The Robens Green Cone is a fantastic take on the classic tipi. Designed with an offset pole in order to increase usable living space inside the tent; there is room inside for 4 people to sleep comfortably. This is a great tent for bushcraft, family camping or just for good fun without compromising on the quality or performance.
There is also ample interior storage space on either side the main door. This is great for wet gear or for any camping/cooking equipment that you want to keep sheltered.
We think this tent could be great as the basecamp and launching point for whatever adventure you are on. Some might find it a little weighty over longer distances but there's nothing stopping you from separating out the inner and dividing the pole between your team to make it more manageable.
Want to make things lighter? Then leave the inner tent at home and pitch the tipi as a simple bothy. Using it like this also makes it possible to take the Green Cone with you as a robust day shelter on longer treks/walks where you aren't planning on overnighting.
The Green Cone's pole is telescopic so you can raise or lower the edge of the outer tent. This creates a gap between the ground and the outer which allows air to circulate through the interior more freely.
With greater ventilation you can reduce the amount of condensation that builds naturally builds up through use (condensation happens with every tent to varying degrees) and also help keep the interior cooler during the summer months.
On the other hand, if the weather is particularly bad you can lower the tent - effectively hunkering down against the elements.
Start by making sure the door is zipped shut and then peg out the taped loops either side of the front door.
Then work your way around the tent in one direction pegging the adjustable guylines around the edge of the tent. Don't pull the tent too tight as you peg these out but make sure you give it some shape.
Once all the pegs are placed around the edge of the tent, unzip the door and with the pole set to its smallest length feed it up into the tent and raise.
At this point the tipi is effectively pitched. All that's left to do is adjust the height to suit your needs and then to straighten/tighten the pegs around the outer.
Weather depending you should then peg out the guylines too for additional stability.
