Alpkit Glowe Lantern
© Alpkit, May 2013 More compact and lightweight than it's big brother Trinity, the Glowe lantern fits perfectly into any backpackers sack. The retractable light chimney rests comfortably in the hand when using the Glowe as a torch. Then, when erected, the light chimney transforms the super bright beam into a secure unfocused glow of a lantern. Spreader feet provide stability when the Glowe is stood on a surface whilst the fold away hook allows the Glowe to be clipped into a tent or on to a convenient branch. Powered by 3xAAA batteries the Glowe can provide the comfort and security of light for over 50 hours.
