The Black Diamond Orbit Lantern – 105 Lumen – ultra white is small compact and packs a punch for its size as it has a bright LED light.
Tested In: Various camp trips from the mountains to the sea.
Duration of Test: 5 years
The Pro:The LED Black Diamond Lantern is decently bright, compact and light in weight. It’s enough light to get you by and the newer generations have a built in flashlight at the bottom. The hooks are a nice feature as they are easily collapsible and perfect to hang in your tent. The light feels like it’s built with high quality and I haven’t had any real issues with it as the design is simple and solid build. The rubber feet help keeping the lantern from sliding around.
The Con: I did wish it had the built in flashlight at the bottom but, the newer generations do. Black Diamond could of improve on adding another LED towards the top of the lantern so it projects more light outwards. This model has about 50 to 60 lumen. I’m sure the lantern can handle two LEDs as it’s packing 4 AAA batteries.
Overall:This is a quality light and has lasted for years with no issues because you can how solid the light is.The newer model has the flashlight at the bottom which makes the lantern a bit more versatile. Great for packing in a side pocket of a surf pack for those full moon night sessions.
