This is my first Vapalux, or Bialadin for that matter. They are quite a rarity in South Africa, where Colemans and Tilleys are more common. I obtained the lantern without its burner and globe. Fortunately Andrew T could assist with a burner, and I ordered the globe from the UK. The fetlle was easy, and the lantern lights readily and burns very well. IMHO the Vapalux is extremely well engineered and manufactured. I owe it a proper clean and polish.
