    No but I've seen one in person and it's well made.
    It's a 6 panel tarp tipi with reinforced stake out areas and top cone.

    A friend of mine has the Cabelas 8x8 outfitter lodge and really likes it. Very well constructed, but weighs 13 lbs.
    Comes 8x8, 10x10, 12x12

    The Shangri-La 5 is now available again (Evergreen only). Just ordered mine for $299.99 (minus $200 in gift cards that I saved up).

    Well D**n I may have to go over my similar tipi with silicon then before I try and use it. I will be cutting the floor out of mine to avoid the :"Lake effect"

    Still mine seems reasonably well sewn and strong enough to stand up in a wind. Stronger than the dome I lost last year anyway

    Default homemade teepee

    I gleaned this info from youtube and made my own tarp teepe for just the cost of the tarp.

    can't understand this guy, i think he is speaking English, not sure.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-MJPouEIcM

    I made mine from a simple 12 x 16 polytarp, this method results in a four sided trapezoid with one side being the floor.
    I staked my door open for ventilation and used a common GI poncho as a rain barrier over the opening. you can stake out the door so as to completely close the opening.
    I used an old painters extension for the tent pole, but any twig could be used. I also used some plastic and metal tent pegs I had, but any twig could be used. I also, took a shop rag that I tore up and made "buttons", where I could gather and loop a piece of 550 cord over to pull out the side panels to give a little more interior room.
    worth a try for the price.

    I don't know about the quality of these tents, but I have purchased tents from them and their cheap price does suffer a bit in quality, but I have been happy with the ones I have purchased from them.

    Hope that helps
    Last spring I bought the 10x10 teepee tent. As I tryed to stand up the center pole the grommet in the tent fabric ripped out. I did everything right as far as I could tell. The center pole is not length adjustable requiring it to be set on a level surface to work properly ( I assume ). On a good note Sportsmans Guide refunded my purchase money and S&H.

    If your going to go all out than get a Tentipi. Otherwise I'd suggest something like this. But what do you want to use the tent for? Like what weather?

    Default tipi

    I've owned an ton of shelters and if your going for the Go Lite, go all the way and get the SL-5. At times it's nice to have the extra space when the weather is nasty or if you have someone with you.

    Honestly, for the money it's just darn hard to beat Go Lite's SL-5. The only thing needed on the Go Lite is to sew in an Ti Goat Versa jack stove port and upgrade to an carbon fiber pole.
