Coleman SportCat

3 posts in this topic

I was fortunate enough to receive a Coleman SportCat catalytic heater for Christmas this year. I've never used a heater like this before. I've suffered in my little single man portable with candle lanterns the past several years. They don't provide much heat obviously.

Is this safe to use without vents in my old fish house? Or should I cut some vents? I get a lot of air flow up from the bottom of it because I don't pack snow around the front, it's a flip over style house. I heard the BlackCat heaters from Coleman say they are safe for indoor use. The SportCat doesn't say that anywhere on the box.

Thanks for any help.

You should be fine with the minimal ventilation that you already have. The Sportcat only puts out like 1100 BTU's, so it really doesn't consume a ton of oxygen or produce a lot of co2. You will like the Sportcat, not a ton of heat, but you can put the unit very close to you. Perfect for warming up the hands after catching a fish or puttin on a minner.

Also, I plan on keeping one running overnight in my tent while winter camping, and I'm not too worried about suffocating in my sleep.

I use the Blackcat in my 1-man FishTrap with no problems. I'm usually burning my Coleman lantern at the same time. Remember CO2 builds up in your system over time.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
