More detailed product description
The sauna has always been a central and valued part of Finnish life, a place of birth, death, life and celebration. The ancient Finnish word “hiisi” means a sacred place for sacrifice or power – the perfect last name for our family of sauna tents!
Hiisi 2 is practically an updated version of older Savotta Hikimaja sauna tent. The basic structure is a sloping square box without a central slot. The corner sticks are placed in the alleys outside the corners of the tent fabric, making the inside of the tent cleaner. The roof and walls are made of fire-resistant fabrics for safety reasons, these are still not fireproof, ie sparks and flames can burn holes in the tent, so be careful.
The interior is large enough to fit one two person bench, two persons, and the stove. The stove is placed in the far right corner, as viewed from the entrance. The bench is placed on left hand wall, beneath the window. The window along the top edge of the bench wall provides some light and a chance to peek outside. The entrance is a simple zippered slit. A length of cord is attached to the ceiling seam of the back wall, this is an attachment point for a sauna thermometer to help you keep track of the temperature and not overheat the tent.
The tent, poles and stakes pack neatly into a carry bag for transport. Shoulder straps allow backpack like carry freeing up your hands for stoves or other accessories.
- The material of the tent window is as non-toxic as possible, and it has to meet extremely tough requirements for use both in extreme cold and hot temperatures.
- As a side effect of this the material is also very sensitive to pigments.
- Even the window of a new tent may have color spots or stripes absorbed from the tent wall fabric during storage and transportation.
- This is not dangerous at all and is not a warranty issue.
