Zip Light

When the sun sets at camp, use the Black Diamond Zip Light to walk around camp and get into your tent. A combination of a lantern and flashlight, the Zip Light is a welcome addition to your car camping or backpacking kit. LED lights provide bright, clear illumination as well as being energy efficient so you can get the most mileage out of the four triple A batteries needed to power it. The IPX4 waterproof rating means that it can withstand rain and snow, and will still work if it takes a quick drop into the lake or in the creek.


  • A flashlight and lantern combination for backpacking and camping
  • LED lights provide clear, bright illumination with multiple settings

This little unit seemed to be the ticket but after only two short trips into the backcountry it just stopped turning on. Checked all connections and battery orientation but still no luck. Then several months later suddenly it worked again and seemed great but after one night of use, repeated attempts to get it to turn on have failed. A waste of pack space. Will go back to my trusty UNO candle lantern. By the way...Love the BlackDiamond head lamps, just not this.

Good little light

I wouldn’t recommend it as a backup when hiking as it’s not super bright and a little too heavy. However, it’s a great little light for camping. It’s perfect to hang in my tent while changing or to take to use the facilitrees. This is not great for backpacking but is good for car camping.

Outstanding light but attracts bugs

I love this little light. Tough, reliable, relatively lightweight, easy to use. I only wish it was offered with either a colored (amber) globe, or colored leds to prevent drawing every flying insect at night. Red and blue globes wouldn't hurt either for folks worried about their night sight. Maybe swappable globes? As it is I'm going to research what plastic the globe is made from and look into tinting it with a dye. This minor quibble aside, the light is perfect.

Perfect for Backpacking

Got this for a light weight way of lighting a campsite after a day of hiking. Just enough light to avoid tripping over everything. Lasts long enough to get a weekend trip on a single set of batteries. I just hook it to the ridge line of a tarp and I'm set for the night.
