This is an absolute beast of a shelter and we are certainly not suggesting you take it backpacking.
However family campers, bike tourers and bushcraft fans will love this for the copious amount of space for up to 8 people at a very respectable sub 7kg.
Teepee shelters have a character and always raise a conversation wherever they are pitched. Added to which the pitching of this shelter is very quick and simple. Those days of struggling with heavy canvas teepee shelters with everyone watching are over!
The package also includes a clip in flat tent floor, which covers the entire area. This can be unclipped around the door to prevent ingress of mud and debris.
Optional 2 person sleeping nests are available (both winter and summer) and these can be used instead of the floor when required. Either sleeping nest can be dropped out of the way for maximum space during the day.
At over 9 foot tall with a diameter of 15 feet, the space offers full standing headroom for most people and the floor will provide plenty of space for camping cots for several people. There are two doors with mesh netting to help with cool airflow during hot days and bug protection.
For those who wish to use a stove inside the shelter throughout the year you have instant access to the chimney which can be either through the stove jack (provided) or the top flap chimney access point.
Where the stove pipe exits the shelter a flue pipe collar is required to prevent melting of the fabric.
The shelter fabric meets CPAI-84 Fire retardant standard and there are various ventilation flaps around the base to ensure good airflow. However you place a stove inside at your own risk and we would always advise using a carbon monoxide alarm.
This shelter can be used all year round, however it is ideal for winter camping with the retractable snow flaps ideal for heavy rain and snow adventures.
