About Luxe Tipis, Hot Tents and Tarps
Our lightweight shelters are for wilderness backpacking, bushcraft, hunting and general camping; just to name a few. What adventure dreams do you have? What sets our shelters apart from the rest, is the ability to handle bad conditions. It is very comforting to know that you can hunker down inside, to wait out a storm. Our shelters are built tough to handle year-round bad weather, while you sleep cozy inside.
All of our shelters provide excellent headroom and lots of space inside. We do not sacrifice floor space to make our weight specifications look smaller. Our shelters our built for extra room, over other tents on the market. It is very luxurious to have extra space inside to spread out. We find this is a must for sleeping in a storm or camping with a group. Additionally, most of our shelters will sleep someone over 6 feet tall comfortably.
For additional security, we offer inner tents with bug-netting and waterproof bathtub floors that give you added comfort. Having that extra protection can make all the difference for a more enjoyable night in the woods. Using an inner tent transforms our tents and tarp into a double walled shelter. All of our shelters can be used with or without an inner tent.
We offer high quality products at direct-to-customer prices that are unbeatable. In-stock shelters usually ship same or next business day. We pride ourselves in great customer service and prompt shipping.

Detailing the Differences Between Shelters
Our shelters are waterproof and have extra guyline loops for camping in storms. All shelters have vents on the peak, to allow for additional airflow. The bottom edge of the shelters can be adjusted to various heights, by simply adjusting the length of the pole or by moving the tent stakes closer to the anchor point. Our floorless outer tent flys have zipper doors to making entering and exiting easier, and to provide optional additional venting. Some tents have a single or double door system. Having a double door makes it easier to climb in and out of the tent, if you are camping with a partner.
The Hexpeak, Minipeak, Hexpeak XL, Megahorn and Octopeak are similar in a lot of ways. Height, shape and floorspace are the biggest variables. All are equally quick and easy to set-up. All tipi shelters are compatible with tent wood stoves. Having extra space is best, but with a larger tent you do add additional bulk and weight inside your backpack; which is important if you have to carry the teepee tent on your back for great distances. The larger floor space comes in real handy in a storm!

The Batwing Camping Tarp is a great tool for groups and providing refuge from harsh rain or sun. It has a huge coverage to shelter you from the elements. You can sleep under this tarp or just use it as an additional communal area. The tarp will sleep up to 7 people comfortably, when using it as a minimalist shelter. This tarp can also be put over a picnic table area on a hot and sunny day. The Batwing has an extra UV coating on the underside, to provide additional shade. Some choose to put this huge tarp over their tent, to provide extra protection from the rain and not have to open and close their shelter door exposed to the elements. Think of it as an extra awning, like on a camper.
