Product Description

The ICEBOX® igloo construction tool is used for igloo building by creating sequential blocks in place. You set the clamps on the form then fill it while packing. after you have filled it you unclamp it and slide it to the next position. A pole with 8 adjustments, 1 for each layer is used to build igloos with the correct catenary shape and to help support the weight of the snow and form while packing the snow. After finishing 6 rows of the igloo you remove the outside of the form as the wall is now leaning in far enough so the snow can be packed from the outside. The snow only needs to hold its form well enough to stay in place until you start the next block. 8 total rows are built including the final cap.

If you have tried snow camping in a tent and enjoyed it and you want to push the envelope a little further and don't mind putting in some additional time and effort to build an igloo, then this is a fantastic device to help make the process go well.

While this device is not cheap, when you consider the cost of a good four-season tent, it suddenly doesn't seem so expensive. Similarly, it appears somewhat bulky and awkward, but again it is no more cumbersome than a two-person (or larger) four-season tent, and is actually lighter than my four-season tent. Appreciate it for what it is--a device that allows you to leave the heavy, four-season tent behind and build a snow shelter instead.

You will need a minimum of two able-bodied adults to build an igloo with this product. Depending upon snow quality the process may take as little as 90 minutes from start to finish to build an igloo, or several hours to complete it. Plan accordingly and make certain you are prepared to work in the cold for an extended period of time if conditions don't allow a speedy build time. If you go in prepare and in the right mindset this is just part of the adventure and is great fun.

A word of advice: READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FROM START TO FINISH AND UNDERSTAND IT WELL! Also, watch the included DVD and poke around on YouTube to watch this device in action. It will make your first igloo experience go so much better. My buddy and I did the typical foolish male thing and charged in without paying much attention to the manual the first time we built. We made it work, but it slowed us down considerably as we had to keep stopping and reading the instructions to figure out what we were doing at each step of the way. Don't be a dumb guy like we were. Read and understand ahead of time so you can work without interruption and finish things without any complications.

I purchased this for my Scout troop at the recommendation of another Scouter. So far, we have been more than pleased. On each of the winter campouts so far, the troop had made at least one igloo, and the boys have had a great time.

This tool really does work, and (with a bit of instruction) the boys can put together an igloo in about 2 hours.

I even borrowed it myself to build one in our backyard, and my 9 year old daughter slept out it with me.

I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who does winter camping

This was requested by our 39 year old son for Christmas in hopes that he and his 8 year old son could build an igloo together. It worked great, except that after the first 2 rows, an 8 year old isn't strong enough to help and an uncle was enlisted to finish it.

Great tool for making a real igloo with real snow blocks. Use it for making igloos for the kids and on my BWCA winter trips. Even made the Minneapolis Southwest Journal this year:)
