Rated 1 out of 5 by primecustomer poor, poor quality
Have bought three of these in past and was pleased.
There must have been a vendor change because recent purchase was missing a part, in very flimsy packaging and had a much cheaper look and feel. Certainly not worth nearly $40!
At present, this is not an appropriate piece for quality-driven LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marj343 Best Lantern ever
This is one terrific lantern, it is so good, so bright, lasts 10 days...It is so good, that I just bought a new one; lent my old one, exactly the same, to someone...and it was not promptly returned, so I bought another...then called the 'borrower' and told them that my 'old' one was a present...I do love this lantern!
We seem to have frequent power outages in recent years, and this is a lifesaver...and I mean that for real...going down steps with a flashlight is dangerous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ERPJR Excellent Lantern
Well built and throws a ton of light in a 360 degree radius. Dimmer switch is handy. Four D cell batteries provide a solid base so it won't tip over easily. Comes with a plastic hook to attach to the top (wide) carry handle if you want to hang the lantern. Wide round top plastic shield keeps light rain off the lantern. Battery use: Have about six hours use on highest setting and still working fine. Will light up an entire living room in event of power loss. I use it when sitting out on the back deck at night. Typical quality and dependable LL Bean product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ReviewfromMD Best lantern indoors and outdoors
Great lantern indoors and outdoors. When the power goes out this is the lantern to have. Light has dimmer which is a plus when you don't need the bright light. Ordered one for our family and my nephew and niece wanted one in case the power goes out, which is frequent where they live.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LennyFromNewark Well-made, bright lantern
I purchased this lantern in case we had another power failure. It throws off lots of light, much more than a flashlight, in a 360 degree pattern. This lamp is nicely made, sturdy and substantial, and is perfect for lighting up hard to reach places as well. Really good emergency lantern, unlike those cheap copies.

We live in Florida and needed a battery operated light for storms and power down times. This gives great light. Battery lasts a long time. Light weight. Great for our emergency needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunteaDrinker sturdy bright useful!
This lamp delivers! I've had it for a few weeks. It's tough enough to withstand a little water spill. Tough enough to handle kids. Bright enough to light the barn. Great VALUE!

A great lantern to have around for a lot of uses. It's light weight. It's very bright with adjustable beam. A lot nicer than the old, big heavy ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMDintino Nightlight solution
I bought this lantern to go camping with my family. It seemed like it was great for brightness and to be able to dim down for a nightlight. It was perfect for our week long tenting trip. Having young kids, we kept it on the lowest setting every night through the entire night. I was really impressed that it lived up to it's title of "10 days." We used it continually for the entire week and longer, and I still have not had to replace the batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mortongirl works great
We really like this latern. It is just as advertised. It can be used indoors or outdoors, making it very useful. We will keep it in the house to use for winter power outages but expect to use it also for our summer camping trips. It can be hung from the ceiling of a tent or used on a picnic table to cast a soft light. It has a pretty good beam when turned all the way up to maximum power.
