HI,

I have just signed up here. Although I've have been looking on this site for a long time. Here is my question can anyone show a pic of the saw tooth or paratip,ready to be packed in backpack with stove ready to be pack in backpack, this will give me a idea of how much space is needed to pack the whole package, stove and tent. The pics I see only have the tent packed up but never see both as both will be needed together it would be nice to see everything together that will be packed. Thank you

I couldn't find a picture of the sawtooth or paratipi rolled up but if you go to this page, http://store.kifaru.net/stoves-p87.aspx, you can click on the size stove you want and you can see its length and width dimensions when folded up. They all go into a case that is between 2 - 3 inches deep/thick depending on the stove selected. The stove pipes look to roll up to about 2-3 inches in diameter. Your best bet would be to call Kifaru CS and ask them for the dimensions.

Larry thanks a lot that did help me out some. The medium size stove is only 12 inches so long and 2 thick that with the tent is not that bad to pack then

Maybe this can give u an idea.

From left to right :Sawtooth, Paratarp with annex , medium stove.
PS: if you use compress sack, you can compress both of tarps smaller.

Thanks so much for those pics, that is just what I wanted to see , so the saw tooth sack is just longer than the Para tarp, and is only one pound heavier than the paratipi. Just let me understand this, I am slow, the whole tent with poles fit in the sack and the stove comes in the other sack right, so to pack everything it would only be the sack for tent and poles and ground pins, they would all be in one compress sack and stove pack in the other .Kev

Yes, that is correct. With my Paratipi, I pack it, and put the stove on the outside of the pack. Must update to a Sawtooth and demote the Paratipi to the kids!!

I don't think the picture includes the poles and probably not the stakes. Poles are about twice the length of the packed sawtooth bag. Great pictures though to show the size of the bags.

Okay so the poles and stakes would be together in one sack or one sack for each?, I don't think the pole and stakes would take up much space? Maybe another pic showing poles and stakes in sacks would be great. These pics are great help it really gives me a idea of the whole outfit and how it looks like, and how much space would be needed to pack, thanks for the help

I don't have pictures, but pole bag is about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. The sawtooth comes with plastic durapegs, a bag about 9 in by 4 in. I often use Ti needle stakes and MSR groundhog stakes which can be packed to a 6 in by 1 in bundle.

Sorry missed the pole and peg bags. The above pictures only show sawtooth tent body. (NO pole, NO stakes)
Maybe this video can give you some idea about whole system of sawtooth tipi.

Does anyone have a recommendation for the size of compression stuff sack that works well for a Sawtooth WITH the optional interior liner? Does one of the "sausage" Kifaru compression sacks fit and work, or is it easier to use a conventional style compression sack? Thanks, (I've got a Sawtooth and liner, and I want to be able to leave the liner attached into the tent and stow the whole thing in a single compression sack. I want to be able to get the bundle as small as possible for backpacking, but also want a stuff sack that's big enough to get the tent/liner into the bag without too much difficulty, particularly in less than ideal weather conditions when it's super cold or wet and rainy. Thanks (I'd rather learn from the experience of others, rather than my usual route of buying a bunch of different sizes and end up not needing/using the ones that don't work out -:). )
