One of the biggest benefits of using a teepee tent system, is that it is fully customizable. Most teepee tent designs come in two pieces, an inner tent and outer tent. This allows for a greater amount of protection to get out of the weather. You can have half of the tipi for a sleeping area and the other to get out the weather and gear storage, with the second half. This makes teepees the ultimate tent system for bad weather. Let’s take a look at some options for customizations.
Half-Hex Solo Inner Tent
The Half-Hex Solo Inner Tent is a very versatile piece of outdoor gear. It was designed for the Hexpeak teepee tent line, but will fit with other tent manufacturers. An important thing to note is the length, height and width of the inside space, to be sure that the inner tent will fit under the outer tent. The Hexpeak is not a perfect rectangle shape, but it is possible to alter the 5th corner by tucking the inner tent to fit that shape.
Secondly, in most cases a solo inner tent fits on one side of the center pole. That would mean that only half of the tent is usable to construct an inner tent. Some smaller shelters have limited space for this. However, it is possible to fully set up the tent, then extend the center pole and move it to the side. This will give you more space to put an larger inner tent.
Here are some tent manufactures that are compatible with the Hexpeak Solo Inner Tent.

Two Person Inner Tents
The Rect-mid 2 Person Pyramid Inner Tent is a great solution to sleep two people under a teepee. It was designed for the Minipeak pyramid tent, but will fit with other tent manufacturers. An important thing to note is the length, height and width of the inside space, to be sure that the inner tent will fit under the outer tent. The Minipeak is a perfect rectangle shape to fit under pyramid tents.
Secondly, in most cases this double inner tent is constructed by putting the center pole inside and then under the peak of the tent; creating the height. You must use an inner tent with the same height as the outer tent, for a 2 person shelter.
Using a 4 person teepee tent gives you much more flexibility. The 2 person inner tent fits on one side of the center pole. Making half of the shelter a sleepable space. The inner tent peak will be slightly tilted (leaned) to the side towards the center pole. Again, for smaller shaped shelters it is possible to fully set up the tent, then extend the center pole and move it to the side. This will give you more space to put an larger inner tent.

Trouble Clipping an Inner Inside the Tent?
You must secure inner tent to the inside the peak of the outer tent, this gives you the height of the sleeping area. Two variations of this is clipping inside the tent or using a center pole inside and under the inner tent. Some tents do not come with something to clip into. An easy solution to this problem, is put a small stuff sack over the center pole and then you can clip the inter tent into that. Building the teepee with a trekking pole?
