I dont know of any light that wont attract bugs gas lights ar even worse at attracting em due to the co2 put out attracts mosquitos even more, if youve got an inverter you could try these.I prefer the simplicity of the LED lights in not needing to worry about fuel and glass. However are there there any good LEDs out that don't attract the bugs? or even any that use a more yellow led like the Milwakee led flashlights I use at work?
Chadlyb sums it up for me too... I love the sound and the light from an old gas lantern... But I have gotten tired of replacing mantels every time I use them, carrying extra fuel that is only used in the lantern being careful not to break the glass globe and rebuilding the pump or cleaning jets...I have both for just that reason. I have fond memories of the hiss of the Coleman gas lantern from my childhood that I never want to let go of. And the memory of my father.
please expand on the replacement "screen". thanks, RonI'm 100% in on propane. I have an old simple 2 mantle Coleman, maybe 20 years old, and I replaced the glass with a screen. It's indestructible now.
I have often forgotten batteries, or they've come up dead, but I've never been without propane.
I also bought a " propane tree" that I mount to the propane tank, and I put the lantern on top.
Last point, when it's time to hit the hammock, I shut off the tank and let the lantern burn off everything left in the tree. It's incredible how little propane it uses, and how long it takes to burn off that small amount.
