Mceto 5m diam Pyramid / Tipi Tent


  • 5m diameter tipi tent


  • 10 sided 210T plaid 3000mm PU
  • 5m diam incl. snow skirts (4.7m door to door);
  • 2.4m high;
  • 10 pairs of guy ropes need to be 2.5m long for top ropes and 1.5m long for bottom ropes and then each pair could go to same peg
    • my delivery, whilst you get some guy rope string, you will need to make your own guy ropes up
    • to make it easier to set up buy carabiners for use on each guy rope to attach to tent
  • the 2 tall doors fold back to one side only;
  • a elevated vent above each door
  • stove jack with velcro removable fabric vs fireproof jack near one of the doors
    • fine without an oven as long especially if you use a triple shield chimney section for the stove jack
    • mine is only 1.3m high so you need a half length chimney pipe to make it work with an oven and triple shield
      • Winnerwell Nomad Medium with pipe oven:
        • triple shield on top of pipe oven but shield may be too close to stove and too warm - max. height of shield is 1.38m which is not high enough for safety - ideal stove jack height is 1.1-1.2m
        • triple shield on top of HALF plain section pipe which is on top of pipe oven makes the PERFECT solution
        • triple shield on top of a plain section which is on top of pipe oven - min. height of shield is 1.3m best option but do need tent guyed out well and chimney going through the top part of the stove jack which is closer to 1.4m high - ideal stove jack is at 1.4-1.5m height
        • for extra safety you could use two triple shielded sections which should overcome any issues although the bottom shield may be a bit warm
  • ~1m central radius for head height standing;
  • centre pole is not adjustable height and the top section has a metal part from which you can hang gear
  • 4kg; packs to 56x15cm; opt. mesh inner tents;
  • 2023 upgraded version 3000mm 4kg, brown, green or white $AU328
    • optional inner tents
      • mesh version 1.1kg or 210D PU4000mm Oxford fabric version 1.2kg
      • 3.6m x 1.8m x 1.6m high hanging pentagon with 210D PU4000mm Oxford floor


  • 5m diameter really adds important usable space compared with the OneTigris Rock Fortress teepee style Hot Tent
  • easy and fast to set up
  • light at only 4kg and fairly compact for car camping or even for a group of overnight hikers to share the load
  • no floor so less issues with stove and also makes for faster drying out
  • hook on the centre pole can be used to hand wet clothes, inner tent, or a lantern
  • doors are higher than the OneTigris Rock Fortress teepee style Hot Tent which is nice
  • two levels of guy out points should mean it s very stable and also allows pulling the tent away from the stove.
  • stove jack does not have any roll down material which could contact the chimney as with many other tents - the rain flap is totally removable via velcro
  • can peg out snow skirt


  • does not seem as thick a material as the OneTigris Rock Fortress teepee style Hot Tent
  • centre pole is not height adjustable as it is on the OneTigris Rock Fortress teepee style Hot Tent and is not as strong but this means less weight to carry and it seems adequate
  • stove jack is a bit too low at only 1.3m height for a chimney pipe oven - may need to use a half length pipe to make it work
  • not supplied with pre-prepared guy ropes - only string you need to create the guy ropes from
  • not enough pegs for all the guy ropes that could be needed
