Santa Cruz, Calif. (March 1, 2017)Tepui Tents, a leading manufacturer of rooftop tents and outdoor adventure gear, announced today it was awarded a utility patent for its innovative rooftop tent system. The new patented Zipper GimpTM system couples the tent’s base with the tent’s canopy allowing for interchangeable sheltering systems depending on weather or other conditions the user may encounter.

The Zipper GimpTM system is valuable not only to the end-user, but also to Tepui’s vast network of retailers and distributors. Allowing several canopy styles to pair with a single base gives retailers the ability to provide a wide range of product options with less inventory and storage space.

“Innovation has always been a core value for Tepui,” said founder Evan Currid, “Although prior innovations such as our Ruggedized line and our SKY tents have raised the bar with regard to product offerings, our patented Zipper GimpTM will provide greater flexibility to our customers and retailers across our entire line.”

Tepui’s first tent line to utilize the Zipper Gimp, the Tepui Baja Series, received awards at its August 2016 Outdoor Retailer debut in Salt Lake City. The Zipper Gimp system will roll out to Tepui’s entire product line over the coming year.

In addition to Tepui’s developments in tent design, the manufacturer’s line of accessories has expanded to feature custom fitted bedding for each tent’s included high-density foam mattress, boot bags for the “front porch” of the tent, and a hard shell tent with an integrated rack system that can accommodate a user’s gear. Tepui tents are available at Outdoor and Auto Accessory shops nationwide, as well as REI, Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Backcountry.com and Tepuitents.com.
