Short on time? The Russian Bear Hot Tent is my pick for the best tent with a stove jack.

If you resonate with either of these problems, camping with a wood-burning stove might be your new favorite thing. 

When you have a winter camping tent with a stove jack, you can safely and quickly heat your tent without the hassle or danger of running an extension cord to your tent.

Built-in Stove Jacks

#1 Happybuy Bell Tent

Happybuy Bell Tent

Our rating: 4/5
Floor space: ~75.4 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 98.4 inches
Weight: 44-103.6 lbs
Capacity: 5-12 people 

The Happybuy Bell Tent is a 4-season yurt-style tent made of cotton canvas. Canvas is a naturally waterproof material and this canvas, in particular, is heavy-duty, with 300 gsm fabric and a PVC coated 540 gsm groundsheet. 

This tent is shaped like a small circus tent with the center pole made of solid steel. This ensures the tent stays up in rough weather, but it also adds to the weight of the tent. 

Because of the higher weight, this Happybuy tent is a good option for car camping or backyard camping with kids. 

Happybuy Bell Tents with stove jacks come in a variety of sizes, sleeping a minimum of five people and all the way up to 12.  

This tent is suitable as a winter tent, but also has four mesh zipper windows and roof vents for improved airflow in the warmer months. 

Lastly, the setup for this tent is remarkably fast for a canvas tent, taking around 30 minutes total. 

PROS

  • Cotton canvas is naturally waterproof
  • Fast setup time
  • Good airflow
  • Reasonably priced

CONS

  • Heavy

#2 OneTigris TEGIMEN Hammock Hot Tent

OneTigris TEGIMEN Hammock Hot Tent

Our rating: 4/5
Floor space: 82.5 sq ft
Doors: 2
Peak height: 74.8 inches
Weight: 6.8 lbs
Capacity: 1-2 people

The OneTigris Tegimen Hammock Tent is a lightweight, 4-season wall tent made of waterproof material and is my pick for the best budget tent with a stove jack. 

Unlike other camping hammock shelters, which fit over the hammock like a cocoon and provide flimsy coverage, the OneTigris Tegimen Hammock Tent provides ample shelter from wind and rain. 

The tent is designed to fit over a camping hammock, allowing you to sleep without a sleeping bag (if you wish). 

The durable material (70D nylon) that this tent is made out of is also waterproof with a waterproof rating of 3000mm, which is a great rating. 

It also uses high-quality zippers, which may seem like a small addition, but tent nerds will agree this is a nice feature. 

The stove jack design is also well done on this tent: it has two stove jacks, which means it’s able to accommodate multiple camping stove types. 

Finally, if you enjoy camping but like to keep your gear to a minimum, this tent is light enough to be a backpacking tent. 

It doesn’t come with poles, but instead uses pegs and guylines to support the structure. And even if you’re not into hammock camping, you can still set it up and put camping cots in it. 

Overall, this tent is excellent for camping away from the cold ground with snow underneath you and allows for a toasty interior with two stove jacks.

PROS

  • Durable, 70D nylon
  • Good waterproof rating 
  • Two stove jacks
  • Lightweight

CONS

  • No poles mean you need to be skilled with guylines

#3 Danchel Outdoor 4 Season Canvas Yurt Tent

Danchel Outdoor 4 Season CanvasYurt Tent

Our rating: 4.5/5
Floor space: 132.7 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8.2 feet
Weight: 60 lbs
Capacity: 4 people

The Danchel Outdoor 4 Season Tent is the perfect canvas tent for your next glamping trip

This all-season tent is made of high-quality material and comes in a variety of sizes (size/weight/height above are listed for the smallest tent). 

The doors and windows have a double layer of mesh on the inner tent and canvas on the outside. There are also four roof vents for ventilation and small storage pockets around the edge of the tent.

The center pole is made of galvanized steel (in other words, it’s strong) and all the seams are double-stitched for added strength. 

