Goal Zero Unveils Lighthouse250 Lantern and Partners with Eddie Bauer to Launch Solar Powered Tent at Outdoor Retailer – Booth BR601


Salt Lake City - Being off the grid doesn’t necessarily mean being left in the dark. Goal Zero is lighting up campsites at Outdoor Retailer this week with its new Lighthouse 250 Lantern & USB Power Hub and the solar powered Katabatic 2 tent, a joint venture with Eddie Bauer.

“Technology plays big role in the time we spend outdoors. It allows us to track, photograph, and share our adventures with friends and family,” said Joe Atkin, President and CEO of Goal Zero. “The Lighthouse 250 and Katabatic 2 tent provide the power and light to help take advantage of that technology in even the most remote locations.”

The 250 lumen Lighthouse provides up to 48 hours of bright LED light on a single charge. Adventurers can power the lantern via USB before heading out or with the integrated hand crank once they’re in the field. Lighthouse doubles as a recharger that can be used to power mobile devices like MP3 players, smartphones, GPS, e-readers and tablets. 

The new lantern can also be charged with one of Goal Zero’s solar panels (7-hours), like the 18-watt monocrystaline, weather resistant panel supported by Eddie Bauer’s new Katabatic 2 tent. Eddie Bauer partnered with Goal Zero while designing the roomy 36-square-foot tent to integrate solar and provide convenient wiring access so outdoor enthusiasts can power up their Goal Zero Sherpa 50 or Yeti Solar Generator while protected from the elements.

“Eddie Bauer is focused on inspiring and enabling people to live their adventure by creating products that continue to push the limits of functionality and innovation. And for more than 90 years, we have partnered with guides to help build those exceptional products,” said Mark Correll, Gear Division Product Manager, Eddie Bauer. “As the industry leader in harnessing solar power, Goal Zero was the natural expert for us to collaborate with in the creation of our solar powered Katabatic 2 tent, designed to power expeditions at any altitude.”

Learn more about both products at the Goal Zero booth - BR601 in the Salt Palace Convention Center -100 SW Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101.
