Name: Andrea Murland
Email: amurland AT shaw DOT ca
Location: Elkford & Kimberley, British Columbia, Canada
Height: 5 ft 2 in (1.57 m)
Weight: 125 lb (57 kg)
I began hiking frequently in 2006 and spend most weekends either day-hiking or
on 2-3 day backpacking trips, with some longer trips when I can manage them.
Elevation is typically 500-3,000 m (1,600-10,000 ft), in the Canadian Rockies
and the Selkirk, Purcell, and Monashee ranges.
I have a 7-night hut-based backcountry skiing trip at the end of April that I would love to take this light on. As we will be based from the same location, I would be able to get a good look at charge cycles and battery life over several nights. As well, based in a hut, I am extremely interested in the lantern qualities as opposed to my usual lighting method (a headlamp). I am hoping to get out overnight in the spring earlier in April as well, and will definitely be out backpacking in May. My usage may be stacked more towards the end of the test.