Additionally, there are two stove jacks on the top and sidewall (5.9’’ diameter), and there’s a covered “wiring hole” you can run an extension cord through. In my opinion, this is what makes the Danchel cotton bell tent one of the best winter tents for glamping. 

Lastly, the tent door is designed so there’s no gap between the floor and the door zipper, helping keep critters out. 

Note that this tent, as most canvas tents, isn’t intended to be left up for extended periods. In rainy climates, all canvas will start to mildew and the weight of snow on the roof may eventually cause a tear around the center pole. 

PROS

  • Great for glamping
  • Small storage pockets around the interior
  • Double-stitched seams
  • Two stove jacks

CONS

  • Won’t hold up for long term use in high moisture environments (most canvas won’t)

#4 Whiteduck Regatta Canvas Bell Tent

Whiteduck Regatta Canvas Bell Tent

Our rating: 5/5
Floor space: 132.7 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8.2 feet
Weight: ~70 lbs
Capacity: 4-10 people

The Whiteduck Regatta Canvas Bell Tent is one of the best tents in the canvas tent market. It’s a 4-season tent with a stove jack and water-resistant PE groundsheet. 

This is a canvas glamping tent that sleeps 4-10, depending on the size you choose. For this review, I’m talking about the 6-person tent, which is listed as the 13’ option. 

This tent is made of proprietary Dynaduck Canvas, which is weatherproof and treated with fire, mold, and UV-resistant coating. It has anti-wick zippers, double-stitched seams, and reinforced corners. 

When it comes to large bell tents, you usually have the option of having the floor sewn-in or zippered-in and each option comes with pros and cons. 

This canvas tent has a sewn-in floor, which helps keep moisture out. The downside of the sewn-in floor is that it can make the tent a little harder to clean. 

When shopping for hot tents, you should always make sure the stove jack comes with a durable cover over the stove hole and plenty of ventilation. Luckily, the Whiteduck Regatta comes with four roof vents and mesh on the door. 

Another thing to consider if you want a stove inside your tent is the height of the tent walls. You don’t want low tent walls because it might be hard to keep enough distance between the tent stoves and the fabric. The tent walls on this tent are 2’7’’, which is taller than a lot of other models. 

PROS

  • Proprietary canvas is treated for fire, mold, and UV resistance
  • High tent walls
  • Anti-wick zippers
  • Double-stiched seams

CONS

  • Expensive

#5 Preself 4 Person Lightweight Tipi Hot Tent

Preself 4 Person Lightweight Tipi Hot Tent

Our Rating: 3.5/5
Floor space: ~132.7 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 7’3’’
Weight: 5 lbs
Capacity: 2-4 people

The Preself 4 Person Lightweight Tipi Hot Tent is a 2-4 person backpacking tent with a quick setup. This is one of the best tents for camping in the backcountry as it’s a small and lightweight tent with a stove jack. 

This winter tent is made of waterproof polyester (2000mm rating) and, a feature unusual to backpacking tents, has a very tall peak height (7’3’’). 

The diameter of this tent is 13’, which makes the total square feet inside the tent around 132.7 square feet. 

Keep in mind, however, that the tipi design means the slanted walls eat up a lot of that usable floor space. There may be plenty of space for sitting and sleeping, but don’t plan on having a dance party in here.

This tent doesn’t include a floor either, but that’s somewhat expected for lightweight tents. The tipi design is still a good shape for withstanding wind and rain, and you can always bury the edges of the tent in the snow to keep them anchored down.

Finally, this tent is made of flame retardant material which self-extinguishes fire. This is a very important feature in a backpacking tent since you may be sleeping close to the woodstove. 

PROS

  • Good waterproof rating (2000mm)
  • Lightweight
  • Tall peak height
  • Flame retardant material

CONS

  • Floor is not included

#6 Playdo 4-Season Waterproof Cotton Canvas Bell Tent

Playdo 4-Season Waterproof Cotton Canvas Bell Tent

Our rating: 4/5
Floor space: 415.5 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8.2-13.1 feet
Weight: 42.4 lbs
Capacity: 5–7 people

The Playdo 4 Season Waterproof Cotton Canvas Bell Tent is a 4-season canvas tent with a five-inch stove jack hole and electric cable access. 

