Summary: I bought one of these for my father-in-law (What else do you get him?) and decided to buy one for myself. It's a good size and seems to work extremely well. I've read some of the horror stories on here about dropping the flashlight three feet and breaking it. I doubt this is a real concern. Reviews like this are probably just a competitor sabotaging this company with bad reviews.
Summary: I wanted a flashlight-lantern combination for power outages and camping. I found only two models of this type in my area and went with the Coleman. I've used it three times and on the last time in my time of need: (Hurricane Ike and the ensuing power failure), this thing failed me. Thought it was the battery but it was not. It is the switch. The switch won't activate the light.
Summary: We have a dual action Coleman flashlight that is over 10 years old and is still going great. A few plastic pieces are missing, so we decided to get a newer version. We ordered this item. It's very attractive. But when we loaded it up with batteries, only the lantern was working, so we thought that the bulb for the flashlight was bad. No problem we can change that.
Summary: I just bought this product to replace the previous one and also added the Coleman Personal Size Lantern to my order. Here's my review of the lantern which recommends the Coleman Widebeam flashlight.
I purchased the "Coleman 4D Dual Action Widebeam Flashlight" for $20 at Amazon to replace the same product which stopped working. While I was at it I bought one of these lanterns.
