W.C. Coleman could see the light for the darkness. The young salesman was taking a stroll after a hard day’s work selling typewriters, and spotted a new type of lamplight in a drugstore window in Brockton, Alabama. This new light burned with a strong, steady white flame and was fueled by gasoline. The standard lamp of the era burned kerosene and produced a smoky, flickering, yellowish light. W.C. was stricken with very poor eyesight, and was very interested in this new, steady white light that enabled him to read even the smallest print in books and on medicine bottles. Coleman saw potential in the new light, and through his vision a new company was born that would put America’s farms and ranches in a new light, and would eventually make his name synonymous with outdoor fun.

Today Colemans range of outdoor equopment includes the ever popular Instant Up Tents, Dome Tents, Gazebos, Shelters, Cooking Stoves Grills Cookware and Utensils, Coolers and Water Jugs, Lighting from the Lantern to Headlamps and Torches, Hot Water Systems, A tonne of Camping Furniture, Sleeping Bags Mats and a Huge range of Accessories and Tools such as the WakJak, Axe, Saw, Pegs, Shovels and lots more....
