StormThe Black Diamond Storm is one of the best and feature filled headlamps from this top outdoor company. With a long battery life, strong beam and various lighting modes you can use this is almost any outdoor situation and more.
RevoltThe Black Diamond Revolt is a versatile headlamp that can take rechargeables for AAA. It is a little weaker in beam distance and battery life, but still a worthy purchase for any outdoor lover.
Black Diamond like to produce top quality gear in some very specific niches of outdoor sports. And lucky for us, one of those is LED headlamps.
The Storm is your goto lamp if you want a brighter headlamp (but it’s heavier). The Revolt can be recharged on the go via the headlamp itself.
But, there is also a little more to it than that, so let’s do a head-to-head comparison…
This is quite a close comparison, like with my other review of the Spot vs Storm. These lamps share a lot of the same, features, but first the differences.
The biggest ones are:
So, all in all the Storm is a better headlamp, but it depends what you need it for, and if you want to spend that little extra. And the Revolt is rechargeable, although the batteries don’t last very long (if you don’t need rechargeables, but want to save weight and money, go for the Spot)
Black Diamond is always pushing the boundaries with their headlamps, and they have some pretty cool (and useful) features built into both these models.
The Revolt is very similar to the Spot (which I compared in this review) except a little heavier and has the rechargeable option. Of course, you can use normal Alkalines with it too and get the full 300 Lumens and longer battery life.
The Storm is a great option for those wanting looooong burn time and a little boost on the Lumens (350). It could also be that you love the benefit of having the 3 night vision colors too. The Revolt only has red.
Either option is great, it’s now up to you to choose the one for your next adventure!
