Gear Review: Ultralight Titanium Wood Stove for Hot Tenting

Winter camping may not be that popular due to cold weather, special skills requirements and overall hardship perception. But if you learn how to enjoy the outdoors in winter there are a lot of benefits: no crowds, unique winter silence, the special feeling of being able to enjoy the cold, a sense of accomplishment, etc. One of the required skills is staying warm in cold weather and one of the techniques that becomes more and more popular is hot tenting.

Hot tenting is a technique of heating up the inner space of your tent so you can warm up after being long enough in a cold environment. Hot tenting requires a source of heat and a tent that is compatible with a chosen source of heat. There are a few requirements to understand when choosing a particular way of hot tenting:
  • How portable a source of heat is;
  • What type of fuel does it require, and
  • How available the fuel around the camping destination
If a source of heat is heavy and also requires fuel that cannot be obtained locally, for example, a propane-powered heat radiator, that limits how far one can hike carrying the added weight of a heater a fuel, and how long one can stay outdoors depending on the available amount of fuel.

This is why wood-burning tent stoves have been one of the most popular heating choices for hot tenting, even though they are not lightweight but use locally found fuel and can be used for a long time.

Now that titanium has become a much more affordable choice for building outdoor equipment, lightweight titanium wood-burning tent stoves provide great opportunities and many benefits for winter hot tenting. Let's review a very recent product, an ultralight titanium wooden tent stove available at Ali Express.
