    Details

    Smaller size. Lighter weight. Just as bright.

    Black Diamond's little Orbit Lantern turns into a precise flashlight for versatile lighting on your backpacking trips. The Orbit is basically a scaled-down version of the Voyager, but it still boasts the same lumens for the same amount of light. Hang the lantern over your kitchen table with the collapsible double-hook hang loop, and the lantern's DoublePower LED will illuminate everything within 50 feet. As a flashlight, the Orbit uses another DoublePower LED to help you find food out of the your car's trunk.

    In darkness, there is light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great little light for camping and backpacking, especially for the price. The dim settings and the ability to switch from lantern to flashlight or even both make it a must have inside my tent.

    Bright!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Orbit is pretty awesome. It doesn't take up any room in the pack, and it's way brighter than I expected for being so small. The flashlight mode is a nice touch for nighttime route-finding to the privy when the headlamp is nowhere to be found.

    Favorite piece of gear

      When I purchased this online, I didn't really look at the tech specs. I was surprised by how small it is but this packs a punch. The dual mode is perfect in the tent. Hang this puppy from the gear hooks and you have light all around but turn on the flashlight portion and it is perfect for lights. I also took this to Haiti for a mission trip and it was awesome. I might get 30 more just for fun.

      Nice upgrade!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This is an incredible upgrade from the first orbit that I had. It was only 45 lumens! So to have this now in 105 lumens AND a flashlight added to it is just awesome. I am very happy with this purchase. Was debating whether or not to buy the Black Diamond Helix Backcountry. This was cheaper and had a little more burn time.

      Big light in a small package

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I was expecting a big lantern when I ordered it - imagine my surprise when the package arrived! It's a little guy, fits in your hand, but puts out tremendous light. It's even been eyed covetously by fellow campers for its small size. It is lightweight and its hanging hook is cool, if not a little clumsy at times. It hangs easily from the top loop in my MSR hubba for when I am preparing for bed. I am a light hoarder and stash it in my backpack on hikes. The battery life is a little short, unfortunately, but it's still worth the trouble. I ordered the black lantern which is sort of a charcoal grey.

      Just meh

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This lantern is just alright to me. For whatever reason the battery life in mine has never been great, which is odd for LED. Beyond that, if I leave batteries in it, they will almost always be drained the next time I go to use the lantern if it has been stored for any length of time. Light output is great for around camp, and I really liked the hook mechanism for hanging it from various objects. All around if my battery issue is unique and not typical I would definitely use this lantern often.

      Packs a Punch

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      So far I have only used it in smaller spaces such as a tent or bedroom, but this little guy packs a punch for its size. It was bright enough to help set up a tent after sunset and lit everything perfectly for a little reading/cribbage once under shelter. It's also very light weight - perfect for weekend trips or fitting in a carry on. So far, so good.

      Packs a Punch

      Does the job.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      For a small lantern, this packs a bit of punch. We usually use one for outside, and one for the tent.

      It's small and simple, and lasts for a while off of 4 AAA batteries. I wish the sliding mechanism was a bit sturdier, but the construction seems appropriate for the price.
