This light is the small, portable, more compact version of the 8D cell unit. It is designed to be compact enough to fit into places where the bigger ones can't fit. It's designed to be lesser weight than the full sized ones. The weight thing comes with a trade-off. If you want to cut weight, you cut down on strength. I've handled this light quite a bit and even intentionally bumped it pretty hard. It doesn't seem too fragile.
Light emissions are very good. I agree that switch placement on the top seems strange but not that big of a deal. I wasn't really planning on use outside, as it will mostly be an emergency light backup for power outages. As such, it seems to be built very well.
The carry handle makes an excellent structure, when down, to build an aluminum foil reflector on, or you can easily mold one on the side of the globe.
When the top is retracted into the case, the unit is very small and compact. A nice design for storage.Read more ›
1. It's almost impossible to see the settings on the switch on top of the lantern if it's dark outside.
2. It collapses a bit too easily. If you barely touch the top, then it collapses. Why no catch to hold it open?
3. It can be left on AND closed, which would drain the batteries (my wife did this to "turn it off").
I bought this lantern at the beginning of last summer for when I worked at Girl Scout camp as a counselor. I needed something bright so I could lead my kids up the mile long hill to the cabins at night.
This sure as heck is bright. BUT, the way the plastic is put together it creates a weird pattern. Also, it projects out so if you hold it low, you don't get any light infront of you - just at your feet. Ran into a lot of trees and bushes.
Although it is nice that it is collapsable, this function broke almost immeaditly. There was no hard use with it, either. It lived in the cabin storange area where it never got bumped or knocked over. It was used only after campfire, once a week, and the occasional night time breaks.
Once it began to collapse randomly, the plastic around the light broke. Then the batteries wouldn't stay in.
Honestly, if you want a good lantern get the old school propane or LED ones. This one just isn't worth the money.

An excellent lantern as far as being able to collapse it, the number of brightness settings, how bright it actually is. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mike
A nice lantern, which is easily stored or packed due to its size when compacted.Published 18 months ago by Missoula woodworker
Nice light, but it must be extended to work, and it doesn't stay extended all the time.Published 18 months ago by Aral Apul
A little suprised that Coleman would make this item so cheaply. It's got plastic parts that raise and lower the lantern part and broke before the lantern package was opened. Read morePublished on April 27, 2014 by Amazon Fan
It is perfect in every way. I like the fact that it collapses and makes it easier to carry. The high setting makes for a very bright light.Published on November 3, 2013 by D. Calendine
Better than burning candles and much safer. You can carry around room to room as well as turn on high and it gives ample lighting for reading. I bought ones for my family.Published on October 8, 2013 by Grandma
I don't know why I didn't buy this a long time ago. We live in an area where our power goes out a lot in the winter and this will be AWESOME. Read morePublished on August 2, 2013 by Koehler
If you hang it up it doesn't put much light downward and the switch is on top. It is bright and lasts forever on batteries. I also like that it collapses down. Read morePublished on July 5, 2013 by topher
