Say goodbye to headlamp blindness. This little lantern gives off plenty of light to see everything in your tent. The frosted glass keeps the light from being too intense and allows your eyes to adjust much quicker to darkness when stepping out of the tent than a headlamp. You no longer have to look at the ground when talking to someone either (like you would when wearing a headlamp). The hooks on top make it easy to hang from the tent ceiling and the double clasp is key in preventing it from getting knocked off whatever you hook it to. A single button is all it takes to operate and holding it down will dim or brighten the light. The light blinks when reaching the lowest and highest settings which allows you to easily conserve the battery when you don't need as bright a light. There aren't really any flaws to this lantern. If you are really weight conscious, it weighs 4.6 oz. with 4 AAA batteries, not the 3 oz. as BD lists on their website (the lantern itself weighs 3 oz.). I would try and stay away from the darker colors as they are harder to find in a dark tent or in your pack. If you are car camping, you might want to check out the Apollo or Titan as weight won't be an issue. Other than that, go buy one and you likely won't be going to sleep right after the sun goes down anymore.
