This package is a heated backcountry palace. The Eight Person Tipi sleeps eight in the summer or three to four with a stove. Select from our SXL or XL Titanium Wood Stoves, adding comfort, cooking, and the ability to dry wet gear. The included half liner turns half the shelter into a double wall tent, catching any condensation drips and keeping your sleeping area dry. Our hot tent combos can turn miserable weather into an enjoyable trip in the backcountry.
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 11 oz.
- If you prefer total bug protection (spiders, ticks, mosquitoes) then add a nest.
- SXL is 10 oz lighter than the XL.
- XL fire box is 2.25" taller than SXL.

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):
- The 8 Person includes enough SilNet seam sealer to seal the entire tipi.
- 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.
- What about condensation?
- It's single wall, there will be condensation in some conditions. Liners help a lot, as do stoves. Mostly you just have to learn to manage it. Read 5 Ways to Manage Condensation in Seek Outside Tents
- 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.