The cotton canvas has a thickness of 300 gsm and the floor of this tent is zipped in, which makes it easy to remove and wash separately. 

This canvas tent is supported by galvanized steel support poles and takes around 20 minutes to set up, which is pretty impressive for a canvas tent (they’re notoriously bulky and heavy). 

The Playdo Bell Tent also does well in high winds, just note that the guy lines might need tightening after a big storm as they’re made of slippery nylon. 

The windows and door come with bug mesh, so there’s plenty of ventilation in the summer or if your stove makes the interior too hot and you need to air it out. 

The big downside to this tent is that it suffers from poor-quality zippers (remember I told you zippers matter!). There can sometimes be a small amount of water leakage through the window zippers when it rains and the zippers can also be a little sticky. 

PROS

  • Zippered-in floor is easy to remove for cleaning
  • Strong central pole
  • Fast setup

CONS

  • Guy lines need to be kept tight
  • Poor quality zippers

#7 Wintent 4 Season Waterproof Teepee Tent

Wintent 4 Season Waterproof Teepee Tent

Our rating: 3.5/5
Floor space: 98.5 sq ft
Doors: 2
Peak height: 7.8 ft
Weight: 18.7 lbs
Capacity: 1-4 people

The Wintent 4 Season Waterproof Teepee Tent is a minimalist winter camping tent with a removable inner tent made of mesh. 

The removable inner tent creates space to sleep up to four people. Without the inner mesh, the tent acts more like a floorless shelter. 

This four-season tent can fit a hot stove inside with a 4.7’’ stove pipe diameter and has two doors for very easy in and out access. 

This Wintent tent is made of Oxford material, which is not the norm for tents; most tents are made of nylon, polyester, or canvas. Oxford material, however, is lightweight and waterproof when it’s treated with polyurethane material. 

On the con side of this tent, although it’s on the smaller side, it’s still supported by a central pole in the middle. 

In such a small space, this makes it a little harder to maneuver around, especially in tents with a stove jack. You’ll want to make sure the tent is staked out very securely before you climb in and get the fire started. 

This tent is also made by a foreign company and the instructions are not in the clearest English. Despite this, it’s a great tent for the money and easy enough to set up. 

PROS

  • Lightweight
  • Removable inner tent
  • Reasonably priced

CONS

  • Central pole may be annoying in a small tent
  • Instructions are slightly unclear

#8 Unistrengh 4 Season Waterproof Cotton Canvas Bell Tent

Unistrengh 4 Season Waterproof Cotton Canvas Bell Tent

Our rating: 3.5/5
Floor space: 62.2 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8.2 feet
Weight: 44.1 lbs
Capacity: 2-4 people (up to 20 with the largest model)

The Unistrengh 4 Season Canvas Bell Tent comes in five sizing options for hot winter camping, but I’m focusing on the 3m size since this is the size most people get. 

The material is 300gsm cotton canvas with double-stitched seams for added strength. The canvas is treated with UV and water repellent finish. 

As a bonus, the entire canvas tent and all the accessories pack into one carry bag for easy carrying. 

This winter tent also comes with an electrical cord inlet and the doors have mesh screening in addition to the canvas flap. 

Additionally, there are four mesh pockets for storage on the inside of the tent and the floor can be zipped off of the body of the tent. You can then roll up the sides of the tent to create an airy and shaded lounging space. 

This Unistrengh tent comes in basically any size you could want. There’s plenty of room in each model to keep a stove inside and, due to the extra-large sizing options, this would be a great tent for festivals or large family gatherings. 

One thing to note is that the hardware (tent stakes) are a little flimsy, so you should probably plan on buying your own.

