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.

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.
