SNEAK PEEK: Lander Cairn

SNEAK PEEK: Lander Cairn

Shine a light with the Lander Cairn!

Camping is a joyous experience but for a lot of people getting a good night sleep can be arduous, but some of this can be helped by setting the mood of the lighting in and around the tent.

Being blinded with your own head torch or a hiking partner, is not ideal, it just wakes you up…again.  So, setting the mood in the tent is really helpful to get that cozy feeling to help get you off to sleep without a hitch.

Of course, there are times when you need the whole camp illuminated, so having a device that can be adjusted to cater for different times as the sun sets to when the stars come out is quite a good idea.

Masters of adventure technology, Lander are proud to release the Cairn, an ultra-bright 2-in-1 lantern that is set to light up your next adventure into the great outdoors like never before.


The Lander Cairn features a 300 lumen LED light with a fully adjustible dimmer functionality.  The Cairn also boasts a 2.1 amp USB charging port, for quick, easy-access recharge or device powering.  The Lander Cairn is also a fully rechargeable unit, thanks to the built-in 3300mAh battery!

The Cairn can be mounted pretty much anywhere with the Lander Anchor System, an innovative multi-axis reflective nylon cord. Simply choose your preferred spot and hang away – this is the definition of ‘set and forget’ technology.

Variable Dimming

The Cairn is designed to fit into any setting, be it dusk, late night or the early morning. The LED lantern in the Cairn provides warm, ample light to a large area.

At any time you can adjust the brightness to set the mood with the dimming feature, integrated into the power button. For added safety and wellbeing there’s an SOS strobe-mode.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I’m also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them.

So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • Out and about testing the Osprey Aether and Aeriel. What an incredibly comfortable pair of packs. Amazing support and harness technology make them ideal for heavy loads and longer adventures. | photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • When it comes to head protection, never ever go cheap. It's the most important piece of protection. POC do some incredible helmets and they certainly saved my bacon yesterday. 7 fractured ribs and a punctured lung, but look at what could of been. #mtbcrash #dontbuycheap
  • We're pretty excited about the @explorelander dimmer lights. Perfect for camping. 👍
  • The new range from @rocday are jaw droppingly good 😜
  • Get into the party season with HandUp gloves. 🎉
  • It's hump day and we're already thinking about the weekend. Where are you heading?
  • On extended hikes, choosing a pack that works for you can make a huge difference to the whole experience. We love this shot of our friend who knows her pack intimately. Every piece of equipment  has been carefully chosen and packed.
  • At only 1.8 ounces, the Vertex stove is as simple and lightweight as it gets.
  • If you're looking for a more natural fitting hiking, trail or road running shoe, then check out the range from @altrarunning. We did and have never looked back.
  • We just love the feeling of merino wear next to our skin. It's incredibly soft and very comfortable even on extended hikes or rides. It has amazing heat regulating properties to keep you cool or warm. The best part, it's all natural!  #merinowool
  • The quality construction of the @hentydesigns packs have blown us away. We'd be hard pressed to find this level of quality anywhere else. And guess what? It was all started by a couple of guys who used to ride their BMX bikes around Hobart as childhood mates. See! There's lots of good reasons to ride bikes. 👍
  • We are getting very excited about the new Spartan Sport range from Suunto. It may just be the ultimate adventure watch? #adventureisoutthere #gpswatch
