    These look really nice, and priced right too. A little lighter canvas than traditional.... But could always throw over an extra canvas tarp at a base camp type spot.....

    Exactly...or crank up the stove a bit. I sent them an email to see if they’re good for 4-season camping, but guessing they are if the canvas is only 7oz. Will report back.

    That g stove looks pretty nice albeit small for any tent or teepee with any size. Right now I have a non airtight stove with a 14x16x27” firebox and it will not go more than about 4-5 hrs when stoked full of wood and dampered down I am going to fab a airtight stove for my tent out of a cast off 40 gallon air compressor tank and incorporate some of the features of some factory built stoves I have seen. A big firebox and airtight are what is required as it allows it to be dampered way down so as not to drive you out yet hold enough wood to go all night with a med/low burn to keep the chill off in single digit temps.

    The owner of Snowtrekker replied to my email:
    Actually they do quite well. They are cooler than a lot of nylon tents because of the off white color. Also the fabric is breathable. We have mosquito netted door and window options that provide excellent ventilation. We use our tents year round.

    Definitely now considering options like these...weight and bulk are right, no frame required if needed. Would make great portable hot tents.

    Many wall tents like mine are designed with pass throughs at the eves and ridge so you can cut poles on site and save the weight of the frame if desired.

    I keep their Woobie in my bolt bag. Dig the X-ray, wish they still made the Zulu. Great stuff. Would love to have one of their tipis and stove.

    I have an MSR twin brother that I had a Titanium Goat stove jack panel sewn into. Works great. I used to use a Kni-co Packer Stove in it. I switch over to an SXL titanium break down stove from Seekoutside a couple years ago. Great setup. I really like the Seekoutside Ti stoves. Especially the SXL as it is a good sized fire box, but breaks down ultra small and light weight.
    I also started this thread several years ago to discuss the topic:
    floorless tents and wood stoves, rafters need to get on board - Mountain Buzz

    Some pics and vids of the tent with the larger non-breakdown kni-co packer stove and then with the newer Seekoutside SXL titanium stove:

    Great pictures, beautiful scenery, but I just don’t get the dirt-floor thing.
    Is it a weight-savings for backpacking?
    Regardless, looks like many fine times were had...Well done!

    Pretty simple, if you are using a wood stove its the easiest way to go so you don't have to worry about catching the floor on fire, also you can keep your shoes on inside, which is pretty nice, especially in the winter and when using cots as well. I don't backpack much anymore. Pretty much all boat-in trips.

    Sounds like a great solution for your applications then!
    And again, great pics and fun times.
