I’ve had mine since last summer but never encountered any extreme weather using it in the field. I set it up in my front yard last week to see how it does. We’ve been having a good mix of rain, snow, and sleet in the Sierras. So far no leaks and the snow was on the side pretty good, but I’ll prob pick up a fly when a light version becomes available, just as an added protection. Sorry for the crappy pics.
I felt the same way it looked cramped. I didnt need the pannier packable version either. After talking with Jonah I ordered the 11x11 about a month ago. I should be seeing it any day. I’ll post pics when I get it.
Cool thread. Does anyone have first hand experience owning or using one of these compared to an Arctic Oven?
I've heard awesome things about them too, with price being often the deterrent, though it's in a similar range as these WR/Snowtrekkers, with the Extreme 10 sounding a bit similar specs to the Bundok. it's a smaller floor footprint but seems like the steep walls go higher so might not be such a big difference in livable space...?
For a goat packer like myself, the 11x11 is probably the sweet spot. The canvass weighs 18.5 so min of a 45lb load with saddle. The 13x13 might be pushing limits for more demanding trips.
I think this tent would be awesome but I would have to sell my eight man Seek tipi to fund it. Hate to do that. Is there any purpose the tipi would have if I got a Wilderness canvas tent, other than just being a little lighter?
I’ve owned a snowtrekker 10x13 outfitter since 2014. Used many times winter camping and for a few elk hunts. It’s a good size for 2 guys on cots, but you could squeeze 3 in a pinch. It will fit 4 on sleeping pads in the winter.
I heat with a four dog titanium stove, the larger of the two. Size wise it’s adequate but burn times are not super long. The stove jack is out the corner, and not ideal. The new stove jack location on the wilderness ridge tents I much prefer.
When I purchased the tent, they had the old style guy line tie outs with the rubber sleeve that the pole slides through and these suck. When there is any moisture from snow or rain the pole sticks to the rubber and makes it hard to get the pole in or out. They have since come out with the plastic guy out clip and they work wonderful. I would highly suggest updating your guy outs if you have an older tent. All new tents come with the new clips.
One other suggestion would be if ordering new, to get the stove jack hole cover as add on. It is nice if not using the stove, to be able to cover that hole up.
Overall I would buy another snowtrekker. The tent and poles weigh around 33 lbs, and the pole bag is around 36” so it transports very easily. The tent will fit in a 27 gal yellow and black Home Depot plastic tote. The four dog stove also fits in the same size tote with room for floor tarp and a few other items. It’s very convenient to throw in the truck for a trip. I do like the revised design of the wilderness ridge tents and would buy one of those models if purchasing another.
