Brightness worth the weight.,
This review is from: Brunton Glorb Four LED Lantern (Sports)
A lot of folks are bashing this product, but I suppose it depends on your usage. I'm an all around outdoor adventurer (canoeing, mountaineering, backpacking, day hiking, car camping) and an active Scout leader and I get about 60-75 nights in a tent or in the open annually under various conditions and locations and I've found this lantern to be a great item. It is lightweight, uses very little battery power, even with rechargables, and gives off enough light to read by, set up my tent, cook with and varioius other camp tasks. I've given several as gifts and they are equally happy. If you are looking for a bright light, this isn't it. But what are you going to be doing in the backcountry or in a camping setting, under normal that requires that bright a light? I can't think of anything I've done that requires it and I'd consider my experience extensive. Besides, we should be considerate of others in the outdoors and no one wants a series of bright lights and lanterns spoiling their wilderness experience.
