Hi everyone Happy New Year.
I just read an article on Kifaru in backpacker magazine, I think it was an old one, anyway they said something like if it was 0 outside that they could get the temperature up to forty degrees inside the 4 man tipi. If I remember right doesn't say the large stove in the 8 man tipi get it warmer than that. Just wondering, I would hope it would warm it up more that that. Input is appreciated thanks.

TJW--
Happy New Year to you too!
I've never understood where BP Mag got that 40 degree figure. It was either a misprint or the testers were being real timid with their fire; probably it was the first time they used the system. For example I've heard feedback from tipi buyers to the effect that they were nervous about stoking the stove any further when the stovepipe began to glow red. Which is nonsense--the thing was designed for full-tilt usage. In any event, the medium stove in a 4 man tipi will raise the inside temperature of the tipi at least 100 degrees.

Just last week, I recorded the temp of an 8 man with a large stove at 130 at the clothsline and 84 at two feet above ground. This was a good hot fire but nothing compared to a fire Patrick & I had going back in October.

I had a similar experience on my inaugural 8man ultralight with large stove trial: 26F outside, 70-80F a couple feet up and thermometer pegged at 120+F at the clothesline. And, this all happens really really quickly. Great stuff.
