  • Barebones (brand) Wall Tent??

    I grew up spending my summers in wall tents. When I think of summer, I think of the smell of cured CanVak. Needs less to say, wall tents are heavy, cumbersome, NOT waterproof, tough to secure, lots of bugs, no floor, etc.

    I have been looking for a solid solution for taking my family four-wheeler camping. I wanted it lightweight, breathable, ability to shed snow, have a floor, have a stove, and plenty of room. I stumbled across this, and at first glance, it seems impressive! I'm surprised I haven't seen these in Alaska before.

    Any thoughts?

    Let me know your thoughts!!

    Nice Charlie! Too rich for my budget though. I'll stick with my old canvas wall tent and cut the poles on site.

      A 12' arctic oven with vestibule is a similar size as the tent you linked to, packs smaller , weighs significantly less, has been proven to be up to harsh conditions and snow and is made and sold by a local Alaskan company. I think cost would be similar as well.

        I agree that the Arctic Oven would be a direct competitor, however there's something about the arctic ovens that are less homey and more expedition - if that makes sense.

          I'm a bush teacher and I have desires to buy some land and build a cabin eventually. Before that can happen, I have thought about establishing a basecamp using a wall/canvas tent and spend the summer months working on the land. However, I am clueless. My canvas tent experience was military ones.
