Coleman Dual Fuel Lantern
Bringing Light to the Darkness
Quality - 5/5 stars
Seeing as I have dropped it from the bottom of its own case and it still works, that says quite a bit about its quality! I'm definitely NOT saying that you can absolutely abuse this thing and it will keep on working but you shouldn't feel like it's going to break the lantern globe if you look at it the wrong way. Like everything, treat it with respect and minimize accidents and it'll hold up a long time!
Usefulness - 5/5 stars
It can't just be me showing up to camp after dark all the time. Surely some of you also know the struggle of setting up in the dark. If you do, how do you feel about using headlamps and/or flashlights? Probably not as convenient having to hold the flashlight or having bugs in your face drawn in by your headlamp. A lantern then is the ideal solution as you can hang it or stand it nearby to give all the light you could possibly want! Best of all, it runs on standard gasoline or the more expensive camp fuel. I can tell you, I am much happier using regular gasoline than I am camp fuel!
Cost - 4/5 stars
I'll admit, I got this as a gift however, I was a bit shocked at the price. Maybe I am out of touch with cost of goods but I feel like you could still make do with a $30 reduction in price. That just might be me and my wishful thinking though.
Overall - 5/5 stars
This lantern does everything I ever needed a lantern to do and it does it quite well. I have never had a problem with it to date and I hope to never have a problem with it for the foreseeable future! It's a good lantern worth adding to your equipment for sure. The cost might even be offset by the reputation of the brand. Coleman knows a thing or two about camping equipment after all!
