William Coffin Coleman came into business selling lanterns. During WWII, the inventor submitted a proposal for a soldier's stove that would hold up through extreme outdoor conditions. His concept became the GI stove, and the U.S. became Coleman's largest buyer.
Styles of Camp Stoves
You can match your needs to the right style of Coleman stove. Coleman makes several types of camp stoves. These include propane stoves, liquid fuel stoves, backpacking stoves and portable grills.
Pick a Coleman stove to take on your adventure by matching its best use to your needs. Propane stoves work well for car camping trips. They are larger in size but give you more space to cook. Liquid fuel stoves allow easier access to fuel when propane isn't available. Take a backpacking stove when you have to haul your stove in your pack. Coleman portable grills work great for camp-side barbecues.
