Why We Like It

This is a revolutionary approach to lighting on the go! Originally developed by two students to aid in areas hit by natural disaster, this innovative item got a kickstart with a successful showing on Shark Tank. The PackLite 16 packs flat, is highly portable, and water resistant. It provides up to 30 hours of consistent LED light and can be easily recharged in the sun, ideal for recreational use outdoors or in the home as an extra light source. It has two, extra bright LEDs that provide over 65 lumens on the Extra Bright setting and a 32-hour flashing mode. It also floats, making it an awesome item for night kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding.


The Cairn Crew likes to team up with innovative brands that seek to make a positive impact on this world. LuminAID is one of the brands that is doing it right. 1.6 billion people around the world lack proper access to electricity. Many of these people are forced to rely upon dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene lanterns as their primary source of light. Through LuminAID’s Give Light, Get Light program, they partner with NGOs and non-profits all over the world to distribute LuminAID lights to individuals who will greatly benefit from a safe, rechargeable light source. We’re pumped to join them in their mission to make light more accessible and sustainable for all!

The PackLite 16 is made of a durable and weather-resistant TPU plastic material (100% PVC-free). It inflates to diffuse the LED light and create a lantern. The PackLite 16 will easily light up a 125 sq. ft space. Tuck it away in your first-aid kit or hook it on your backpack for your next adventure!
