          This is a very well designed little lantern that easily fits in your pocket or pack. The unique design of the hook make it simple to attach to almost anything in your tent. It provides ample room to illuminate the inside of your tent. I've only used in in a 2P tent but would imagine it would work just as well in a 4P. I don't think it puts out puts out enough light to use as a reading light but you would have to decide that yourself. The controls are intuitive and the fact that you can operate it in either lantern or flashlight or both mode is a really neat feature. It doesn't seem like the flashlight has overwhelming brightness but would do as a backup. I still rely on my headlamp at night. IMHO, it's a little pricey so you may want to wait till it goes on sale.

            This light rocks. Dimmable light, doesn't weigh down roof of tent or ridge line. Easy to learn controls. I've read some have trouble with battery compartment ,I haven't experienced any and don't expect to with any of Black diamond's equipment, they build it to last. Light output is awesome for it's size, remember it's small AND light, don't be thinking it's a gas lantern. But for use in a tent, or a little extra light around camp or those late night trips when nature calls, this is the bomb. Battery life is good with better batteries, remember, they are AAA's and with weight savings you have to give up a little burn time it's plenty for a weekend trip. The flashlight is OK it works best at providing light directly under the lantern, handy when reading in the tent at night. The dimmer remembers your last setting so when you turn on in a dark tent in the middle of the night it won't blind you as some lights do. Hanging clip works great when moving lantern around campsite, no more tying on a rope just to untie later and repeat elsewhere. I compared many lights and this had the best all around features, buy it and you won't regret it later.
