Show Description

Compact lighting that pulls double-duty as both a lantern and a flashlight. Versatility is a wonderful thing when space is at a premium. With its compact design providing both a wide even light that works well around camp, and a focused beam that lets you put the light exactly where you want it, it's easy to make room for the Zip Lantern. Running off of one of the world’s most widely available batteries, this little lantern also makes a great travel companion.

  • 1 LED sits behind a frosted lantern globe providing up to 150 lumens of even lighting, great around camp or during power outages.
  • 1 LED flashlight produces up to 100 lumens of focused light, great when you need to see things that are a bit further away.
  • Smooth dimming feature lets you dial in the perfect brightness for both the lantern and the flashlight.
  • 1-button interface is easy to use.
  • Collapsible hanging hook tucks out of the way when you don’t need it, and is there when you do.
  • IPX4 waterproofing means the light keeps shining even when Mother Nature has other ideas.
  • Textured case is easy to hold on to in nearly any conditions.
  • AAA batteries are easy to find almost anywhere in the world.
