A:

The Mini is a tiny version of Snow Peak’s bigger lantern, but serves just as well in most situations, especially where small groups are concerned. The clever design uses a soft silicone shade that can take some abuse while in your pack, a rubber loop that stays closed thanks to the magnet on top, and waterproof housing. In terms of techie features, it has a low-battery indictor and three brightness modes, including one that makes it flicker like a candle.

LASTS: 70 hours
LIGHT OUTPUT: 60 lumens
WEIGHT: 3.2 ounces (with batteries)
PRICE: $40
