Versions :

You can choose between three versions : "UL", "N" and "R". All have the same dimensions, but different fabrics and zippers are used.

  • "Aston UL" is the ultralight version, when each gram is important : handle with care ! Weight between 0.9 and 1.4kg
  • "Aston N" is the normal version, for hikers and travelers. A good choice for most. Weight between 1.2 and 1.6kg
  • "Aston R" is the reinforced version, for long term travelers or expeditions. Weight between 1.5 and 2.0kg

See Specifications tab for more informations.

Pegs : 180g

A set of 15 pegs is available : we chose high quality aluminium pegs made in the Netherlands :
  • 8 Rockpin pegs to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 7 UL duraluminium pegs for guylines when the weather turns bad.

Central pole : 300g

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).

You can also use your own trekking poles as pole and thus limit the carried weight. They can be tied together by an appropriate strap (included, see pitching instructions for more informations).

Seam sealing :
Seams sealing is included by default, but you can also do it yourself with a silicone sealant : it reduces our manufacturing time and therefore the price

Custom color :

Following colours are currently in stock :

  • Version UL : Grey
  • Version N : Grey
  • Version R : Olive green

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

Ground attachments by webbing + stainless rings : 98g

This option changes the linelocs attachments for adjustable loops of webbing. The adjustment is very easy, ultra-durable and gives large versatility on snow or other difficult terrains.

2 separate carrying bags :

A carrying bag is included with your tipi Aston, to make one package for both rainfly and innertent. (see specification tab for volume)

This option allows you to choose 2 separate bags instead of a single one, one for the rainfly and one for the innertent.

2 persons - from 880 to 1970g 


The Aston tipi has been conceived to protect two person from bad weather while keeping weight to a minimum. It comfortably accommodates two people with the innertent, and three people without it. For people taller than 1m85 (6'1"), it is recommended to use the bigger model Aston XL.

The Aston tipi has 8 anchor points to the ground, as well as 7 guylines points, for excellent wind resistance. Unlike most tipis, the central pole is shifted forward, outside of the inner tent. This allows for a pleasant living space between sleepers.

Details :
  • Large vestibule
  • Polyester fabric doesn't expand when exposed to moisture
  • Adjustable attachments
  • Sealed seams
  • Quick and easy pitching by one person
  • Rainfly pitches first
  • Rainfly and inner tent can be pitched independently
  • Large vent above the vestibule to manage condensation
  • The door can be opened without wetting the inner tent

Versions :

You can choose between three versions of this tent, UL, N et R. All three have the same dimensions, but use different fabrics, and zippers.

  • Aston UL is the ultralight version. The inner tent walls are made with mosquito netting. Due to the lightness of fabrics, this version needs to be treated carefully.
  • Aston N is the normal version, the best choice for most hikers and travellers. Fabrics are light yet strong, and inner tent walls are made with windbreak fabric + mosquito netting.
  • Aston R is the reinforced version, for long-distance trips and rough terrain. Fabrics have been chosen with emphasis on resistance and durability, inner tent walls are made with windbreak fabric + mosquito netting and zippers are stronger.
