For 200,000 years, humans have navigated by the light of the Sun, Moon and Stars. With the advent of artificial light, we positioned our indoor lighting above our heads. Why? It was only natural. Activities, obstacles and changes in terrain are better comprehended by our brains when light is from above – it’s just the way we are hard wired. This why we invented the Sitka Lift Lantern System. Light from above means a safer, more comfortable way to illuminate your environment when camping at night. Ditch those ground level camping lanterns that cause eye strain and disorientation. Experience light from above – it’s the natural way to see.
“If a lantern could be your friend, it would be named Sitka.” - The Dyrt
“The new UCO collection of LED-based lanterns are easy to pack, simple to place and cast a wide, adjustable dome of light.” - Gear Institute
“As humans, we inherently expect light to come from above, like the sun or our lights at home. So in order to mimic a more cozy, indoor or sunlit environment, UCO focused on providing versatile methods for getting light overhead, in any scenario.” - The Gear Caster
