 Post subject: Kifaru 4 man tipi
PostPosted: Fri Jan 12, 2007 5:58 pm 
Long ago, there was a topic about single wall tents, i mentioned the Kifaru tipis back then.

In the meantime, my 4 man tipi has arrived, i ordered a complete kit with snow pins and a small stove.

Last week, my friends and hiking partners Rob & Tina went into the mointains for the first winter camping trip.

The tipi is great stuff, very light and very easy to pitch. The stove assembles in minutes, only the stove pipe gave us a hard nut to crack with the cold fingers. But that was forgotten as soon as we had a fire roaring!

Just as we where comfortable in the tipi, a blizzard hit us with full force and dumped allmost half a meter snow on us during the nite.

Check out the full story here:

http://forums.kifaru.net/ubbthreads.php ... #Post97112

The only downside as far as i could see was the condensation, bad when the gusting wind hit the tent walls and it started allmost to rain inside the tipi. But that can be helped with a liner, which i have allready ordered.

Here is the link to the tipis:

Cant wait for the first kayak trip with the tipi!

h :wink:

servus,

Willi

@ Nohoval:

Here is a photo of the packed tipi, the big brown bag is the tipi, the small brown bag contains the pole, the white bag the pegs and the blue the mosquito net

This is the complete stove, you can see the dimensions on the 1 liter Sigg bottle.

@ Christov:

The tipi as mosquito nettings on both doors, but i am using a pyramide shaped mosquito net with a ground sheet sewn to it (coleman) to keep the nasty gritters at bay.


@ Christjrn:

When i am travelling ultalight, i am also using a tarp ( from MEC, Canada) with a bivy bag (Tilak) worked out very well several times on the Westcoast Trail and on folding kayak trips in Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds.

Thank you very much for your comments, guys,

:wink:

Willi

Paul:

I have seen a trip report on a kayak trip in Greenland, the kayakers camped in tentipis, what i could gather from their website, the basic idea is the same, very good tents with stoves, lots of different tipis in different fabrics are avaliable.

To me - as a minimalist kayaker and hiker - Kifaru tipis seemed to be the ideal choice. I had the feeling, the Kifaru stuff packs smaller and is less heavy and bulky.

But i would be very interested to see one and check out the differents between the two brands.

Nohoval:

Usually, there is a 6 to 8 weeks wait after you order, Kifaru makes their stuff only on demand. Beware, once you got bitten by the Kifaru bug, your creditcard has to be hidden really well!

Chrstjrn:

I have a hooped bivy tent from the czech company Tilak, 7 years old, but never let me down.

hi george,

it is studd islet in the deer group in barkley sound, westcoast vancouver island, b.c canada.

my favorite camp so far, very safe place well above the high tide line, but dont go there on the weekend!

to get to studd, you can catch the steamer from port alberni to bamfield and paddle over, the deer group is a great place to kayak, not nearly as crowded as the near by broken group island.

hopt this helps,

servus
