Over the past year, I’ve replaced all of my old mini-flashlights with LED lights that weigh under 1 oz. Some of these come with little clips that attach to the bill of your hat, but after the sun sets I find it very hard to read with them in my tent and end up biting on them in order to plan my route for the next day or write in my journal. Sub-optimal.
Brunton has changed all that with the introduction the Lamplight, a very lightweight LED-based flashlight and convertible lantern that only weights 2.9 oz. including a lanyard and 3AAA batteries. In order to go from flashlight mode to lantern mode, you simply pull the blue plastic top up and light is reflected 360 degrees to light up your tent or facilitate late night bull sessions with your hiking buddies. And get this: the 3 batteries will run for 200 hours. Really nice.
