Whether you hang it above your hammock, set it down flat, or hold it by hand, the Moonshine Lantern by Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) provides bright light from a compact source.
Lightweight, packable and convenient, the Eagles Nest Outfitters Moonshine lantern is the perfect companion when you are hanging out in your hammock after the sun sets. We will take a look at all the features and what makes this little lantern so special.
As you can see, we have got the Moonshine lantern hanging from a ridge line above our Eagles Nest Outfitters hammock here and that is its intended purpose. You can hang it right above your hammock on a ridge line. If you have a complete system and it already has a line above you, it makes it really convenient. You have got a nice little hook right her on the top. So it hangs really well. It can spin and move and it is not going to fall off of there. So that is really nice. But that also tucks away. So you can use this lantern up-side down if you need to. Just set it on a table top. It makes it great for just regular car camping when you have got a picnic table or something like that.
You have a nice frosted globe on the top there so you can look at the light. It is not going to blind you. It provides a really even light.
And there is a couple of different settings on this light as well. So you have got one single push button that allows you to strobe through the different settings. Right now we have it on the bright white light. It is an even light. At the highest setting it is 60 lumens, so that provides a nice, nice comfortable light there in your hammock. And the second setting is a dimmer light. So it saves a little bit of battery. If you are reading at night and you don’t need a really bright light, this makes it really convenient. And then you also have a colored light. So that is the third setting. This happens to be a red light on this particular lantern here. The fourth setting is a strobe. So the red light strobes there. It makes it a great safety feature as well can provide a fun little light at your campsite at night.
In order to turn off the lantern, it is really easy. You just have to hold in the push button until the light turns off. So it is really simple to use there.
This is powered by three triple A batteries and the way to get to the battery housing is really simple. There is notches on here that make it easy to just unscrew. So if I undo that you can see the battery housing here. Lightweight three triple A batteries and the batteries are really easy to change out.
This is a really versatile little light. I can see it being used in many different ways. Inside of a tent most tents have gear loops so you could either hang it above you with this little hook here. If you have a gear loft, it would fit really nicely just inside the gear loft. Or if you are playing cards in a tent or something like that, you could even put it on the floor and have even light there. If you are inside of a shelter you could hang it above you, have really even light in a shelter at night. Or, of course, it is made by Eagles Nest Outfitters for hammock camping. So it makes a really convenient little light for that as well.
My first impressions of it, it is really lightweight. It is packable. You could throw it inside your pack and not really notice that it is there.
The globe on here is really flexible. So I don’t have any worries about that breaking or anything like that. The light on the inside is protected by that globe. And with the batteries they are so easy to change out.
It is not waterproof by any means, but I can see it being pretty water resistant or weather resistant in a very light rain.
With its simple design and all the little features here, it makes it a really great companion of car camping, family camping. You can take it into the backcountry and string it above your hammock.
It is the Eagles Nest Outfitters Moonshine lantern.
