    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

    Used this product at 3 day wintercamp. Worked great. Good light. Long lasting. It does "telescope" to protect glass/make more compact but glass is glass... You can lug heavy batteries and have them fade out not knowing when they will die OR light this candle and know exactly how much you have left, have a protected source of fire and get some heat too! Gets lighter as you use it!

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

      I have 3 of these candles that I use to hang outside when I am cooking on the grill. I also use them when I am out on the boat at night having a few drinks. Friends LOVE them. However, two of the ones that I have are blue powder coated with a brass EMS plate on them and they clean very easy. The third one that I have is like the one pictured and is not so nice looking and is very hard to clean. If you can find the older ones you will be that much for the better in the style and functionality of the product. I would really like to by more of the blue ones.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

        Love camping but hate being cold? This candle lantern seriously heats up your tent. Hang it from the top (not too close to melt the tent though!) and let it dry out and heat up your tent for a little while before you go to sleep (maybe 15 minutes?) and viola! Seriously, we pass this around from tent to tent as everyone goes to bed. It's awesome.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

        I really like this product. It small and light, so i take it "just in case" for day trips. And use it when camping. It does put out some heat, and burned my finger last summer while camping. puts out a good amount of light for a small candle, and lasts a long time.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

          This lamp has sweet price for the design and use factor. Not to mention, I lit this little guy at 8:30pm and it was still burning when I blew it out at 5:00am the next day. No joke. I was very impressed with burn length and it is easy to find replaceable candles to swap out. If you are looking for a money saver, something that you can beat up pretty good, and never have to worry about finding parts for... look no further. Solid choice.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Aluminum Candle Lantern:

          I bought this item from EMS years and years ago. I think I used it on a picnic date with my wife 16 or 17 years ago.

          As a rule, I didn't take it camping -- extra weight, open flame, whatever. It was more a picnic kind of thing.

          However, the past couple of years, I have been camping with my young son in a lean-to, and this item is perfect. Puts out a surprising amount of warm, cheery light, and each candle lasts for 9 or 10 hours (we used it as a "night-light" this last time).

          Well worth purchasing. Highly recommended (unless you are inside a tent -- I don't like the combo of open flames/heat and synthetic fabric). The company that makes it also makes an accessory that puts an LED light in the base -- worth tracking down, buying, and installing (very simple installation), since the lantern then gives you 2 light sources (the light from the flame, plus the light that beams straight down from the bottom, which is not hot (ie, I would use it in my tent))).

              I have had one of these for almost 20 years and got a second just in case and to carry in the truck. This has aways worked and provided great light when needed. An extremely long burn time helps as well.
