The soft, warm glow of gas-powered lanterns has been illuminating all kinds of outdoor adventures for more than a century. Primus’ MicronLantern is a durable and lightweight lantern that is compact enough to take on fast and light climbing, camping or backpacking trips. Available in two versions: this steel mesh one for maximum durability and minimal weight, or in frosted glass for maximum light output. The Piezo ignition lights with a simple push button, while the quiet burner allows you to enjoy the sounds of nature. The adjustable brightness has a maximum output of 235 lumens for the mesh version or 360 for the glass version. A durable plastic carrying case (glass version) or nylon storage sack (steel mesh version) keeps the lantern safe in your pack, while the included hanging system ensures you can use the lantern anywhere, from woodland camps to portaledges

In Latin, the word ‘primus’ means ‘first’. And this Swedish brand has been about firsts ever since its humble beginnings in Stockholm back in 1892, when founders F.W. Lindqvist and J.V. Svenson developed the world’s first soot-free kerosene stove. Portable Primus stoves were cleaner, easier to use and more efficient than anything else then in existence. They were soon adopted by explorers and adventurers across the globe. When Amundsen became the first person to reach the South Pole in 1911, he had a Primus stove with him. So too did the 1953 British Mount Everest Expedition, when Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary became the first people to reach the summit of the world’s highest peak.
Since those ground-breaking firsts, Primus’ range has expanded to encompass a range of outdoor cooking equipment. Of course, portable stoves built for backpackers, campers and climbers are still the brand’s core focus. Designed to withstand extreme conditions, Primus stoves have an enviable reputation for long-lasting reliability and real-world efficiency. So, if you’re looking to achieve your own firsts, whether that’s walking your first long-distance trail or going on your first wild camping adventure, Primus should be your first choice.
