Hot Tent Comparison: Our Wood Stove Jack Shelters 2019

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.

Forest showcase of the 4-person Megahorn Tipi with Wood Stove Jack. This floorless shelter is available in several colors, with optional modular floors or inner tents.

This campsite features the white fabric with a silver pigment on the outside surface and the inside is coated with a UV reflective coating. This is to provide more shelter in extreme heat and the inside reflects more heat when using a wood stove. Adding extra coatings to the fabric also makes it more durable.
