The compact design of this lantern provides a perfect amount of light for one person - up to 300 lumens - and saves space for other gear when you pack. A quick match strike is all you need to get your lantern started, then simply dial in the perfect brightness with the adjustable control knob. Once your lantern is lit, the chain handle allows for easy hanging. Meanwhile, the globe guard helps protect the globe from breaking. No matter where you go, the PerfectFlow pressure control technology produces a steady fuel stream and consistent performance in all kinds of weather.
The Coleman 5132A700 One-mantle Compact Propane Lantern is the lantern that made camping cozy, at its easiest and most portable. Clean-burning propane fuel provides a soft glow for late-night stories or a beacon to guide you back to camp. This Coleman compact lantern lights with matches and is pressure-regulated for consistent light, regardless of weather. The porcelain ventilators will prevent rusting and help this lantern last you a long time.
Powered by one 16.4 ounce propane cylinder (not included), this handy little lantern features slip-on mantles and a chain handle that can be used for carrying or hanging.

The lantern arrived well packaged and the instructions were easy to follow. Installing the mantle, burning it, and placing the globe on all went quickly and easily. The mantle does seem like it is fairly safe inside the unit, so I am not really all that concerned that it will get damaged while in storage, but I did do as other reviewers requested and ordered extras through Amazon (I have checked in stores since doing so, and the other's are correct, they are no where to be found in the local stores).
I highly recommend this lantern, and I look forward to using it for many years.
I've had this lantern for approximately a year (bought in February 2013) and I'm still using the original mantle! In fact, I just drove a nail into a floor joist in my basement today so that I could have light above my computer keyboard this winter. It puts out a LOT of light, and although the top metal piece of the lantern housing discolors due to the heat output, it's not a negative.
I have used this on the CT shoreline in the middle of winter when the wind is howling, while walking along the beach at night. There is a noticeable "wherrrrrr" noise from the gas escaping into the combustion chamber, but that's comforting and constant, knowing the high-quality light and heat is available. Lighting the lantern in high-wind situations is difficult without a wind-break, but not impossible.
Lighting the lantern is as simple as letting some gas into the chamber by turning the knob several times (for metered blasts of propane to reach the spark), and by the 4-5 time, ignition happens. It's reliable, and works as it should. I've never had to use matches or a lighter to light this lantern.
Cleaning the mantle glass is as easy as waiting for it to cool, unsnapping the top metal guard (no screws), and lifting it out. I wash it with Dr Bronner's liquid hand soap mixed with water in a foaming hand soap dispenser at a 50% mixture. I let it dry, and use a lint-free cloth to remove fingerprint oil and water deposits.
The hanging chain is definitely long enough to keep your hand cool on summer nights, though if you're hanging the lantern, be aware that without adequate breezes or wind, any objects immediately above the lantern (including the chain itself, hook, nail, tree branch, etc that you're hanging the lantern from) will heat up and might present a burn hazard. Allow the lantern to cool or wear heavy gloves before moving the lantern, even when moving the lantern by the hanging chain. An alternate method of moving it would be to grip the lantern by the propane tank, though this isn't recommended. It would be hard to get a good grip on the tank.
I'm thinking about finding a way to hang the lantern in a way similar to in-car cupholders, in my house. Creating a sling or "holster" for the 1lb tank, and hanging that securely on an interior wall would provide safe, effective, and house-friendly lighting at a relatively low cost. No batteries to give out, no gasoline to go bad, this lantern is the perfect solution to power outages!
When the lantern is in use, if it's humid out, condensation does form on the propane bottle. Ask a physics teacher why (it'll take too much space here). If you're going to set your lantern down on a surface such as wood, be certain to have a placemat or some other absorbent, yet firm, material underneath, to catch the drips without presenting a tipping hazard.
Finally, the actual gas usage of the lantern is quite minimal. I have used this lantern every night for several hours, and I change the 1lb tank (which I re-fill myself using the Mr Buddy 1lb tank refill valve, and a 10lb propane tank) about every 3-4 weeks. If you turn the light up to max, the gas runs out sooner. If you turn it down to the minimum, it's a great nightlight in a cold bathroom.
Bottom line? Plenty of uses, emergency light is steady & comforting, and since it's so small, it's easy to pack up for trips!
It's been years taking that. Products have changed, and so have we. I have tried other lights, like some of the many LED or fluorescent lanterns, big and small. Most, or actually all, of them collect dust in the basement. Never have liked the quality of light from the LED, nor the archaic by now fluorescent. LED's have become better, but not so much the color characteristic of the light - too whitish/blue.
So, I returned to a favorite light we used more than 20 years ago, the Mighty-Lite I think it was called. Basically, it was the same as this light, but with the advantage of the ignition piezo. I like it because it is compact, easily packed in its box, and into the camping box. It certainly doesn't compete in sheer light output like the big ones, and doesn't hiss aloud, but one doesn't have to shield their eyes either.
I think the quality is nice, not a cheap looking/feeling product. The ignition works fine. We either hang it over the camping table, or on it, or anywhere one wants to put it. Mantels are hard to find in local sporting goods stores, even REI's flagship store here in Seattle. Save yourself looking for them - buy them online, and buy 4 or more to keep in the box as mantles can be damaged easily with too much bouncing, knocking around. The glass globe is well protected by the cage.
