Canoeing.com Definition: Waterproof or water resistant lighting is a must for canoe trips. From there, it’s all a matter of intended use. Headlamps leave hands free for cooking, reading or chores. Hand held flashlights with spot beams cast light over a longer distance. In general, lights with a flood beam and range of 20 meters will be great around the campsite, whereas a spot beam with a range of 50 meters will be better for finding your way at night or revealing curious critters around the food back. Adjustable beams provide both spot and flood light are available. For ambient light around the campsite or in the tent consider compact, durable lanterns.
