                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.

                      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.
