I ended up grabbing one a few days ago from REI because of the so called windstorm the Seattle area was supposed to have. Not.
I was standing there trying to figure out which one to get. I looked at it this way... If I am climbing I am not going to bring a lantern, if I am car camping or doing a snow cave overnighter weight isn't going to be that much on my mind. That is why I went with the larger lantern. More lumens in the newest one is plenty bright. The new one has 140 lumens in the lantern at 13 hours on high and 100 hours on low. 50 lumens in the highest flashlight mode.
How much will I use it? I will most likely use it around the house more than taking it with me.
Why does Backcountry have the lower lumen one for the same price as the available higher lumen one that is out? Who knows? You now know this one is not the newest one, so save your money and get the brighter one elsewhere, or until they get the next generation one in stock.
