When the grid is down and there are no lights, you'll want lots of lighting options. But a headlamp is the most crucial when you are on the move, either evacuating or transiting, or doing anything critical in your shelters at night. Black Diamond makes great headlamps, and they are cost efficient.

Black Diamond Storm Headlamp

  • THE ESSENTIALS

    Importance: Crucial.

     

    Bottom line: When the electricity is out, lights are crucial. So is the use of your hands. So, voila! A good headlamp is worth its weight in gold. This one can be used with included rechargable batteries or lithium or regular batteries.

     

    Recommended for: Shelters (home/away); go-bag, vehicle.

     

    No. of units recommended: One for every adult and ambulatory child. One in each location is recommended. But having it in your evac (bug-out) bag is most crucial.

     

    You’ll also need: AAA Batteries. In this case, we suggest these AAA lithium, which have an especially long shelf life.

     

     

  • FIELD NOTES

    We use ours all the time. Camping, hiking, and just banging around outside in the evening. No sense in saving these headlamps for emergencies.
