    Hi I picked up one of these rather large Coleman lamps today...

    It looks like it has never been lit and still has gas in it. It uses a refillable tank and the whole thing is quite imposing and it has to be said quite heavy.

    The manual has a 2003 copyright on it but that is the only date I can find. Are these still made? If not when were they made?

    I'm not sure how much help they will be but here is the beast....

    It's not exactly the sort of thing you would slip into your backpack before going off on a hike! In fact I'm not sure what market it was aimed at. Sure weight isn't always an issue when camping but space almost always is and far more compact options have been available for years.

    Here it is lit. It may not look like it in the picture but this thing is blindingly bright even in the daylight.

    I'm wondering why this is in the Open Forum - it's a lamp and the fuel moves under pressure. Classic can be debated; but then I defy anyone to come up with a definition of 'classic' that's acceptable to all.

    Surely it should be in the LRG under Coleman - in the 'Outdoor' section if you ask me...

    Well most lamps use pressure in some way.
    Do you mean that I can start to post all my carbide lamps in the reference section now. :lol:

    They are much more pressurelamps than gas-lights Christer.

    Of course not. :roll: ](*,)

    But we do need to be consistent - either this needs to go in the LRG or the Coleman gassie stuff in the LRG needs to come here...

    I Agree.
    It's important to keep it consistent.
    But I doubted a bit before moving it to the reference gallery since the post rather was a general question about help/info.

    Would you like another Coleman gassie to go with that one? I got one that takes the smaller camping gaz cartridges, but I don't use it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thanks Mathew but it's not the start of a gas collection.... ;)

    It caught my eye because I couldn't really miss it seeing as it's so big! I ignored it at first then went back two hours later and it was still there, I can't imagine why :-#

    Your local garbage collection service will take it. They do provide this vital service to help rid the world of these devices of the devil. ::Neil::

    Yes, but I thought the pictures were good. It could have also gone in the Lamp Forum, I suppose... :)

    Matthew, I'm not averse to a Coleman gassie although I probably already have the one you're trying to get rid of - and I'm supposed to be down-sizing, anyway... :doh:
