The Tentipi Safirflex 15 is a tipi-style center-pole tent that provides easy set up and a large footprint. One guy can set this tent up in 10-15 minutes. Due to the Safirflex versatile set-up options, it’s perfect for hunting in all weather types, from hot summer to cold winter weather and everything in between.
One big advantage of tipi style tents is their ability to shed rain/snow without requiring a tarp cover. This is due to their steep wall angles that don’t give water a chance to pool before running off.
The Safirflex is made from a lightweight canvas that just about eliminates condensation issues. Compared to sil-nylon construction, canvas breathes much better and you’ll be hard pressed to get it to drip.
The tent has a huge 20’ diameter with the equivalent of a 9’x9’ space to stand up in. Lift the sides and the tent can shelter over 500 square feet—think big hunting camps where everyone wants to gather for dinner, or (get this) around an open fire under the Safirflex 15. You read that right, with the ability to raise the cap by drawcords, users can enjoy an open fire in the Safirflex 15 no matter the configuration: open sides or closed. An incredible option not available in any other design in the industry.
Robby Denning recently used the Safirflex 15 on a late season mule deer hunt. In the nine days of the hunt, he experienced everything from wet snow and cold to warm sunny days. He gives a complete wrap-up on the Safirflex 15 in the video below. The Tentipi Safirflex 15, and a complete line up of other Tentipi tents, is offered exclusively through Mansfield Outdoors.
