The MicronLantern is a compact, lightweight and durable lantern that provides light and warmth when you need small dimensions, low weight and durability. It's available in two versions: with a stainless steel mesh or in frosted glass. The stainless mesh is more durable, of course, whereas the glass version provides a more powerful light. Brightness is infinitely adjustable, up to 235 lumens on the steel mesh version and 360 lumens on the glass version. The EasyTrigger ignition system allows for quick and easy lighting. The patented burner ensures that the lantern is virtually silent and uses little gas. The steel mesh lantern is supplied with a nylon stuff sack, and the glass version comes in a sturdy plastic case.

I go camping whenever possible so me and my wife decided one day to upgrade to backpacking / Motorcycle camping. We also traded in the large bulky Coleman lanterns and stoves for something a bit smaller. I did a lot of research and I landed here.
In most cases I would use LED flashlights and lanterns "AA and AAA batteries are a lot lighter than cans of butane fuel" but for good wide area light and heat this micro lantern can’t be beat. I normally bring this lantern on cold weather trips. me and the wife can stop drink some water rest for a few minutes and warm up with the lantern.
Also works great in the dear blind set it on low and it will burn warm for hours. I let it run on high for up to 4-1/2 hours and at its lowest in excess of 7 hours. It burns just as bright if not brighter than a traditional Coleman lantern the wire mesh protects the element and won’t break like most traditional lanterns. it has about 2 or so foot of cable allowing it to be hung from low hanging branches.
Do keep in mind it is still has a mantle which is very fragile. the lantern can be safely shoved in a pack and I’ve had no issues with it on long trips but keep spare mantles in your pack and don't drop it or toss your pack down as you could damage the white mantle.
