I must agree about the Coleman. Most of equiptment is theirs and I have
never had a problem. Alot of the atuff had been sitting in the attic for the
past 12 years until I recently started camping with my Webelos. Every thing
is still good and working. I was surprised to see the can of Stereno for my
backpack stoves were still good. Have you guys used the battery lantern
(area light) Coleman has? High, low and a night light. I like it, and I'm
not particulerly font of the mantles in gas lanterns. Our pack supply is
Gander Mountain Dome tents, I do not like them either. I will stick with my
old style pole and line tent. And of course it is Coleman. I guess it is
just the name I started with in my Girl Scout days. And like it is said, 'if
it's not broke don't fix it'.
