I have never hot tented in a cotton canvas tent with an interior wood stove. Maybe someday.
But I've spent many winter nights in double walled nylon tents and learned quickly that a candle lantern or Candoil oil lantern can warm up even a 3 man tent very nicely. With two of us in my 3 man dome at -5 F. outside we were warm enough that we could sit and read a book with no need for gloves. My thermometer said it was 40 F. inside the tent near the floor. That's an amazing temperature differential.
I was using plumber's "dripless" stearene candles or, at other times, a Candoil oil lantern. (I think Candoil lanterns are no longer produced.)
Has anyone here who winter camps used candle lanterns and found they warm up the tent nicely?
