    I tried to compare the new mantles from Coleman to some older mantles but these new Coleman mantles wouldn't cooperate !

    There could be some bad batches. Are those new style packaging?
    Unfortunately, the old Silk Lites are no longer made.

    I have, on the generic Chinese pink top mantles! They rip as they're being burnt in, exactly the same as these new Coleman mantles. Hmmmm I wonder where they are made? :-k

    very disappointing.
    all Coleman products I use are excellent quality, that's why I keep going back to them for my camping gear. so far I have 2 Coleman pressure stoves, one of which I just purchased a few weeks back, 2 small tents, a sleeping bag an some other odds and ends. but yet to procure one of their pressure lamps, which I intend to soon. those mantles are letting their reputation down.

    love that red Coleman lamp BTW
