Wood Stove Jack for Dome Tent
The Hercules Hot Tent 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 replaceable 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 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.
The wood stove chimney should have a 45 degree pipe before exiting the tent walls. This will also help keep the firebox away from the sod skirts and tent walls. You can also run a straight stove pipe up the center of the floorspace (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.
