LuminAID PackLite 12 featured in OUTSIDE Magazine as a 2015 Summer Buyers Guide PickOUTSIDE, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, has selected LuminAID to be featured in their Summer Buyer’s Guide as among the best gear to have for the summer sports season. This is LuminAID's second feature in OUTSIDE magazine, following a Game-Changing Gear Innovation distinction in 2013 for the LuminAID Solar Inflatable Light. The entire selection of 2015's products appears in OUTSIDE’s Summer Buyer’s Guide, on newsstands April 28. This year, the OUTSIDE team of adventure sports experts hit the trails on foot and on wheels, and took to rivers and lakes around the country to put all the newest shoes, bikes, boats, fitness apparel, accessories and gadgets to the test. The Summer Buyer’s Guide offers readers everything they learned from field-testing hundreds of products, making it the top resource for everyone from seasoned adventurers to venturing out for the first time. Reviews are organized by sport and activity, and include the ideal setting or experience level for each product, as well as tips for getting the most out of each gear pick. Only the best items on the market are featured in the guide.


"It's an honor to be featured in OUTSIDE magazine again." says LuminAID co-founder Anna Stork, "We are always impressed by the extensive testing their team puts in to selecting the best products, and we are very proud that our new PackLite 12 has the OUTSIDE seal of approval as we bring it to the market this spring."

“The innovations in the field of adventure and outdoor gear never cease to amaze us,” says OUTSIDE Buyer’s Guide editor Sam Moulton. “Our team of gear experts had plenty of difficult choices to make in putting together the Summer Buyer’s Guide this year, but after testing everything from hiking packs and running shoes to wearable tech and commuter bikes, we hand-picked the very best 350 products, including the fourteen very top performers that received our coveted Gear of the Year award. Once again, the issue is packed with everything you need for summer fun and adventure.”

About the LuminAID PackLite 12 is a compact, solar-powered light that twists flat and inflates into a lightweight, portable lantern. Safe, sustainable and ultra-portable, the LuminAID PackLite 12 is the perfect size to light up a tent or to keep around the house in a first aid kit. It provides up to 12 hours of consistent LED light or 32 hours in flashing mode for those emergency situations. The PackLite 12 has 12 bright LEDs and recharges with a built-in, high-efficiency solar panel in just 7 hours of sunlight. The new twist-to-close feature makes it easy to stow away for those in-a-hurry moments and the adjustable strap makes it easy to attach to your backpack to charge on the go, hang from a tent, or carry as a torch to light your path ahead!
