    I've got one of these. Not for ice fishing, not for growing pot, not for a darkroom, but as an outdoor weatherproof place for fusion splicing fiber optic cables. The windows and door button up good and it would make a decent darkroom. Its pretty well made too.

    Using those grow tents would be a bad idea, they're totally reflective inside. So unless you're only trying to reproduce gray, i would stay out of them.. unless you plan to cover the entire inside with black fabric... that wouldnt work wonders for dust though.

    Are you sure no light comes in it with door and windows shut?

    I would go for something like this instead. OR one made by Eskimo.

    No, they are not.
    I have one and light leaks at the zipper. They are not meant to be light proof. Only light controllable.
    You could black tape the zipper and the occassional pin hole (again, they are not meant to be light proof), but you would still have to deal with the reflective silver inside that is meant to reflect and amplify the light within.

    It seems it would be too hot inside in the summer.

    Wet plate Borut Peterlin has done a handy video for converting an Eskino tent, though it is for collodion use and not conventional BW.

    Ice fishing dingus. Would it be possible to turn it inside out?

    Same for the growing tent with built in vent. Inside out?

    There is lightproof cotton-blend material sold in huge sheets in curtain-material suppliers, it's used for blackout blinds and other times a lightproof curtain is required, and the same shop would probably even sew it up for you too. Wouldn't it be possible to make a simple box of that and suspend it indoors, from hooks or strings or lightstands or something? You could choose whatever size or shape you needed then.
