At Coleman®, we believe that time spent outside reconnects people with each other and the planet, creating a path to a better tomorrow.
It all started with W.C. Coleman inventing the first portable, gas-powered lantern over 120 years ago. Those lanterns illuminated the first evening football game west of the Mississippi. And in WWII, soldiers parachuted into Europe with our camping stoves in their backpacks. We continued to revolutionize the outdoors with our cooler manufacturing in the 1950s, and in the decades that followed we added tents, sleeping bags, lighting, and more.
After 120 years, Coleman gear is everywhere you are: on the trail, by the lake, at a tailgate, or in the middle of a music festival. We're always around a place where there are friends, coolers, and campfires. So, grab a tent, fire up a grill, and pull up a chair. The outside is calling. Answer it.
