Got this for Xmas from my wife as a second shelter for light carry versus my large sled based unit. Great product, the unit goes up pretty easy, though set up in high wind will be a challenge (as with any shelter). Best feature is the ample sized storage / carry bag - you can actually easily fold up the shelter and put it back in the bag, even when it is cold and snowy..

I use this as a winter smoking den on the back deck, to puff away on my pipe during the cold winter months. I have a rug, heater, chair, table and reading lamp inside and the setup works like a champ. The item is well made and performs as advertised. I gave this four stars instead of five for two reasons. First, getting the hut setup was a bit of a struggle. At one point I was sprawled on top of it trying to hold down the sides while I trying to get the roof pulled up (something like that). Maybe my technique was off, maybe two people would have made it a no-brainer. But it didn't come super-easy for just me / myself / and I. Second, the entrance is shaped like a "D". I can see why based on the design, and I can actually enter and exit the hut effectively, but it is a bit awkward each time. For all that, it does what I wanted it to do and if I had to buy again I would buy this hut.

Perfect X-Mas gift from my Daughter. She even gave me a challenge, and I was able to set up in 4 minutes... in my living room!! Out on the ice, set ups easily (just practice before you go out.) moves easily and comes down fast. I also appreciated the provided bag, draw rope and stakes included with the kit.
I was able to set up the house in just a few minutes by myself, just after drilling a hole in 12" of ice.
Another nice feature is the windows (4) of the house can be changed from black to allowing light easily and venting in perfect.

My husband and I purchased this for our sons 25th birthday. And he just loves it! He says the size is just right for him, his wife and their 4 year old. Or him and a couple of friends! It's very durable and well made. The black color also helps to attract the sunshine and keeps it plenty warm inside. When asked if he would recommend this tent to others, his reply was "Oh heck yeah! No question about it!" My husband and I too inspected the tent when it arrived and we too highly recommend this product!! Happy fishing!

This shelter can fit 2 people on buckets comfortably. It is a little tight for fold up chairs and 2 people. The set up is very easy and quick. You just pull at the center of the walls and ceiling and it pops into place. It can be done alone. Packing it up is a bit tricky but can also be done alone after a little practice. The windows are small and velcro to the walls. The visibility is decent, not perfect, but the price is right. If you have a straight line of traps you can keep them in view. If you scatter your traps about the visibility is not ideal for keeping an eye on your flags, This get's you out of the wind and can even be very warm on a sunny day. There is no floor to this unit, so you can just drill a couple of holes and but the entire unit over them. There are flanges on the unit that you can put snow on if there is any to keep the wind out. A heads up, there are pins you screw into the ice to keep the unit in place, the snow on the flanges will not keep the unit in place if there is a strong wind. That can create a very long walk if you don't secure the unit down. A strong wind can come out of know where. This unit was a good buy for me. I am very happy with it after spending years without shelter.

surpasses expectations! we thought because of the material description not having some fancy patent pending like some others are made of that it would be mad out of wind breaker material, it is 100% polyurethane lined and feels like it'll last at least two seasons if not more without a tear or wear. We have used it just once but have 3 kids and they can lean against the inside walls without even stretching the walls, because it is so nice and taught. We will buy Frabill products again. also it shipped well and arrived in a cardboard box clearly labeled what the contents were.

I bought this item and was pleased when it showed up. The instructions stated to "pop" the tent up at least once before you go out. So... Brand new, out of the box, I pulled on one of the sides to "Pop" it out and one of the wall rads shattered and broke. I tried removing the splintered rod and was poked several time and even poked small holes into the tent itself.

I contacted Frabill Customer service, filled out their WEB site report page and explained the situation. The only thing I was asked after submitting this form was how long was the wall rod. I sent them this information and heard absolutely nothing. After a couple of weeks I responded back to the Customer Service email I was sent asking what the status of the request (asked for a new rod) was. No contact from anyone at Frabill again. I contacted the retailer, Red's Gear, and they were a breath of fresh air. They said they would send out another tent or I could return the old one for a full refund.(Thank you Red Gear). Needless to say I sent back the entire tent for a refund. I did not want a Frabill product on my property.
