Eagles Nest Outfitters Twilight LED Lights
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $19.95
ENO Twilight LED Lights are a great asset to any campsite! They are very versatile and can surprisingly be hung just about anywhere. I never camp without them.
- Very simple to operate
- Two color options (white and multi color)
- Comes with a protective case that can attach to your pack
- Not quite as bright as I'd like
- No option to dim or brighten
ENO Twilights are one piece of gear that I never leave behind. Weighing in at only 4oz, there is almost no excuse to leave them at home. They brighten up any campsite! Twilights are a 10 ft strand of 23 LED lights that are run by two AA batteries. They run for up to 72 continuous hours on the two batteries. These lights are incredibly easy to operate because they are operated by one single "on/off" switch.
I LOVE how versatile these lights are. You can string them on your tent poles, from the loops inside your tent, in between two trees, in between two trekking poles that you stick in the ground, in between two packs sitting upright...or my favorite place to hang them...
I've had these for about six months now and they have been used on every trip that I've taken them on. I can't say how they are affected by weather, because I haven't really exposed them to any.
ENO Twilights make the perfect stocking stuffer for any backpacker!
Overpriced and other similar products are available, for less money.
I do not own this product, but I have bought similar ones from Big Lots for $5 and they seem to do just a well for one quarter the price. I think any battery powered Christmas lights would work. I do find the LED strings to be great when camping. I have used both white and colored sets. After Christmas they will be discounted 25-50%.

A great concept poorly executed.
- Alternative illumination
You know this is a great concept, but it's poorly executed at best. I've often thought how nice it would be to have a little extra light adorning the tent and what better than Christmas lights. But in all honesty, you can purchase off of a craft website battery-powered outdoor lights for less than 1/2 of what these cost and arguably they are more durable.
I wouldn't waste my money again.
