The Gstove Nature View is the first in Gstove's tipi tent series. All of our tipi tents are packed with unique features and accessories that are custom-made exclusively for Gstove. Intended for all year use and tailored specifically to accomodate our range of tent stoves the 'Nature View' range of tipi tents can be upgraded for the life of the tent.
With is large open door, The 'Gstove Nature View' allows you sit inside by the warmth of your Gstove and still enjoy the view. Gstove's 'Nature View' tipi`s are designed to be low weight and durable whilst providing a fast heating protected environment when camping in the cooler winter months and at the same time be spacious enough for it's occupants and their equipment.
The 'Nature View' range of tipi's are feature packed and as standard comes with heat-protected materials in all of the critical areas that can withstand temperatures as high as 400 degrees celsius. This ensures the safety of the occupants as well as allowing you to disassemble a hot Gstove tent stove without any risk of melting or destroying the top of the tipi. There is also an optional heat and fire resistant top hat in the same material.
A Gstove 'Nature View' tipi is sure to be a long-lasting and faithful addition to your touring and hiking kit with a comprehensive range of spares you'll be able to simply replace any lost or damaged components.
All of Gstove 'Nature View' tipi's have an integrated a 530mm diameter opening with multiple zippers and an integrated top flap that is easily used in either the opened or closed position and can also be rolled up and secured so you can make the most of any cool breeze during the warmer months.
Accessories for this such as a mosquito net window cover, PVC window and a heat proof opening for your Gstove chimney flue to exit safely when used with the optional tent protector makes the 'Nature View' tipi a complete light weight camping shelter. These optional accessories are easily attached to the zipper that is already fitted as standard to the tipi tent and the standard cover can still be used without having to remove any of the optional accessories.
You can see the full range of accessories below.
Our tipi sizing system is unique to Gstove and takes into account all of the equipment you may need on your outdoor adventures so when we say our tipi is, for example a 7-9 person tent you can rest assured that won't have to leave your belongings outside to get a good nights sleep.
Since our tipi`s are developed with our Gstove tent stoves in mind we have added several features that come as standard on the Gstove 'Nature View' tipi range. The guy ropes on our top flap can be easily be adjusted in length at first use and also incorporate a unique metal clip that is easy to fasten to the bottom guy ropes, ensuring that the top flap is secured in strong winds but can still be easily adjusted if needed. A handy feature of these additional support ropes is that you can easily un-clip three out of the six ropes and connect them directly onto your Gstove 'Spark Arrestor' adding additional support directly to the chimney flue in high winds.
The Gstove 'Nature View' is designed to be set up fast and easy by one person no matter what tent size you choose.
1. Start with folding out the tipi and fasten the tent pegs in the bottom tent peg ropes.
2. Insert the middle pole and install the top flap before lifting up.
3. Finish by attaching the ropes and tighten the bottom and the bottom ropes.
We recommend the optional floor insert which reduces condensation and makes it easier to set up the tent.
Gstove Nature View Tipi Tent Features:
Unique door shape to provide easy opening and closing, as well as providing a tremendous view of nature from the inside of the tipi. There is also its own integrated door made of mosquito netting that can be opened and closed separately. Both doors can be rolled up and secured separately if you only want to use one of the doors. The mosquito net door ensures on the cold days with cold winds you can still sit inside a warm lavvo but can still enjoy breath taking views. The door has its own overlapping polyester covers that prevent rain and snow from ending up on the zipper so that it will always be easy to open and close.
The guy ropes on the Gstove 'Nature View' range of tipi tents are orange in colour which makes them easy to see and a simple adjustment design makes it easy get correct length and tightness when setting up. The top guy ropes have their own elasticated ties so you can easily roll the guy ropes together and secure them to prevent them from catching up when packing the lavvo down and making life easier on the next set up. All guy rope attachments on the tipi are reinforced to ensure that they can withstand strong winds.
The centre pole of the Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent is constructed of anodised alloy with the three sections of the pole held together with an elasticised cord. Being constructed of alloy means the centre pole has the structural integrity needed to withstand high winds whilst remaining light enough to not significantly impact the overall weight of the tent.
Tent Peg Attachments
To ensure stability in strong winds the Gstove 'Nature View' tipi has a total of 3 adjustable peg attachments on each side ensuring the tipi stands steady regardless of the weather. It also keeps at bay cold drafts and snow from getting in under the tipi if you are not using the optional zip in floor. The adjustable tent attachments also allow you to relocate the tent peg should you strike a stone or hard surface when setting up.
The Gstove tent pegs are made of strong aluminium that is suitable for use on most surfaces. The tent pegs are anodised red which ensures that they are highly visible both in the long grass in summer and in the winter snow. The tent pegs also have orange ropes attached so you can easily pull them out of hard or frozen ground.
The Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent storm skirt ensures that the zippers for the optional floor are protected from inclement weather. The storm skirt also ensures that wind, snow and cold drafts do not come in under the tipi when the floor is not in use.
The Gstove 'Nature View' has an integrated Gstove hatch at the rear of the tipi that can be easily rolled up out of the way or wrapped around the chimney flue 'Tent Protector'.
Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent is equipped with 3 adjustable air vents that can be easily adjusted too the desired setting and all of the air vents have integrated mosquito nets to prevent insects from entering the tent. The air vents also have their own protective flaps on the outside of the tent. The air vents are located to provide maximum airflow inside and one air vent is located under our unique round hatch in the back of the tent where your Gstove tent stove can be placed. This means that the stove always has sufficient air flow for maximum effect without having to open the others if not needed.
Power Cable Opening:
The Gstove 'Nature View' is equipped as standard with 2 openings on the lower wall (1 on each side) that can be opened and closed with a zipper which ensures that you can run a power cable at campsites into the tent.
At the top of the 'Nature View' tipi is the mosquito net that can easily be adjusted to the opening you want. When using a Gstove tent stove it becomes completely tight around the tent protector, but you can also completely close it around the centre pole if you do not use a stove. In addition, the mosquito net can be rolled up if you don't have a use for it.
Integrated rain leaders in all of the critical areas of the tipi tent ensure that rain is led away from the lavvo rather than towards doors and access points. Rain leaders can be adjusted to the desired angle by adjusting the length of the guy ropes.
One of the problems with packing any sort of camping gear is usually that the supplied carry bag is so small that it's a real challenge when you're packing down to head home. The Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent comes with a larger bag that can be tightened down, but in addition you also get an extra bag that has a top opening along the entire bag, the choice is yours. This ensures that you can simply roll up your Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent and easily fit it in your carry bag, even if you have the optional floor installed. In winter it is often that the tent is both cold and damp and with this bag you can quickly and easily pack up and head off and worry about drying out when you're back home.
Leave No Trace:
One thing we consider to be very important is that what you take with you on your camping adventures should also be taken back back home with you and to help you maintain a clean camp site for your stay and for future stays we have added a large garbage bag made out of the same ripstop polyester used in the construction of your Gstove 'Nature View' tipi tent.
