The glass globe broke

So I bought the mesh globe. Although it does dim the brightness a bit, the mesh globe becomes more of practical piece of equipment during field transitions. Breaking camp doesn't have to mean literally breaking your equipment. In this age of sleek light weight equipment, I also look for equipment that can hold up to frequent use. If you haven't broken the glass globe yet, you will notice that lighting new mantles can cause the black suit to build up on the glass dimming the light as well.

Regarding the comment about black suit on the globe, per the instructions, new mantles should be lit for the first time with the globe off.
