Setting Up Hot Tent Interior

I want to test my new winter gear, so I need to get to setting up the hot tent interior. There are several systems that will go into the set up. First, the stove. Next, the bedding. Finally, the food/meal prep area. Let’s check it out!

Setting up Hot Tent

This season, I am testing the Luxe Outdoors Hercules hot tent. It is an eight person dome style tent with a built in stove jack. There are two ways to heat up a hot tent: wood stove or propane heater. For my main source of heat, I will be using the Pomoly T1 Ultra titanium wood stove. This stove is built for heating a space for three to six people and features two windows, a foldable body, and a weight of eight pounds, including the stovepipe.

I set up the stove already, so I need to setup my bedding and food prep areas. My winter sleep system for this season consists of four items. First, I am using the REI Magma 30 sleeping bag. This bag is rated down to 29 degrees F at a comfort level, and 18 degrees F for survivability. The camp pillow I am using is from Teton Sports and seems to be pretty comfortable. I got a new sleep pad I am testing this season. It is the Exped DeepSleep Mat 7.5 Sleeping Pad in the long extra wide version. It has an R value of 8.5, making it suitable for extremely cold climates.

As for my food prep area, I am using a small table covered with a Peruvian tablecloth. I have a cutting board, my pans, knife, and tea kettle on the table as a little prep area. In a tent this size, it is nice to have a dedicated food prep area. Also, I live in an area without bears, so I can prep and eat food in the tent.
