Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Great value, extremely bright, and adjustable brightness. Black Diamond claims you can see 80m with this light, I haven't measured but I can attest to being able to see at least 5x the distance compared to my old cheap no name headlamp. There are multiple setting for the lights. The close range low power light has a wider beam, allows you to see your immediate surroundings quite well. The full power lamp has a much more focused beam, great for distance. Batteries lasted me for a few overnights haven't… Full review

Orbit

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It's lightweight and small. Puts out good light for cooking or reading at night. I like it. It fits my needs if I ever use it that often. I usually use the Snow Peak Giga lamp knockoff that is four times brighter, but it also uses a canister to fuel it and mantles that are getting harder to find. I still use a UCO Candle Lantern when it's cold in my tent, so I am still an analog light person. I bought a box load of camping gear at a thrift store for $5. Had an MSR DragonFly stove a SweetWater filter… Full review

Saga 40 Jetforce Avalanche Airbag Pack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars A very expensive bag that lasted less than six weeks. Great components in an inferior bag. The pockets that held the components wore big holes in the fabric. The airbag is not transferable and Black Diamond did not uphold its warranty. Buy Arc'teryx for better quality. The components wore holes in the pockets where they were contained. I never put anything else in those pockets. Within six weeks huge holes appeared. I contacted Black Diamond who brushed it off as wear and tear. You cannot buy a… Full review

Moji XP

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Works excellent when hanging. Best for car camping. This review is for the 2016 150-lumen Moji XP. I really like aspects of the Moji XP. It is elegantly simple. It seems very sturdy and well made. The light tint leans yellow instead of blue. But due to some flaws it is not an ideal lantern. Hanging above a picnic table the Moji XP it is excellent. The light output is bright enough to comfortably light a table. The warm even light is ideal for eating a late meal. The lantern is not bright enough… Full review

Voyager

rated 4 of 5 stars Compact and effective. Happy with it. My Voyager is a 2016 model with 140 lumen output from the lantern portion. I hung it beneath a dining fly above a picnic table. I was in a car camping environment for a long weekend.  The light works great hanging above a table, or in a large tent.  The lantern's output is not bright enough to light a whole campsite, but that is expected. My table top was comfortably lit and the surrounding area lit about as well as a campfire.  The best aspect of this lantern… Full review
