Black Diamond Releases the Impressive Distance 1500 Headlamp

If you’re planning on tackling tough terrain in the dark, you’ll want the Distance 1500 Headlamp to accompany you.

On its “standard” setting, the 300-lumen light output will be more than bright enough to illuminate the darkness in your immediate vicinity. But when you need some serious light to see, you can always switch it out to its medium-bright 600-lumen setting or blast it on full brightness for a whopping 1500 lumens.

Battery life on this little headlamp is around 8 hours for 300 lumens, though you can always add a second battery pack to double the run time. The max brightness setting will only last for 10 seconds before dimming to save battery.

Thanks to the multifaceted optical lens, you’ll have better depth lighting and smoother illumination of any obstacles in your path. Take it mountain climbing, dirt biking, or off-roading, and the helmet-compatible, IP67-rated, ultra-comfortable headlamp will more than keep up.