PROS

  • Five-inch tent stove hole is made of fire-resistant material
  • Many sizing options
  • Material treated with UV and water repellency
  • Electrical cord inlet

CONS

  • Flimsy tent stakes

#9 OneTigris Iron Wall Stove Tent

OneTigris Iron Wall Stove Tent

Our rating: 5/5
Floor space: 86.6 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 5.2 feet
Weight: 4.2 lbs
Capacity: 1-2 people

The OneTigris Iron Wall Stove Tent is a lightweight backpacking tent with an inner tent/outer tent design, where the inner tent is made of mesh. I recently used this tent for winter backpacking with a tent stove and it worked great. 

The outer fabric is made of 20D silicone-coated nylon with a 2000mm waterproof rating. The zippers are high quality (YKK brand) and the center pole is made of aluminum (so it’s nice and lightweight).

There are also two roof vents for insulation and lots of tie-outs to help keep the tent in one place during windy nights. 

I didn’t use the inner mesh tent while camping. Rather, I spread down a separate waterproof floor sheet that I bought separately and buried the edges of the outer tent with snow.

This tent is very lightweight, yet the material holds up just fine even if it’s continuously snowing. 

One criticism I have of hot tents that aren’t spacious wall tents: you have to be very careful how many people you fit into a tent with a stove. Case in point  – I accidentally left my backpack too close to the stove and it still has a burn hole in it to this day. 

PROS

  • Waterproof material
  • Quality YKK zippers
  • Lightweight yet strong
  • Great for backpacking

CONS

  • Small size requires extra caution if using a stove

#10 Seek Outside 4 Person Tipi

Seek-Outside-4-Person-Tipi

Our rating: 5/5
Floor space: 115 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 6’10’’
Weight: 4 lbs 12oz
Capacity: 2-4 people

The Seek Outside 4 Person Tipi is a super lightweight backpacking tent with a stove jack and is my pick for the best hot tent for backpacking. 

Like most of the tents on this list, this tent comes in bigger and smaller sizes, and you can choose the size of the liner you want, making this tent highly customizable. 

The Seek Outside 4 Person Tipi doesn’t come with a floor, but as with the OneTigris backpacking tent above, this isn’t really a problem for most tents with a stove inside. 

This is because the stove helps dry the ground out, and you can also easily put down a ground tarp, or in this case, purchase a tent liner. 

The stove jack on the Seek Outside tent is made with lightweight fiberglass lining. This can withstand several thousand degrees of heat, which is one of the reasons I chose it as my top pick for backpacking. 

The Seek Outside company offers a few nice accessories that are available for purchase as well.

You can buy two different sizes of tent liners that help keep the condensation off you, a ground tarp, reflective guy lines (nice for helping to avoid tripping over them), and twisted stakes that stay in the ground better than straight stakes. 

This is a specialty tent for hot tenting but it’s also an all-weather tent. Without the stove inside, you can also sleep more people in the shelter. 

Finally, this tent is very lightweight and the center pole is made from carbon fiber (a super lightweight material), which makes it ideal for backpacking. 

PROS

  • Very lightweight
  • Durable
  • Highly flame-resistant stove jack
  • Lots of accessories to customize to your needs
  • Option for a liner

CONS

  • Expensive (but you get what you pay for)

#11 Stout Tent Pro 4M Bell Tent

Stout Tent Pro 4M Bell

Our rating: 4/5
Floor space: 132.7 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8’2.5’’
Weight: 50
Capacity: 2-4 people

The Stout Tent Pro 4M Bell Tent is a 360gsm waterproof canvas hot tent with a removable floor. 

The canvas for this tent is sourced in the USA and the tent uses “military-grade” zippers. There are also extra layers of reinforced canvas at the pressure points (like where the center pole meets the top of the tent, corners, etc) and the entire tent is double-stitched for extra strength. 

Bell-shaped camping tents are a naturally good shape for withstanding wind and sloughing off snow and rain, and this tent, in particular, uses a “Quiet Night” design. 

