Thats great! And it sounds like a blast. But does this friend really know what hes getting into? I assume you have a nice, snug cabin of some sort. Warmer than a tent, certainly.
Cabelas Outfitter Canvas Wall Tent
Outfitter Canvas Wall Tent
Be that as it may, Id certainly take a close look at one of Cabelas fine Outfitter tents. The 1o-foot by 12-foot canvas wall tent ($630; cabelas.com) would be just the ticket for your purposes. Its a ruggedly made tent with weather-impervious canvas over a sturdy aluminum frame. Youll surely want to add the Outfitter Tent Stove Kit ($150), as the tent is designed with a stove in mind. Its really a pretty safe setup.
Cabelas ISQ tent is a little different creature. The ISQ stands for Individual Sleeping Quarters," and this tent has two little interior pods" that are sized to fit a cot. You can add additional pods. The tent itself has a tough polyester shell and steel frame. And you can add a stove kit. Its a more expensive tent that the Outfitters$999 for the basic tent with two pods.
I kind of think the canvas wall-style tents are a better choice because theyd be warmer. On the ISQ tent, the pods stick out from the main tent body. That puts the occupant closer to cold air. In the canvas Outfitter tent, the sleeper shares the main space with the stove, which may be useful. And theres more room to, what, let the sled dogs come in and sleep, too? Why not?
