I'm looking at getting a Hot tent that I can put a small wood burning stove into. Currently I am using a Marmont 2 person and a mr Buddy heater but I just don't like having the propane heater going while sleeping not to mention carrying extra cylinders. I'm not looking for an Ultralight tent/tipi but a Megahorn isn't that heavy at 4.5/5lbs. I was also looking into a titanium stove.
The tent will be used for two people with a stove during hunting season.

Does anyone have any experience with the Megahorn or similar type Tipi tent? Are there other styles to look at? I did find an A style hot tent that looked like it might have a bit more room but not sure if they will handle weather as well as a Tipi.

A buddy bought a "hot tent" and stove for use here in co-- then he sold them with basically no use -- reason=== fire restrictions during hunting season don't allow any use of flames other than enclosed propane the last few years in the area we hunt

I have a good bag. Problem is though when temps drop below zero even the below zero bags don’t seem to cut it. A stove can be stoked and last a couple of hours.

I just got a tipi and stove. I‘m pretty excited to get out and use It. I didn’t not go with Luxe and have never seen one in person but I saw a lot more negative reviews than positive. They are also made in China. Put your money where your MAGA Is and buy something made in the USA.

Care to share what brand you went with?

You have a good bag like western mountaineering bison or cypress for -30 to -45 or so degree comfort, a good bag like feathered friends which go down to -60, sea to summits Alpine for -40 territory...

Or you have a good bag like you bought a $200 Amazon bag that says it's for 0 degrees and hey, that must mean it's good?

My new bag will be the Western Mountaineering cypress with overfill for -35 or so comfort, going with it over the bison simply because I like that it can be completely opened for a quilt like experience when warmer.

Seek outside is where I'm going for a hot tent, courthouse is my baby as far as I'm concerned, with liner, and a nest, and I'll be backpacking it around solo. I hate camping in a tent, so I'm bringing home with me...

I have a Coleman that I bought from Walmart. Hahahahaha

I have a Marmont, forget the model name but it's down and rated to -0. It's a good bag but i'm sort of outgrowing it so I think I may need a newer one. I've been looking at the Wester Mountaineering as well.

bought the 8man SEEK Outside last year. I spent 7 night in Colorado last season and the Ti wood stove was clutch! I would burn it in the evening and light it a few minutes before we wanted to get out of bed. Coffee was ready when I was and got dressed in the warmth!

Seek is made in Colorado and worth a few bucks extra to get the customer service they offer.
Read reviews on the foreign made tents and you will understand.
