Make packing up your lantern as easy as possible with the Coleman QuickPack Deluxe Propane Lantern. The 2-mantle design of this lantern creates a steady, bright glow of up to 1000 lumens of light that reaches up to 22 meters away. 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 wide base provides stability when placed on a table, and the bail handle allows for easy hanging. No matter where you go, the PerfectFlow pressure control technology produces a steady fuel stream and consistent performance in all kinds of weather. When you're ready to head home, the QuickPack storage system helps get you on your way quickly, since the lantern base is also the bottom of your case. Just place the outer cover and you're all packed up until you're ready for your next bright adventure.

I’m a 71 year old camper who remembers fishing and camping with my father as about the only thing we had in common (that and the Cubs). He was a WWII vet who fought in the Pacific and I still use the Coleman lantern he had back in the early 50’s. Not out of sentiment, but because it still works like new. I use it for night fishing from my boat. After grad school and two years in the Army during Viet Nam, I started working for a company in Phoenix in 1971 . My boss was an avid camper and got me started back into it. His father happened to work in the Coleman factory in Wichita so he was well equipped. I didn’t even have a sleeping bag. I remember how proud he was of the equipment his father made. He always quipped, “He makes it so I can’t break it”. And it was true. You could torture a Coleman lantern or stove for years and it would still do the job. They were made for war.
Well, 50 years have sped by and as time passed I progressed from borrowing his stuff to buying my own. I went from pup tents to Sears Hillary canvas tents to high tech nylon tents as the years went by. I have 4 gas lanterns of varying vintage, catalytic heaters, several camp stoves, sleeping bags and a variety of other equipment all with the Coleman logo on them. I now camp from a 1997 Coleman Taos popup camper and have for the last 10 years. I just cleaned it up for the season and it still looks new. I have a small Coleman backpacking stove I keep in my boat for shore lunches which malfunctioned a couple of years ago and Coleman was right on it. They sent me a NEW stove to replace it. I guess what I’m trying to say is that Coleman, to me, was the model of the great American company. Great history, great products and great service.
Since all of my lanterns were gas and I had converted everything else in the Taos to propane I decided to go ahead and get a propane lantern. I always have plenty of propane bottles around for my barbeque grill, my stoves and my heater. The propane bottles are now easier to find than Coleman fuel and safer. It didn’t even occur to me to look for anything but a Coleman lantern. So, let my product review begin.
When the package arrived and I lifted the lantern out of the box the handle fell off. I’m old but I’m still quick and was able to catch the lantern before it hit the floor. I was just thankful that I wasn’t carrying it lighted on a dark night at a campsite. Two 10 cent lock washers could have prevented a potential serious burn. I suggest the first thing you do if you buy this is to get some kind of washer and lock the handles in place or bend them so they can’t come out. The second, and most glaring fault, is that the unit is mounted on a PLASTIC base. These lanterns get very hot and to attach them to plastic is just irresponsible. This base is also where the adjuster knob (also plastic) is located so when the plastic starts melting there is no way to turn it off. On my lantern, the knob was so loose and wobbly I got a screw driver to tighten it, but that’s just the way it is made. On all my old lanterns this base was metal and the knobs are rock solid.
Good luck trying to light the lantern. The hole where you put a match is barely large enough to insert a lighted match, and the clearance between the lighting hole and the plastic base is so small that it is impossible to get the match in the hole without burning the plastic base. Also, the lighting hole is so small that you can’t get a long BIC lighter through the hole. Prepare to buy a new lighter with a long narrow nose to go with your lantern. As I already mentioned, the adjusting knob is pure plastic junk. Be very careful when using it. It is difficult to tell when it is on or off. Other than that, the mantles, which were surprisingly included, are pretty much the same as always except they are attached with wire instead of string. At first glance this seems like a good idea. It makes it easier to get the mantles on. That’s probably why they did it so it would save them a few seconds at the factory when installing them. I assume that when you buy new mantles they will come with string to tie them on. My final observation on the lantern itself relates to the bottom of the unit where the propane bottle connects. If you keep a bottle connected at all times (not recommended for storage due to possibility of leaks) the should be no issues. Otherwise, the connection is completely exposed, including while in the storage case. This is an open invitation for bending or breaking the gas nozzle or clogging the pinhole where the propane enters. My first mission is to find a cap of some kind that will fit over and protect the nozzle. You might find a rubber or plastic cap that would fit or a propane fitting the same size as your bottle. I’m still working on that.
