I’m digging how Coleman’s industrial design team creates new products that pay homage to old form factors. Last year we looked at their 4-in-1 LED Lantern, and this year their 360° Sound and Light Lantern has caught our eye, again for copping the form of an old gas lantern but adding modern-day functionality.
The water-resistant 360 provides wraparound light, as the name suggests. The rechargeable battery is good for seven hours at maximum brightness (400 lumens), 16 hours on medium and a whopping 40 hours on low. The max brightness duration gets cut down to five hours if use the lantern’s other feature simultaneously: See that grill down on the bottom? Yep, it’s also a Bluetooth speaker.
