    Black Diamond Orbit Lantern is rated 3.7143 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another neat product from Black Diamond This is my 3rd Black Diamond lantern. When I saw that BD now made two sizes of them with the capability of being both lanterns and flashlights, I had to get one. It works well, seems to be as sturdy as the others I have, and I'm looking forward to using it, mostly "glamping". My only disappointment is that the battery box isn't nearly as easy to use as the same size lantern without the flashlight base, hence the 4 star rating. This one is really clumsy to replace batteries, whereas the original version is extremely easy to use. Once the batteries are installed, it's fine, but getting them in without them popping out of their slots, and having to straighten the spring contacts--well, that's ridiculous. BD should have kept the original Orbit method, which is a neat capsule into which the batteries are inserted, and then the whole capsule is installed into the lantern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has the light of a larger lantern. Constructed well. Not quite as robust as the bigger Apollo model, but still great for backpacking and general camping situations. Only complaint is that it doesn't have much in the way of legs so on uneven or shaky surfaces, it'll likely tip over. Great light to hang in the tent though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BD Orbit Review? This little lantern is easy to use and gives great light output. I really like the "dim to adjust" feature by holding down the power button. It is light enough that I don't think about weight when adding it to my pack. Puts out enough light to easily make your way around camp on a moonless night or light up a big table for scary stories. The flashlight does not put out a focused beam of light, so it won't give you sight at a distance (kind of a bummer�?� but it's a lantern first, flashlight second.). The battery layout is as straight forward as it gets. Unscrew the bottom flashlight assembly and it is attached to the cartridge that holds 4 AAA batteries. Not complicated and easy to use. If you can't stand it for some reason they have a rechargeable pack you can get (not sure if you can still have the flashlight assembly if you use the battery pack so that's a buzz kill..). Just by handling this lantern I can tell you it is NOT waterproof. As stated in the description it will hold up to "sprays" of water. I would trust it in very light "misty" rain, but that's about it. I'm sure it would cost more if it was truly waterproof. Random niceties include: I can attach it to my dogs collar at night so he's visible to cars and so I can see what he starts eating on the side of the road, it won't make what you attach it to sag (tent, ridge line, etc), I attach it to the front of my pack easily when I need both hands on the trail at night, lowest setting is bright enough to play boggle in the tent and not wake anyone up. Actually boggle is a terrible example�?� how about solitaire or sudoku. Bummers: Some peoples have stopped working�?� check the little springs in the battery pack to make sure they are not pushed down. They aren't the sturdiest springs, but they're light springs you weight weenies! =] Plus you have the security blanket of REI's awesome return policy. PS: Always cary at leased two light sources! Something is bound to happen to one of them at some point. And let's be honest who ALWAYS has spare batteries on them?? I do. boom

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well if you don't rely on it. I have now had 3 of these fail on me for no apparent reason. Once it was in an emergency situation and I am lucky it was not my only source of light. I normally buy Black Diamond for reliability but they significantly missed the ball on this one.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks and dies I enjoyed this light while it lasted. It had good light output and placement options. The very first time the light sat in a rainstorm, though, hanging in the air, it leaked and died. That's unacceptable for a camping lantern.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Lantern Significant light output from such a little device. Surprisingly lightweight and packs away small enough that it will not take up any significant space in your pack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gift exchange gift So this was purchased for our family gift exchange (everyone is very much into camping or backpacking) and it was "stolen" multiple times. The receiver was very pleased and wouldn't let anyone else touch it because she thought someone might run off with it.
