I'm just kicking around ideas for now. I'm not trying to start a brand war by any means as I own an AO Artika and I love it!
That being said, the Safir 7 by mansfield outdoors looks like a great tent and I have my eye on it. The big draw for me is the space compared to the weight while remaining warm at the same time. I am thinking it would be great for a float hunt. Has anyone slept in both of these tents? If so, do you like one over the other? Please let us all know what you think as far as pro's and con's of the tipi vs the tent.
- 79 SF
- 2-3 people with cots (i assume, in fall winter)
- Pack size- 27"x 22"x 18"
- Vestibule- 22SF
I'm pretty sure this tent is bulletproof as everything from AK tent is top notch
- Unsure of the livable SF due to the side angle of the tipi
- It claims enough room for 6-8 people but that is from sleeping on the ground vs on cots
- Pack size 26" long 10.5" diameter
- No vestibule
- Price $2276
The draw to the tipi for me is the ease of set up and weight. I understand that it probably would be a bit difficult to keep up on some gravel bars.
