Like a king in a palace

“Jim Shockey has hunted ALL over the world and has slept in many shelters and conditions, but he finally has found the shelter that will keep him warm & dry in all conditions. But, don't take it from us! Hear what Jim Shockey has to say about the Arctic Oven tent!”

— Jim Shockey, Professional Hunter

The best tent we've ever used!

“For 37 days in the snow-covered Yukon, the Arctic Oven kept us warm and dry. It’s tough, lightweight and dependable. By far the best tent we’ve ever used! The Arctic Oven 12 has enough room to sleep four people, with all their gear comfortably. Having the stove inside the tent is a huge benefit during those cold and dreary fall and winter days and the vestibule is the perfect space to leave wet gear or keep wood dry!”

— Chris Keefer, Professional Hunter, Dropped: Project Yukon
