A Lantern That Repels Bugs With Military Strength

No campsite is complete without a campfire, but every campfire attracts its fair share of nasty pests and mosquitos. Thermacell's new mosquito repelling lantern is the perfect solution for the outdoorsman who wants the light without the bugs. Field-tested by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, the lantern uses a butane fueled heater to vaporize a repellant-soaked mat on top of the lantern, creating a 15' x 15' zone proven to repel up to 98 percent of mosquitos. Used by military personnel worldwide, the lantern requires four AA batteries and lasts up to about 16 hours.
Cost: $36.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
