Tread Lite Gear cuben camping lantern

IMG_1635(2)I bought this recently and thought it might interest others. I’ve had a variety of small camping lanterns over the years, but this has to be the lightest at 7g (advertised at 8g). It throws out a surprising amount of light and the batteries are replaceable. If you want a bit of ambient light in your shelter at next to no weight penalty, it’s hard to beat.

  1. Yes, I’ve got one of these and am very pleased with it. Only problem was that the self-adhesive reflective foil in the base came unstuck but I pressed it back in place and it seems fine now.

    As someone who has taken only a headtorch when camping, a lantern is surprisingly useful. I’m getting a couple more for our family tent as soon as more are available.

  2. @jake, they are back in stock but selling fast. Thanks for the feedback on the foil. Ive switched to a vinyl reflector as its more reflective than the previous one, im still looking at a UL perspex mirror insert that can act as a dual purpose item but i cant find a supplier that will machine them that small.
