...The best I've found are some of the 2019 Black Diamonds. Confusingly, although the model name (but not the number) remains the same, many have been totally redesigned for 2019 with two buttons instead of just one...
I have a question for anyone who has one of these Black Diamond headlamps. Is the hinge that allows for the tilting of the light well-made and strong? I assume that this is plastic and that it attaches to the part of the housing that holds the head strap. I had a similar looking unit (but NOT made by Black Diamond) where the plastic that supports the hinge broke after a few months of use and I don't want to buy another headlamp that will suffer the same problem. Now, I have to use electrical tape in order to keep this headlamp upright and secured to the strap. And note, two other reviews on Amazon reported the same issue with this other headlamp (and again, here I'm NOT talking about one of the Black Diamond units, although the head strap/hinge design looks similar).
Here is a picture of the broken plastic on the other light, I wonder whether the Black Diamond has a similarly weak design.
