YK woodstove

Ever wondered how to safely make a wood-fire inside your nylon tent? I might have found the solution. With weight of les than 1 kilogram the stainless steel system it can easily be carried in a backpack. It also packs tightly with the Trangia 27. The system uses the solo-stove or something of similar size, which you can buy on the internet. All the smoke will leave the tent throught the pipe, so the tent can be closed completely, providing safe warmth even in - 33 Celcius.


YK 3 ski – poled tent

Evolved from the YK 1. Four - season tent for two persons, with a large roof top that can be opened and closed, making it more comfortable during warm summers. Two ski poles are used as tent poles, with extentions for the additional height, making this tent very lightweight and suitable for taller people as well. The back side uses two little carbon poles giving room for the feet.

 

 


YK 1 ski - poled tent

The original model used during countless shorter and longer trips. Why a T-shaped tent? Because it's lighter then a dome shaped tent, which are MUCH to small for me compaired to their weight. Any tent you're not able sit-up straight is useless during multi-day trips when there is a good chance of rain. The YK1 has the weight of a small tarp, providing much shelter however. You probably guess I tend to camp in a colder climate.
