What do you get for someone that already has everything, goes on extreme adventures into the backcountry, regardless of the weather? A gift for someone who practically lives outdoors. An apartment in the mountains? Well it may as well be. The Seek Outside 6 Man Tipi Hot Tent is like a portable apartment for your adventures in the woods or car side. Like a Marine, any clime any time. Easy to pitch with one person or a small team the tipi style tent is 14 feet in diameter and standing height in the center and the hot tent combo comes with a wood stove. The tent itself is configurable from the factory with options like a stove jack, screens doors, fabric color, and factory seam sealing.
The titanium backpackers woodstove, slightly larger than a shoebox and all of 35 ounces including chimney and damper assembles in minutes and takes the chill off any mountain morning. It’s surprising how easily you can stoke a fire into a bone warming blaze using only the leaf litter and small sticks around your camp site. We’ve tested the tent in blizzard conditions and evenings going down to -20F and have survived to tell the tale.
