1. 100% Electricity-Free Wood-Fired Sauna Experience

Sweat Tent stands out in the wood-fired sauna market by offering a completely electricity-free wet and dry sauna experience.

In contrast to many popular models today, which often rely on electricity for light or stove functions, Sweat Tent eliminates the need for electrical connections.

Our sauna tent caters to those who prefer the traditional feel of a wood-fired sauna without the extra costs and installation complexities of electrical systems. This means no electrical hookups are necessary for the stove or additional features like lighting, control panels, or a dedicated wi-fi connection. Simply add wood to our powerful and efficient double-wall steel stove and enjoy 200°F+ of rip-roaring heat within 30 minutes—about half the time it takes a wood-fired barrel sauna to reach similar temperatures.

2. True Wood-Fired Sauna Experience at a Fraction of the Cost

Sweat Tent redefines what it means to be affordable in the sauna market, offering the most budget-friendly and accessible wood-fired sauna kit available today.

While other wood-fired sauna kits on the market can cost upwards of $5,000 and often don't include a key element—the sauna stove—for $1,499.00, we ship with everything you need to set up and sweat the day your sauna arrives on your doorstep.

Each order comes with an insulated pop-up sauna tent, a weatherproof roof cover, a stainless steel sauna stove, a rock basket with 20 pounds of sauna rocks, heat-resistant gloves, and other essential sauna items. To make it even more accessible, Sweat Tents are eligible for FSA/HSA, and there are payment plans available for as low as $94/month.

3. Portability and Space-Efficiency: Sauna Anywhere!

If you're facing space constraints or hesitant about installing a large, permanent sauna, SweatTent is the ideal alternative. This portable and space-saving sauna provides a convenient way to achieve your health and wellness goals without requiring a lot of time or resources to get set up.

Lightweight and built for portability, the Sweat Tent weighs only 30 lbs. for the tent and an additional 50 lbs for the stove. It's designed to withstand various climates and is easy to move when needed, contrasting sharply with traditional wood-fired sauna kits that are usually fixed structures.

The "QuickPop" design makes setting up the tent a breeze, taking just three minutes, either alone or with someone's help, which is a significant shift from the lengthy assembly of traditional saunas. Plus, every Sweat Tent comes with a weatherproof sauna roof cover, ensuring your tent remains protected from water and UV damage and enhancing its durability in varying environments.

The adaptability of the Sweat Tent is also a major plus. It can be placed on a range of surfaces, including concrete, tile, dirt, grass, turf, unvarnished wood, or even ice that's at least one foot thick. This makes it an excellent option for people in apartments, condos, or homes and gyms with limited outdoor space. With its compact dimensions of 6ft (L) x 6ft (W) x 7ft (H), and a chimney that extends 2ft above the roof, it provides an efficient sauna experience without taking up too much space.

4. Durable and Safe Materials for a Worry-Free Sweat

At Sweat Tent, our core belief is that everyone should have access to the remarkable health benefits of regular sauna use without compromising on quality or safety. This conviction was the driving force behind our inception, and it continues to guide our commitment to safety and durability.

We rigorously test our sauna tent materials to ensure they are not only lightweight and portable but also sturdy enough to endure diverse weather conditions. The materials for our wood-fired sauna tent are meticulously chosen for their heat resistance and safety.

Our sauna tent is made from Oxford 210D Nylon, designed to withstand temperatures up to 300°F, guaranteeing it won’t melt or emit chemicals at the sauna's highest temperatures. Moreover, the tent windows are crafted from high-temperature-resistant TPU, enhancing the structure's overall integrity and safety.

Extensive testing using the most reliable, USA NIST calibrated equipment has confirmed that our sauna tent is completely safe, with no carbon monoxide (CO) or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) detected, even at high temperatures. This is crucial for peace of mind, especially when the sauna is operating at its peak temperature of around 200°F.

Further enhancing the safety aspect is our proprietary double-walled stainless steel stove. This stove is specially designed with a built-in spark arrestor and a steel-plated chimney vent, reinforcing our dedication to providing a safe sauna experience.
