The version of the MB-10 I ordered from Larha Outdoor (Mobiba.ca) is the two-window version, called the Aquarium/Aqua-2 in Europe. This model is not meant for a hot sauna in a Siberian winter because the two windows loose too much heat, but in my part of the world (Vancouver Canada) you almost never worry about keeping beer on the balcony in the winter so it should be fine. The first really remarkable thing about the tent is the complete lack of nasty plastic/chemical smell when you open the bag for the first time. It was quite shocking. Oxford polyester is really nice. I had no qualms about heating this up and getting inside. I don't like to throw the term around, but the construction of the tent is flawless. The stitching tracks absolutely true. Everything that should be flat is flat. Everything curved is mathematically curved. Not a single piece of loose flashing or threads anywhere. One-person assembly of the tent in an average living room is not too hard, so outside, with more room it would be easy. It has a cross-tube design with full-zipper channels. The tubing is some super high-modulus alloy that's light, very, very flexible, yet much stiffer that fiberglass or protrude carbon. It's advertised as a 3-person tent on Mobiba.ca and a 4-person in some other countries. Both are correct. Three total strangers could enjoy sitting in the sauna maintaining proper 'Canadian-space' from each other. In a less uptight situation, four is reasonable.
Not wanting to wait for the rain to stop to test it out, I assembled the tent inside and heated it with a small Sauna King electric heater running at 4kw. Probably a quarter of what the actual wood stove would do. With the curtains velcroed down, the tent got from 23C to 100C (dry) with about 1 hour of warm up. Obviously the wood stove would get it up to temperature much faster.
There are some conveniences in life that you really didn't think about until you've tried them, and then afterwards couldn't imagining living without them. Intermittent wipers and backup cameras in cars for example. In the case of the MB-10 Aqua model it is the window(s) and the door. The huge beautiful window(s) make the tent seem much bigger than reality. It's kind of Tardis-like. The door really is a HUGE feature. To enter, pull open door with only ONE hand needed, step in, let door close, relax. If you want out, then out you go - NO hands needed actually. Bash/walk out, no worries, no hassles. The door will probably close after you. A zipper just does not cut it compared to this in terms of convenience and safety.
Despite a labour disruption at the post office, Larha Outdoor (Mobiba.ca) was able to get everything to me in about 3 weeks. No COD charges when it arrived for duty, brokerage, sales taxes, etc. Hopefully when it stops raining I can try the stove, water tank, and the second layer / room attachment out. So far I am extremely happy with the quality of products and service from Larha/Mobiba.

I received your (MB-22) tent this weekend, which came a lot faster than I was expecting so thank you. I set it up on our terrace and it's a lot of fun, especially when there some snow outside so we can roll in the snow and jump right in to the sauna. Only problem is I can't get rid of my guests now, everyone wants to use this thing.

I used a tent sauna on the riverbank!
When burning a lot of firewood, it became very hot and pleasant.
When the fire was extinguished, the stove quickly cooled down, and the withdrawal was also easy.

Last year I purchased a 2-3 person tent sauna from you for my husband. Your service was exceptional and he still LOVES his surprise Christmas gift from last year. It is holding up to very regular use really, really well. Very impressive.
I specifically bought the model I did so I could purchase the add on room/cover this year for him for Christmas.
Thank you for supplying such a great product and for such exceptional service.

I came accross your company after watching an episode of Dragons Den on Netflix. I thought it was a wicked idea and ordered the MB-22 off your site. It arrived within 2 weeks as you mentioned and I've been using it about once a week and all my friends are loving it too.

I purchased your MB-10 tent sauna as a gift for a good, Finnish friend of mine and she loved it. Thanks for the quick turnaround time.

The russian mobile sauna Mobiba is great! Me and my husband really loved it! He has been using it for two years non stop :) I will send you photos with Mobiba soon and leave a brief testimonials as well. Also my husband would love to put a few words in it too. He is a surfer and every time he goes to the beach in winter he goes with the sauna and everybody loves it! He recommended it to many his surf bodies and they will probably contact with you soon ;)

It's (MB-10) working great! I'm getting it set up again today - I had it set up for a couple weeks and then took it down when I was on travel. Many friends have enjoyed it as well, so I will take some photos once I have the bench built for it and some friends over using it too.

We are really enjoying the sauna, as well as the benches we purchased from you. The stove is tremendous. We can easily heat the sauna to 80-85 degrees Celsius.
We set it up easily in 15-20 minutes and even leave it up for several days, then take it down in only ten minutes or so.
