NEW HOT TENT - Luxe Hercules - Minus 52°C (-61.6°F) Winter Camping

  • Published on: 01 March 2021
  • My new Luxe Hercules came in, tried it out during the coldest weekend in Manitoba this year. Lots of firsts on this trip, actually cooked real food, broke my tent, truck didn't want to start. This tent is supposed to be a 4 season tent, HAH not even close. Lots of mods required.

    Dude. Either you went up there with someone and they don't want to be photographed, or at 8:48 thru 8:51 on the film you caught yourself a Sasquatch watching. Look behind your tent in the woods.... I can't make it out, but someone is watching you !!!!!

    PROPANE TANKS ARE GOOD BUT WHEN THEY EMPTY OR FAIL YOU'RE IN DEEP TROUBLE IN THOSE TEMP'S. WOULDN'T KEROSENE HEATERS BE MORE EFFICIENT? I MEAN 2-5 GALLON JUGS WOULD LAST A WEEK AND MANY MODELS CAN GET SO HOT ON TOP THEY COOK ANYTHING?

    It would better you manage a fixed cabin or compartment right on the back of your truck. concider all of this is a shelter for night stay. All needs are available inside. Why you bother a lot

    Minus kill yourself omg that is funny my friend. My coldest experience was ~ 52 with no wind living in Saskatchewan. I understand the chilly factor when the wind hits. And if the zippers don't close the door all the way , I think it is classified as a beach tent lol. To be 4 season would require sealed seams and a covered zipper for colder weather. the amount of light through the tent is enough to see how thin the material really is. AS far as cooking in a tent well i don't even know what to say. Something I've never done, ever , until I saw you in the tent. I was wondering if a person really had to , you could have used the shield from the wood stove to cook the fish outside? You could keep an eye on it from that giant hole at the bottom of the door lol .Just a thought. great video i'll be sure to check out more your content.

    That tent looks pretty big. I'm surprised it has a floor, I have seen most hot tents do not.

    The new Davis Go Tent should be in your radar. Be perfect for that kind of cold, and you can't go wrong with anything from Davis. I have a 16x20 from them, it's a palace, but too much space to heat in that kind of cold.

    You should send the tent back! You really do t seem happy with it. If it isn’t what you thought you were getting they should take it back.

    Dude, you are going to die out there!This is the most pathetic video I've ever seen on the subject of winter camping.I can't even believe you paid $1,000 Canadian for a tent they give away free as door prizes at the casinos.Do yourself a huge favor and stay at home and do all your camping in your backyard until you at least have a clue of how dangerous it is out there at those temps. In the meantime do yourself another huge favor and spend some quality time watching some YouTube videos on the subject winter camping. You'll learn a lot.

    I've been watching a lot of these extreme survival videos and I'm surprised how easily they can turn out to be dangerous or even lethal. That kind of activity at -40 could be dangerous just setting things up. I think you need to have a stronger structure, possibly a metal shed with a floor and sealed against the weather, with a stove, with ample pre-cut firewood, all set up in warmer weather, so you can just move in and not have to worry about set up. Just getting into the shed and starting the fire would be nice. I'm not a fan of lugging those propane tanks around. I think I would prefer a wood stove with a good CO detector. You can order 25 lb. packages of dried lentils, split peas, black beans, and white beans for a non-perishable dried food supply. Also, don't forget the rice. For the $1,000 cost, that tent is disappointing and seems like a rip-off. I think the author put himself in grave anger doing this, especially if the vehicles would not start.It seems like the recent popularity of camping and bushcraft has opened the door to a lot of companies or individuals offering inferior products at high prices and scamming customers.

    If you are running a diesel truck always turn your key all the way before start let it sit for 15 to 20 seconds until the light goes off then start never try to just crank on it when it’s that cold out

    Good review, I love the look of that tent but your review helped me look for something else, 1000$ is a lot, you can get an esker for close to that

    Despite the cold, or perhaps because of it, that looks like a great camping trip.

    I made a portable ~14 ft ( 4.3 m) diameter dome from 10' grey electrical conduit sections (for the struts) and having zip-tied, concentric pvc-dual-ring hubs... weighs probably less than 56 lbs. Ooodles of room in it. The cover was free (taped-together salvaged white shrink from bill-boards after the original sectioned tarp wore out). Love camping in it. Serves as a living room addition to an 18 foot camper or, by itself, truck- or car-camping. Not sure how the zip-ties would perform in that cold, though! Love domes! Even wrote a book and put it on KDP.
