Modular Outers, Inner Tents and Bathtub Floors
These ultralight tent systems come with two main optional parts, the floorless waterproof stand-alone outer tent (which keeps rain off you) and the bathtub floor inner tent (which keeps mosquitos out and ground water out).
The outer tents can be used as a 6-person floorless teepee. You have the option of adding snow skirts and/or a wood stove jack.
The optional inner has room to 1-4 people of almost any height, with additional internal and vestibule space for gear storage outside of inner tent used for sleeping, and reduces condensation and gives you no-see-um bug protection.
Having a large shelter with plenty of extra room outside of your sleeping area helps you keep your clothes and gear dry and safe during storms which can prove to be lifesaving!

Optional Stove Jack for Wood Heat
A tent wood stove can be installed by choosing the stove jack version and a spark arrestor. This is so a pipe from a wood stove can exit a vent in the livable area, which creates a wood stove tent shelter. The stove jack port is removable and replaceable.
The stove jack is 14" x 10" rectangle shape made of cuttable silicone fiberglass fabric, surrounded by velcro fabric that you can seal when it is not in use so that your tent stays weatherproof, and closable with included rain cover.
