Camping is a great family activity. Allowing the family to experience the great outdoors and having the essential equipment with you will certainly help make your camping trip much more enjoyable.
Many campsites no longer allow camp fires. Therefore one of the main accessories you will need will be some form of lighting and the recommended choice is a Coleman lantern.
Even in areas where they allow a camp fire it is often necessary to have extra light when the sun starts to go down. Without the lights of the city, it gets quite dark after the sun sets. Your Coleman lantern will allow you to maneuver around your campsite as well as look for things you might need to use after it gets dark that are outside of the campfire light, in your tent or in your car.
Occasionally you find some campsites with electrical lighting but again,when it starts to get dark, it gets harder to see and you will frequently find you need to use your Colman lantern to move around the campsite.
Torches are good for when you are walking to the showers or toilets at night, but the area that they can light is very limited. Ideally your extra lighting choice should be a Coleman lantern. Specially designed, Coleman lanterns help to light a much wider area, which means that your day doesn't have to end as soon as it starts to get dark. Coleman lanterns are guaranteed to last longer than most lanterns and will provide you with reliable lighting.
Coleman lanterns combine the cumulative wisdom of a century of lantern designs with a steady stream of innovative ideas. They make dozens of models, operated on propane, liquid fuel and batteries.
Whichever Coleman lantern you choose to go with you can expect to see long lasting good quality lanterns. Whether you are looking for an indoor or an outdoor light source, a Coleman lantern will give you long reliable service at a very reasonable price.
From day one, when W.C Coleman stepped to the drawing board with a better idea, he realized gas would burn cleaner and more efficiently than the smoky, smelly kerosene which fueled the lanterns of the time.
The standard lamp of the era burned kerosene which also produced a smoky, flickering, yellowish light.
W.C. was stricken with very poor eyesight, and was very interested in this new, steady white light that enabled him to read even the smallest print in books and on medicine bottles. Coleman saw potential in the new light, and through his vision a new company was born that would eventually make his name synonymous with outdoor fun.
What started out as a lamp that could light up four corners of a barn has become a company that has helped light all four corners of the globe.
Coleman has built more than 50 million of them, since W.C. Coleman made the first one in 1901. That's a lot of lanterns. It's hardly an exaggeration to say they know more about designing outdoor lighting products than anyone else.
Hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, four-wheeling, relaxing, tailgating…Being in the outdoors has so much to offer, and Coleman lanterns have everything you need to help you get out there.
