But some additional work will be required to provide comfort and warmth. It is necessary to lay spruce spruce branches or hay under the bottom and continuously warm house gas stove.

In the process of writing an article about this very breathable tent in the form of a cube from the company Stack, the desire to purchase this tent for yourself became more distinct. Of the minuses here can only bring the weight of the tent when transporting it on a sledge-scraper on their own. All together, in a heap, on such a hiking trip, a lot of weight will be gained. But, if you get to the catchy hole on the “karakat”, “dog” and a snowmobile, then this minus turns into “0” with a lot of pluses. One of these advantages is the ability to get up in the tent in full growth. Three layers protecting from wind and frost are also a clear plus. The reliability of the frame, a good hood, and so on, which is already in the description, are also obvious pluses.
