easy to load when empty lol.im not a fan of sleds with low sides and don't like the rear door only to have to step over all my gear to get inside ,dont really like the sunroof either.cool idea but sunroof could crack and when  snowing its useless and a good spot for a leak to form.weight wise I like tho.just my worthless opinion.

obviously to get to that low weight they did considerable trade-offs, watch the first video when he steps into the house, look at how flimsy that floor is!  Probably not a big deal if all you do is pull the house out of a truck bed and place it on the ice, but when they show it being towed across the ice, I suspect you'll see the floor wear through pretty quickly..then what do you do?

Another thing is when somebody says it's "Thermal" you really need to pay attention to the Denier count, this is only 600, so it's on par with the cheapest thermal models of the other brands.

Kudos for these guys trying to reduce weight, but i'm sure Otter, Clam and Frabill all want to reduce weight as well, but they won't sacrifice the sled durability to do it...

That thing is a joke in that price range
Some people want light weight and its nice to see someone offering it, but to put it at the range of other name brand that are much better quality i see it being a dud. Now drop it in price a couple hundred and i think it could do well.
Hug a firefighter and feel warm all over.

It's pretty easy to cut weight with a flimsy, low profile sled and no integrated seating.  ::)

Yea its a nice nitch, but then you have to carry chairs and the low sides is a real bummer since i think its how most of us carry our gear out. For the guys with the sled mounted on the actual snowmobile is a great option probably. Its a cool house, just not for me.

too expensive for the quality/features and I would likely slip and die once stepping on that sled lol

The big/tall windows are a nice feature however
