Got one of those that i use with citronella candles to keep the mozzies away.

Mate of mine has the Nash Bivvy Heater that uses 5 tea lights.

I use one of those mini UCO tea light candle lanterns, gives off no heat whatsoever but gives a nice warm glow in the bivvy which is much nicer than a bivvy light etc, let my clothes do the rest

Not a heater but I take a robens timber mesh grill fire pit that packs down to nothing and a few self lighting g fire logs that usually last around 45 minutes and sit outside in awe nice and cozy watching the fire until bed time

Also got a hash bivvy heater with tea lights which is great as a hand warmer in the bivvy ans the trusty hot water bottle

Yes the best one I have seen in this country is Kent survival,he's got a canvas tipi,and uses a variety of tipis and tent woodstoves,another great bushcraft guy is Simon,a bloke in the woods,he does similar,cept makes his own Baker tents which would put any RM or OZ tent to shame..

I find the whole process fascinating, including the grub they cook up inside on those stoves..

As a minimalist I wouldn't do it,I'd use my layers,..but I have done winter camping using a UCO firepit,when working on a lakes fencing systems...

It's great to learn about something else.

Before I get shot down in flames in my spitfire..bear with..

There are lots of outdoorsmen, who use various forms of small compact woodburners in there shelters,these are made out of stainless or Ti,if you've the money..

Polish lavuus,and the similar modern versions are designed to accept a flue and spark arrestor through the roof of the shelter,with special heat resistant material around the exhaust pipe..

They are common in many countries amongst bushcraft hunting and shooting people..you don't hear of many dying..

Anyway ,check out TA outdoors or Joe Robinet even lone wolf,or Carlisle 195 ,in YouTube..

I'm not saying make a hole in your tempest roof either lol

Just putting it out there..

BTW,down a local syndicate, we have home made chimaeras
in each swim,with a ready supply of wood stacked up ..

Just saying...

A bit late to the party on this one but if you need a heater without the dangers have a look at diesel heaters on eBay.
These come in a metal case with a tank for the diesel.
They come with a pipe which can be run into the Bivvy and the heater left outside.
A mate of mine where my boat is moored has one on his boat.
They throw out a fair bit of heat and they are quite compact.
I will try and get down there this weekend and get some pictures of your interested.
Hope that helps.

Chap I buy my bait from (Hallum Baits P1 - excellent bait by the way) has a similar set up and fished many a winter at Elstow this way . . .2x 17l buckets of coal did the job for a 48-72hrs session . . . .madness but warm and safe(ish)!
Think the Polish lads have been fishing this way for decades . . .!
