Otter or Team Wild

14 posts in this topic

Going to get one or the other this fall, probably a 2 man slight chance of a 3 man. Got a few questions.

Is the Otter worth the extra $$ I know they weigh more and 90% of the time I'm pulling by hand which is why I'll probably end up with a 2 man.

I see the T W has 600 denier vs 900 for Otter how do they compare to the thickness I have on my fish trap pro?

Are the tubs the same or is one heavier duty than the other? Thanks for any and all advise.

I bought the one man team wild and love it they are cheaper the canvas is a little thiner but keeps the wind out and holds the heat in good.I also walk out and pull the house out and pulls very easy and yes I do belive they do use the same sleds as otter.hope this helps.

I believe the only difference is a lighter material on the skin of the Wild.

Same tubs I believe but I could be wrong on that. Check their HSOforum.

The last I looked, the Otter sled is heavier and comes with a 3 year warranty. The Wild sled comes with a one year warranty. There's a slight difference in sled wall height I believe.

I believe you're correct about the sled wall height. If I recall it's lower than what comes with the Otter.

Yes the sled is a little different don't sit on the front if you are in it yourself it will tip over

I have the two man Wild and like the house.

You can pull it by hand, I would recommend you put the Hyfax runners on it as it makes a big differents.

Otter to me is the way to go I have the village big and heavy but lots of room and good heavy canvas keeps it warm! 3rd year for it now and I dont think you could ever break the sled! lol!

The wild has a thinner (but still very good) canvas, 600 VS 900 denier, and a thinner ( but still very good ) sled. The Wild will come with a bench and the Otter will have swivel seats.

They both have square tubing but the Otter will have the new Nylon slides that help from getting any metal on metal contact and the burs that can go along with that at times.

You can see all the details at www.otter.com

I have had 4 Otters and love them. I now have a Ice Camo Lodge and its a great 2 man house with plenty of room.

If you get the Otter make sure you get a sportsmans caddy for it. Best piece of equipment I have gotten for my houses in a long time.

I am thinking of upgrading my otter to a canvas craft. You can get an insulated model on the Otter II sled for less than a comparable otter.

Not sure, but I have seats from my Otter Den. I am looking at getting a roomy 2 man.
