I have more than 15 years of backpacking experience. Day hikes and 2-3 day backpacking trips take place on most weekends throughout the year while longer trips are only occasional. I backpack predominantly in
mountain terrain (Coast Range, Cascades and Canadian Rockies) with the goal of summiting peaks. Activities I use my gear with include mountaineering, ski touring, rock climbing, kayaking, biking, trail running, Search and Rescue and overseas travel. I like my gear to be reasonably light, convenient and simple to use though I would not claim to be a lightweight hiker.
I have some upcoming Ski-tours (tenting and/or hut-hut) in March and April. May and June climbing/hiking trips planned (tenting). I will have no trouble meeting the minimum overnight requirements. I'm interested in how the light performs as a task light and as a diffused lantern. I should be able to compare both its use in a tent as well as in a hut. I'm very curious to see how it would be to solar charge it and how long the charge lasts, etc. With the light and condensed packaging it seems like Luci has the potential to be a nifty alternative light source for the back-country.
