CANVAS WINTER TENTS
Canvas winter tents, also called cold weather tents, can withstand extreme temperature and high winds.

5 foot walls measured from outside of tent.
If you plan on leaving your canvas winter tent with stove erected during the winter it is recommended you have steel rafters every 2 feet to handle snow loads. Houses have rafters every 2 feet for snow loads for a reason.
Fly is strongly recommended. Snow and water runs off the smooth poly surface much better than a canvas roof.
Nylon cold weather tents with stove are not recommended. Any sparks from the chimney pipe will easily burn holes in the roof. Even when using a canvas tent with stove it is imperative that you have a tarp, commonly called a fly, to protect your roof. It is much better to have an occasional hole in the fly than the roof.
Some of my customers stack hay bales along the outside wall of their cold weather camping tent for insulation and to blunt any strong winds. Using hay bales is more common for extended hunting trips in high wind areas.
Never put a stove directly on top of canvas or vinyl floor. A fire proof mat under the stove is recommended for any canvas winter tent with stove. A fire proof heat shield can be tied to the side wall frame also for extra fire protection.
Regardless of the type of tent you purchase you must purchase a canvas winter tent with stove vent. Correct or common terminology for a tent with stove vent opening is a tent with stove jack.
Hunting in cold weather tents requires a specific stove size for your temperature requirements. You must determine how cold it will be, the weight and size of stove for transporting and also burn time requirements to keep you warm at night.
SHIPPING BAGS for floors, fly, extended fly, porches and cook shacks options are not large enough to be used for storage bags.
RECOMMENDATION: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR TENT ROOF AND FLY TAUT SO WATER CAN QUICKLY BE REMOVED FROM YOUR TENT. Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough" which is a low area just before the sidewall created by a not tight roof or loose fly.
Canvas should be very taut on a tent frame, especially, if set up for extended periods of time and a fly always used. Fly should also be tight to avoid water in an eave trough. Water will eventually go through the fly if saturated for weeks. Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.
Recommend you read TENT SET UP LOCATIONS before you set up your tent to avoid wind issues that can destroy your tent.
Click TENT STOVE for info on 10 different models. A cold weather tent with stove will easily keep you warm at night and dry all your clothes. I normally recommend buying 1 size larger stove than you think you need. Don't put more wood in it than you need to keep warm. If it ever gets really cold when camping you will be able to add more wood to stay warm and comfortable.
Insure you purchase a canvas winter tent with stove vent that allows you to have a wood stove for heat. If you don't plan on initially using it you might change your mind later. Also, it will be much easier to sell a canvas winter tent with stove jack if you decide to give up camping in extreme weather.
A propane stove is not as safe as wood. Every year campers and hunters die in their sleep due to propane leaks.
One year I was lazy and used a propane heater at night because I was going on a short hunting trip. Fortunately, I woke up the first night and smelled a propane leak coming from a defective fitting. The next day I went home for my wood stove. It cost me a day of hunting but it was worth it. I will never use another propane heater. I also use a long-lasting battery lantern to reduce the possibility of propane leaks. I use my wood stove for cooking. However, I do occasionally use a propane stove but I turn off the propane tank and place the tank outside at night.
I have been in many winter tents with stove for the last 50 years. I only had to be lazy one time to almost pay a heavy price for being a fool and too lazy to cut wood.
I am going back to the motto I have had for 50 years, " canvas winter tent with stove." Rich
