An excellent piece of kit! Well made and easy to use.
Adequate but not huge light output - but can't expect more given the size. Absence of fragile glass is a plus, but absorbs some light.
Packs in it's own little stuff-sack with a rigid plastic tube to protect it.

Had a variety of lanterns/light sources over the years for my camping trips. But this one has certainly been my best. Incredibly small and lightweight, yet gives off a superb amount of light, and also heat! (be careful where you put it/store it in your tent) Brilliant (actually, "essential") for wildcamping as it takes up so little space in the rucksack, but also recommended for bigger tents as I also use it on my family camping trips in the big 6-man tent along with the Coleman 1 Mantle Camping Lancaster (which is the best "Big Light" that money can buy). Don't bother with anything else, this is the one you need

Price matched this at GoOutdoors so got a real bargain. Bought this for backpacking as it is light and packs down small. The bag comes with a plastic shield for the lamp so it doesn't get damaged in any way. The mantle is very easy to fit and you have to burn it off prior to first use but after that it's really easy to use - just light with a match and away you go. Light and heat - just what you want on a cool dark night in the tent. It comes with a wire carrying loop that attaches to the top making it really easy to carry. I would advise caution due ot the heat coming form the lid so be mindful of where it is when you are moving about in small backpacking tents. This is a must have for any backpacker especially when wanting to conserve headlamp batteries when you've pitched and are at rest. Sturdy build quality and simplicity of operation make this a top quality product.
