Sometimes a good flashlight just doesn’t cut it when sitting around a campfire. They’re designed for a specific role, for directional light, not as a dining lamp. Sure you can suspend one on a lanyard but you’ll be blind by the end of the evening and they don’t provide a great ambiance. Something like the SiteLight XL from BioLite will, and it’s just as portable.
Designed to hang from a branch, in a tent or under a tarp, the SiteLight XL is a collapsible fabric lantern that packs easily and expands into a sphere like shape lighting up to 300 lumens of dimmable ambient light. Set on fifteen feet of cord and daisy-chainable, the SiteLight XL can be powered by any USB source with the included adapter or with BioLite’s own BaseLantern or PowerLight. Weighing just 92-grams it can be packed down into a pocketable stuffsack that can be stashed away in your backpack or carry case.BUY $30
