      I have a very small, Gaz lantern (80 watts) that is about 6 1/2" high
      and 3 1/2" square that came in it's own, plastic carrying case----
      like that you see with large, Coleman lanterns. (The case doesn't
      carry the fuel can) But it it rigid and protects the lantern, globe,
      etc. I bought this model especially for the carrying case.
      Depending on the size of your lantern, you could cut the top off a
      plastic, milk, quart container and reinforce it with duct tape, etc.,
      and bubble wrap your lantern inside. Good luck.
