Pyramid Tents - Any Experiances??
« on: July 10, 2006, 08:07:00 PM »
I have been tossing around the idea of getting a pyramid tent from Panther Primitives, and wanted to get some feedback from some of you who may have one, or have used one. I am really interested in hearing how they hold up in rain and wind compared to a wall tent, and what would be a good size for 2 hunters, gear and maybe at some point, a small stove. If you have one, would you buy another pyramid, or go with a wall tent instead? They offer the canvas in 10.38 oz and 13 oz., is the heavier weight worth the extra $$. Any thoughts, suggestions and input would be greatly appreciated, as well as some pictures if you have any!  Thanks.

I have slept many nights in a pyramid. They are roomy. The 13 oz. holds up well in the rain.They are easier to set up than a wall tent.

I bought a pyramid last year from Spring Valley Lodges and love it!  Mine is 13x13, and is more than roomy enough for two people plus a stove.  I'm sure you could go a little smaller and still be fine, but the extra space sure is nice.  I have yet to have to endure much in the way of nasty weather, but from what I have been told they will hold up fine.
Here is mine set up last summer in Colorado.

Here are a couple pictures of mine. They are very easy to set up and with a stove you can keep them nice and toasty.

Thanks for the info guys! What size is your tent Tony? Do you find the size adequate with the stove inside?

Mine is 14X14 and with a stove you could sleep 3 maybe 4 people. At the last GORH we had it so hot inside, we had to open the door to cool it down before we could sleep.

Tony, to set it up is it just one single center pole and then staked edges?

Art,

  Yes you just stake down the four corners and then raise the center pole. There are more stake loops but if your in a hurry you can stake them later.

Have you looked into the Kifaru tipis?  Traditional in design, but super lightweight and bulletproof. Here's a pic of my 6 man version with stove.
