1000 d. Cordura Tipi

Post by wyominglostandfound » Thu Nov 04, 2010 10:53 am

these are the first pics. of the tipi and it will be standing tonight. ultimately, it will have sidewalls and sodflaps as well but it can always be reverted to tipi by tucking in the sidewalls... (windy conditions)

i have a twin being cut right now made from brown woodlands camo 1000 d.

this is a pre pic. of the stovejack from the inside and the window. all other pictures will be posted tonight or in the morning.

6 ft center and 13 ft diameter. it has 8 sides. some of the other tipis are 6, 9 and 10 sided and center ranges from 5.5 ft
up to 8 ft depending on the model.

where there's a will there's a way. i just can't understand why wall tent makers haven't started using cordura because the weight is the same as 10 oz. canvas. it seems that the increased mildew resistance would make it worth while not to mention the strength. this will still mildew but it gives you more time to dry it out unlike canvas which needs almost immediate attention.

this tipi wads up to the size of a medium bed pillow and i will post a photo of it packed down once the sidewalls are on. it is really not too bad and is perfect for a BOV or horse packing. backpacking would not be practical at all.

Maybe for a pulk sled but clearly as your stated this isn’t going in a backpack. I noticed your stove jack placement is less central. There are both pros and cons to this. Still can’t get over the idea of a 1000d cordura tipi. I look forward to the field test reports.

Saw this thread, went to your site, and ordered the two-person tarp shelter a couple hours ago. I'll be sure to post up some pictures and comments whenever it gets to me and I finally get a chance to try it out. Great looking products, I'll definitely be following your other efforts with interest.

Thanks in advance for making great products, and being reasonable about pricing.

glad you guys are liking the new fabric. prices will be figured by monday and listed on the website. we will try to keep the prices consistent but i am certain that this tent will cost a bit more than regular ripstop due to added materials cost and the fact that these cordura tents have to have edge binding whereas the ripstop do not. this adds another couple hours to the build as well as more materials to buy.

the base 5 man will come with a stovejack and double doors. custom options are always available at extra cost though.

colors depend on what is available from the supplier but we can get almost any color and camo pattern.

thanks for taking the time to comment folks!

Wyo, I wonder how light proof that 1000d fabric is? Can you see light pass through the fabric at night??
Only 11 lbs? Sounds packable to me.
As always Excellent work!
