Gear Loft for Winter Camping Tents

If you use a winter camping tent with an internal frame, you quickly realize that there is no dedicated storage space within your tent. The only options are to place all of your gear within the tent, taking up precious living space or leaving items outside, exposed to the elements.

We have created a simple and effective storage solution: a light weight mesh, clip-on gear loft that can easily be attached to and removed from your existing internal frame system that is completely adjustable.

USA made Mil-Spec nylon webbing is used for its durability, high strength and smooth texture. Canadian made, high performance mesh is rated to 100lbs (45Kg) burst force. We use quick attachment light weight plastic clips that will not scratch or mar your frame. They are rated to -42 Celsius. We use top of the line USA made Mil-Spec heavy duty adjustable ladder locks for increased strength with high release angles to prevent accidental slippage. All seams are sewn 3 times for strength and durability. USA made Velcro is used for our 2 clip, 2 anchor models. This gear loft is designed to last a lifetime.

At a mere 240 grams, you can easily fold the loft flat and stow it on the side of your bag or pack it within your tent. The Gear Loft measures 20 inches wide x 20 inches high.

The gear loft comes standard with 2 clips and 2 Velcro anchors. You can upgrade to a 4-clip system for ease of use and additional weight capacity. Custom sizes are available.

For those looking to hang more gear, we have G-Hook storage line accessories. These lines simply hang off the arms of the Gear Loft, further increasing your storage capacity. They are made from Nylon webbing which has loops sewn into the body so you can easily attach Para cord, carabiners, or other gear. They are adjustable to suit your desired length.

Single Support Winter Camping Pole | Pyramid Tents

Our Single Support Winter Camping Aluminum Poles has been specifically designed for pyramid style winter camping hot tents. The three sectioned, interconnected aluminum pole packs down to 32 inches when collapsed during transport.

These poles have been designed to handle some of the heaviest snow-loads, regardless of tent size. The bottom center pin diameter has been enlarged to spread out the weight even further onto the aluminum base plate (sold separately).

The pole comes standard with a solid plastic sphere that has been CNC machined from a solid piece of plastic. Its purpose is to spread the load evenly onto the pole and to prevent damage to your hot tent. Our poles are anodized using a special high-temperature anodizing process found in the aerospace industry: you won’t have to worry about discolouring the finish of your pole when placed beside your hot stove.

Load-weight capacity is rated to over 300Kg. Heavy duty bungee cord is used for durability. Bungee cord is also made in Canada.

Multiple fine adjustment points at every 1.250 inches on center for a variety of heights, depending on your terrain. Adjustment pin with lanyard is rated to 7,000lbs shear capacity. Comes standard with a transport strap.

Central Tent Pole base sold separately.

Larger pole sizes are available upon request.
