Why We Like It

Headlamps are one of those items essential travel items that some never think to bring. Apart from serving the obvious function of illuminating your surroundings at night, newer headlamps – like the Black Diamond Revolt – are incredibly versatile and offer several useful functions for travelers, including: a strobe to alert cars while traveling by foot or bike along busy roads, red-beam to preserve vision at night, waterproof-design, and even a lock mode to prevent it from turning on in your bag. While most Black Diamond headlamps have these features, what sets the Revolt apart is the rechargeable battery option without compromising battery life or brightness. USB recharging capability means that you're always starting each trip with a fully-charged headlamp without wasting disposable batteries.
