Only the best materials,
only the best construction
Great design, great craftsmanship, and great materials equal great performance in nasty weather
We offer a variety of sizes of tipi tents, pyramid tents, and backpacking tents. Our customers use our gear in very harsh conditions in remote parts of the world, so our focus is on building quality.
Quality has three parts - Design, Craftsmanship, and Materials.
Design goes beyond looks, shape, and function, and encompasses fabric qualities and craftsmanship. Design brings out the strength in fabrics and removes the weakness, and preferably makes it efficient to sew.
Craftsmanship is very important, and we are lucky to make all of our gear in-house, and to have extremely gifted and experienced sewers on staff. We are really good at sewing, and when you see our gear you can tell it just by looking.
Materials dramatically affect a products performance, so we use the best Materials we can source. Our tent fabrics are usually twice as waterproof as lower end tents, and often twice as thick. We don't cut corners on fabrics.
Our camping teepees feature a traditional conical shape and use modern ultralight materials. Due to the conical shape, our teepees handle wind from any direction equally well. These teepee tents offer a tremendous amount of covered space for the weight, and are very easy to set up compared to a traditional canvas wall tent. These tipis withstand high winds very well, and with a little maintenance do very well in the snow as well.
Our pyramid tents feature a square or rectangular shape, with fabric lay, catenary cuts, and seam orientations designed to allow some stretch, but to limit stretch much more than competitors. The result is a pyramid tent as well done as possible. They handle high winds very well with minimal guyouts, and the shapes make them very efficient from a square footage perspective. There is very little unused space in these shelters.
We get a lot of questions about floorless tents....what about bugs, snakes, mud??? Lets start with the reasons that floorless tents are compelling - size to weight ratio, and ease of living. Without a floor you can have a very large shelter at a light weight, which makes for a much more comfortable teepee style tent. It also allows you to have a camping tent with a stove. Floorless tents are also cleaner in bad weather. When it's raining you can walk in with muddy boots and not worry...try doing that with a bathtub floor.
