo allowed me to run all night with no pacers in the snow and clouds, I couldn’t see the pink ribbons and there where very few glow sticks, but I just followed Meltzers foot prints all night long! Thanks for leaving those scrape marks ! Wahsatchspeedgoat.
