Robens Chinook Tipi Tent (2019)
Recreate the traditional camping setup with the Robens Chinook Tipi, offering an eight-berth tipi style tent, with a central pole and an A-Frame front door, to create an extension-style front to the tipi. Furthermore, the front door has a mesh secondary door, which acts as a barrier to insects, whilst also adding plenty of ventilation into the tipi. The tipi is exceptionally simple to pitch, with a central pole providing most of the support to the structure. The additional stove port also makes the tipi compatible with a log burner, to increase the warmth inside the tent, and also cook on. The zip-in groundsheet also comes away at the central pole to allow for the log burner to be used safely, whilst the Apex Vent System allows the roof panel to be opened to aid ventilation and comfort.
