Black Diamond Equipment LTD is among the most repitable of outdoor companies. Backpacker Magazine picks the Black Diamond Orbit Lantern as 2009 Editors Choice Award.

This is a must when you don’t want to use your headlamp all night as a reading lamp. The Black Diamond Orbit is lightweight and is easy to pack.

A pocket-sized, collapsible backcountry mini lantern, the Orbit is perfect for trekking and backpacking excursions where gram shaving is crucial. The 84-gram (3 oz) Orbit compacts to 102 mm (4 in) and extends in height to 140 mm (5.5 in), yet still casts a broad, six-foot radius of light. The brightness of the Orbit’s non-glaring 1-watt LED can be adjusted thanks to its dimming switch, while the dual reflectors and frosted globe maximize light output and minimize the lantern’s shadow. Cleverly designed dual hooks on top of the Orbit allow it to be quickly and securely attached to a tent or tree branch. The lantern runs on 4 AAA alkalines.
