I am debating a new hub shelter for fishing 4 comfortably. I have it narrowed down to the houses listed. I wish Otter had the longer style hub house. Thoughts on which is better? Not sure how to compare the IQ fabric to the Clam Thermal Top only.

I haven't been in others, but I absolutely love my Eskimo 9416i Fatfish. I can easily set it up myself in minutes and it's very roomy. Stayed very warm too.

We are looking for something like this as well, room for a few people to fish and room to have a few kids with as well. Did you look at the otter xth resort? I haven't been in any personally yet, but was leaning towards the otter. Anybody else have experience with any of these?

I just picked up the Otter XTH Lodge. Compared to the Eskimo FatFish 767i I had, the Otter has higher quality fabric and pole joints and zipper. The Lodge would fish 3 very comfortably and 4 is not out of the question.

A feature I like about the Otter that my Fatfish never had was the Velcro windows that could detach for direct air/sight to outside.

The 9416i also comes with removable velcro windows. I have been extremely happy with mine. My buddy and I camped in it on Leech last year and it was extremely cold the first night with temps reaching -15(not the windchill, the actual air temp) but it stayed fairly comfortable in the Eskimo.

I have the catfish 949i. Plenty of room to fish 3 to 4 people. My buddies and I even spent a few weekends overnight on Red in it last year, nice and warm with a buddy heater. Then again we are college kids who aren't pick about anything, just want fish and have fun.
