I purchased my Champion Lantern before I knew of Lehmans store. This Lantern puts out a large amount of light and is ruggedly built. Trimming the wick for this Lantern is very easy which I cannot say for every Lantern. The fount is large enough to hold enough fuel to burn for many nights even with a somewhat large flame before needing to add more fuel.
Simply the best 7/8

This is as it once was for all tubular lanterns! I'm a world of cutting costs by businesses interested in the bottom line. WT Kirkman has retro engineered a product that outperforms any currently produced cold blast lantern. It is whiter and brighter than any other Dietz cold blast lantern! It is a heavier guage steel, an improved burner, and full weight pressed glass globe. It truly delivers the 12 to 18 co rating max. 20 cp. Ok, maybe not the Feuerhand, but the only currently produced lantern is a 1/2" wick at 8 cp. One of the lanterns I received was damaged but was quickly replaced by Lehman's. It was probably damaged before Layman's received my box was unmolested . If you are considering this product, just do yourself a favor and buy it!
Works well with electric kit for Dietz

Thought these would work better for outdoor electrification. Found the kit sold by Lehman's for a Dietz lantern fits perfect in this one also. Time will tell if they last longer than Dietz outdoor, I get about 7 years out of a Dietz before the bottom rusts out and it starts showing more than rust age.
Nice bit lantern but......

I ordered this lantern a long time ago but never opened to use until a few months back. When removing the bubble wrap I noticed that it did not contain a cap for the oil. Tried ordering from website but they did not fit, called Lehman's and asked. The woman I spoke with said she would have to have someone research and get back to me, never heard back from anyone. Unfortunately, without the cap it is useless. Check your purchases when received, not when ready to use.
Lehman's says: Thanks for letting us know.
Don't believe it they do rust

The whole bottom rusted out of a large champion I bought. Buy a led lantern. No fire hazard
Champion galvanized lantern

This seems to be a good quality lantern. It is slightly less heavy than I expected, but doesn't affect its quality. I have filled it, ready for when the power goes out, but have not lit it. The wick functions properly with no sticking, and moves easily. I would recommend this lantern.
