Rated 5 out of 5 by BethanyC Excellent Small-ish Camping Lantern
I never review anything, but had to review this. We ordered this for our kid's first camping trip, figuring she could carry it, too (she is 4). It is small and light, but its size is deceiving. It's very sturdy, gives off very good light, and the two levels of brightness are great. A nice option is the red light, too, which is a great nightlight as kids fall asleep in a tent. And is light enough to hang from the tent roof. A very clever lantern. Am buying a second one and foresee these being Xmas gifts this winter. HIGHLY recommend this light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robinowl A nifty lantern
The Lookout Camp Lantern is just what I needed for the occasional blackouts of long duration that we get. It is attractive, easy to carry, gives a lot of light, even for reading, and is much safer than candles.
It even provides a light in my closet, where I keep it. I have shown it to friends, all of whom say they will have to get one. I heartily recommend this product.

This is the cutest little lantern ever! It's handy when the lights go out ( and in New England that can happen a lot!). I also bought one for my son for his house. He also camps in the summer. Well worth the money.

Got this lantern for a new shed. The shed is 8x8x10. Provides plenty of light to see everything. Got it hanging on a hook in the middle of the shed an it provides plenty of light. I like that I can take it off the hook and hold it if there is a specific area I need light.
I would recommend this lantern.

I recently received this lantern and have only briefly tested it. Everything works as advertised. I intend it for power failures and the lower illumination setting seems to give adequate light for walking around a darkened house. I think you could read a book at the table on low, but certainly on high. The lumen output and battery life were much superior to the smaller lantern you sell. If I had an opportunity to use it for many hours in an actual blackout and it performed as well as in test I would have rated it five stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by smalltown1 Average at best
I purchased the lookout lantern to use while camping and during power outages. Upon receiving the lantern, I inserted fresh batteries and cycled through the four settings. I observed little difference between the high and low setting. The output is comparable to lighting a few candles at best. Very disappointed and would not recommend if you need to illuminate a room. It may be bright enough as a secondary light while camping such as a dim light to dress or undress with. On a positive note, it does have a decent build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperNH Great Service-As Usual
As usual, LL Bean has provided great service and great products. My Camp Lanterns arrived quickly and after adding batteries, they worked perfectly. When living in Maine there is only one place to shop-LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DDFROMTN Great little lantern
I bought 3 of these for Christmas gifts and they all loved them. It has so many uses. You can turn it on and set it somewhere instead of having to hold a flashlight in one hand and do whatever with the other hand. I have used mine several times when electricity has gone off. It will light up a room. Gave one to a teenage driver to keep in his car as it has a red light and the red light will flash if need be.
Great to use if you have car trouble.
