I can't see ever going back to a regular tent again. Floorless is for me. I had a seek outside 4 man tipi and it worked great on our moose/ caribou hunt in Alaska. Taking a kifaru sawtooth this year. Warming up before going to sleep with the stove is amazing after a day afield. I say give it a shot. I think you will love it. But then again there's some folks that just don't care for them. Never know unless you try.

Same here. I was kind of hesitant at first but I'll never go back to a regular tent again.

Big, big fan of my Seek. I use floorless all year around with not many complaints. Just be aware with single wall shelters condensation tends to be higher.

I have the SO 4-man tipi. I really like it and being floorless is generally preferred by me. The only exception is during certain times of the year when poisonous snakes (timber rattler) may still be active and looking for warmth at night.

Do you have any bug issues using it year around? Do you add a bivvy?

I dont add a bivy but as far as bugs you are more than likely going to sleep with a few. Grasshoppers in the summer, maybe some ants but Ive never had an issue not being able to sleep. If you want its not so bad packing a lightweight tarp as a footprint to alleviate bugs

In Alaska did you sleep on the ground or take cots? Planning a trip and was leaning towards picking up a SO shelter but wasn’t sure about sleeping on the tundra if it’s fairly wet (never been to AK before)

We had a 50 pound limit so we only took pads. Worked great. We were dropped low along a river and found a dry gravel area to pitch our tipi. I would think any where you can pitch a tent you can do fine with a tipi.

I ordered the Seek Outside Dyneema ultralight Redcliffe & Large Uturn stove stove months ago still waiting on it. I bought it for Alaska next year as we have a 55lb weight restriction for our supercub. From what I have seen it sets up super easy and it is incredibly light but $$$$.

I think they are a great asset. Especially when hunting in places with uncertain weather conditions. They are worth the money in my opinion if you need to ensure warmth and the ability to dry out.
