WildSide Systems™ LLC features three sizes of lightweight, practical and comfortable TipiTent™ shelters that pack very small compared to their set-up size. TipiTents™ are unique shelters, incorporating true floors, true bug proofing and tremendous adjustable venting--features not found in any other backpackable tipi style shelter. Unlike other similar designs, the TipiTent is not simply a 'glorified tarp'. The 'Tent' in TipiTent is there for a reason. The TipiTent shelters are also designed to use collapsible, lightweight, compact wood stoves for simultaneous shelter heating, drying and cooking, making cold weather camping a whole different experience.
TipiTents, with their interchangeable components, are highly adaptable. These designs allow the use of a bugproof noseeum netting inner wall with floor for greater ventilation, or a bugproof breathable ripstop nylon inner wall with floor, more appropriate for colder and/or windy conditions. The very lightweight outer wall can also be used with no floor or inner wall at all. Or, use a clip in floor only if you would simply like a floor only (not bugproof) with the outer wall. Use what you need for the conditions at hand.
These shelters, with their tremendous adjustable top ventilation--which allows for a constant 'chimney effect' of cooler, drier air drawn in at the perimeter of the tent at ground level and moist, warm interior air out through the large top vents--do not have nearly the condensation issues of other similar shelters. There is no other shelter in this category that incorporates the amount of adjustable ventilation found in TipiTents. The large amount of ventilation is a key to a dryer, more comfortable and usable interior.
