Dynamic Conical Shape
The cone shape of the Teepee, widely embraced by Native Americans of the Great Plains, sheds wind, rain, and snow better than any other tent shape. The single center pole provides unrivaled tensile strength that extends all the way to the ground. A well-pitched Teepee can withstand gale force winds and driving snow!
Need some extra breeze in the tent for those hot summer days? The Teepee's guy line system is especially designed to cinch up and provide extra airflow! Simply unzip the floor, release the canvas from the stakes, and pull the guy lines tight to create a ‘floating’ Teepee for maximum ventilation.
Our Ultimate groundsheets are durable, thermally welded, 540g/m² ripstop PVC. Completely water and vapor impenetrable, the ‘bathtub style’ floor rises 10cm high to keep you dry even in standing water. Using a heavy duty size 10 zipper to attach the canvas to the groundsheet, you can unzip the floor to cinch up the canvas walls for maximum ventilation, or remove the groundsheet entirely for transport, storage, cleaning, or to enjoy the grass or sand beneath your feet.
Spring Loaded Poles
Our durable nickel plated steel poles have internal spring loaded wires that guide the pole sections together for quick and easy assembly.
Durable Guy Lines and Tensioners
For quick pitching in mild weather the Teepee can stand just fine without guy lines. When the wind howls, the snow falls, or if your camping out for a long time, guy lines are recommended. Our Ultimate series comes with 3mm guy ropes that will need to be tied on before your first pitch. Plastic tensioners prevent edges from cutting into the guy lines and prolong the life of your tent.
Steel Stakes and Pegs
The Teepee has three sets of stakes: one set each for the groundsheet, canvas, and guy lines. The Teepee stakes are designed for easy insertion and removal from average earth, like grass or forest floor. For staking to particularly hard or rocky soil, D60 nails are cheap, easily sourced, and can be placed and removed with a standard claw hammer.
Our 320g/m² army duck canvas on the is the perfect balance of performance and breathability. Our proprietary treatment enhances the natural water resistance of canvas, along with a light UV and mold resistance. The Ultimate is ideal for casual camping in mild to moderate environments for three season use. Repairable and retreatable, a properly maintained Ultimate can last for years and years.
Cotton canvas provides a natural waterproofing and breathability. Cotton fibers swell when damp, the tight weave prevents rain from penetrating and the surface tension of moisture on the outside combined with the angle of the canopy allows water to run off. Moisture held in the air on the inside is still able to escape directly through the fabric, keeping internal humidity low and mitigating condensation.
Our canvas is exclusively 100% cotton. Cotton is made from the seed hair of this hardy and drought tolerant plant. Sustainable, renewable, and one of the most biodegradable fabrics on earth. Our canvas is a soft, natural, earthy beige that glows inside and out with natural or artificial light. Glamping Emporium is the only tent manufacture to carry the official Seal of Cotton®.
The Teepee is compatible with any of our tent stoves. The Frontier Portable Stove as an optional Teepee Sleeve specifically designed for top exiting the flu pipe. The Orland Stoves can be exited by outfitting the Teepee with our modular stove jack system. Not for use with open fire pits.
