Which is the right tent for you?
All these tents are light, stable in wind, extremely comfortable and let you have an open fire. All you have to do is select the size, price and performance that is right for you. We’re sure you’ll find it within the Tentipi® Adventure range.
Choice is always a balance between performance, features and cost. This guide will help you decide the best balance for you. If you are still unsure, ask one of our re-sellers. They’ll give you expert advice.
Breathable or lightweight fabric?
+ It lets condensation out, so you have a more comfortable atmosphere inside the tent. This is especially valuable during winter time.
+ Better protection against the sun’s UV-rays.
– Strong winds can force small raindrops to penetrate the fabric, (use an inner-tent).
– The impregnation could be ruined by chemicals such as: anti–mosquito preparations, hand–creams or soaps.
+ Makes your Nordic tipi easier to carry.
+ Resists storm–rain better.
– Less comfortable and cosy atmosphere.
Tip: choose cotton/polyester fabric unless you are trekking, when you will be carrying the tent long distances.
How big should it be?
Use our floor plans and images to visualise the space you need. Think how far you must carry the tent and how many people there are to help. Also, a bigger tent is more sensitive to snow and strong winds.
Tip: if you are not limited by weight and weather, think bigger for the extra comfort.
How much should I spend?
Some say Tentipi® Nordic tipis are expensive. But they are so much more than a tent. They are your home in your rucksack, not just a shelter. And, at the end of a long day outdoors, isn’t home comfort worth paying a bit more for?
Our best tents are Safir and Zirkon. Onyx is a more budget-priced model.
They all offer you versatility, safety, comfort and durability in varying degrees.
Tip: if you like both trekking and less energetic activities, and if you can afford it, choose a smaller-size Safir light, plus a bigger Safir cp to cover both needs instead of compromising.
