    TENT; MIA vs Smith

    G'day guys, so looking at one of these tents. Have only seen the MIA on vids. Is the Smith tent a better option?
    Has anyone got first hand knowledge in either of these tents?
    Thanks

    Yep, definitely check out the Bereg tents Sarvo's got.

    Russian/European made - absolutely bomb proof.

    Been talking to R93 about his one from you, he’s very impressed and happy, very solid. Unlike his old tent that collapsed on us at 2am in a west coast storm.

    I have seen those on previous posts @Sarvo
    Would they handle a snow loading?

    What does the shape remind you of
    Igloo ??
    Prob the oldest accommodations of a man kind on the planet in such climates

    These are made and designed for meters of snow for winter Lake fishing in Siberia at -40c +
    Can snow stay on an Egg :-)
    These have a huge snow skirt to - anyway watch the clips

    Had a look at both at the sika show liked the look of both but the smith seemed a bit more heavy duty, looked really well made. Pretty expensive from memory but quality gear usually is.

    Do the tents come with the stove jack stitched in?
    Your video looks like there is a fireproof liner all the way up the wall behind the chimney, is that standard or did you put it in?

    Cheers
