Wood Stove Jack for Dome Tent
The Hercules Winter Tent comes with a stove jack and integrated rain cover, so that the pipe from a wood stove can exit a vent in the livable area of the tent.
This replaceable stove jack port is super versatile! It is a 14" x 10" rectangle made of cuttable silicone fiberglass fabric (not seam sealed), built in rain door, so that you can seal the hole when it is not in use, so that your tent stays weatherproof. Suggested chimney diameter no greater than 5" without pipe heat shield.
Designed to fit almost every tent wood stove on the market today. You can run a straight stove pipe up the center, which blocks a door, but leaves 2 usasable doors (with no second rainfly on), and using a tent protector sleeve.
Buckle-in Floor and Internal Sod Skirts
The Hercules can stand-alone as a floorless shelter, but there is an option to clip in the included floor if you choose. This provides full ground cover, or it can be tucked partially away if you wish to burn a wood stove.
