SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Trail Tipi 2 has one door and a maximum center height of 4' 5, which is a tiny bit bigger than the average height of the 204 various 2 person tents we have studied. With 38 square feet of room inside, it is a little bit larger than some other 2-person tents, and it should accommodate you and, another camper during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, smaller tents similar to this one can make a nice choice for campers who appreciate spending loads of hours outside their tent getting some air.

Some of the great points about dome tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them simple to carry. In most all instances, tents used for backpacking are of the dome type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very straightforward to set up. In calm weather, you could do without guy lines and stakes, not that this is suggested.

Dome tents are without a doubt the most common of all the other sorts of tents you will find when camping. They tend to do better in the rain than other types, allowing water to easily slide off the slanted walls, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, resulting in the water pooling on the roof. The simplest dome tent will have a square footprint, sloped sides a couple of poles which converge in the middle of the roof. Because of the way they are made, it is usually thought of that they are ideal for up to a maximum of 6 campers.

Down below, you can find an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Gives you somewhere to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  2. Internal storage. It is good to see Alps Mountaineering has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your stuff.
  3. Durable, water-resistant floor. The floor material is Polyester taffeta , which is a substantially thick and high-strength fabric. Meaning the base is not prone to tears and punctures. Also, the material has a 3000 mm waterproofing rating, which is pretty good for most circumstances.
  4. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the entire body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  5. Low price. It is a great buy for a 2 person tipi tent that provides this much room. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $129.99

CONS

  1. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, The floor may be made of Polyester taffeta but it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  2. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures website the last time we checked.

CONCLUSION

4.5 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.5 STARS

Alps Mountaineering's Trail Tipi 2 tent is really good for backpacking. Here are a couple of other points not noted above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: 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, Top loop allows for hanging the tipi instead of using a trekking pole for support and Because the Trail Tipi utilizes your trekking pole, it weighs less than 4 pounds..

With fantastic ratings, and a minimum headroom of 4' and 38 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your own little home away from home. This enables you to spend some delightful time camping. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can look at above.

If you found this website looking for recommendations about this particular tent, our view is, it will make for an awesome buy. If you just happened to land on this website while browsing for a new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this tent before, it is possibly a good idea to look at some more similar tents.

Value for money: When thinking about value for your dollar, this tent is significantly more competitive than the usual cost of all the two hundred and eighty-five, two-person tents we have studied, all alone this does not make it awesome value for money. One should also think about other areas in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we calculate the ratings of an individual tent, we reflect upon plenty of stuff, finding areas where the tent could beat other near-identical tents and where it is not quite as good. On this occasion, with an overall score of 4.5 and the price knowledge above, It is simple enough to spot that with a price of $129.99 The Trail Tipi 2 is a very good deal and incredibly competitively priced when compared with comparable tents.

The ratings show that the quality and dimensions the tent offers were not in any way skimped on to finish up with a price well below the average price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is marked down by 100% from the manufactures MSRP. It could make an awesome choice for most people searching for an appropriate three-season backpacking tent to go camping with, that will serve you well for years to come.
