- Choose where you want to sleep and where you want the door to be.
- Stake the corners of the shelter in a rectangle shape, ensuring that the angles are as square and true as possible. Avoid overstretching the fabric to prevent a bell-shaped bottom that reduces interior space.
- Make sure the vent and stovejack are open or closed as desired before raising the pole, as they may be harder to reach once the pole is up.
- Insert the pole and raise the shelter.
- Stake out the doors.
SEAM SEALING:For best results we recommend seam-sealing your tent. You can do it at home or have us do it for you
- To seal the shelter, pitch it normally and seal the outside seams.
- You can run a thin bead of sealant along the seam, press it in with a finger, and wipe away excess on a paper towel.
- Alternatively, you can use an acid brush from a hardware store to spread the sealant.
INFO ON HOT TENTS:Temperature Rating
- We use high temp silicone coated fiberglass material, rated to several thousand degrees, for the stove jack. The tent material never touches the hot pipe. If there are any pinholes from floating embers, they can be sealed with a small dab of silicone without damaging the shelter.
- Carbon monoxide is not a concern in these shelters due to the peak vent and air flow from the zipper and sod skirt. If necessary, leave a door unzipped for more venting.
FAQ:Does the Cimarron have interior hang loops for drying?
- The method we prefer is a prusik knot on the pole for both drying heavy gear and attaching a nest. The prusik on a pole method is strong and secure.
- The Cimarron has a different seam construction and shape that provides better seam integrity and less stretch at the corners. We put guy outs where they make sense and provide usability and performance benefits. In testing, we found that corner guy out locations are a detriment to the Cimarron's design
