Gear Review: Coleman’s Classic Lantern

Coleman was founded in 1905 with the creation of a classic, liquid fuel lantern. Over a hundred years later, they still make the quintessential camping lantern found in the company logo. Solidly built and reliable in a torrent, one tank of white gas will last up to 14 hours. You pump, turn the dial and light the single mantle with a match. It’s a little noisy, but this design is likely to last another hundred years.
