Noticed that this new tent is already listed for sale. I think there are a few things that should be done in order for it to work properly. There needs to be a “snow skirt” or extra layer of material around the the bottom for piling up snow. Also you can’t have just a hole for the chimney to exit the tent. The heat from the fire will melt the fabric.

Hi Dean~Actually the tent itself could not resist the heat directly from the stove pipe, but every stove will come with a stove jack which needed to be installed by the campers to prevent damaging the tent as well as protecting snow and rainfall from the outside.
The tent was designed as a multi way setup tipi, meaning it can be used as a normal tent but also a winter teepee for campers when the double peg leg is set. I will show you in the following picture of the double peg leg which could "create" a snow skirt for snow pilling.

That helps, thanks. Some other tent manufacturers include the piece that would allow the chimney to pass through.
