The Six Person hot tent combo allows you to ride out storms in style. Stoves allow you to take the chill off, cook, manage condensation, and dry soggy gear. The included half liner effectively turns half the tipi into a double wall tent, eliminating condensation drips. This combination is our choice for a lightweight & comfortable backcountry camp for up to three people.
All of our gear uses the best fabrics and materials we can source, is made in-house by experts at their craft, and is backed by our outstanding warranty.
Handmade in Grand Junction, CO.
Brown - brighter.
Green - more muted, blends well.
Light penetration is equal.
Sewn in screens keep out flying insects (mosquitoes, flies, yellow jackets) and allow you to vent thru the shelter.
Screens cannot be added after the shelter is built.
Screens add 14 oz.
If you prefer total bug protection (spiders, ticks, mosquitoes) then add a nest.
Large is 5 oz lighter than the SXL.
SXL fire box is 2.25" wider than Large.
Decision: SXL accepts larger wood (less wood prep), and throws more heat, but comes at a 5 oz weight penalty.
Large or SXL Titanium Wood Stove, your choice.
8 feet of roll up stovepipe
Six Person Tipi
Aluminum Pole - 6 sections (6 & 8 poles are the same - flip the adjuster section to shorten or lengthen)
Enough seam sealer to seal the shelter and have some left over.
Liners turn half the shelter into a double wall tent, eliminating condensation drips.
Add a second liner and line the entire shelter, except the area under the doors. Adds 13 oz.
The 6 Person includes enough SilNet seam sealer to seal the entire tipi with a tube left over.
Seal the outside seams, but do it from the inside - pitching the tipi inside out allows you to reach all of the seams.
The easy way to seal is to run a thin bead of sealant along the seam, then press it in with a finger, wiping the excess on a paper towel.
Alternatively, you can use an acid brush from a hardware store to spread the sealant.
INTRO TO HOT TENTS:
The most common questions we get about hot tents are:
How do you not burn the tent down?
The stove jack is a high temp fiberglass material rated to several thousand degrees. The tent material never touches the hot pipe. You can get pinholes from floating embers, but a small dab of silicone seals the pinhole and doesn't hurt the shelter.
How does a floorless shelter work in wet weather?
Really darn well. Don't pitch in a depression obviously, but the ground inside dries out quickly, and it's super convenient to just walk in with muddy shoes (or dogs) and not worry about getting your floor dirty.
It's truly not a concern. We include a peak vent, plus the shelter will draw air through the zipper and under the sod skirt. If you're still concerned, leave a door unzipped 8" or so at the bottom to allow more venting.

The 6 man Tipi was amazing in the back country! I carried it in my pack along with all of my gear, 2000' vertical accent and decent. Three guys and our gear fit in the tipi comfortably, the half liner was very nice to keep us dry in the event someone bumped into the side wall while standing up. We spent two nights in the mountains and carried the tent right to where we shot and Elk. Taking the tent with us saved a lot of back tracking. Because of the rain the biggest problem we had was finding dry wood. I learned to take plenty of good fire starters. Once the fire was started the stove would heat the tent very quickly. Eric

Answer to my tent prayers
This tent bundle is exactly what i have been looking for. I have taken the tent to colorado for 10 day DYI Elk hunt, and 3 Weekend camping trips. At first it was tought to get used to setting it up, and getting the set backs just right. Time and practice helped with this. Took sometime to get used to having no floor but, its way better than sweeping out your floored tent all the time. We use Lowes House wrap ( Tyvek ) to put our pads on, and have no problem with ground moisture. While in Colorado we were in 6 hail storms, and the tent held up very well with no problems, We experianced one leak and it was in a horrible rain storm, and it only leaked at the zipper, maybe the outter flap was not covering it? Love the liner, dont have to worry about accidently touching the walls and getting wet. If i had more than 2 people in the tent i would definatly get the other half of the liner. Me and my buddy spent 10 days in the tent hunting, with all our gear and the stove setup we had plenty of room to spare. I would say comfortably with a stove and all your packs and hunting gear 3 to 4 people would be best. i would prefer 3. The stove is pretty slick, sets up in no time, and is easy to use. Learning curve on setting the dampner just right for maximum burn time on your wood, but once you figure it out, controlling the temp in the tent is a breeze. The SXL stove is a great size, if you get a good bed of coals going you can load it up with a few good sized pieces and set the dampner just right you can get 45 min to an hour burn time easily. Once the fire goes out the temp will drop in minutes. this tent does not hold heat from the stove in for long periods of time. Over all i am so happy with this purchase. expensive yes but definatly worth it. Buy once cry once.Mike

Adirondacks thumbs up
Love, love, love the tipi living. Just returned from eight days in the adirondacks wilderness. Traditional camp was a 12x12 canvas wall tent until this year when I figured we would leave the 75 pounds of canvas, corner poles, center pole and 10 pounds of various lashing cordage back in the gear shed. Everything about your product worked out flawlessly. It was warm and inviting every evening and the large stove was ever ready to fire up and keep the cold at bay. It beat the lake effect winds with ease and shed early season snows and freezing rain without a hitch. The floorless design was great and no more worries about sweeping out pine needles every couple days. Three grown men living in the 6 man was no problem. I found that the large stove was an efficient burner and got about two or more hours out of a stoke of 2 to 3 inch pieces of wood. In temperatures around 18 degrees we were more than warm and a few nights I found myself sleeping on top of my sleeping bag instead of in it.
To sum things up I am ever so happy I did my research and chose the seek outside line of shelter. I will be a return customer without question.
Thanks much and happy trails!
