Kifaru tipi

Has anyone used a kifaru tipi ? I am considering buying the 8 man tipi with the medium stove, just wondering about durability and ease of setup and also is it worth the price of 1350.It will be used for hunting trips and general camping.

Re: Kifaru tipi

The kifaru tipi is a light weight, modern version of the Native American tipi. Never laid eyes on one, other than a photo. I have stayed in a Panther Primitives Native American style tipi. It was between Christmas and New Years, in the mid 1980's, in the late PA ML flintlock deer season. We were in the Chestnut Ridge area of Westmoreland County for deer. We had six guys with gear in the 18 foot tipi with the outdoor temperatures of mid to upper 20's in the daylight and mid teens at night. We had about 6 inches of good powdery snow. We used a two foot fire ring with 3" to 8" logs about 2.5' to 3 foot long that we'd feed into the fire to keep us warm. We use the coals to cook during the waking hours. The inside temps were in the mid fifties to mid sixties. We were very comfortable. The canvas tipi had a liner, ozone cover (ceiling). Due to the weather,light of and on light snow, the tipi owner decided to leave it up until the weather was more condusive to tear down and dry it out.
If the price you stated includes the stove and all the neccessities for pitching it and storing it, repare kit etc. It may be worth it; since the cost of man-made materials is higher than canvas. You can go to a site that you can find out about the primitive tipi if interested. or google tipis to get info. Good luck and enjoy, whatever you decide.
