It all began when we created the first portable, gas-powered lantern that illuminated the first evening American football game. During the second World War, our camping stoves transformed the way allied soldiers ate in the field. 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.

Where We Are Today
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.
