Hot Tent Comparison: Our Wood Stove Jack Shelters 2018

We manufacture pyramid, octagon, hexagon and dome shaped hot tents for winter camping. We sew stove jacks into the tent, which makes it possible to put a wood stove inside. This makes it so that you can burn wood as a heat source, to cook food or even dry clothing.

The general rule is (depending on the size of the person and stove) that wood stoves use roughly 1/3 of a tents floorspace to safely operate. This means adding a stove would turn a 2-person into a 1-person shelter, as an example. 

Depending on the size of the person and the stove, you may also have the option to use an inner tent and wood stove together. Generally you can only use a small stove inside a small tent, in this regard.

Hexpeak 1-person and Stove Tipi Hot Tent

Our Hexpeak can use a trekking pole to pitch, making it a lightweight option for backpacking or any outdoor activity where you need a shelter to pack into a small place. The main body of the tent is made of ripstop silnylon fabric, which makes it lightweight and portable.

It has a max size of 2 people (without the stove) and a single door entrance near the stove jack placement, so a larger wood stove would not be as convenient because you would have to avoid brushing up against the hot stove pipe when entering or exiting the shelter.

However, it is our lightest and most packable hot tent, so if weight is the most important to you, than this shelter is the one!

You have the option to use our Half-hex 1.5 inner tent, together with a small wood stove. You may have to use DIY heat shield to protect inner.
