Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practically daylight I love this lantern because you don't need more than one to light your campsite. This is the brightest lantern you can get and it's worth the extra care you have to take to keep it safe. The REI picture doesn't show the hard case that doubles as a base/covers the fuel can. Take a look at the "lumens" so you can see how much light a lantern will throw and you'll see that this one rocks. Mantels run about one set per trip as long as you don't touch them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceptional product we used this for the first time this past weekend to do a family camping trip. it was great. it was bright and we liked that it was dimmable. previously, we have used battery operated lanterns that we had been given as gifts. we are tired of replacing batteries and bulbs. this has been a great replacement!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puts out a crazy amount of light This puts out a crazy amount of light and is relatively easy to use if you are already comfortable with propane canisters and/or camping stoves. Much better lighting than the LED options available on the market, though that technology is constantly improving. I would give it 5 stars if it were more compact. It's too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only camping light that has lasted I have used this lantern camping in all for seasons, with zero issues, for eleven years. It has been dropped and bounced around, in the case, multiple times. Come to think of it, it is the only gear that has lasted this long, besides my camping cutlery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Only used this for one night of camping so far, but it did very well. Was easy to set up and put out a lot of light. Was nice to have the case when time to pack up. After one camping trip, can't think of any negatives
