Good afternoon.

I have both the White and Coyote Brown versions. Love them. But, one huge flaw. Limited options for “ Bug Seasons”.
Yes, it does offer a “2P inner”, but that completely eliviates the use of the stove jack “ Hot tent” functionality. Which quite honestly, is it’s best appeal. ( Selling feature).

This tent would absolutely shine, if it had the option to purchase a 1-1.5 person inner tent, such as with the Iron Wall Tent.

Of all my friends that are interested in this tent, they all complain about this particular issue and end up buying an option from Luxe Outdoors, such as the HexPeak or Mini Peak XL. I ask them why not go with the Iron Wall or the Wild Haven?

Their responses:

Wild Haven-
The stove jack is right above the door. Pretty much forces buyers to purchase extra ($69) accessory pipes to add onto GStove or WinnerWell stoves to protect tent material.

Iron Wall - 2 Issues
1. Single door entry, people love the double door feature of the Smokey Hut.

2. Someone wasn’t thinking clearly. Lol. The zipper for the Inner tent entry is on the right side, same as the stove jack. ( Should either have full zip / unzip, or Left side entry.

*** Please consider offering a 1-1.5 person inner option ***
$45-$50... Either full zip, or opposite side of stove jack.

Your thoughts?

Warmest regards

Totally agree with you. I submitted your suggestions to our R&D. They will consider about it.

This one is sold out already and the designer has changed it a lot and now it's for wholesale only.

Iron Wall - 2 Issues
1. Single door entry, people love the double door feature of the Smokey Hut.

2. Someone wasn’t thinking clearly. Lol. The zipper for the Inner tent entry is on the right side, same as the stove jack. ( Should either have full zip / unzip, or Left side entry.
This point has been fixed already. It's full zip and it‘s like ⊥.