This type of design makes sure there aren’t extraneous flaps that make noise during the night. If you’ve experienced the nuisance of a noisy tent before (I have) you know this is a thoughtful and helpful design feature. 

Rather than grommets to stick stakes through, this tent uses stainless steel D-rings, which are less prone to rusting and tearing than grommets. 

You can choose the single canvas wall option for this tent, or purchase an extra “Bug Guard Wall,” which is a bug mesh that you can zip in instead of the sidewall. This is also a nice feature to add ventilation in the summer. 

Lastly, the hole for the stove pipe has an adjustable opening between 3-6 inches. 

PROS

  • USA-sourced canvas
  • “Military-grade” zippers
  • Zip-off floor
  • Adjustable stove jack
  • Quiet design

CONS

  • Have to purchase the mesh walls separately
  • There are sometimes canvas quality issues from the manufacturer (so you should double-check everything before taking it on a camping trip)

#12 Pomoly HEX Plus Hot Tent

Pomoly HEX Plus Hot Tent

Our Rating: 4.5/5
Doors: 1
Peak height: 8.83 ft
Weight: 15.0 lbs
Capacity: 4, 5, or 6 person options

The Pomoly HEX Plus Hot Tent is a waterproof tipi-style family camping tent with a stove jack. 

I rate this as a family camping tent because it’s small and lightweight enough not to be a huge burden to those with kids. It also offers just enough space for a small family (although you may want two tents if you have more than 1-2 kids).

The tent packs up neatly into a 2 x 8-inch bag and is made of waterproof 300D silver coated Oxford material. 300D is a very strong fabric rating if you’re not familiar with the denier system. This amount of fabric thickness also adds insulation to the tent and is easy to clean.

The stove jack is 4.7-5.5 inches in diameter, which accommodates most tent stoves and the roof vents are all the way around the top of the tent. You can also remove the top “cap” portion of the tent for extra ventilation. 

The Pomoly HEX Plus Tent doesn’t have mesh windows (or any windows) but has the option to purchase an extra inner mesh liner. This tent also doesn’t have a floor, but with the stove inside, it should help keep the ground dry.

Lastly, the center pole design was redone in 2021 to be thicker (28mm from 25mm) and is made of aluminum alloy (a good mix of strength and lightweight). The tent pegs were also replaced with aluminum alloy to make them lighter and stronger. 

PROS

  • Lightweight
  • Very durable 300D material
  • Good for family cold weather camping
  • Improved hardware as of 2021

CONS

  • Inner mesh liner must be purchased separately
  • No floor (although this doesn’t have to be a huge problem)

#13 Danchel Outdoor 4 Season Cotton Canvas Teepee Tent

Danchel Outdoor 4 Season Cotton Canvas Teepee Tent

Our rating: 3.5/5
Floor space: 211.2 sq ft
Doors: 1
Peak height: 12.6 ft
Weight: 70 lbs
Capacity: 5-7 people

The Danchel Outdoor 4 Season Cotton Canvas Teepee Tent is a large, uncomplicated, easy-to-set-up canvas tent with the capability to accommodate a wood stove. 

This tent utilizes a single central pole to support the shape of the tent and comes in two sizing options, both of which are very large and have very tall peak heights (between 9-12 feet). 

The Danchel Canvas Teepee Tent has a floor zippered in and is made of waterproof 540 gsm. However, you’ll need to unzip the floor and place the stove on bare ground or purchase a heat-resistant mat to set it on. 

The material on the tent walls is also pretty thin (285gsm) with little in the way of specs to show me it has been treated to resist UV rays, although it has been treated for mold. 

Lastly, there are three mesh zippered windows and the door comes with mesh as well. 

Keep in mind that as with all tipi-style tents, the standing room is reduced due to the conical shape. 

