Rated 5 out of 5 by from UCO Original Candle Lantern Kit Not an easy item to find but guess where I found it? My local REI store! I prefer to buy at a store than online so I was glad to se they had it in stock. As for the candle - it works as promised. Light weight and and adds far more to my camping experience than a battery operated torch. Rumor has it that this handy candle will heat up a small tent as well. Interesting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So close to a 5 star but... First off, love the lantern. So glad I bought it. But when it says "Red" it means Red Anodized, and mine is kinda pink. Not thrilled about that, but hey, if I drop it or something it will stand out like a sore thumb out in the woods! Can't wait to use it on the trail.
