Director of WILD-1 manager direct! "How to choose a lantern" that even beginners can understand


If you are enjoying a variety of outdoor, you will want to have a set of your own tools. It is hard to examine a lot, such as "tent" to "shruff" and "tarp" to "lantern". . .

So, how do you actually choose it! What? For those in need, I also introduced Mr. Morita, manager of WILD - 1 Odaiba Dex Tokyo Beach store, how to choose various outdoor goods and recommended items again!


This time, as a WILD-1 collaboration project, you will be taught "How to choose a lantern", which is also understood by beginners.

It is a pretty modest supporting role, but as much as a tent or tarp Required What is a lantern. Without a lantern, I can not see anything in a fun camp. If there is no barbecue, it will feel like a black pot.

So first of all, I asked about the types of lanterns and their characteristics.

"Lanterns are roughly divided into two:" fueled lanterns "that use gas and gasoline, etc. and" battery-operated lanterns. "Fueled lanterns are strong lights and are the best for campsite main lights, but for handling Care must be taken, and battery-powered lanterns are weak but safe because they do not use fire. "

Because that means less I tried to summarize the advantages and disadvantages.

◆ Fuel type lantern
The light is strong
× Care must be taken in handling
(Danger to small children because they are burning, and there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in a tent, etc.)
× Need to learn how to use "Mantle"
※ The mantle is what you need when firing a lantern, like a filament in a light bulb.
◆ Battery-operated lantern (LED lantern)
Safe because it does not use fuel
× The light is weak

Well, so which one is better then? It seems that it is necessary to keep separate for tableware, tent, etc. because each role is different. Then how many do you need to buy for the first time ,,,?

"The ideal is three. Instead of a streetlight, one fuel formula, one tabletop LED or small fuel formula on the table, and one battery formula for the inside of the tent, three ideal is ideal. I think that two is enough, but it seems that many people want one more when actually used. "

Certainly, when going to camp BBQ There are many occasions such as drinking parties under the tarp, so it may be quite convenient if there are three tables together. However, when I have a small child, I am anxious about the fuel type. .

"There is a product that is safe and bright for those who have resistance to using gas and gasoline by all means."

Coleman (Coleman)
"Millennia LED Campsite Lantern"

It does not convey so much in the picture, but, it is awesome brightness! The light is reflected by the mirror, is not it? If it is this, it may be a change in fuel formula certainly.

Also introduced such products.

Coleman (Coleman)
"CPX 6 triago LED lantern"

Since the light portion of this LED lantern is removable, when you go to the toilet etc you do not need a flashlight and it is very convenient.

By the way, there are such things everywhere in the store of WILD - 1.


There is an explanation about the part which is concerned about the tool entitled "basic knowledge of WILD-1 staff's answering camping tool selection". There were also a lot of contents that I thought was quite good, and I thought that these fine attentions are happy ~.

Also, the story goes back, when I see various lantern corners, I also found a kerosene lantern!
There are various kinds of fuel formula as well.


It looks like a luxurious appearance and it feels cool.
It just feels like a professional, but how about the kerosene formula for beginners?


"This is also fuel type, so it is quite bright. However, kerosene is difficult to vaporize, so it takes a lot of time at the time of ignition, so it is difficult to handle and not recommended for beginners."

It is wise that novices leave their hands.
Just try using it in various ways, and if you get used to it, such a process may become fun.

When I was going to move to the next corner, there were various types, and when I turned my eyes to the side shelf, I found a fashionable lantern! What is this? !

Coleman (Coleman)
"Lumiere lantern"

In fact, it seems that when it lights up, it will have a flame that shakes like a candle. What a fashionable thing. .

"Lumiere lanterns are fashionable, but this part of the gas can seems to be detracting from the sense of fashion. So there is a cover on the market as well."


Oh, it is good. The casual stylish feeling will increase at once. I realized that the lantern products have evolved day by day.

So this time for the first time to buy lanterns, Mr. Morita introduced various ways of choosing and how to choose. Next time will introduce the recommended way to buy barbecue stove and cooler box etc for the first time!
