“I spent 14 days in Nunavut, Canada, inside an Arctic Oven. All I can say is -50 degrees, on top of 8 feet of ice with 35 mph straight line winds and zero visibility... no sweat for Arctic Oven tents! It makes heavy and hard-to-handle wall tents a thing of the past. Buy an Arctic Oven tent... you won't regret it.”
— Casey Keefer, Host, Dropped: Project Alaska
“… an archeological survey camp on the southwest end of Umnak Island, Aleutian Islands. Survey lasted 30 days, weather varied from sunny and nice to SE-50 knots with heavy rain and fog. We had an AO10, along with various other small tents. The tent worked well and was very comfortable and dry, which could not be said about some of the other tents used.”
— James Dickson, Archeological Surveyor, Umnak Island, Alaska
