Coleman Sportster Portable Stove
‘Classic, reliable camping stove.’
For those looking for a classic, reliable, petrol-burning camping stove, the Coleman Sportster Portable Stove is about as classic and reliable as they come. Runs on unleaded petrol, or, if you prefer, Coleman’s own liquid burner fuel. Sturdy and totally outdoor-ready, the Coleman is a solid investment for a lifetime of camping and hiking. With a runtime of over eight hours, you might even try your hand at some al fresco slow cooking.
Weight and portability
Super portable, if a little wide thanks to the gas canister, the Coleman is designed to live in the boot of your car, then be transported in a large rucksack to your campsite. It comes in a handy carry case box, although it’s probably not the best option for long hikes. More suited to static camping. Measure roughly 15 x 12 cm and weighs 522 g (1.4 kg with canister attached.)
Made to last, the Coleman Sportster Portable Stove is constructed using steel and aluminium alloys. Comes in a hard plastic carry case, the Coleman Sportster is going to be with you for years.
Works with a simple plunger valve operation system, the Sportster is unfussy, but extremely well made. Built to last and to heat food and water fast, we love this little stove, as it punches way above its weight.
Why we love it
The Sportster lives to be out in the field. It burns long and strong and is a solid investment that’ll last for years. Great value for money.
