Black Diamond Zenix HeadlampReview
By the Everest GearGal
The days of being satisfied
with the proximity light given off by the typical, lightweight headlamp are
over. Black Diamond is the first to introduce Hyperbright LED technology. What
does that mean? Hyperbright LED is five times brighter then the traditional LED
lights we have all learned to love.
The Zenix is manufactures using
3 LED bulbs, two are Superbright and one is a lensed Hyperbright. This allows
for both an intense, high focus beam that can reach up to 35 meters and a lower
proximity option for around camp. The approximate burn time at full strength is
12-15 hours, and 140hrs if just using the 2 Superbrights. And unlike xenon
bulbs, LEDs will never need replacing.
This little blazer weighs in at
just 3.3oz and runs on 3 AAA batteries (weighs 4.5oz with batteries). The Zenix
is highly durable and compact. It is tested to IPX waterproof standards allowing
it to perform in the harshest weather conditions.

double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with
a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a
super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the
TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on
