Floor less shelter stove
« on: April 16, 2020, 01:46:32 PM »
I was looking at the 3W stove for my floor less shelter. Easy set up looks nice. What stove do you have?

I use the Seek Outside XL stove in my Seek 8 man tipi.   Lots of use over the years.

Another thing to think of is how fast these stoves burn out. Even xl the fire and the warmth doesnít last too long

Luxe 3W Wild Wild West.  Love the glass door, for light and just to be able to see the fire.

SXL Seek Outside for my 8 man.  Like others mentioned they aren't holding a fire all night, but I don't know of any packable options that would.  Wood quality helps the burn time.

It's great for cooking on, and I watched one of their recent videos on how to use a pan underneath for baking.

The Earth is my floor!  :)

1. Saves weight.  Space to weight is great.  And in the 4 man+ tents, you can stand up in.
2. It's okay to spill coffee
3. Let the dog in...he doesn't have to wipe his paws.
4. Let the kids in...they never wipe their paws even when I ask them too.
5. Floors melt when you have hot stove.
6. Wear your boots.

Let yourself in without having to wipe your paws.  And stand up head room, without removing your boots.

Yes, I bought the extra rack to go under the XL Seek stove.  One of my luxury items to pack into the backcountry is pop tarts, and that rack works well for that.  Haven't tried baking bread or anything on it yet.

I have a Titanium Goat stove, it has been outstanding.  I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

So I have my stove for my floor less shelter. Any issues with heavy rain down the chimney?

Remove the stove pipe from the stove when not in use. Spark arrestor could be removed when raining.

What stove did you go with?

I just got the Seek Cimaron lite with a Seek U-turn.  I have used the tent in the field a few times and it is great.  looking forward to trying out the stove!

I have owned

Seekoutside XL
LiteOutdoors XL
TiGoat Large Wifi
Winnerwell Fastfold


They all work great and each has it's own little perks.

The LiteOutdoors has a baffle which helps with getting the most out of your wood. IF you assemble to stove correctly, not like in the picture shown here, you CAN cook on the LiteOutdoors stove. No, not with a huge cast iron pan, but you can cook on it fine if you use some care.

The Seek stoves are just great and I'll never part with mine.

TiGoat- pretty sure that the inventor died and his son is running the business http://rutalocura.com/cstove.html and last I knew they were way behind. The stoves are great and the work fine. The only complaint I have with them is the door. It's just a hole cut out of titanium foil with a flap that hangs over the hole and it makes for a very hot and fast burning fire.

Winnerwell Fastfold stove is pretty awesome. It sets up faster than all the others. The stove damper is great and the flat surface on top is great for cooking. The only drawback is that it is a bit larger and heavier than the others. I also don't love the stove pipe retention rings as they are a bit loose. It's a nice stove though and I will be keeping if for sure.

Seek SXL

Nice.  Definitely consider leaving off the spark screen during active rain.  Don't use presto logs if you do have the screen in, because it will clog up nicely, making for a smoky tent.  I thought I was being smart, but I probably could have left the screen off, because it was pouring almost the entire time last late modern hunt.

Somebody recommended North Idaho pressed fire logs as an easy truck camping option, instead of presto logs.  I think the presto have some amount of wax, and they are very ashy, which clogged up the spark screen nicely.  You might not have a problem with regular wood, but if you do, remove pipe and knock out the spark screen. 

Advantage to Kifaru on their removable spark screen design.
