Just an fyi - I don't own one myself, but a friend has one, and he fired it up during a recent camping trip. The size of the the flame, (and light output) is roughly the same as a lighter. It's not a real usable lantern, and is a gear junkie "toy" for lack of a better term. It's pretty much just to use the last little bit of fuel in a canister, that would otherwise be wasted. It's not a substitute for an actual light or headlamp, and provides ambient soft glow light only. You couldn't read a map with it. I suppose you could use it as a nightlight, but it's not much more than a toy.
Thank you VERY much for posting your friend's experience with this product- I was under the misguided assumption that this was brighter. Back onto my small lantern hunt....
Sorry for the late reply - I was out of the country. It is my pleasure. I'm a gear junkie by nature, but I passed on this one too.
I just got back from Ireland myself- DEFINITELY a much different place in December, as opposed to April. ABSOLUTELY loved the West Coast over Dublin and the larger cities on the East Coast. I also learned exactly what to bring, clothing and gear wise, for my next trip. (Thinking about a Wales/Ireland trip) The ONE thing I hated? The amount of time spent checking in at Dublin Airport- I almost didn't make my return flight.... Nonsense.
Out of curiosity, have you managed to find a lantern that's a similar size to this product that actually IS bright?
Thank you again for your response! :-)
