I have used this lantern for a few years (and prior to that an exact duplicate of unknown brand) and it has been a life saver on more than one occasion. I also keep this handy for power outages and as it is enclosed the fire hazard is minimized. In the winter I also use it in the tent to add a little warmth to the inside temperature.

The lantern has a little hook and chain that allows you to hang the lantern from a loop or ridge line and it give enough light to see, if not to read unless your very close. The candles lasts for about 3 hours and cost less than $5 for three.

You could improve the lighting by putting a reflector around the glass to direct the light a little more.

Overall I like this lantern, it packs small (barely larger than the candle) its light and has no components that will fail.

 

Pros:

Small and light.

Bullet proof.

 

Cons:

Wax can get everywhere if you knock the lantern.
