Coleman Northstar InstaStart Propane Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Wow, a lot of light! I received this lantern as a gift, and am happy to have it. The light from this model is superlative compared to other Coleman products, and will really brighten up your campsite.  The piezo ignition is wonderful, and I won't buy another lantern without it. Having said that, when using it the first time, it was slow to ignite, resulting in a partial blow out of the mantle. No problems with the ignition system since, so perhaps there was a breaking-in that had to occur. Try… Full review

Coleman 2 Mantle Dual Fuel Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Don't abandon the idea of liquid fueled lanterns just yet! A neighbor offered me some broken down Coleman lanterns to cannibalize for parts for our Boy Scout Troop's propane versions. One of the lanterns was largely intact,  and when I found that standard mantles worked in this older version, I decided to give it a try just to burn out the old white gas in the tank.  This dual-fuel lantern (white gas and gasoline,) fired right up. As it happened, it burned side-by-side with a new Coleman propane… Full review

Coleman 2 Mantle Propane Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Works great. Lasts long. It's a great product. It does exactly what it says it will. Reliable. I would buy it again. Full review

UCO Micro Candle Lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I didn't expect much, but this lantern still disappointed me. I own an UCO led lantern and think it is an excellent product. I own an UCO Original candle lantern and it is a pretty good piece of kit. So with this tiny lantern we have an unreliable slide mechanism, cheap materials, and minimal light output. UCO, what were you thinking? I got nothin' here. Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Nice ambiance, but a headlamp outshines it without the fire risk. I've had one since 1997. Used it a few times on backpack trips. Gives OK light output, but not focused, and not super bright. It's only one candle after all. I stopped using it once the ultra-small headlamps came out. Why use a candle when you can have focused, brighter light and an extra set of batteries takes up less space and weight? Plus, I was always a little nervous with a flame inside a nylon tent.

Primus EasyLight

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The only reason I can't give the Primus Easylight a perfect score is because they're so expensive. Other than that they are incredibly well built and the travel boxes make transporting them 100% worry free. The mantles are light years better than any other brands. I've been using the same mantle for years and amazingly they never fall apart. I love them, and am very happy that I was forced into buying them during a storm that had emptied the shelves of everything but. Now that I've got them, I'd… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 5 of 5 stars My most reliable light. I've used my original UCO for 20 years and it just keeps on going. I picked up another one this past summer at REI's garage sale so my girls have one to use too. With the several years of camp fire bans here in CO having that little flicker of light tricks the mind so I at least get a glimmer of the campfire feel. When backpacking, this has been my go-to light for 20 years. It never fails, never runs out of batteries, and the candle burn time lasts for several nights. For… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a brilliant piece of gear. I love the fact it doesn't need batteries. I found this while camping with a friend. He has one and we used it for a makeshift campfire to sit around since there was a burn ban. It worked great as we sat around it and visited.  I had to get one for myself. I use the citronella candles in it to help cut down bugs in my camp. I use it to light my tent with the hook, there's no danger of fire because the flame is contained in the glass globe. I recommend this candle… Full review

Coleman Deluxe PerfectFlow Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid, reliable, simple, yet runs forever. These lanterns are plenty bright, casting usable light even on low settings to 20-30 feet, depending on how cluttered your campsite is. On the higher settings it's not unlike a 100-watt bulb in intensity and color. After it's warmed up some it can be turned way down to a much warmer, less harsh light that, once your eyes adjust, is still pretty bright.  Over the last few years, I've been able to wrangle some significant burn times out of mine. while the… Full review
