ALPS Mountaineering Trail Tipi
Trekking pole tent
Saving weight is one of the biggest factors for choosing gear when going backpacking. Because the Trail Tipi utilizes your trekking pole, it weighs less than 4 pounds. The Tipi design has three closable vents near the top and a 360°vent on the bottom, that can be adjusted to increase or decrease air flow by the two-point tensioning system for each stake. The Trail Tipi can be set up quickly by staking out the corners and adjusting a trekking pole inside, or alternatively you can hang the Tipi by the top loop to create more internal room. The 38 ft² tent and 12 ft² vestibule provide a spacious two-person tent with room for all of your gear or a backpacking companion. Trekking pole is not included.

Great tent!

I've tested this tent a few times in various conditions and it's proven to be a excellent product for the price. Took it to different places around Alaska and has held up to the rain, winds and abuse of the rough terrain here. Haven't used it in any snow yet but will definitely try it out when the snow hits!

Very comfortable and unique

great tent! After it’s quick set up you’ve got a stable, comfortable shelter! Only thing I’d change is making a footprint to preserve the floor seeing as ALPS doesn’t make one for this tent (that I’ve been able to find at least) Other than that I really like this tent, over night I developed a rather mild condensation on the Very peak of the tipi but nothing that effected my nights sleep! I would absolutely recommend this to other backpackers!

Great Option

This tent was up for an entire week. During that week we had a really diverse weather conditions to include windy thunders storms. This tent stood up to every weather condition. The only thing I recommend is to get a foot print. I’m really considering getting another one.
