1. Coleman has helped in many ways.

    From the camp stove was given 35 years ago from my grand father that still works today and bring now my son and daughter meal relief. The light that still is kicking for 30 years with countless wicks replaced but still works the best. Yes I have added a cool new LED one recently as it just easier. The 8 person coleman tent we have for 7 years now that we purchased when my son was just 3 months old and daughter 18 months. Has been used and fixed a few times but still provides so much family time and love for the outdoors. The coleman sleeping bags keep us warm inside. Coleman is the outdoor company that has provided this 42 year old so much and allows me to share the outdoors in comfort with my family.
