    I live in Canada and everytime I go camping it is always super cold and super damp. I pruchased a Coleman Propane Cataylic Heater for the last time I went camping and it worked like a charm. However, it totally freaks me out having to use propane. Also, propane is very large and cumbersome to travel with if you are hiking or on the move.

    Does anyone know what other type of heat source I could get or use to make my tent dry and warm that ISN'T propane? I think with all the innovations that we have today their has to be some sort of memory-cell or solar panel/cell like device that can generate heat and warmth in a environmentally friendly and safe way.


    Not sure. In Australia, I have never needed to heat my tent. I have however used one of those little snap gel pack things (sorry, don't know the tech name!) to heat my toes when I was camping in Alpine country.

    Hopefully someone else may have an idea.
