Arctic Oven™ Igloo

The Arctic Oven tent line just got a little bit cooler!  The Arctic Oven Igloo is the first Arctic Oven tent model to boast a geodesic dome shape, providing ample space (79 sq.  ft.) with a lot less weight (37 lbs).  The geodesic structure is superior in high wind situations because the intersecting poles create triangular sections that distribute the structural stress throughout the tent.  In other words, these tents can take on some major wind storms!

And, at 35% lighter than similar tents of the same size, the Arctic Oven family is excited to welcome pilots, rafters and explorers who have been holding back on owning an Arctic Oven tent due to the weight of other Arctic Oven tent models. 

You will find all of the same materials that make the Arctic Oven tent great in a nice light weight package with the Arctic Oven Igloo!

Product Details

    • Screen window in the back wall
    • Stove jack in fly and body with cover flaps

The Arctic Oven Igloo is REMARKABLE

“Having spent a cumulative total of several months living in various Arctic Oven tents with the Vapex material, I can attest to the fact that even in the wettest environment, I’ve never touched the Vapex and felt wetness of any kind. Even when drying out piles of soaking-wet gear using a propane heater, the liner always feels dry. It’s remarkable. Find the full review here.”

The Portable Palace

“The new Igloo tent has been a dream to stay in for remote winter camping. Minimal travel volume and weight yield roomy comfort when deployed. The geodome design sheds wind effectively and distributes heat efficiently to its usable living space. Setup has been quick, and the propane stove wonderful, using one-third of a 20# tank overnight at 15 degrees above zero. The vestibule is spacious and provided ample protected storage. All these features make the Igloo the perfect solution for any season, but for winter camping by dogsled, snowmachine or bush plane, it is a portable palace.”

Warmer and More Comfortable Than a Cabin

“I wanted to say how impressed we are with the Igloo...what a great tent. Three of us used it on an 8-day (500 mile) snowmobile patrol to the Yukon north slope. It was easy to set up, shed snow and wind very well, and kept us toasty warm in -30C temperatures without having to use much fire wood at all. We spent one night in a cabin, but quickly decided that it was much warmer and more comfortable in the tent and spent most of the remaining nights in the Igloo. We were all warm, and the tent (with a small fire) kept the water in liquid form (our water jug was a solid block of ice when we stayed in the cabin). I'll definitely be recommending these tents to friends and colleagues.”

— Birch Howard, Park Warden, Parks Canada

Igloo has enough space for the four-legged friends too!

“While we can't yet comment on the performance of the Arctic Oven Igloo tent in any crazy winter conditions, we can say: the setup was quick and easy (even with gloves on!); it's spacious interior, similar to other Arctic Ovens, allows ample room for sleeping, eating, drying gear, and a few four-leggers too (we'd say it "sleeps 8"!); the vestibule provides great transition and storage space; and we really like the generous side flaps for easy anchoring in snow. ”
