This little guy works pretty good went camping with a 7 month old and he cant use blankets. Did pretty well in the 8 person tent in 40 degree weather. I would recomend this heater for smaller tents though. For the larger tents get the bigger heater. All-in-all it helped but the people with bigger tents should get the larger heater. Tip: burn 1 or 2 bottles of propane before you go camping. The new smell of the heating element is strong.

I bought this heater for camping and emergencies. I've used on three camping trips so far this year. It kept a 5 person dome at 64 degrees when it was 42 degrees outside, not bad. Kept the tent at 70 degrees at 50 degrees outside and the last trip 33 degrees outside and 58 in the tent.

Without this we surely would have frozen to death. Woke up in the middle of the night to an ambient temperature of around 39 degrees in our tent. Finally got motivated to get out from under the 3 or 4 blankets and fired this baby up. While it didn't boost the temperature to a tropical level it did get us about a 15 degree increase which made ALL the difference! Yes, it was our first time camping and it was way late in the season, but thank goodness we had the right idea and bought this heater literally the day before we left for the woods! I followed other reviewers advice and burned up a whole tank of propane as soon as I got it to burn off that "new heater" smell. Otherwise, zero complaints about this item, would absolutely recommend it... especially at this price!

I bought this a couple of years ago and have used it only once on a recent camping trip to Michigan, just north of Traverse City. It was mid to late September and a couple of nights got down below 35 degrees....I can handle it, but I have an elderly dog and she, well, any dog owner knows what I mean. I have a 9 x 9 Eureka three season tent, and it took the chill off nicely...wasn't balmy by any means, but without a temp gauge in tent, I would expect it to have kept the tent around 45 -50 degrees. And one small tank was more than enough for the entire night. I bet it keeps a canvas tent or a more enclosed area warmer than the nylon tent that I was in, but it did the trick!! I put it in an old milk crate, so I don't worry that either of the dogs accidentally tip it over. I am still here, so no worries about carbon monoxide poisoning. Unless I am a ghost and don' t know it? he he he...happy camping. ps....as others have mentioned, I did run it for a few hours outside on my back porch before using. It does put off a strong odor at first, but after that, quiet and no odor.

My husband says this heater works well at keeping him warm while hunting. The first time he put it to use it was 19 degrees, he sent me a text saying this heater works great! I ordered online and had it shiped site to store, this was the easy gift I've ever shoped for. Great heater, great price! We live in lower Alabama and 19 degrees is freezing cold to us.

This small heater puts out a rather impressive amount of heat for it's size. You will be dissapointed if you think it should heat a large tent at freezing temps. But if you need enough heat for your hands at a game or heat a smaller tent, you should be happy with the Sportcat. It is just a matter of buying the right tool for the job. I use mine in my boat to warm my hands while fishing or in the deer stand for the same purpose. It comfortably heats my 1 person box blind. I use it any time I need some warmth and don't have electricity.

We bought this heater to use in our hunting blind during the cold winter months. It does a great job of heating it up. We just wanted something to take the chill out of the air and it works great! Very easy to use and very safe. Only the top gets hot, and not the rest of it. Highly recommend this heater.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

This is an excellent product. My only problem is that Coleman must have made some modifications to the product. The instructions on the product and the booklet tell you to turn it on and press the Red igniter button. Well the one I received doesn't have one. It must be lit with a match or lighter. I assume the igniter was removed due to issues with it. Anyone who owns a BBQ with an igniter switch will know, they aren't that great. I have no issues with making the product better but with a company like Coleman you would think they would update the instruction book along with it or at least place an addendum in the package.

Can one adjust the amount of gas the heater uses or is it all on or off?

  • A. No. You need to light it with a lighter or match. The instructions say it comes with an electronic lighter, but this is not true.

  • A. Although your question is over a month old, I hope my answer will help. After unpacking and reading the instruction manual, you will notice there are two illustrations of the SportCat. One has a heat adjustment knob and the other does not. So it depends on which model you get. I purchased the one without any adjustments. This model is either all the way on or totally off.
