    Let me explain my point here. You see, the first thing to look for is the tent’s ability to shield you from cold and wind. It’s also a reasonable solution for choosing artic tents for camping for snow and cold with stove jack: the stove will keep you warm, your gear dry, and allow you to cook your meals easier and quicker than over a fire. Check my favorite winter tents  as an option and be ready to spend the best ice fishing ever. Good luck

    Here are some things to look for:

    Aluminum poles, the fewer the better. Some shelter systems have one. Some have four and five poles for two people. HYOH*. Fiberglass poles should be outlawed; they're downright dangerous if compromised. Don't get a tent with fiberglass poles, or a floor made from woven polypropylene. You're looking for coated nylon.
    Seam-sealed coated nylon rain fly and floor. You can do this yourself, but you shouldn't. Trust the pros.
    Below five pounds, packed weight, for a two person tent; three and a half pounds for a solo shelter.
    Side entrance(s). There's no bigger PITA than having to squeeze into the head-end of your tent, trying to get your big-ass boots off, only to knock your sleeping partner in the back of the head with your elbow. Side entries allow you to face away from your partner, and better utilize vestibule space. Oh, that reminds me...
