    Winter Camping with Hexpeak XL Tipi and 3W Tent Stove

    Winter backpacking is one of our favorite ways to spend time in the backcountry, when it involves a hot tent. We backpacked into a beautiful location with the Luxe Hexpeak XL and 3W wood stove and enjoyed a cozy evening around the stove, with good food and company. A light snowfall to calm the evening before bed. Starting the morning with a hot cup of coffee, straight from the heat of the wood stove is our way to enjoy a winter day in the backcountry.
