    Pitch Instructions:

    For detailed pitching instructions please read our detailed Pitch Instructions.

    KNOTS:  

    Read Knots You Should Know to learn our favorite ways of rigging cordage to perform tasks.  The most common tasks you'll find are:

    • Putting a Prusik On The Pole to pitch a nest or rig a dryline for hanging gear. 
    • Tying guyline or mainline to a tree or branch. 
    • Connecting line to a guyout. 
    • Tying off to a stake. 

     SEAM SEALING:  

    For detailed instructions on how to seal your Tipi, including detailed photos, read Tipi Seam Sealing Step by Step Guide

    For best results we recommend seam-sealing your tent.  You can do it at home or have us do it for you (adds up to 1 week)(if we seal the shelter it will be shipped without extra tubes of sealant):

    Seam Sealing Service

    • Our Tipis and Backpacking Tents are sent out with enough seam sealer to seal the entire shelter.
    • 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.

     STOVE RECOMMENDATIONS:

    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.
    • What about condensation?
    • What about carbon monoxide?
      • 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.
