Tipis are great at shedding wind and water, and unlike tents they offer standing room, which is great for waiting out a storm. Not so great is that they’re usually bulky and heavy as hell. The Kifaru 4 Man Tipi looks mighty sweet because it weighs just 5 pounds 5 ounces. Read more.

Tipis are great at shedding wind and water, and unlike tents, they offer standing room. They're not so great when it comes to weight and packability. 

Which is why the Kifaru 4 Man Tipi looks mighty sweet. This sucker has a footprint of 10.5 by 13 feet, and gives you more than six feet of head room, but it weighs just over five pounds. Most four-person tents are way heavier than that. It measures just 6.5 x 22 inches when packed down, and it’s OK to cook with a stove inside thanks to the vent on top (just no open flames). It's not cheap, but that’s the price you pay for lightweight luxury.
