The Feuerhand Hurricane Lantern has been produced by the same factory in Hohenlockstedt, Germany for over 100 years. Before the advent of the electric handheld light, lanterns like this were broadly used – especially during storms and high winds.
With a burning time of 20 hours, this hurricane lantern makes a great addition to the camping equipment, it’s also a useful thing to have around during power cuts and zombie attacks.
