Bought these as a birthday present for a friend. Disappointed to learn that although in the product description it says "You can forget about clambering around in the wet when the great British summer comes a-calling because Solar Lanterns are weatherproof" (one of the deciding factors in buying them), according to my friend, in the instructions that came with the lanterns it says to keep them out of rain and strong wind - not a lot of use in a British summer then!
