The Aston XL tipi is a bigger version of the Aston tipi. It can comfortably protect two tall persons (up to 2m00) from bad weather with the innertent, and three to four persons without it.

The Aston tipi has 8 anchor points to the ground, as well as 10 guylines points, for good 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 fasteners
  • 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

Specifications

You can choose between two versions of this tent,  N or R. Both have the same dimensions, but use different fabrics and zipper.

  • Aston XL N is the normal version, the best choice for most hikers and travellers. Fabrics are light yet strong.
  • Aston XL R is the reinforced version, for long-distance trips and rough terrain. Fabrics have been chosen with emphasis on resistance and durability, and zippers are stronger.

Accessories

Stakes : 185g

A set of 16 stakes is available : we chose high quality aluminium stakes made in the Netherlands :
  • 8 Rockpin stakes to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 8 UL duraluminium stakes for guylines when the weather turns bad.

Photo of the set here.


Assembly of two trekking poles : 5g

The required length of the central pole is 180cm. We advise to use both of your trekking poles strapped together with the included webbing. This solution is the lightest and very resistant : instuctions here (pdf).


Mostert central pole : 320g

If you do not use trekking poles, a light and strong mostert pole is available.


2 separate carrying bags :

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