Summary

This featherweight is the coolest new piece of gear I've come across in years! It attaches to your headlamp... INCREDIBLE!!!

Pros

  • Turns headlamp into a lantern with almost no weight!

Cons

  • Might fly away it's so lightweight

This little cylinder has a cone-shaped reflective material in the top, and the walls are a white translucent material. There's a little bungee that tightens around any headlamp, and then you have a lantern that will illuminate the whole tent. I'm not sure how much this thing weighs, maybe 10 grams?

This lantern adaptor appears to be sewn well, there's really nothing else in the design to fail! It's so nice to have a lantern backpacking! I LOVE THIS THING!!!
