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.


  • Color
    • Brown - brighter.
    • Green - more muted, blends well.
    • Light penetration is equal.
  • Screens
    • 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.
  • Stove
    • SXL is 10 oz lighter than the XL.
    • XL fire box is 2.25" taller than SXL.
    • Deciding: XL accepts larger wood (less wood prep), and throws more heat, but comes at a 10 oz weight penalty.

    • Second half liner optional.  Line the entire shelter, except the area under the doors.  Adds 16 oz.

Pitch Instructions:

For detailed pitching instructions please read our detailed Pitch Instructions.


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

  • 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.



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.

    8 person tipi bundle

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Dec 2017

    The x-large stove works well with this in cool weather (cool enough there is frost in the morning). I haven't been able to get it to hold fire overnight, but it warms the tent in a few minutes once you start it in the morning (can get it warmed up without getting out of your sleeping bag with some practice). The tent size is good for 3 guys - 4 is workable, but someone ends up sleeping in front of the door. this was my first experience camping with a wood stove - it's great to be able to dry wet gear overnight when the weather closes in for a few days. Get a second liner half to make a full liner (otherwise condensation will soak any gear close to the wall in wet weather). Worked well for a 10 day fall hunt in Alaska.

    First hot tent and I wish I wouldn't have waited to long!!!!

    Posted by Chad on 31st Oct 2017

    I ordered the 8-person tipi with double liners and stove. I had been going back and forth between and tipi and a wall tent.....man am I glad I went with the tipi. Compact, lightweight and easy to set up. First outing was to northern MN to hunt grouse and woodcock. My friends 12 year old son was going to go along and I was hoping this would keep us warm and dry as the weather was calling for snow and temps in the mid 20's. To say it made the camp comfortable is an understatement. We had a nice place to hang out when the weather was really bad, was able to dry clothes out and slept like babies. Great product Seek Outside!!!!

    Great shoulder season light weight option

    Posted by Mark ALbrecht on 24th Sep 2017

    I have a 4 man Kifaru tipi. I have used Megamids and larger and smaller Kifarus. This tipi works great and I love some of the features that are not on the others I have used. The vent works great. The half liner kept the walls for my sleeping area dry. First time out and I had 4 inches of snow over night. The higher stake out points add room and strength. Better interior loops for hanging gear. Stove was as expected but very light weight. Kept us warm and boiled water for coffee and hot cereal every morning - 3 night trip. Great product and it will see almost constant use over the next few months of hunting season and then into ski season. I expect 6-8 trips in the next 2-3 months and so far couldn't ask for more!

    Great backcountry hunting tent

    Posted by Bob on 31st Jul 2017

    Did a fly in backcountry trip with a friend who had the 8 man tipi tent last year. The tent was great for the 4 hunters and gear we had in it. The stove was a life saver as the weather was wet for most of our 10 day trip. I decided to buy the 8 man tipi after returning home from the trip. Highly recommend the tent for anyone hoping to stay warm and dry while travelling in the back country.

    Awesome Tipi

    Posted by Tessa on 26th Jun 2017

    I live out of this thing in SE Wyoming, where the winds regularly blow 50-70mph and even on summer nights it gets down into the 30's. This tipi handles the wind as well as I could hope. The stove is a lifesaver - it heats the tipi up really quickly. At ~3lbs it is the most efficient and economical heating option I've found. Setting up the tipi is pretty easy, even for one person in 55mph winds. Hiking this setup into or out of a sight is not a big deal as the entire system weighs in at 13lbs. Really, I couldn't be more pleased with this investment. I plan to get a small shelter for backcountry next.

    Great product

    Posted by Keith Collins on 9th May 2017

    I have not really had a chance to fully test my tipi, but I did set it up in my backyard and hung out in it during a thunderstorm with 50mph gusts and heavy rain. The tipi held up great. My 5 year old son actually fell asleep listening to the heavy rain coming down.

    The only complaint I have is with the stove pipe. The pipe is very difficult to roll and it is very easy to cut yourself when handling it.

    Seek Outside Comment: The pipe is easy after the first time.

    Once I got all the parts, it was awesome!

    Posted by Joshua Stamper on 6th Apr 2017

    I ordered the 8 man tipi combo with the addition of dual screen doors to keep the MN state bird out during the summer. Primary intention is fall St. Croix river duck hunt/camping trips, winter BWCA ski-pulking, and a warm tent for cold camping and backpacking.
    Tent was delivered in about 2 weeks after ordering. I set it up to seam seal, and could not get the set backs right. reread directions. watch video. and still could not get the setbacks right so the tipi was all saggy and baggy. watch videos some more, and reread tent specs. Then I noticed that the pole was not 102 inches long as indicated by the tent specs. So I was only shipped 4 aluminum pole segments instead of 5 (rolls eyes). I thought I was losing my mind.
    I called Seek Outside and they shipped me a pole. Setup tent in 5 minutes and the setbacks were perfect. Got it seam sealed with 2 tubes of silnet, and was drinking beer in a warm tent in the pouring rain in no time. I will say that the videos that SO puts together are extremely helpful, but I would really make sure that you have at least 2 hours of uninterrupted time to set the tent and assemble the stove the first time. The new damper design is really sweet.
    Overall I am very pleased, and impressed with the craftsmanship. My only gripe was the fact that all the essential parts were not included the first time.

    I had been wanting one of these tents since Iast winter after checking out Dave and Amy Freemans 8 Man setup in the BWCA. Finally pulled the trigger 2 weeks ago. I've had it setup for a week now in my backyard and have spent close to 20 hours inside the tent in sub zero MN temps. Got down to minus 10 this last weekend. My buddy and I were shedding layers once the stove was kicking. Easily 70 plus degrees inside the tent. Excited to use this up in Northern MN in late January :)

    Amazing possibilities with this bomber shelter

    Posted by Mark S on 4th Jan 2016

    I'm blown away with the simplicity and bomber construction! I just set the 8 man teepee and XL wood stove up in my backyard for the first time and was amazed at how easy it was after watching the online instructional videos! But the most incredible thing was how easy it was to heat the thing up! I had semi dry spruce and within 5 minutes after putting a spark to it, it must have been 75F in the shelter even though it was a relatively warm 35F outside! Thanks Seek outdoors for the great product- can't wait to take it in the backcountry!
