    Default What Poles For An Arctic Oven

    This is a question for the Arctic Oven owners out there.
    I recently purchased an AO10 and I was going to do the pole upgrade but they didnt have any in stock and said they will have some around the end of Aug.
    So having this extra time to think about I'm wondering if the pole upgrade is really needed.
    Is there any one out there who has had issues with the stock poles or wished that they had upgraded to heavy duty set?
    What weather extremes have you been in with the stock poles and how have they held up.
    PM me with any comments if you like .

    The stock poles are as stout as they come.

    I wish my other tents had poles that strong.

    I was also considering the heavier poles and passed. 24 pounds more!
    We have tented on Kodiak with 50-75 mile hour winds and the stock poles held up just fine.

    Thanks for the replies. Im going to go with the original poles and use the hundred the upgrade would have cost towards a vestibule.

    I hated the vestibule! Had it on my 10x10. Worst $200 I ever spent.
    Unless you rig some type of pole in the middle of it the rain and snow will just collect on it untill it caves in. Plus it makes entering and leaving the tent a PITA.
    Son and I both decided it would be nicer just to string a line from tree to tree in front of the tent and hang a tarp over it and keep our outside gear underneath it.
