Freescape Lantern from Gerber
People have dimmer switches in their homes, why not while camping? The Freescape lantern includes a touch sensitive control for dimming or brightening the light. It uses three AA batteries and sends light out the side lens, but is also designed to focus light down when hanging inside the tent or above a table, kind of like recessed lighting in your front room. Available February 2014. www.gerbergear.com
The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at items spotted at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought it would be nice to see what new gear will be coming in the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will run in the Tribune.
