fenix E01
The new version of the fenix E0 is out the E01, which is twice as bright (more or less) with the same run time, 10+ hours then moon mode. I have the older E0, and that is a decent amount of light ...

tarps
Are you going to be below treeline or above treeline/out on the tundra? It will be harder to rig a tarp if you won't have trees, and you may get a lot more wind, and so you may want to get a t...
