Black Diamond Icon Polar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Been using the 200 lumens edition. Great balance between battery life and brightness. Headlamp is best for usage in cold weather-even during the spring and fall. Unless one is needing a floodlamp to light up the whole woods, this will do for most every backpacker. I've been using the 200 lumens edition. I got it originally because I was tired of all other types of lights being either dim and having a low battery life or bright with no battery life. I would highly recommend this headlamp. The separate… Full review

Ledlenser MH10

rated 5 of 5 stars Great head lamp for camping. It is very powerful lighting several meters around you. It includes a red and green lense filters for observing the wildlife. Has a long battery life. The light does get a little warm and the batter makes it a touch heavier than cheaper headlamps, but the quality is worth the trade off As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I sometimes get items to review. I received the MH10 and took it out to the Purtis Creek State Park. Once the sun went down, I fired it up and had a full view… Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I like candlelights for the coziness, but both of the ones I had caught fire with a 5" large flame standing from the lantern. Luckily I caught the fire in time (both times). My thinking is that it was because I used them inside and the lack of wind makes them overheat. Full review

Ultimate Survival Technologies Pico Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Light-enough, bright-enough >120 lumen, four AA battery-powered hanging mini-lantern. Get it only if it's cheap. It's a water-resistant, shock-resistant, sturdy, compact, cheap (I got it for $10 from + shipping) three-mode, battery-powered hanging lantern. It's a good light for what it is. It's great for camping, I routinely use it walking around my house looking for our dogs off sniffing game where I live in the mountains and it's great at throwing out a nice even aura of light… Full review

Ozark Trail Propane Lantern

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bad on and off valve. After lighting the lantern, I could not turn the lantern off. Dangerous Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 3 of 5 stars If you like the warmth of a flame and the safety of a candle lantern, this smallest of all does the job. There are construction problems, but it does burn dependably for about five hours for around a nickel. This smallest of all the candle lanterns does have its issues.  The flimsy construction of the struts holding up the glass chimney means that it rarely stays fully extended and straight up when stood on the base, rather than hung. It also does not use the ingenuous spring fed mechanism of the… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars Ingenious solution to the problem of darkness. I love these things and have used them for over thirty years. They give a warm glow that just says "Home", especially when trying to find one's way back to the tent on a dark and misty or rainy night.  The one I use for backpacking is the original aluminum one, with the fleece stuff sack to protect it. For car camping, I use the slightly heavier metal ones that REI and UCO sell now. They're much more civilized than the ultra-loud lights favored by… Full review

Primus Micron Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars An ingenious twist on a small, lightweight, functional fuel-powered backpacking lantern! The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh is a durable option for backcountry illumination. The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh is a great lightweight option for backcountry hikers seeking more illumination. As a member of another website, on occasion I am given products to test and evaluate in exchange for a review. The Primus Micron Lantern - Steel Mesh falls into that category.  I recently had opportunity… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spot 2017—new and improved! I've owned past models of the Spot—the 130-lumen model (2014-ish) and then the 2016 model—lumens bumped to 200 and waterproofness bumped to IPX8 and have been very satisfied with them. Good all around lamps for a decent price point. This spring during an extended night travel stretch, I couldn't help but notice my buddy's lamp was putting out more light. I asked what he was using. "Black Diamond Spot", well that's odd as that's what I'm using. Unbeknownst to me,… Full review
