Lots of overlap in mine and it's very tight.....I'd say zero chance of leakage.

Yup,I'll use a floor protector.  I have a spark arrester with a a cap that will protect the end of the chimney from getting snow or rain down it and our 1 piece titanium foil stove pipe is a pretty safe unit.  Feel it's all pretty fool proof!

They are a really good company to work with.  I used the Nuway 4000 last season in a bigger shelter and it has always worked well.  I use titanium foil as a chimney and it rolls into the stove box.  It took me a while to figure out how to get a damper working and to get it to full power but it was user error...nothing wrong with the stove!

Put in the Nuway 4000 Propane stove and Cot.  This tent fits cots very efficiently beside the stove but you are limited to two cots practically.  It got to shirt sleeves pretty fast, (0 degrees C outside).  Need to wait for colder weather to give it a real test/



Here is a video of the AO with NuWay 4000 vented propane stove...clean and easy

Damn...this is a nice piece of gear.  At 40 pounds with floor save it's a bit much for man hauling but way lighter than the traditional umbrella tent style AO's and better in the wind.  For skidoo and freighter canoe use I think this be the bomb!  Also takes a wood stove or propane stove with a stove pipe.  Insulated so it will be very warm.

I subscribed and put you over the top.

Ok..I made it.  Thanks to all of you fine folks.  That's a great feeling.  I am feeling a debt of gratitude.  This is going to sound sappy but I always did my channel to suit myself.  I now realize I work for all of you.  Thanks so much...I'll do my best to create the best content I can.

Just drop a bison roast at 48 Alsek and we'll be even ;)...

Well Moose I seem to know how to get...Bison not so much!

They used to monetize at 10,000 views.  Now it's 4,000 hours watch time/year and 1000 subscribers.   I think they are a victim of their success, don't have the human staff to keep an eye on all their content makers to protect their advertisers so they just decided to take out their basement rather than hire some staff.  I have about 9000 watch hours/year but am at not quite 1000 subscribers. I think I'll make it thanks to the response but it has been a bit of a slap.  Sort of like being fired from a volunteer job, though I probably make 2.00/hour  while spending thousands on the gear I review.  Would have bought it anyway....... but not a profit motive for sure.

Tents and Shelters / Arctic Oven on Propane

Went looking for Bison this weekend here in the Yukon and didn't find any.  Did however have a great camping experience with the Arctic Oven and the Nu-way propane stove. When you are busy there is nothing much better than the all night convenience of a safe, vented propane system and an insulated tent if you have the big home-made Siglin style skimmer and the Horse Power to carry everything.   This is the video.  Consider subscribing.  18 more subscribers to go and I crack 1000 subscribers and keep my YouTube status.  Thanks.....all about the AO Arktica and Nu-Way stove...great combo.  Added drama of being stranded at the end.

Today for Christmas my wife got me a Kni-Co woodstove for below -20C use.  It should come in handy over the next month or two!  I'll let you know how it works in the AO.

The arctic Oven is one warm tent, but so heavy and  bulky we sold ours to get a snow trekker.
I have a few friends that uses theres(arctic ovens) above tree line as base camp in the white and Haines pass or on the Quest trail for Fat bike trip support camps and they use similar stove if I'm not mistaken!!

Yup it was a guy in my fitness group here in Whitehorse that put me on to the Nu-Way stove. He uses one in his AO.  The Arctic Oven is like bringing a Yurt.  The Snow-Trekker is 1/3 the weight.  However, nothing is as dry and cozy as the AO , the NU-Way allows for a constant heat that takes the sting out of winter camping.

Fire and Woodstoves / Nuway Propane Stove in an Arctic Oven

At anything -20C and warmer I find a wood stove in the Arctic Oven a bit too hot, followed by too cold.  Hard to create a long lasting fire that's just right in the small stove box that burns low enough for an insulated tent...so, I have gone to propane.  Have a 28,000 BTU NuWay that burns about 1 pound of fuel an hour when full out.  At -20 I get the Arktica up to +10 or so for 2-3 nights on one 20 pound bottle.  If it's warmer I can burn 1/2 a pound of fuel/hour for 4-5 nights.  The thing vents out of a chimney and creates some really steady heat.  It's like staying in a cabin.  When hunting or otherwise busy it allows less time on wood prep.  When it dips below -20 wood puts out way more BTU's but even then is no where as near steady as the Nu-Way.

It's hard to replicate the effects of vapex....it's a spun polyester with an unmatched ability to vent.  I have always been totally impresed with how dry the tent stays even at -40.   So yes it insulates but it breathes very well too.  I haven't seen an easily available material like it but I am sure it could be sourced somewhere.

Good comparison..I think they might have been influenced by the Timberline in their design process.
