Summary: Love this light, small but BRIGHT!!! I almost didn't buy it, once I got it I waited till dark then went to the basement and wow!!! Folks get one!! I had to even post it on my page, and I'm taking it out 1-27-12 for an overnight hike on the AT and staying at Peters Mountain Shelter.

Summary: Fantastic little product at a great price. The light output isn't going to fill a campsite; but it is ideal if you want some light to cook by or a tent light for playing cards or reading (hanging from a center loop gear loft easily illuminates an entire 3-person tent and the double hook design makes sure it stays in place). The Orbit Lantern is ESPECIALLY perfect if you'd like to shave ounces and minimize pack space. All around an excellent product.

Summary: BRILLIANT, yeah it is bright Plus's doubley adjustable, by using the adjustment button and gently/slightly collapsing will furthermore reduce the light output to a bare minimal light. excellent in the tent, on the table, in the field. When I arrive at a camp site in the dark this is one of the first things I pull out, turn it on along with my headlamp and find the area to pitch the tent. Then place it right next to that area while setting up.

Summary: On my last backpacking trip, I used this little guy to light up our campsite. At 45 lumens, it puts out a pretty good amount of light at its maximum setting. I hung it from a tree, about 7 feet up, and that seemed to be where it worked the best. I've also used it at its minimum setting for a night light in a tent or cabin. Its adjustable light settings make it extremely versatile. Its compressibility make it fairly small to pack.

Summary: Originally I thought that this was a waste of space and money. Why do I need a lantern when I have a headlamp? Well, my girlfriend kept saying how much she wanted one and would go on and on about a lantern for the tent so one day I went to a local outdoor gear shop and picked up the orbit. WOW! What an amazing product. The amount of gentle light output for its size is amazing. It more than lights up my tent and works great as a cooking light.

Summary: I began using the Coleman Peak1 white gas lantern, then started using small single mantle canister fueled lanterns, then finally settled on a ten dollar LED lantern that I picked up because it was kind of neat. The ten dollar lantern (Eddie Bauer) was great, but the light it threw out was partially blocked by a large base. So long story short - I picked up the Orbit a couple of weeks ago, and it's marvelous.
