JOBY GorillaTorch Switchback
Use the JOBY GorillaTorch Switchback as a headlamp or a lantern—it's your choice. As a headlamp, the Switchback offers your three choices of LED light modes, and as a lantern this light is powerful enough to offer 360-degree illumination inside a medium-sized tent. Just pop the headlamp into the lantern case and pop the lantern lens up and out of its self-storage case.
- Headlamp is made of high-impact plastic, and the case is IPX-4 water resistant so it can handle moderate wet weather
- Design lets you use Switchback as a headlamp or a lantern
- Headlamp uses five LED bulbs: one white light, two white flood lights, and two red lights for night vision
- Multiple light modes allow you to dim your headlamp and flip between LED options with a push of a switch at the back of the headband
- Headlamp is powered by two AA batteries so the power source is compact
- Lantern lens boasts 92% light efficiency so it shines brilliant, even light on your campsite
- Lantern collapses into its own case when not in use and pops out of the case when you need some table light
- Folding hook allows you to hang the lantern

I love the idea... anyone know how much this thing weighs? Couldn't find it on specs. 1 pound and some odd ounces max would be great!

I'm not finding exacts either. However, its definitely under 1 pound total.
