Received my Fatfish 949i from Glen’s on 12/4/13. Glen's service is the best! Shipping was super fast and FREE! Glen’s price on this can’t be beat anywhere online or elsewhere! A co-worker ordered the same shelter about 2 weeks before I did. I had been considering the 949i for quite a while, but problems others were reporting online left me skeptical. My friend’s shelter looked great and had the updated hubs for 2013. Unfortunately, my shelter is not as good as his. 3 of the 4 bottom corners of my shelter are "missing" the 3rd layer of fabric...instead there is only a rubber piece that should be sandwiched between 2 pieces of 300D fabric. The rubber is all torn from being sewn without the fabric covering it. All of the poles on the sides of the shelter are bowed when the shelter is set up. One pole on the roof is the worst as it doesn't seem to want to "pop" tight, and the roof sags here. 3 sides of the shelter sit flat on my basement floor, but one side is bowed up, which makes it look like it would be difficult to "seal" the shelter to the ice because there is very little skirt left sitting on the ground. One of the interior pockets is sewn extremely crooked. I have contacted Eskimo (12/5/13) and have heard nothing. I'll update this review with any changes. (Posted on 12/6/13)

Very good choice for an ice fishing hut Review by Bigjim

Very well thought out ice hut. Window placement are good. Excellent head room. Ice screws are the best. My only complaint is the ropes that come to anchor the hut on the outside are more like light heavy string so I got some heavier rope to use. Either than that, this is a great hut. and the price was about $40.00 cheaper than other comparable brands. Will be buying one for my son. P.S. Insulated hut do two things well. They hold the warmth and don't sweat from the heat inside. (Posted on 1/18/16)

Looks like a quality shanty. Can't wait to get out on the ice. Spend the extra money for the insulated. Better construction. (Posted on 12/14/15)

Fast free shipping and great price. This shanty was very easy to put up, no longer than 5 min. It's very well made and stays warm with the inside insulation. I would promote this item to anyone looking (Posted on 1/23/15)

Great step up from previous shelter Review by Jay

I've been using a QuickFish3 going on 4 years now and decided to upgrade because my shack has been through a lot and it's starting to show. Almost all of the issues I had with the QF3 have been corrected with this 949i. The fabric at the hub ends has been reinforced, the carrying bag is much larger than the actual shack, so it fits in a lot easier, the quality of the carrying bag fabric is still questionable... But everything else seems sturdy and well made.

They've put flaps around the zippers to prevent heat loss and large beads on the outside pull straps so you can grab them with gloves which is nice and there are large pockets on the inside walls to put coats, hats and gloves for when it's warm in the shack.

Also, the ice screws that they send with the shelter are the best I've ever used. Eskimo makes the best shelters at the best prices. I will buy from them again. (Posted on 1/20/15)

This is awesome! 3 minute set up...agreed. 3000 btu coleman heater on 1lb propane can....lasted all day. 18 degrees outside, sitting in my T-shirt inside. Love the velcro strap windows. stopped at Jay's (northern MI) and basspro and better than anything they had on the floor. spend the extra $30 for the insulated version. Extensive internet search, once I knew the make and model I wanted, NO ONE has a better price than Glenn's and free shipping to my door. I never write reviews, but this is so good had to share with the world. I am an automotive engineer with the big 3. held to highest quality standards in the world. Not much impresses me, but this did! (Posted on 1/20/15)
