    I have one of these. Bought it used for $440.

    Kept me warm into single digits and 12+ inches of snow on my elk hunt late last year. I did have a Mr. Buddy heater.

    The OP said he was looking for the best outfitter grade winter tents not the cheapest way to get by. If you come to alaska and look at tents trappers spend their winter nights in and late season guides use for their hunters you wont find many cheap tents. You will find predominatly arctic ovens and a few others. When your life is on the line and you cant just walk back to your truck if you get cold the best is more than worth it!

ID:	1801378 A T.P. 15ft and larger can have fire pit in side. The sides of the T.P. reflect the heat back down to keep you warm and unlike all other tents out there, this design has been used successfully for many hundreds of years in the lower 48 not in Alaska but I hear that the Igloo works well up there.

    The way I see it. Unless you have a heat source it's gonna be the exact same temp inside the fancy tent as it will be out side. Paying 1k for a wind break...

    About the only igloos you will find in any gold bearing area of alaska are in movies made by folks who have never been there�� But I do love a tipi! Very efficient design.

    Thanks for all the help with tents. Yes, we still will most likely buy one for early season testing because we'll never get an RV up to the mine that early. Five miles of bad road.
