MPowerd Luci Aura

rated 4 of 5 stars Handy and convenient lantern-like light that adds a decent amount of ambient light to a campsite or a tent. Handy and convenient lantern-like light that adds a decent amount of ambient light to a campsite or a tent, especially when paired with a second one. While it won't push out as much light as a conventional propane, white fuel, or similar lantern, it does provide enough light for a game of cards or the like.   When it's not being used, it packs down very well (maybe the size of 10-15 stacked… Full review

Black Diamond Icon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great, rugged light. Lasts for 100's of hours on high-med diffuse beam using rechargeable batteries (longer on lithiums of course). I've had good luck with Black Diamond headlamps. I bought the Gemini back around 2002 and that lasted almost 10 years before the battery case finally cracked enough to let rain in... I've had the Icon since around 2012 and it still looks pretty new. It gets almost nightly use while I go feed my livestock. I've used it on weeknight hikes in the pouring rain without any… Full review

Coleman Northstar InstaStart Propane Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Wow, a lot of light! I received this lantern as a gift, and am happy to have it. The light from this model is superlative compared to other Coleman products, and will really brighten up your campsite.  The piezo ignition is wonderful, and I won't buy another lantern without it. Having said that, when using it the first time, it was slow to ignite, resulting in a partial blow out of the mantle. No problems with the ignition system since, so perhaps there was a breaking-in that had to occur. Try… Full review

Coleman 2 Mantle Dual Fuel Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Don't abandon the idea of liquid fueled lanterns just yet! A neighbor offered me some broken down Coleman lanterns to cannibalize for parts for our Boy Scout Troop's propane versions. One of the lanterns was largely intact,  and when I found that standard mantles worked in this older version, I decided to give it a try just to burn out the old white gas in the tank.  This dual-fuel lantern (white gas and gasoline,) fired right up. As it happened, it burned side-by-side with a new Coleman propane… Full review

Petzl Tikka R+

rated 5 of 5 stars The Petzl Tikka R+ is a high-end yet affordable headlamp option, ideal for the night crawler. It's rechargeable lithium-ion powered, reactive high output LED beam will ensure safe passage on the trail after the sun goes down. The weight and balance of the R+ is supported by a super comfortable easy adjust elastic band. While not exactly sleek, the headlamp is not cumbersome, and would surely satisfy outdoor enthusiast illumination needs on the trail. The Tikka R+ is best used for trail use. While… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This headlamp is a good buy. It works very well for night hiking and navigation. The spot beam is useful for route finding, and the flood is very nice. The spot beam on this headlamp has a really good range, about 300' or so, and is plenty bright enough to navigate at night. It does drain the batteries though, and can use them up in about an hour, so I only use the spot when I need to see something far away. For the rest of the time, the flood is almost perfect on this light, and does nicely. Usually,… Full review

Coleman Exponent 4AA Pack-Away Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact light with a punch. If you're looking for a small compact light, this won't disappoint you. This small light will perform just as good if not better then some other lights to this size or a bit bigger and it doesn't break the bank. Works great for camping, sitting on the deck, power outages, etc. I own several of these little guys cause several of these going at once makes terrific lighting. Totally recommend this product. Full review

BioLite KettleCharge

rated 5 of 5 stars A kettle with a built-in thermoelectric generator that can charge USB-powered devices off-grid. Heat water, get a charge. A superb option for emergency use during power outages and something to consider for multi-day basecamp expeditions, but likely too much weight to justify its presence on most backpacking trips.

Fenix CL20

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite camping lantern. Watch my review! Have fun. Full review
