That picture you posted looks like it was fur on the outside as well as the inside in that picture . The outside tent in his video was a leather tent ..dehaired , reindeer hide .the inner one reindeer hide with the fur left on .

 Yes that is a very good scene from the documentary...thanks for posting that Tomas...🙂

Also its amazing how soft and pliable the outer-walls of their  tent was when they took it down.  It really looked to be soft and it was covered with frost so had to be smoked.
