This Eskimo Insulated, round format, pop-up ice fishing shelter is what the doctor ordered for family, friends, fishing, fun – the four F’s of ice fishing. This is a typical Eskimo tent with great design, attention to detail, and quality workmanship. It’s also as roomy as a house! The round design also fights off the wind better than traditional cube shape ice fishing shelters, especially the big ones. To give you an idea about how big this tent is, a 6 x 12 tent (Clam Command Post, Eskimo Quick Fish 6, and several others) all have about 72 square feet of space. This Eskimo 6120i has 8o square feet and being round in shape makes more usable space than tents with four corners, I think anyway.
We’ve been selling Eskimo pop-up shelters from when they had the corner-split door and were the only supplier of ice fishing pop-ups at all. Our first year, they sat around until they were discovered. Then they went crazy in sales and a pile of competitors jumped on the pop-up bandwagon. After all these years, Eskimo is still our very reliable, nicely designed brand. I also have to say that having an insulated pop-up is really, really nice if you have a decent means to haul it. I stuff mine in the cargo sled I pull with my Skidoo. Weight isn’t really an issue. Heck, moving locations on the ice isn’t really an issue. I’ve been fishing in pop-ups forever now and I can break one down and move in mere seconds, only to re-assemble in under 1o minutes at my new fishing spot. I don’t go fishing if I can’t be in a pop-up and the added warmth you get along with the “no drip” comfort in an insulated tent is well worth the extra investment. This particular Eskimo ice shelter is:
- Optimized for maximum fishable area
- Constructed of sturdy UV- and water-resistant Ice
- Tight polyester Hub design makes setup and take-down easy
- Comfortably fits five to seven anglers
The Eskimo FatFish 6120i Six-Sided Ice Shelter provides up to 23% more fishable area than similar-sized shelters on the market. Seven more inches at elbow height give you plenty of room to pull up your catch without jabbing someone in the ribs. Fully insulated with IQ™ insulation to keep you warm out on the ice. With its tight weave and ultrahigh thread count the strong, yet lightweight 300-denier IceTight™ polyester offers wind and waterproof protection. Corners are reinforced with full-length folded tube webbing that eliminates weak stitches and seams, high-impact rubber patches and abrasion-resistant polyethylene-oxford fabric. Durable all-metal ball-and-socket hub design allows you to set up and take down the shelter quickly. 11mm extra-large fiberglass poles and strong ice anchors withstand high winds. Distinctive X-style reflective highlighting for nighttime visibility. Features 10 large removable Velcro® windows, two doors, two gear pockets, four mesh storage pockets and YKK® zippers.
