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..
