Brunton Liberty Mantleless Canister Fuel Lantern SPOTLITE REVIEW
Hallelujah! No fragile mantles! Good fuel efficiency and bright output make this a tempting gadget for winter camping.
By Will Rietveld
Got excess gas? I mean that box full of partial fuel canisters from your lightweight canister stove. This might be a way to finish them off on family camping trips. Brunton has introduced what they claim is the world’s first mantleless camping lantern. It features a platinum element and is claimed to be windproof and hassle free—no mantles or matches needed or glass globe to break. It comes with standard piezo ignition, so lighting is a push of a button. It has two reflectors to direct light to where you need it.
