Bought this fan for car camping. Its too heavy and big for backpacking.
I used it in July, in North Carolina in a 2 person tenth alone. It was great! The base is solid, sturdy and adjustable. The light is a nice option although they do make a version without it.
In fact, I never turned the fan on high...especially at night. And most nights I eventually turned it off. It has two speeds and actually could benefit from a third.
This is a solid fan and I will consider other products by O2 Cool in the future.
