Overview Of Coleman

Coleman Review

Coleman was founded in 1900 by William Coffin Coleman. His first ever product was a gas-powered lantern, which just five short years later was used for the first time in history to light up a nighttime football game. 

In 1942, Coleman created another life-changing product. This time, it was portable camping stoves for WWII soldiers which allowed them to have a hot meal. Revolutionary stuff. And in the 1950s, the company started making the iconic Coleman cooler. Since then its added other outdoor essentials to its collection over time. 

No matter where your day takes you outdoors, this brand is on a mission to give you everything you need to make it there and enjoy your stay. What’s next for this Coleman review? We’ll breeze through the highlights first, then journey through a selection of the brand’s bestselling supplies.

If the outdoors are where you’re headed, Coleman has a great selection of essentials and supplies to make your trip an enjoyable one. From coolers and tents to sleeping bags and grills, it even sells innovative camp furniture (I’m looking at you, heated chair) for a comfortable, safe, and well-fed journey. 

In the next section of this Coleman review, I’ll walk you through a range of the brand’s must-have camping supplies. Let’s start with its most iconic one, the cooler.

Coleman Cooler Review

With a fantastic selection of coolers in its inventory, finding one that meets your needs is quite simple. In the brand’s catalog, you’ll see both soft and hard options, along with lunchboxes, backpacks, and drink coolers from 13oz to 100qt. Let’s check out its bestseller.

Coleman 13oz. Sundowner Stainless Steel Insulated Rocks Glass Review 

The sunset, you, and your go-to drink. The 13oz Sundowner Stainless Steel Insulated Rocks Glass fits your whiskey and coke for a great wind down after a busy day. Whether you’re returning to camp or sitting on your patio, this insulated 18/8 stainless steel glass will keep your drink cold for up to nine hours. 

It features a soft pad on the bottom to prevent spills and also cuts down the clanking noise that steel usually makes on hard surfaces. Need spill protection? Pop on the clear plastic lid and use the slidable spout cover. Free from BPA, this compact Coleman cooler rings in at $22.

Coleman Grill Review

What’s one of the best things about camping? Grilling. Coleman makes all kinds of grills for outdoor cookouts. Some have legs and wheels while others have handles, but all are portable and ready for action. You’ll meet the bestselling Coleman grill below.

Coleman RoadTrip X-Cursion 2 Burner Propane Gas Portable Grill Review 

The RoadTrip X-Cursion 2-Burner Propane Gas Portable Grill is the perfect compact grill for all of your adventures. With collapsible legs, it’s easy to pack in the trunk of your car but allows you to take it out for tailgating or to transport it to a campsite. 

And if you do find yourself transporting it, its off-road wheels make rolling it across bumpy terrain something you can actually do. 

Enjoy 285 square inches of grill space, porcelain-coated cast iron grills, and 20,000 BTUs of power. Since it’s equipped with Even-Temp, your meat will cook evenly, and if you prefer to make pancakes, pop the grill out and put in a griddle (sold separately) instead. 

Need to pack up in a hurry? The grease pan is removable for easy cleaning. Add it to your cart for $220.

Coleman Tents Review

The collection of Coleman tents includes 78 different models. They range in size from single to 12 person, and include pop-up, dome, lighted, and dark-room designs. Keep reading for the scoop on the brand’s bestseller.

Coleman 4-Person Pop-Up Tent with Dark Room Technology Review 

Some mornings are meant for watching the sunrise, others are for sleeping in. If you need a few extra hours of zzzs, the 4-Person Pop-Up Tent with Dark Room Technology can help. That’s not the only reason to choose it though, this thing literally pops up, becoming a 4-person tent in 10 seconds. 

Blocking 90% of sunlight, you can sit in your tent in the daytime and enjoy cooler temperatures or take an afternoon nap. It’s equipped with a rainfly and taped floor seams as well, so you can feel the breeze and stay dry even when it’s pouring rain outside. Pick one up for $150 along with a one-year warranty.

