I really like this lantern. Plenty of light for a campsite. The light weight makes perfect for backpacking. Gives off a lot of heat too...so it doubles as a hand warmer.

Summary

Light, compact, great lil unit.

Cons

  • I don't think mantles can be reused
  • Takes a while to set up and preburn mantle

It was bright enough to light up under an awning. My only concern was this was not a fast setup device. You have to burn the mantle until it's all white which can take a few minutes. Definitely start assembly before it gets dark if this is your only means of light for the night.

The mantle appears to be brittle after use and I'm not sure it will withstand being in my hiking pack for another trip.

Overall it is great for heat and light and is light enough to pack in a backpack.
