Lantern is 810 lumens but Walmart.com specs show 880. Plenty bright for me, hurts my eyes to stare at it so I would think the Northstar model would be overkill plus its a lot cheaper.

Forget about lumens. Lumen rating is subjective anyway. The bottom line is that this is a brilliant lantern. It will light up you whole campsite so bright that everybody sitting around it can read books.
It is comparable with other generic two lamp lanterns in terms of brightness. I would pick Coleman, though, because you can get parts for them even in the oddest places - if you ever need parts. My Dad used his for forty years and never had to change anything except the filaments and even those lasted for one or two years.

I had been using a white gas coleman and this one is its equal in providing light. Once it is lit, no other lantern is needed at the camp site. I don't have any method of measuring lumens. If you have ever used a lantern with a mantel, you know they burn very bright.

the ad says 880 lumens, however i think it is just something u have to see for yourself, the lumens are supposed to be a more reliable and scientific testing than the candlepower, but i still wonder if all manufacturers dont inflate this number also. i am going to get this light, so i will let ya know what i think, i have used different lights for work in ems, and fancy lighting power
