More information about the different fabrics here.

Peg attachment:

The peg attachments consist in a reinforcement and a strap loop. On this loop, several types of adjusters are available:


  • Normal : 2mm cord adjustable with Lineloc (+12g).

  • Ultra-light (UL)  attachment: 3 loops of 1.5mm cord.

Pegs : 155g

A set of 13 pegs is available : we chose high quality aluminium pegs made in the Netherlands :
  • 7 Rockpin pegs to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 6 UL duraluminium pegs for guylines when the weather turns bad.

Central pole : 205g

Pioulou has been designed to be used with a trekking pole of 130cm in order to minimize weight.

If you do not use trekking poles, an adjustable pole "Mostert" is available. Light, rigid and strong, it will hold against the worst weathers. Parts nest inside each other, making it very compact for carrying (length : 45cm).

Seam sealing :
 You can do it yourself with a silicone sealant : it reduces our manufacturing time and therefore the price.

Custom color :

If you wish an other colour, please tick the "custom colour" option.
