The Revolt has had a serious upgrade for this year and now pumps out a whopping 300 lumens of bright, white LED light. The whole headtorch is completely waterproof (rated to IPX8) and can even be immersed in water without damage. Power is supplied through three Black Diamond rechargeable batteries that can be charged via a USB cable that can be plugged into anything from a computer to a solar charger. If you can’t get to a power supply the Revolt will happily run off normal alkaline or lithium AAA batteries. It is this verstility and high perfomance that makes the Revolt the perfect choice for the serious end user.

This bad boy will pack enough light power for just about anything you can get up to after dark with different modes to suit all applications.  Maximum distance mode is powered by one TriplePower LED that can pump out up to 300 lumens to 80m, toggle the power down to the DoublePower LED and you will save battery power and illuminate up to 3m (depending on batteries used). To preserve your night vision there is a separate DoublePowerRed LED mode that can be accessed without toggling through the White LED functions and has its own proximity and strobe settings. Another useful upgrade is the programmable memory function that allows you to set the brightness when the headlamp is turned on, this really helps to maximise battery life.  Settings include full strength in proximity and distance modes, dimming, strobe, red night vision and lockout. The Revolt also features the innovative and easy to use PowerTap technology that allows you to easily switch the brightness on-the-fly, think of it like a high and low beam switch in your car. 

All this is a re-designed, waterproof and robust package.


  • 1 TriplePower LED, 1 DoublePower white LEDs that emit up to 300 lumens (max setting using alkaline batteries)

    Black Diamond Revolt, short term review. owned the headlamp just over a week, already got a fair amount of use out of it but no major tests as of yet. Pros, decently bright even with the diminished light from the rechargeable batteries. the lowest setting on the flood beam is more than enough for me to see a few metres where im walking around campsite or garden, the throw beam can go a good distance and even in thick fog i had this weekend i was able to see a good 10m about twice as far as anyone else on site. its comfortable to wear and looks good as well. also a good feature you can choose between rechargeable batteries and standard AAA the IPX8 waterproofing is excellent for me as i always manage to plan my trips for the worst weather, from doing my Dofe in the remnants of a hurricane a couple of years back to camping in a blizzard of torrential sleet. i need something i know is waterproof, especially as my coat isnt. (pile pertex so warm when wet rather than waterproof) Cons; recharging. now i was after a good rechargeable head torch and this was at the top of a lot of top ten best rechargeable headtorches, however i seem to be having a few issues, when recharging it seems to think its fully charged when its not and stops charging itself before its full. eg charged it for a few hours and it kept saying it was full when it was still on yellow (below 50%) when i turned it on. then there is another issue, holding a charge. i charged it for a about seven hours before camping recently showed green light as above 50%. i used it for about 10 minutes on minimum brightness to put my tent up and get in my sleeping bag and it was still on green when i went to sleep. when i woke up in the morning and turned it on the battery was now red (below 15%) im unsure if the above points are issues with the batteries them selves, the torch reading the amount of power left wrong or something else. Either way ill be contacting black diamond about it after i get back from a trip in a couple of weeks where i will be needing the torch. overall i would recommend this head torch, it works fine for what i need, and the issues of recharging are easily fixed by using standard AAAs.

    Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

    Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
