yes, it's plastic and yes, it's heavy. who cares? when you're car camping, weight isn't an issue. it's very bright and also adjustable if you want lower light to just find your way back to your tent. definitely made the cooking area bright enough. would recommend for anyone car camping who is tired of wrecking mantles in the propane lantern.

After being with out power for six days because of super storm Sandy. I wanted a lantern that could set on a table, counter, etc. This light filled the bill. It is bright enough to light the whole kitchen area or living room. I also like the fact that you can adjust the brightness.

It is a pretty good and bright lantern with genuine parts like the Cree LEDs. It looks shiny and impressive. It has the classic lantern design while reminding you of something high-tech as felt out of the box. It is large and imposing and at night, it shines brightly at its peak power. It had one of the highest 'lumen' ratings on the market during my search and hence its ultimate purchase occured. The lantern is almost entirely made of plastic, to my surprise, and to that effect an Excellent rating evaded it. Before ordering it I presumed that what looks aluminum in the picture, is aluminum, but only the slim 'neck' part where the brightness dial sits, is actually aluminum. Now the part that I really wish was made of metal, the bottom black ring which is also what comes off to input D batteries, is not, it's brittle-feeling plastic. With batteries, the lantern is heavy and one will have to be careful when placing it onto hard surfacing, not to mention dropping it. It does not even include 'feet' which I gladly installed myself. The carrying handle is metal. The dial works oddly when adjusting brightness, perhaps due to the use of LEDs, and the light output isn't smooth; I didn't mind too much, just unexpected. Overall good lantern w/genuine parts as expected from Coleman, but also as expected from this group, illogical use of materials and/or lack of good materials in important places. If you want this to last a lifetime, you will have to be very careful w/it during use. For the money a more rugged one can be found, however this one is good enough to be recommended.
Super bright, light weight camping lantern. Love the classic style and the low energy cost! Can't wait to use this on my next camping trip, or when the lighs go out. Powerful enough to light up a whole room at maximun brightness, yet can also be a great nightlight since it dims so well.

I have always had a good experience with Coleman products. This one is no exception. I had a smaller Coleman LED lantern which my wife gave away after Hurricane Irene. As I needed to replace it, I checked on Coleman's site for a slightly brighter one. This one came with pretty good reviews and the high lumen output sold me. As I was looking for the best price and cheapest shipping, I found that Overstock fit the bill. This arrived quickly with no issues. I loaded the (8) D batteries into it and found it to be just as described. It is a great lantern, ( obviously a little heavy considering it uses (8) D cells ). If you need it for stationary use or emergency use, I would highly recomend it. It is a bit heavy to be walking around with.

This is a great bright light for use during power outages, splunkering, finding objects in the shed out back, and looks great on the dresser just waiting for such an event. I held one star due to the company name on the side of the lantern. It belongs on the bottpm someplace. I bought the light, not the company. But for a great value, it'll be hard to beat this product.
