I'm posting here regarding hot tents.

Points I'd like to make

1. Onetigris hot tents don't often come with stove jack can I ask why?

2. Most of the hot tents dont come with snow skirts as I genuinely feel you would loose a fair bit heat and more than likely to cause drafts if on floor or ground.

Do Ontegris plan on changing the designs of some tents where you would get a stove jack and snow skirts I feel it would be a much better selling point.

Thank you Bobby

I would second the snow skirt and stove jack as optional extras, although I find heat retention is not an issue.

I use my backpack as a draft protector if the wind is to my back but I generally try and orientate my feet to the wind. When heavy snow has fallen it naturally creates a draft barrier around the lower edge and I actually dug a small tunnel in the snow to allow extra ventilation and better drafting for my stove.

In the past 10 days we've had more than one night below -10°c and with a fast fold ti box stove the tent has provided adequate warmth and shelter.

My only wish is that there was a larger option for the Smoky Hut. The weight to space ratio would allow the possibility of a larger, much more usable space for longer expeditions. There is existing products on the market of similar design and materials to the Smoky Hut that reach upto 16 person capacity. It's something I'm even considering making myself when time allows.

So far, great product, great quality, and a very economical price point.

One you could stand up in would definitely be ideal.

Yurts are a pain in the a$$ to set up..lol.. more of a range tent, cowboy tipi id say.. when I was working with some canvas companies, the tents were great but they were over a thousand dollars and were 80 pounds. Definitely not hiking one in.lol..

The product exists on the market in exactly the same design and materials as the Smoky Hut. I wouldn't want to paste links or images here as I'm not sure that's appropriate for me to do so.

Stay warm and stay safe!

I am looking at the new version of the Iron Wall. I need a tent for myself, my gear, and my stove. We have pretty spectacular weather here on the island where I live; heavy winds and rain. I would be making canoe trips to the many islands in and around where I live so not too concerned about weight. I spend weekends on trips so would like to increase my comfort. My biggest concern in reading is that I am 6'5" 230lbs and worried I will not have enough room to be comfortable. I have read reviews and watched videos but until I see one or specifically hear from someone of similar size I am hesitant to pull the trigger. I also hammock camp and am very satisfied with my OneTigris Bulwark tarp and OneTigris Hammock Underblanket for my hammock. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I am 6 foot 220.. I have enough room with my dog and gear in the inner mesh area.. the inner is 7 foot what might happen is your feet might be pushing on the screen a bit but that would all depend on the sleeping pad you use... hope that helps..
