Arctic Oven™ 8 Extreme

Small but ruggedly strong, the Arctic Oven 8 Extreme has a strength to weight ratio that is unmatched.  The steep side walls and 60 square feet of livable space make this model of tent a great option for cold weather camping.  Popular among mushers, pilots and rafters, the Arctic Oven 8 Extreme is easy to pack and even easier to set up!  Short and stout so it can withstand high wind situations without breaking a sweat – it’s time you treat yourself to a tent where weather is no longer a concern!

Break with tradition, start your own… in an Arctic Oven 8 Extreme!

No Need for a Sleeping Bag

“Great trip to Serpentine Hot Springs on Seward Peninsula. Northwest Arctic School District cultural outing. Four of our schools were involved. We spent three nights in our tents and some in the bunkhouse. The Arctic Oven tents performed great. All three nights got below zero and I found myself out of the sleeping bag several times because it was so toasty warm, great product.”

Used on the trail season after season!

“When it comes to staying warm and comfortable in the Alaskan wilderness, Arctic Ovens are second to none. I own three and use them as shelters while out on the trail training for the Yukon Quest and Iditarod Trail sled dog races. The piece of mind to know that I have a warm place to take cover is priceless. When my race season is over, the dogs and I head north to the Arctic and spend a whole month living in Arctic Oven tents, guiding and exploring the wilderness. The variety of Arctic Oven tents available allows me to have a great base camp tent, as well as an excellent tent to travel with. The ease of setup, durability and the superior design allow me to get warm and dry in the worst conditions Alaska can throw at you. I highly recommend these tents for all your winter camping needs.”
