There’s a reason we called this trusty torch one of the best headlamps for backpackers. The Black Diamond Storm boasts 350 lumens in four colors: white, blue, green, and red. “The three colored lights may sound like overkill, but they were clutch for reading the lines on multicolored topo maps,” says one tester. The Storm will light your path for 160 hours on the low setting, and don’t worry about getting it wet: it’s waterproof up to one meter. Get it for $37 (27% off) on Backcountry this week, and start becoming a morning person for summer alpine starts.
