Hercules stove tent buyer guide

1. sed it the last few nights, and doing comparisons of other test this next weekend.
Only real thing I didn’t like was the flap above where the Velcro was at for the stove Jack leaked every once in a while. Not a deal breaker.

2.I used my hurcules all last winter. Works well for solo trips but it’s a bit of a pain to set up alone and I snapped a couple pole sections. Outside of that it’s a good tent.

3.Luxe is bottom of the barrel regarding quality of craftsmanship. Cheap materials, minimal stitching and seam reinforcement. Cabelas offers a very similar tent that has proven to hold up to some nasty conditions.
Look up the cabelas Alaskan guide model tent. The vast majority of outfitters use them up here in Alaska.
If you want a hot tent, I’d recommend seek outside or arctic oven or you can just install a stove jack in it yourself.
