Give Your Campsite a Glow Up with These Camping Lanterns

By Mike Richard of Men's Health | Slide 2 of 12: $69.99Shop NowWe’ve long been fans of BioLite’s clever and innovative portable outdoor gear (honestly, you haven’t camped until you’ve camped with a FirePit+). The brand’s new Alpenglow 500 might be our favorite camping lantern ever. The simple, orb-like design is handsome enough for home use, yet rugged and versatile enough to take on almost any camping expedition. The 500-lumen model delivers just the right brightness for most campsites. Plus, we especially love the multiple lighting modes, including cool white, warm white, candle flicker, and even a multicolor “party mode.” Our only minor quibble is that the power button is a bit too easy to access, making accidental presses a real possibility when stashed in a backpack. The Alpenglow can be locked to avoid this, but the method for doing this isn’t immediately obvious if you haven’t read the instructions. This model is a bit too large for backcountry trips, but the lighter and more portable Alpenglow 250 is perfect.Brightness: 500 lumensSize: ‎6.69 x 4.21 x 4.17 inchesWeight: 13.7 ouncesRead More: Best Camping Gifts
