Finding the perfect tent to pitch is like finding the perfect campsite. So many factors to think about... Is there a perfect tent for every trip...? We found a tent to take on our Aussie adventure thats simple, lightweight has a 3 minute setup, breathes well and is super roomy. The Safir 7CP from Tentipi Sweden.
8 pegs and one pole is all you will need to get this huge shelter up and ready for the troops. Supplied with the Tentipi is a measuring cord and fabric guide plate to get the 8 pegs in first. Once in the Tentipi is hooked onto each peg remembering where the door is, the pole is inserted and UP SHE GOES! All thats needed next is a bit of tweaking on the pegs with the straps and the Tentipi is taught and tight. There are extra guy lines for sitting out some serious winds.
It's quiet inside as the wind moves around the Tentipi with ease and because if this the pitch angle doesn't matter that much. The only thing to think of when setting up is where you need the door facing.

Packing up is super easy and can be done on top of the floor. If the floor is wet and sandy it can be removed easily and left as a platform to drop the top down for pack up keeping it dry. The floor does come with it's own bag but can be left
We are happy to say that we are super stoked with our Tentipi Safir 7CP. It's simple, roomy and fast to setup plus being compact and made from excellent quality fabrics to last us our lifetime of camping.
We had only one gripe and that is the floor even though waterproof is still in a way open to creepy crawlies. The master plan now is to seal the floor ourselves with something like velcro so we can still remove it for packing up. Other than that it's the best tent we have ever owned and used.
