    Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

    Being in Florida, we have our share of power outages, and I got this little lamp for my husband for Christmas because he wanted an emergency light easier to handle than a flashlight. We haven't had it long enough to rate its longevity, but just for quick emergencies my husband just loves it. It can be hung above us and is sufficient to read by. It outlasts the power outages we've had so far.

        It is nice for camp while backpacking, but it also works well when car camping because it is not too bright and it has good battery life.

          Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

          The specific trip I bought the lantern for was a sub-freezing base camp trip. I primarily used the lantern to light our kitchen set up. It performed great from an elevated nest. The lantern also worked great in my tent and is plenty bright for reading or changing. I plan to bring the lantern on my next backcountry trip in April.

                    I have never used a small lantern like this, always use a headlamp in the tent. Love using it in the tent while getting ready for bed, the adjustable brightness is great.

                      Comments about Black Diamond Orbit Lantern:

                      This light is great for hanging inside a tent. There are two folding loops at the top of the lantern to engage straps inside the tent. Light output can be increased/decreased by holding down the on/off switch for dimming capability. Light weight and compact when not in use (approximately half its normal height). Plastic is frosted to reduce glare.
