I'm in the middle of updating and completing a hurricane kit and I was looking for a compact and lighter weight lantern. This fit the bill. Now here's the thing. Everything I keep in my BOB is a trade-off: size, weight, function, price etc. CC really excels at finding stuff that hits the sweet spot. One of the things that could make you apprehensive is the use of so much plastic. You have to decide what your trade-off is. I think the fit and finish are very nice and it seems sturdy enough that you could drop it on grass a whole bunch of times without worrying about it. It's camp site sturdy for sure, but in urban situations, concrete and hardwood floors wouldn't be so forgiving but it would probably be fine. I'm okay with that trade-off because on the other side, the way it's made allows it's to be very compact and put off a lot of light for it's weight and size. The light itself weighs very little past the 4 AA batteries it runs on. I really like how little weight and room it takes up in my BOB and the legs are a nice feature. The $14 dollar price point really seals the deal. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Very pleasantly surprised with the quality of these lights for the cost. We routinely use these, along with the AAA version, for things such as camping, power outages, various tasks, etc. great quality and light output for the price. The ability to use commonly available AA batteries is a huge selling point for me.
