The Megahorn XL is a decagon shaped teepee tent designed for cold weather backcountry base camping. A lightweight winter substitute for a wall or outfitter tent. The outer tent sleeps up to 8 people as a fully functional floorless shelter with included removable floor. This tent provides protection from very heavy rain, it is fully portable and easy to set up. It also offers a stove jack port that can be opened and used with a portable tent wood stove or the option to run a chimney through the center using a tent protector sleeve.

About Waterproof Outer Tent
This floorless outer tent has double doors and waterproof fabric to keep rain off you. Then add a groundsheet or an optional inner tent (which keeps bugs out and groundwater out), for an additional cost, or use included removable floor.
Additionally, this teepee comes with retractable snow skirting (near the ground), for those nasty storms. Perfect for a cold weather camping trip!
Included Removable Tent Floor
This shelter includes a removable buckle-in tent floor which you can leave at home to reduce weight, or fold back for a large tent stove.
Stove Jack for Tent Wood Stove
The Megahorn XL comes with a stove jack and rain cover, so that the pipe from a wood stove can exit a vent in the livable area of the tent.
This stove jack port is super versatile! It is a 14" x 10" rectangle made of cuttable silicone fiberglass fabric, surrounded by velcro fabric that you can seal when it is not in use so that your tent stays weatherproof. Out-of-the-box the stove jack port is an oval shape that is 3" x 6" with a hole flap that can create a closure as small as 3" x 2", which can be cut up to 5” with scissors.
We suggest using a wood stove system with the total height of 9.5' for potential sparks and smoke clearance.
This wood stove tent shelter also features a large sealable chimney cap that can be partially opened or removed, at the very top of the teepee. Here a stove pipe with a protective sleeve (if you would like to install a stove near the center pole) or wood fire smoke can exit the top hole of the shelter.
