On my bicycle tours I keep a headlight in my handle bar bag to have a light when I arrive in the dark. To keep the bag weight low I bought the HL10 and I have been very happy. For use in and around the tent you want a smooth wide beam and a low intensity setting, and that is precisely what this light offers. I was concerned about battery life, but one high quality rechargeable AAA easily lasted three weeks camping in Italy. But don't expect to use it for mountain running at night, or for reading in your tent every evening.
I also use it around the house for little repairs where I need a decent light that is not too bright.