Coleman Camp Stove Review

For longer treks, you’ll need a way to cook food that you can pack. That’s where camp stoves come in. Coleman has 25 different options with single, double, and triple burners, along with handy fold-and-go models. I’ll go over its bestseller next. 

Coleman Cascade Classic Camping Stove Review

Sometimes, you just want a hot-cooked meal—especially after you’ve hiked a soggy eight miles in the rain. The Cascade Classic Camping Stove is compact and light enough to carry from the car to your campsite. Plus, it has a chrome-plated grate and an aluminized steel cooktop which makes for quick heating and easy cleaning.

I should note that this one isn’t exactly packable—it’s more for campouts and warm meals after daytime hikes. Its standout features include improved knob rotation for more precise cooking, as well as a simmer control for two of the burners. Rice and beans, anyone? 

Igniting quickly, the Coleman camp stove doesn’t require matches, but you’ll need to buy a separate propane tank. Enjoy 20,000 BTUs of cooking, wind guards, and one hour of cooking on high. Get yours for $100

Coleman Air Mattress Review

Sleeping on the rock-hard ground usually means getting no sleep at all. If you’re camping, you’ll probably want to bring along an air mattress. And Coleman has some seriously plush options—including pillow tops, double highs, and simple, single styles. So you can sleep like royalty under the stars. Meet the brand’s bestseller below.

Coleman QuickBed Elite Extra High Airbed Twin Review

Depending on where you’re camping, you may literally be sleeping on a rock. That’s why carrying an air mattress with you is always a good idea. The QuickBed Elite Extra High Airbed Twin has a built-in 4D pump which saves you time and energy. 

Inflate it to the firmness you like, and the AirTight® system will ensure it stays that way throughout the night. I’ve slept on my fair share of roots because of leaky air mattresses, so features like this mean a lot. 

Designed with ComfortStrong™ coils, it’s made for support while its extra-high height and soft top mean you’ll feel more comfortable. Since it’s a twin bed, it can hold up to 300lbs. Purchase this Coleman air mattress on sale for $40 (normally $90) along with a carrying bag and one-year warranty. 

Coleman Lantern Review

A type of product that’s equally as iconic for Coleman as the cooler, the brand’s selection of lanterns lights the way on dark nights. There are a total of 16 options available. Some are fueled by propane, and others have dual fuel capability. Below, you’ll read all about its bestseller.

Coleman Powerhouse Dual Fuel™ Lantern Review

Stumbling around in the dark can be dangerous, and if you ask me, there’s nothing quite like the soft glow of a lantern. If you’re looking for a long-lasting lantern you can trust, go for the Powerhouse Dual Fuel Lantern

Use either unleaded gasoline or Coleman Liquid Fuel to power it up. But just so you know, the Liquid Fuel lasts as long as 4.5 cylinders of propane, so you’ll actually take less with you. And on long treks, the lighter your pack, the better. 

As for the design of the light, its two mantles create 800 lumens of light that can be seen 22 meters away. When not in use, it has a handle so it can hang. 

Strike a match, light your lantern, then control it with the knob. While you’re dealing with real fire here, its durable construction ensures it lasts in all weather conditions and is guaranteed not to crack from the heat. Get up to five hours on high or 20 on low. Purchase the Coleman lantern for $115 along with a five-year warranty.

Who Is Coleman For? 

Coleman Review

Coleman makes essentials for camping and the great outdoors. But the brand doesn’t discriminate between folks who want to camp out in their backyard versus on the Appalachian Trail. If the outdoors is where you’re headed, and you want the right supplies, this brand is for you.

Coleman Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Coleman Review

Outdoor gear is rigorously critiqued. After all, if your stove dies on you, you’re going to be left hungry—or eating cold mush. That’s why customer feedback is essential in this Coleman review. Especially because we know that quality matters. 

