An innovative backpacking light that combines the precision beam of a flashlight with the ambient illumination of a lantern, the Zip Lantern does double duty for any dark night in the backcountry. Enclosed in a frosted globe, 1 LED offers 150 lumens of proximity lighting for cooking, sorting gear or looking over the map. When nature calls or its time to fill up on water, the flashlight mode features 90 lumens of precision beam to light the way. A simple collapsible hook on top makes it easy to hang from a branch or piece of accessory cord.
  • 1 LED with 150 lumens (max setting) is enclosed in frosted globe for bright, ambient light in lantern mode
  • 1 LED with 90 lumens in the bottom to provide a bright, precise beam in flashlight mode
  • Lantern, flashlight and dimming modes all operate from single switch
  • Collapsible top hang loop
  • Power button lock
  • Powered by 4 AAA batteries

Zip Lantern is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little lantern I've been using this light for almost a year now and have been very pleased with it. It is more than bright enough for your tent and usually provides an adequate amount of light at the cooking station. Without the reflective material of the tent the light dissipates quite a bit more than when used for camp lighting. An obvious statement but you never know.. Battery life is not bad, I go fairly long stints with the same set, as long as it doesn't accidentally turn on. Which, brings me to my rating, I would have given it five stars but there is no lock to prevent the light from accidentally turning on. Not a huge deal, just be conscious of where it is in your pack relative to other items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A miss for Black Diamond I love my Black Diamond Spot headlamp, so I thought this would make a great companion as a lantern/flashlight. Here are my impressions and conclusion. Good: - Ergonomic in the hand - Fairly stable standing up Great: - Aesthetics are pleasing and accessible - One button interface for dimming and switching modes Bad: - The 4 AAA batteries are uncompelling, though arguably useful - Low water resistance - Flashlight brightness is disappointing Ugly: - Build quality: large gaps in plastic housing, visible glue under lantern, battery compartment latch feels janky, plastic on hook slides off Conclusion: The Zip Lantern is appealing until you get it in your hand. Whoever worked on the Spot headlamp clearly didn't work on this - it just feels low quality. If the price drops it could be recommended with reservations, but the current version is begging for revision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Very Useful This is great everyday carry kind of flashlight. It’s small enough to fit in a pocket, if needed; so functions well as an old-fashioned hand flashlight (which I was hoping they would make; something like the Astro, but small, cylindrical, classic shape???). I mostly carry this light in my messenger bag that I take to work everyday. I use my Zip lantern and color Moji lantern almost everyday; keep them by the bed (an I weird?). I keep my Gizmo in the car, for emergencies. I’m about to pick up that new Spot 325. The only problem with the Zip lantern is there is a little space between the battery compartment door and the body. So don’t expect technical job integrity on that part. But, for basic use, it’s wonderful. I switch back and forth between the lantern and flashlight mode, depending on my need. I’m very satisfied with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looking good for my safari I purchased this lantern for my trip to Tanzania. I think it will perform nicely at our camps. Has plenty of diffused light and the flashlight is powerful too. Simple to use the various settings. Unfortunately my unit was missing the hook for hanging. Ensure your package has the hook.