Now for the QuickPack carrying case. At first glance, it’s pretty cool – compact and protects the glass globe. The case is hinged and wraps around the unattached plastic stand which holds the propane bottle to which the lantern itself is screwed. The whole contraption is hard plastic. The kind that looks like it would shatter if you dropped it, especially in cold weather. It has two foam pads glued inside to cradle the globe. I expect these pads will fall off within a few years, but they were cheaper than molding the case to fit right. The biggest problem with the “protective” case is that it will not stay closed. It snaps together much like the battery compartment on a remote except it is too flimsy to stay in place. When it arrived, the case was held shut by a zip tie. Apparently, Coleman realizes the problem but now operates on the premise that “you break it you bought it”. Fortunately, there are two small holes where the zip tie held the case together that you can deploy an elegant solution to the problem by simply using a wire bread tie twisted to hold the case halves together. The cases on my old lanterns have latches that you can’t pry off with a crowbar. Finally, when the lantern is all wrapped up snug as a bug in the case, the lantern’s nozzle is still exposed and unprotected. The most expensive and carefully crafted component on the product is left wide open knowing it will be subjected to rain, wind, dirt, smoke, insects, spiders and children. I guess enough plastic to fill a 3 inch hole can really eat into profits. I’ll figure out something to fix it. After all, I am a camper.
Despite all the negatives, I don’t plan to return the lantern (unless it doesn’t work or it explodes in my face). I understand that in today’s world everything is throw away and this is no exception. Besides, at my age, how much longer does it need to last? I’m sure it will work fine for a family that goes camping once or twice a year, or someone who just wants to light up their patio for a party. But, if you are a serious hardcore camper, hunter or fisherman who uses their equipment hard, I would pass on this lantern. I would go to Craig’s List or a local pawn shop or garage sale to see if you can find a 20 year old lantern that was built for war. I have several, but I’m not selling mine.
By the way, I looked up Coleman on Wikipedia and it is now one of a bunch of companies owned by Newell Brands. On the outside of the lantern is printed, “Made In China for Coleman”. Apparently, there are no more factories in Wichita that make the product. Just marketers and pencil pushers to reap the profits from a brand name synonymous with quality while they squeeze every nickel they can out of their products. I’ll bet they even have a war chest to litigate or settle cases of customer injuries. Sorry Mr. Coleman, you started a great company.
I recently went on my first camping trip since then, and I knew that I wanted to have a Coleman propane lantern on hand. All the new LED lanterns are nice and good, but they don't take a beating or survive adverse weather like a metal Coleman propane lantern.
I was glad I had it on my trip. We didn't have any bad weather, but we did get a late start, and we needed good light to set up camp and cook dinner.
I put this lantern on a post connected to a 20lb propane cylinder, and it lit up the whole camp as bright as day, just like I remembered.
The protective case is plastic, but reasonable. The way the knob clicks instead of just slides is new compared to the old ones, but it's not a problem or anything.
The main problem with the lantern is the control knob. The bottom half(lower intensity) does not work. The light will go out below the halfway point and late at night 50% is a bit bright.
The carrying case is made of plastic but is rugged enough that I trust it to protect the lantern from most bumps.
The bail(handle) is an odd shape to allow it to lay on the outside of the case making the bail very non-ergonomic.
Will not work with the aftermarket spark igniter found on amazon.
