Mountain Tipi

Originally designed 35+ years ago, the Mountain Tipi combines old school camping techniques with 2019 technology. For more rogue adventurers, go with a fast-fly set-up for a roomy sleep at less than 4 lbs. Add in the included bug nest, or pack the full set-up and make your Tipi the communal hangout for your camp crew.

In the 1980s, the Mountain Tipi was the backcountry home for hunters and backpackers in need of a roomy backcountry basecamp. Today, the Mountain Tipi returns with a modern twist. With multiple set-up methods (stand-alone tipi, tipi with bug nest, stand-alone nest, and fast fly), the tipi is as much a home for lightweight backpackers as it is for camp crews looking to sit out the rain in comfort. Built with No-See-Um Mesh, the nest maximizes the view and breathability while keeping the bugs at bay. With a bathtub floor construction, taped floor seams, and best-in-class waterproofing on the fly, keep yourself and your gear dry regardless of the weather. Pull the guy lines tight and gather round the center pole to wait out the storm, crack open a cold one, and tell your best dad jokes. Accommodates seated groups of one to six (two-person sleeping layout). For backpackers, just pack the fly and pole for a spacious sleep at less than 4 lbs. All Mountainsmith products come with the Forged for Life Guarantee, the official Mountainsmith lifetime warranty.
