So Simple And Bright!
Dec 4, 2018
I was always a short globe person. The globes are more rugged and easier to clean. The Junior has a puny fount and a tall globe, and could never compare to my old Embury Little Supremes and Little Air Pilots. I was wrong. I am at 6,800 feet elevation. Tall globe lanterns are brighter. Juniors have convenient rising cones, now. 5/8 wicks make a broad flame, and are not as persnickety as 7/8 wicks. The little Feuerhands and Dietz 76s are cute, but this Junior may be the optimum for compact size/maximum light considerations. Only my MEVA compares, and it happens to be a Dietz Junior copy! For everyday practicality, and the ease of getting a perfect broad flame, I don't think you could make a better choice, especially if you are in high country. As always, Lehman's got it to me quickly, and in show room condition.
Great lantern, great value

This is a great little Lantern. It works as well as I expected it would being a Dietz design. It has a very nicely shaped Flame allowing me to turn the wick up quite High with no soot. The fount is really too small but I knew that before purchasing it so I was not surprised but it could really use a larger Fount but that is the only negative I can see about this Lantern. It arrived without a scratch or damage to any part of the lantern, it was very securely packaged and protected from damage during shipment.

There is a reason these have been continuously produced for over 100 years and are the most copies lantern design in the world. They are the perfect balance of size, lightweight and candlepower output. This one is rapidly becoming one of my favorite lanterns! Layman's perfectly packaged the item. Quick shipment.

This Lantern does everything I expected and does it well. It is easy to use and has a nice soothing light. It's simple yet solid. I would definitely purchase again. Avoid the inexpensive lanterns from places like the dollar store. I have one that I paid two dollars for. It leaks lamp oil and the very flimsy.

I use my Dietz Juniors for night-time walks and for taking out the garbage. (400ft driveway.) If I could have only one Dietz, I'd choose the Junior. Lehman's has the best price around.

Works as designed. Filling these can be tricky as it advises not filling above 85% full but this is more a user issue. It arrived very well packed and seems to work just fine, these were bought intended for emergency issues and should last for years.

For many years I took my Dietz jr. on canoe trips with my son.It was small enough to pack in a tight place, and held enough fuel to burn all night. It was a comfort crawling out of the tent and being able to see the ground around you so you could check for snakes. Still have it around for emergency's. It put out pleanty of light.
