This thing is small, lightweight and illuminates the darkest trails in pitch black conditions. Light has an adjustable tilt that can illuminate trail floor or further out depending on the terrain. I run on a trail and love the faces of bikers when they realize my little light is brighter than their car battery handlebar mounted version. Well if they can see, usually they are just blinded which results in what I call "Squinty mole face". There is no light this size that is brighter or that you would want to be brighter for running. You can even dim it if desired, the squinty mole face bikers will be thankful.
The rear blinking red light is also great. Unfortunately it does not make a sound when moving in reverse but it is highly visible even for terrible Seattle drivers in rainy poor visibility conditions. You can turn it off if desired. I personally wear it with red light blinking indoors to announce the fact I intend on going for a run, (my wife does not know I can turn it off).
Since it is rechargeable I save a lot of money on batteries. Have not tested the life of the charge to the limit but I have not really had to. This also contributes to it being light weight, I usually forget I have it on.
Even if I bring it on hikes I likely could get by with one charge. If you are into long camping trips without access to a recharge there are other diamondback versions of this that would be better for you (Bulkier but battery operated).
* Light weight/comfortable fit (maybe that should be two things, but for my purposes, I've considered them together)
* Bright but adjustable (angle and brightness)
* Rechargeable (I won't wear this on long, multi-day hiking adventures -- I needed something that could comfortably and reliably go on, up to, 3 hour runs) -- the 2032 battery powered lamps tend to need the batteries replaced pretty frequently and the lamps with larger batteries are just bulkier than I was comfortable with for running
* Wanted a rear light for safety.
The Sprinter, met all of these requirements. On longer runs, this lamp is comfortable to the point of hardly noticing it's there (except for the bright bit of light in front of me). The light is bright and can be adjusted (dimmed). I haven't found that I've needed it full strength, though it has the battery life to last for just about any run, even full bright (Black Diamond claims 6hrs at full). I never have to change batteries -- just set it on its charger before bed and pull it off before heading out in the am (Black Diamond claims 5hrs to charge). And, finally, the small red light on the back adds an extra bit of safety out on the roads. I have no real complaints with this lamp. It costs a little more than I'd hoped to spend, but it's comfortable, easy to adjust to fit and use, and does it's job beautifully. Oh, and I was recently caught out in a heavy downpour. As advertised, it is indeed waterproof.
Now to the strange part, and wondering if it relates to the headlamp. Used it for the first time this past Wednesday morning. About a mile into the run, I felt a large object land on my head, fairly forcefully, and then fly off in front of me. It was an owl. Chalked it up to a good story to tell my coworkers. Then on Thursday morning, went out again, this time with a hat as it was cool and just in case, also before sunrise, passed the same spot as my encounter the previous day, no issue so far. Continued on my circular route. It was now just barely dawn and I saw an owl sitting in a tree on the side of the road, probably a quarter mile or more physical distance from previous encounter. I have never seen an owl on my runs previous to this week. I greeted it, rather cordially considering my previous encounter - not sure if the same owl, but made some grumbling about my previous experience with owls in general. Went on running. About 5 second later, boom, the owl had pushed off from my head (like previous incident came from behind so did not see it, and they are really quiet flight as I have found out, no idea I was being stalked). I screamed at it and kept on running. A few second later, boom, hit me on the head again. Screamed at it again, and doubled my pace. This time it drew some blood despite the hat. Found some articles on the internet about other runners being attacked by owls. This morning I went out, pretty much same route with a DIFFERENT headlamp, actually the Black Diamond Spot HeadLamp, no blinker on the back of the headstrap. No issue. I am wondering if the rapid blinker on the back was particularly irritating to the owl population or at least gave them a guided beacon to the stop of my head. Other than the owl incidents the headlamp is perfect. I will probably be saving it for hiking or at least a different season of the year.
The fact that this is rechargeable, was a big selling point for me. Just clip the back lamp onto the enclosed charger and soon you have full battery power again. No need to constantly replace heavy batteries.
My husband used to joke about how often I wear mine, but has now asked me to purchase one for him as well. He should be getting his today. :)
With all that being said, none of those things prompted me to write a review. A week ago, I was running with the headlamp and the light on the front stopped working. The red light in the back kept blinking, so I figured maybe it was the battery. After re-charging, the front light never worked. After fiddling with it for a bit, I realized there was a short in the wire where it enters the battery pack. I looked up Black Diamond online to see what their warranty was. I found that they warranted this thing for 3 years! But that wasn't the best part. All I had to do was fill out a form online, sending a picture of the device and describing my problem. Two days later, I got an email from Black Diamond saying a new headlamp was on its way to me free of charge. That is some kind of service! With that kind of service, I will be a customer for life.
