There is no denying that saunas are great for the overall well-being of a person. A sauna steam bath is a great way to sweat off the stress and feel energized again. This is why the culture of taking a steam bath in a compact wooden room has still survived over the ages ever since its inception in Finland.
The only downside of this Finnish bath is the wooden structure being anchored in one position. SweatTent wanted to change this notion and has introduced a portable sauna that you can take to the wilderness while camping.
Doubling as a pop-up tent, SweatTent sauna was crowdfunded on Indiegogo within three hours. The concept talks about a portable sauna package comprising a tent, stainless steel wood fire stove, a stove exhaust chimney, and temperature control vents. Weighing less than 80 lbs, SweatTent is easy to carry around and even fits inside a camper trailer.
The tent is made of two layers of weatherproof Oxford 210D fabric with a powerful layer of insulation in between. Taking just three minutes to set up, the pop-up tent has a small opening that paves the way inside.
Inside the tent, there is a fire stove that is capable of producing heat up to (200°F+/ 93°C) in less than 30 minutes. It will take a minimum of three fire logs to run the stove. A built-in spark arrestor and steel-plated chimney vent protects your tent from damage in emergency situations.
The steel chimney vents all the smoke outside while the temperature control vents maintain the required temperature inside offering you a dry heat bath. Accommodating three people with ease, the tent also has a bench and a bucket as add-ons.
SweatTent also provides you with a fire poker and glove to handle the ember. If you are intrigued by the concept, the SweatTent is available for purchase at an early-bird price of $1,099 on Indiegogo.
