Re: Tipi tents in bad weather ?
I've got a golite SL3 which is a small tipi style with a center pole or if there is an overhanging tree, you can tie it up that way. They really do work great and hold up very well in bad weather. I know that a lot of folks worry about the floorless design but I really like them----you can have a stove, muddy boots, pee if you have to, etc.
Would not be great in buggy spots but even then, you can close them up pretty tight.
