    Anyone have a hot tent they recommend? Weight doesn’t really matter as I don’t plan on carrying it on my back. I’ve been looking at the Luxe Hiking Megahorn, or maybe even a canvas wall tent. I’m leaning more towards a wall tent due to the increased space on the inside as I want to be able to comfortably hold 4 people. Anyone have anything they’d recommend?

    Kodiak Canvas and add a heater. I cannot say enough good things about my Kodiak Canvas tent.

    Second this. I have a 9x8 and a 10x14. A buddy propane heater in them and its plenty warm. Never had a hint of condensation.

    If you are planning for 4 adults I would recommend avoiding the 10x10. While the diagram of the floor plan says it should work. Due to the slope of the walls fitting full height cots becomes a problem. If you are using short cots or sleeping on the floor then you shouldn’t have a problem thou.

    Do any of the kodiak tents have stove jacks? I’m wanting to use a wood stove.

    You can sew or cloth glue in a stove jack, but they dont come with them. Unless you are going to be out a very long time, I found it hard to justify the woodstove. A 11lb propane cylinder lasts me 7 nights in the winter. Plus the woodstove is way heavier than the buddy heater and tank. Note that the small titanium wood stoves like the ones that come with the kifaru tents have an extremely low burn time. You have to feed them constantly.

    @Boker55 No they do not come with one. I googled it and here are a few I spotted.
    IMO.. Adding one is well worth it based on the quality of the tent.

    Those pictures remind me of another reason I nixed the woodstove idea- it takes up too much room to be safe. The buddy heater can pretty much be anywhere. I actually put the hose out the bottom of the zipper and put the tank outside the tent.

    Go with a Kifaru or Seek Outside tipi tent.
