Bumping this back up for folks to see which should answer many questions they have with their tents ( wall and flexbow) and future desires.  People that have contacted me, I'll get responses soon but until then read this thread again and I'll get clearer answers if needed. Just got back from vacation and trying to catch up.

Just dropped off my kodiak at the canvas shop to put in a stove jack!

Bumping this back up to help answer some questions one been getting lately. After a while and many uses, I still love everything I've done and purchased for this tent.

Got my 10x14 Kodiak canvas this year and used it on three hunts. Loved it.

I had a stove jack installed at Beckel Canvas in Portland for about 80$.

I went with a kni-co stove. I'm happy with it but I still may upgrade to a four dog stove in the future. The kni-co got the job done. But it isn't air tight and is pretty thing. I think you could get a much longer fire out of a four dog. But overall I'm happy with it.

I used only an oil drip pan underneath and I wasn't concerned about any excessive heat on the floor.

If you're thinking about this tent and putting a stove in, do it!

I upgraded mine and it worked great!  I bought a stove from a local manufacturer here in Rathdrum Idaho.  http://www.secondroundwoodstoves.com.  I really like the stove and the cost!  $145 out the door and he got it done in a week.  I ordered the stove jack from Outfitter Supply  http://www.outfitterssupply.com/Stove-Jack-with-Canvas-Edging/productinfo/WT%20O117C/
I glued it in but plan on having it sewn as well to increase durability.  Didn't haven any issue with the glue, but I want to be sure down the road.  I was in a rush to set this up for a hunt and couldn't get it sewn in time. 

I need to install a damper in the pipe to help it burn longer.   I did add a piece of expanded metal to get a goo draft under the fire when I was starting it.

It was in the low 30's, wet and windy.  Stove kept me very warm at night.

Is there any difference between this material and regular canvas tent material? All the labels on these say not to add wood stoves, just curious what the risks are. Just picked up my 10x10!

I'm not positive, but from what I've seen and felt, it seems to be pretty darn close. I sure did enjoy spending the last five days in my elk hunting. Used the buddy heater for getting into bed. I really enjoy this tent. Congrats on the purchase.

Congrats Stickerbrush! :tup:

I went into Sportsmen's the other day to look at them again. the salesmen said it would be "a good tent if you didn't have to treat the canvas all the time." I do not recall hearing that you need to treat the canvas "all the time" if much at all. Do you guys that own them treat the canvas?

The instructions say it's already treated. Not sure if I'd have to re apply at some point

Salesman is an idiot, you dont treat them all the time.  I have had mine for 8 years and have never treated it once.  And it has been put through the ringer.
