    Equipment that will accompany me in winter camping: Pomoly HEX Hot Tent. The tent fabric is made of 300D Oxford cloth with a silver coating, so this tent is stronger and warmer than a canvas tent.

      I would suggest that for a given shape and size of tent, the material of a single wall tent makes a negligible difference in the warmth of a tent once the wood stove goes out. In other words, the temperature will match the outside ambient in short order regardless of the material it's made from. How warm a hot tent gets, is more of a function of the amount of the chimney exposed inside the shelter, the volume of air the shelter needs to heat, the size of the wood stove and the quality of the wood you're burning. The drier and denser the better.

      From your other posts on the this site, one could conclude you work for Pomoly or are affiliated with them in some manner.

      Cheers

              I'm almost scared to ask what you are wearing in this photo! The colour does at least match your pulk I suppose!

                LOL, that color coordination was not planned but now that you mention it I suppose that is one thing that outfit have going for it. Orange is not my first choice but it was always on sale, no idea why. My wife likes the color too but that is a whole different conversation.

                If people are interested in the garments themselves the top is a Patagonia R1 Hoody and bottom is a MEC full zip pant similar to the Alpine Ally. I recommend both highly and have gotten many seasons of wear out of each thought pants are suffering greatly from saw nicks so they may be replaced if something goes on sale.

                  Wondered if it was an ex Federal prison uniform you bought at the surplus store.

                    As well as the usual Snowtrekker we also have a lightweight set-up based around an old Golite Shangila 5. I added a short wall and snow skirt to improve room around the perimeter. Stove jack position was dictated by the hole a mouse chewed in the tent one year while the tent was in storage. Undersky and I have used this on a few treks and while it’s more fussy than the Snowtrekker to set up it has been a great tent for lightweight travel. I took these pics last weekend when my wife and I camped with friends at a walk in site in Manitoba.

                    the interior picture shows the absence of a centre pole. Instead we have an A frame rigged across the diagonal, the apex is a 1” pvc elbow. As well as opening up the middle of the tenT it helps support the side walls and makes the tent easier to pitch. I should really get around to making a full four pole set up but this works reasonably well and of course is lighter. I seem to remover someone on winter trekking had the four poles set up but I can’t remember who!

                      Hah, that's a pragmatic solution to a bothersome problem! Thank you, mister mouse!
