Fenix HM60R

The Fenix HM60Ris a 1200-Max Lumen, rechargeable headlamp with an exceptionally long battery life. The light outperforms every headlamp I have owned over the past 21 years of caving. Weighing in at 157grams with the battery, the lamp is light enough to throw into the backpack. “Intelligent Frequency-Sensing” adjust the lumens of the light to the speed of the user, so that a trail runner does not have to fidget with the settings as they speed up or slow down. Coming in at under $80, the light… Full review

AceVolt Campower 2000

The AceVolt Campower 2000 is a powerful generator that can be used to charge your electronics while you’re off the grid. Cost: $1,699 Weight: 48.5 pounds Volts: 100-120 Campower 2000 Staying self-sufficient while you’re camping or on the road can be really challenging. You might be able to charge your phone while you’re driving, or mooch off of a nearby cafe for a quick electricity fix. But a small generator is a complete game changer for travelers like me. I’ve been on the road for 5 months. Full review

ACR Firefly PRO Solas

Lightweight and practical! A serious consideration for safety! I purchased this a few months ago from ACR where I had previously purchased their PLB. This is a very bright strobe light that can be activated for rescue in dark woods, at night or during the day. It weighs a little over four ounces with alkaline batteries and even less with the longer lasting and lighter lithium batteries. Up to 56 hours of strobe and about 20 steady light on. Visible up to three miles! Has settings of strobe, steady-on,… Full review

L.L.Bean Waterproof Solar Flashlight

Big Mistake—DO NOT BUY The batteries that hold the solar charge fail after a few years and cannot be replaced! Apparently, this product was never designed to have the rechargeable batteries replaced. Sure, the item also runs on disposable backup lithium batteries, but then what is the point of the rechargeable solar feature. I am disappointed LL Bean sold these.  Full review

LuminAID PackLite Max 2-in-1 Power Lantern

I bought my PackLite Max 2-in-1 online from luminAid as a backup power supply for charging up some of my electronic gear as I hiked. It served as a great source of lighting while in my tent after dark on the Appalachian Trail. I carry a couple of different solar panels while hiking and or canoeing and when I saw the luminAid online I liked what I saw. I thought it would make a good camp light and I don't have to worry about batteries going dead.  Full review

Coleman Premium Dual Fuel Lantern

One lantern to rule them all!   Don't like propane or constant battery failure? Neither do I. So I bought this lantern. If you enjoy camping with the family frequently, this lantern is the long haul one to own. I've broken tons of battery lamps, flashlights, and headlamps over the years, yet this lantern continues to be almost bomb proof. Some variation of this lantern has probably been around for 60 plus years. We have put this lantern through the paces for about 8 years now. I can attest that… Full review

Coleman Northern Nova

I have two Northern Nova Lanterns, I could not find mantles that would stay together. I called Coleman and they did not have mantles or solutions to fix the problems so they sent me another lantern? I ordered my lantern the Northern Nova that produces (supposedly) 3,000 Lumens. Very Bright. The mantles you buy are Coleman Tube style Clip-On mantles that start with a gap in the clip that flames shoot out of. NOT GOOD right off the bat. While after you install them all fluffy and put a match to them… Full review

I recently was informed of how great this candle lantern was and purchased two! Super happy with this purchase. It adds another level to my camping lighting options.   small, compact The inside candle holder.   The lantern extended   Chain and hanger making it easy to hang or carry. Again, watch out for hot top and glass after using.   Full review

Coast XP30HR

Ideal for nighttime venturing or low light exploration (spelunking). Indestructible, rechargeable and you can control the amount of light on your subject; never too little to miss details nor too much to wash out your viewing area.   A very impressive headlamp for its construction, performance, and versatility. Still, I’d have more applications for its use if the turbo mode lasted longer. You feel the flashlight’s weight on your forehead, but it’s not a detriment. The strap provides a comfortable,… Full review
