HaHa. Coleman stuff is the best, well, really, the old stuff. Coleman stoves especially, but the lanterns are fun too. You can pay $300 for a Partner Steel stove, that runs on propane, or $20 for Coleman stoves that run on gasoline(and burns hotter), that you likely have in abundance anyway. Your call.Since I am not going to go out and spend 70 bucks on a titanium coffee mug, lets here about everyone's coleman addiction. I have a crap load of stoves, accessories, bbqs etc from coleman. Even tried to get a coleman pop up trailer but could not find one in Newfoundland. Fire away everyone...
While it isn't a huge deal, Snow Peak lost me at the $20 titanium chop sticks. Good stuff no doubt, but really? My local Asian market sells the great plastic ones for $10 for 10 sets, all different colors.
It's funny that Coleman did, in the context of the time, in the 1960's, the same thing Snow Peak is doing now. What's old is new again!
With regards to the addiction, I have maybe 30 stoves, and 20 lanterns, small beans for many, but still super cool. The lanterns have unfortunately been usurped for camp lighting by LED's, but the stoves are still better in many ways than any alternative.
