UCO has crafted outdoor essentials in Seattle, WA since 1971, when we started stamping aluminum parts for backpacks and ski boots. Over the last four decades we have built hundreds of thousands of lanterns, and we are proud to say that we’re still designing, testing, and manufacturing here in the great Pacific Northwest.

From the Original Candle Lantern™ to our Stormproof Matches, we design and build products that allow you to play in the outdoors with confidence.

Mountaineer, cross-country cyclist, weekend backpacker, or backyard BBQ’er—whatever your passion, your time in the outdoors is our inspiration. Your stories motivate us to continue to do what we do best: build dependable, top-notch outdoor products that deliver heat, light, and power so you can play and stay outside, longer.

Thanks for letting us become a part of your outdoor adventures. And here’s to another half-century of fun.
