The Black Diamond Storm was updated in 2016 to with improved optics  56% more lumens (250 vs. 160 before)  and is more waterproof IPX67. One thing we don't like about this new version is that one of the buckles on the strap  see right side above  faces in and if you have a tight strap that buckle is annoying.

The Black Diamond Spot was updated for 2016 with better optics  53% more lumens (200 vs. 130 before)  and is now waterproof to 1.1 meter. But  we one change we don't like is the new headband strap  which has one buckle facing in (see the right side one above) that we found to be less comfortable than the old strap.
