When Princeton Tec set out to design our series of lanterns, the team took a long, hard look at which design elements would best serve the end user. Folding legs raise the Helix to provide a broader light dispersement; they also create a stable foundation that holds fast even on irregular surfaces. These lanterns hang from all different angles, whether you’re cooking, playing cards, or getting settled in the tent.

It sure is nice to bring along a few creature comforts even when you’re headed way out there. Helix Backcountry is a compact, lightweight lantern which puts out a bright beam that’s easy on the eyes - perfect for around camp or in the tent. All Helix Backcountry models have a swipe control that is free of buttons, and gives access to white and red modes, both dimmable. The expanding globe and folding legs help Helix Backcountry to shine over a wide area. The lantern design even incorporates several hanging options.