PROS

  • Easy to set up
  • Large
  • Tall peak height
  • Heavy-duty zippered floor

CONS

  • Heavy
  • Thin tent wall material

#14 Whiteduck Alpha Canvas Wall Tent

Whiteduck Alpha Canvas Wall Tent

Our rating: 5/5
Floor space: 80-384 sq ft
Doors: 2
Peak height: 8’3’’-10’
Weight: 153 lbs +
Capacity: 6-20 people

The Whiteduck Alpha Canvas Wall Tent is one of the few cabin tents with a wood stove on this list. 

This is not a cheap tent, but you get what you pay for and this is a great option for luxury camping and large family events. 

Th Whiteduck Alpha Canvas Tent is supported by an aluminum frame with a pitched roof and comes with a free-floating floor (you don’t have to buy it separately). The whole tent also packs into a carrying case for easy moving. 

The zippers on this wall tent are the trusted YKK brand and the mesh on the three windows are dipped in PVC, which gives them extra durability. The doors are also equipped with extra fasteners to keep them secure in high wind. 

Remember that Whiteduck uses a proprietary “Dynaduck” canvas that is treated to be UV, mold, and water-resistant. 

The whole tent is also double-stitched, the corners are reinforced, and the floor and sod cloth are made from thick 16 oz polyvinyl. The sod cloth is a strip of material around the edge of the tent that acts like a skirt you can bury, which prevents wind, rain, and critters from getting in.

Just note that large wall tents like this require 2-3 people minimum to set up. This tent comes in five size options that go from large to insanely large. The sizes are suitable for very large family gatherings, hunting cabins, glamping, or as a semi-permanent living space. 

PROS

  • Very high-quality hardware
  • Canvas is treated for UV, mold, and water resistance
  • Large size
  • Tall peak height

CONS

  • Heavy
  • Takes 2-3 people to set up

#15 Russian Bear Hot Tent with Stove Jack

Russian Bear Hot Tent with Stove Jack

Our rating: 5/5
Floor space: 98.52 sq ft
Doors: 2
Peak height: 6.2 ft
Weight: 52.0 lbs
Capacity: 5 people

The Russian Bear Hot Tent with Stove Jack is an extreme cold weather tent with a stove jack. 

It’s a dome-shaped pop-up tent, making the setup for this tent different from all the others on this list. It basically opens up like an umbrella and then you fix the tent body over that. 

The tent body has double-wall construction. It’s also made of Oxford fabric with a 4000mm waterproof rating on the exterior and 2000mm on the interior, making it one of the best tents for weather protection. 

And, if you’re really going to be in the extreme cold, the floor is designed to be zipped back to use as a shelter while ice fishing. 

The Russian Bear Tent is also the only tent on this list that comes with a wood-burning stove included. 

This adds to the price of the tent but also ensures you’re getting a stove that fits your tent well. The stove included is made of ceramic glass, which helps with heat distribution. 

Dome-shaped camping tents naturally hold up well against strong wind, making the Russian Bear another great choice for a winter hot tent. 

PROS

  • Comes with a stove included
  • Excellent waterproof rating
  • Easy setup design
  • Double-walls for insulation

CONS

  • Expensive

#16 Guide Gear Base Camp Tent

Guide Gear Base Camp Tent

Our rating: 4/5
Floor space: 153.9 sq ft
Doors: 2
Peak height: 10 ft
Weight: 62 lbs
Capacity: 4-6 people

The Guide Gear Base Camp Tent is a very large wall tent that accommodates a 5.5-inch diameter stove pipe. 

This tent comes with a fire-retardant panel to be used while the stove is on. It also has a very tall peak height of 10 feet and the sidewalls are four feet tall (which is quite tall compared to most tents).

There are air vents on the ceiling as well as five mesh windows and the door, which reaches six feet, is also zippered with mesh. 

The floor is a bathtub style, which means that the extra durable floor material extends a few inches up the side of the tent. That way, if water starts streaming towards your tent as it often does in a storm, it won’t immediately soak into the less waterproof wall material of the tent. 

The hardware on the Guide Gear Base Camp Tent is made of alloy steel and aluminum, which are good options for strength and they’re also lightweight. 

