I have bought 5 or 6 of these now. I got one a few years back and used it camping and really liked it. Got a couple more for me and a couple for gifts. This year the power was out for a couple of days. These lanterns worked well around the house. I would use the Black Diamond Orbit for backpacki...

The two sides hook is genius and makes for easy hanging of the lantern. The landing pod legs get the small lantern up casting light over a larger immediate area. Great on a picnic table. The 200 lumen model can be used as a primary lantern. I only give the product four stars because it's not as bright as the 200 lumen model.

What I am compelled to emphasize is the dimming feature on these BDE lamps. Hold the off/on button and it fades from bright to low. Used this in Uganda as a NIGHTLIGHT, where we slept in places without electricity or the generators are turned off at night. It became essential. Lasts several nights on one set of batteries, on low power. Will be great camping in a tent too. I have the smaller one, about the size of a cardboard toilet paper tube, and it's the perfect size.

Un-boxing this lamp I was surprised how little it was. I didn't read the descriptions, but that is not a negative for this product. I rather liked how small it was and collapsed into itself, great for keeping my packing small. I used this lamp to light up my 12x12 wall tent. It lit up the tent just fine, I left it running, on full, for eight hours before the batteries failed. I am not upset by this, just be sure to bring extra batteries if you plan to use it all night for several nights.
5 stars for size, output and functionality (self standing and or hanging)
It depends on what type AA batteries you use. Alkaline AA batteries have a weight of roughly 23 g (0.81 oz), lithium AA batteries have a mass around 15 g (0.53 oz), and rechargeable NiMH batteries around 31 g (1.1 oz). Multiply the weight by 4 and add 7 oz. for your total weight.
