The secret to keeping the human body comfortable in cold weather? Keeping it dry. Enter the canvas-walled tent. Made from an environmentally sustainable fabric that breathes, such tents are ideal winter shelter. If you’re harboring doubts, that’s because canvas tents have traditionally been enormously heavy and difficult to pack down to anything approaching a manageable size. Wes Siler walks you through a product that he thinks solves those issues: the 26-pound Snowtrekker Basecamp ($1,520).
