I don't think there is any other option for Coleman lanterns than the Coleman brand lantern mantle socks. Truth be told, these are flimsy old-school technology that has changed little in 100 years. These can be considered single-use for travelling campers because bumping or shaking the used mantle sock will cause it to break. YOU CAN EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR MANTLE SOCK BY SPRAYING IT WITH HAIR SPRAY AFTER USING THE MANLTLE AND BEFORE TRANSPORTING IT. So, keep your eyes open for bargains on these units. Today, they can range from $2.00 each to $0.50 each depending on who you buy from.
My husband loves Colman anything. These mantles are the right choice for him, except we have to drive 40 miles to a walmart.... Would be even better if we could get them @ walmart.com......
These have been around for a hundred years or so. They still work great. If you camp or spend a lot of time outdoors, you should definitely try these mantles and a Coleman gas lantern. Lots of light cheaply from a simple device.
these are very tough, and last
thorium mantles made by others burn brighter and cleaner while costing the same.
