Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


When after-dark adventures happen, this mega-bright and feature-rich headlamp lights the way. Updated with an internal rechargeable battery, the Spot 400-R keeps nearly every feature that has made the Spot one of Black Diamond’s most successful headlamps, in fact the only feature you lose is having to replace the batteries. For 2022 Black Diamond releases their R series, adding a rechargeable option to many of their most popular models. Having an easy to recharge headlamp makes “good enough” batteries a thing of the past.