The first place we’ll consult for feedback is Coleman.com. I’ve compiled a short list of ratings for some of the brand’s bestsellers below:

  • Powerhouse® Dual Fuel™ Lantern: 4.5/5 stars from 44 reviews
  • QuickBed® Elite Extra High Airbed: Twin: 4.7/5 stars from 24 reviews
  • Cascade™ Classic Camping Stove: 4.9/5 stars from 24 reviews
  • 4-Person Pop-Up Tent with Dark Room™ Technology: 4.9/5 stars from 27 reviews

Judging from the comments section for the 4-Person Pop-Up Tent with Dark Room™ Technology, people love this tent. Here’s one Coleman review that explains why:

When they say it takes 10 seconds to put up they absolutely mean it! This thing was the easiest tent we have ever put up in our lives. You can literally throw it open. The dark room feature is really cool and works amazingly well at blocking out the light and heat.

Others verify that it does indeed sleep four people. Personally, I like that it does a good job of blocking out light and heat because nothing is worse than waking up sweaty. The dark feature also means you can take a nap in the daytime. 

Is the same kind of feedback found elsewhere around the web? Let’s find out. The next source we’ll check out is Consumer Affairs. There, the brand was awarded 4/5 stars by 146 shoppers. On the Consumer Affairs website, the feedback is a mix of comments about specific products and the company in general. 

The following Coleman review is about one of the brand’s generators, though the customer doesn’t specify which one.

I bought this generator to use when we lost power. I had a pole barn built and It doesn’t have power so I use it quite often. This generator is about 10 years old. A great product. Starts on the first. Couldn’t ask for more.”

This is the kind of quality people trust Coleman for and why the brand has been around for over 120 years. Other comments on Consumer Affairs mention trustworthy products as well. 

So far, I feel like we have a pretty good depiction of what the brand’s products are like, but for good measure, let’s check out one final Coleman review on Amazon. This one is for the Roadtrip LXE Portable Gas Grill, for which 6,039 shoppers gave 4.5/5 stars. I’ll give you a peek at the snapshot first then dive into the comments.

  • 5 stars: 73%
  • 4 stars: 13%
  • 3 stars: 7%
  • 2 stars: 3%
  • 1 star: 4%

It seems common for Amazon customers to write lengthy reviews, so I scanned through a few and the feedback for the grill is similar in each one. Here’s what a reviewer had to say about the design:

The grill grates are awesome and have a solid area in the center which is great for things you are worried might fall underneath. The heat is definitely stronger in the center by the flames…It also is nice for grilled veggies that won’t get lost. I also love that the grill has a lip around the edge, to prevent hotdogs from rolling off the grill if you are not exactly level.

I know that review was a bit long, but it demonstrates the difference that buying a Coleman makes. Ever had a camp floor hot dog? I have, so I appreciate the details here because, out in the wild, surfaces frequently aren’t completely flat.

No matter where I looked for feedback about this brand, it was consistently positive. Basically, Coleman appears to have a great reputation with campers and outdoorsy folks. 

Is Coleman Legit?

Coleman Review

There are about 20 different companies with a similar name, so it took me a while to locate this brand’s profile on the Better Business Bureau. That may be why it hasn’t been rated yet and doesn’t have a single complaint or comment. 

Whatever the reason, sometimes no news is good news, but I made sure to read through negative comments on Amazon and Consumer Affairs to be sure. 

The most common complaint was about faulty or damaged items, but other than that, most people said they’ve used Coleman products for years and choose them for their quality. So, Coleman is definitely a legit brand, and if you do experience a faulty item, it may be covered by its limited warranty. 

Is Coleman Worth It?

Coleman Review

Coleman is one of those brands that’s easy to buy from. Its products are durable, well designed, and affordable. Plus, it has great variety of items in each category. Camping and spending time outdoors requires having the right gear for you, so I appreciate the number of products this brand carries.

In addition, its customer feedback is consistently high, and I haven’t found a single reason not to buy its products. All things in this Coleman review considered, it’s definitely a brand worth checking out.