One of the standout features of this tent is the vestibule with the awning in the front. The vestibule is like a mudroom for the tent and is a great place to store muddy, wet gear. In addition to the shaded vestibule, there’s a little side awning you can place chairs under. 

PROS

  • Lots of interior space with plenty of headroom
  • Two awnings for added outdoor space
  • Comes with a fire-retardant mat
  • Bathtub floor

CONS

  • Heavy
  • Couldn’t find any waterproof specs, so it might not have the highest quality waterproof rating 

Buying Guide: How to Choose the Best Tent with a Stove Jack

What to Look for in Tents with Stove Jacks

What to Look for in Tents with Stove Jacks

Quality Material

The best tents with stove jacks are made of high-quality materials that are treated for fire retardancy. Most commonly, these materials are canvas or Oxford, but silnylon is an option too. 

Not only should the entire tent be treated to be flame retardant, but there should be a square of completely fire-proof material directly surrounding the stove pipe. 

Fire Mat Included

A stove inside a tent can generate a tremendous amount of heat. Even fire-retardant materials will benefit from having an additional fire mat under and behind the stove. 

Overall Durability

One of the biggest safety concerns when hot tenting is that your tent may blow over or be shaken enough that the hot stove will touch a flammable surface. 

For this reason, invest in a high-quality tent with a sturdy design (any shape can be designed sturdily). 

Types of Tents with Stove Jacks

Types of Tents with Stove Jacks

Backpacking Tents 

A backpacking tent is typically a small tent with a stove jack. They’re usually made of thin material and sometimes don’t have a floor. Rather, some backpackers use a separate groundsheet to sleep on. 

Pop-Up Tents

Pop-up tents with stove jacks are intermediate between backpacking tents and canvas tents in terms of weight and difficulty to set up. These are typically shaped like a standard family camping tent. 

Canvas Tents

Canvas is one of the most common materials to use with a stove jack because it’s naturally durable and thick. Canvas tents tend to be heavy, and setup can be complicated, but the benefit is that you have a very durable shelter afterward. 

FAQs About Tents with Stove Jacks

FAQs About Tents with Stove Jacks

Can I put a stove jack in any tent? How do I install a stove jack in a tent?

No, you cannot put a stove jack in any tent. Fire safety is the most important element to consider. Tents need to be made of fire-resistant material and have proper ventilation to avoid a fire hazard. 

If your tent is made of quality material and you’re certain you won’t injure yourself, there are tutorials on how to install a stove jack into a tent. 

However, there’s specific hardware you’ll need to use to install a stove jack. This is not the time for jerry-rigging! Here’s a quick video guide on how to do it properly: 

What tents can I put a stove in?

You can only put stoves into tents with a designated stove jack. Don’t try to use a wood-burning stove in a tent that isn’t designed for one. 

Simply sticking the stovepipe out of a window or door runs the risk of melting the fabric around the stove pipe. 

Is hot tenting safe?

Yes! Hot tenting with a stove jack is safe as long as you follow some common-sense safety precautions. 

When correctly set up, the fire-retardant fabric around the stove jack prevents the very hot stove pipe from ever touching the walls of the tent. 

Making sure your stove and stovepipe are cleaned out between uses also prevents smoke and carbon dioxide from backing up into the tent.

Regardless, always have a fire extinguisher handy if you’re hot tenting. 

How hot do hot tents get?

how hot do hot tents get

A hot tent with a stove jack can get into the 70s F in the dead of winter. In warmer temperatures, you can easily heat your tent into the 80s or 90s F. 

How much should I expect to spend on a tent with a stove jack?

Winter tents with stove jacks run anywhere from a few hundred dollars to $2,000 or more. The average for a high-quality tent with a stove jack will be around $1,000. 

Conclusion: Our Pick for the Best Tent with a Stove Jack

The Russian Bear Hot Tent with Stove Jack is my pick for the best hot tent. 

The Russian Bear Winter Tent is made of very high-quality, waterproof material, has an easy setup design, and comes with a wood-burning stove included.
