Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want one but mine refuses to die! I am writing this review because a friend has this lantern and I have used it. I want one of the newfangled dual-fuel lanterns but my current Coleman fuel lantern, which I have had for about 40 years, simply refuses to die! In all the time I have owned it, the only repairs have been: one pump kit, one glass and hundreds of mantles. It is easy to light, easy to use and is rugged & durable as, well, you know. It is not for mountaineering (heavy/bulky) but excellent for camping or emergency light when the electricity goes away. Just get one. See also my review of the Coleman dual-fuel 2-burner camp stove (it says the same things).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great output This lantern puts out a ton of light. Before using this though, I was used to battery powered ones so getting it going for the first time was a bit frustrating (the problem with the 1st run was that we had the mantles tied on too high and didn't pre-burned them enough before enclosing them). After re-interpreting the instructions and starting the lantern properly, it burned brightly and for the entire night on less then one fill of fuel. We don't use this inside or next to the tent and think we'll stick to the LED lanterns for that. For lighting large areas though, this will be coming with us for all of our car camping trips. -get the carrying case; it's worth the couple extra bucks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money This lantern is worth the money if you want the option of dual fuel. I used this on two hunting trips. Once in eastern Montana in cold weather for a 4 day trip. This was our only lantern and it served us well. It produces plenty of light and was fairly quiet. Although it was hard to hear over the Montana winds hitting our tent. Additionally I have used it on a coastal Washington elk hunt for 4 days. it performed flawlessly. Other than that I have used it on two car camping trips with the family as well. The adjustments to the light output were fine. I did not have any problem with low light adjustments which I had read about. There is a lot of burn time with the fuel tank full. It appears Coleman is still making this product right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lantern i've used this lantern for standard car/tent camping for over three years. it functions exactly as i'd hoped and expected. it burns bright, only needs occasional pumping over the course of a full evening's use. brighter than the propane version. the only note would be the filling, if you choose to go with this (over the propane version). with the standard funnel it can be tough to gauge, which leaves you with fuel leaking on the lantern. not that big a deal, but i think you would want to buy the filler cap (Coleman Fuel Filler Model No.3000000928) which fits coleman cans. basically it has reduced this process to zero spill, it stops when the tank is full so there's no guessing. the only other piece of decision making information would be, consider if you're going to also have a coleman stove. you'll want to make sure you've considered both as you'll want a common fuel source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivered damaged; immediatly replaced! I have had one of these since 1992 (Peak 1 model) that I have used for hunting trips and camping. It starts without fail. I just pulled it from the garage, changed the mantel and lite it after 3 years of storage. I just purchased this full size one for a new hunting camp in Maine. All my Coleman products have lasted for years I am certain this new lamp will be in the camp for years to come. Buy and keep extra mantels and you wont need them! Dont and you will wish you had!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Longevity The Coleman fuel-powered lantern may just be the last evidence we have of a time when products were built to last and always worked when you needed them to. I don't even pack LED lanterns much anymore; usually a headlamp and flashlight but sometimes I just want to feel the heat and enjoy the hiss. Light up this lantern and it's 1960 again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more propane bottles! I bought this about two months ago, primarily because I had gotten tired of purchasing, then storing partial propane bottles for my other lantern. Also, proper disposal of all those bottles was a bit inconvenient. And lastly, I spend several trips a year in sub-freezing temps, when propane-fueled equipment tends to have problems. I figured that with this lantern I could finally put an end to all of that. Well, that worked out just fine. What I didn't count on was the overall higher quality of this lantern. For instance, the globe appears to be significantly thicker than its propane counterpart. Also, they've built the lantern with a type of leaf spring assembly to set the globe on to further protect it from damage. This thing is built to last. Fueling the lantern can be a bit messy if you're not careful, but after a couple times I found I could fuel the lantern without spilling any extra gas, as long as I used the rather ingenious filler funnel.. As for function, I've only taken it out twice, but so far it has functioned flawlessly. The only negative I have about this lantern is that it didn't come with a hard carrying case (or any case at all, for that matter). I discovered later that Coleman does in fact sell a case for this lantern, and even a lantern set that includes the case. It would have been nice to have that option at the time of this purchase. This is the only reason I didn't give this item 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic, Bright, Reliable, Quiet The white-gas/multifuel Coleman, two-mantle lantern is a reliable classic: easy to use, lots of light, low-noise, and simple maintenance. They are excellent for car-camping, RV use and base camps with large groups. The mantle system is easy to maintain, but fragile in the face of rough treatment such as jostling or banging the light around -- this is not one to let the kids use unless they're careful and responsible. Of course, liquid fuel lanterns require one to use a match or extended lighter, and there is always the chance of fire or mistakes if one isn't reasonable...think about that if this is for kids, young scouts, etc. The top of the lantern gets very hot (ie like something over a burner would do) and can be the source of burns to fingers that touch the knurled top nut or the cap-shield while the lantern is on. The Coleman burns brightly and quietly, is very easy to adjust from very dim to quite bright, and is extraordinarily reliable in cold and windy weather. It's brighter and lasts longer than almost all electric lanterns and becomes very economical over time as the only recurring costs will be fuel and replacement mantles. Mantle replacement is very simple. Unless jarred or touched, a mantle might last decades. We had two that went for 30 years on one of our Coleman lanterns, and I have some that last 30 days, due to being jounced around in the bed of our pickup. The plastic cases available for these are excellent, and they've got a storage spot for spare mantles in the bottom.
