Cimarron Half nest which works as a 1/3 nest for the Redcliff. A comfortable two person nest for full sized adults. Suitable for a couple with infant or toddler as well. Short enough that it can be pitched with most trekking poles if you want to pitch the nest by itself in fair weather or under a tarp. This nest provides full protection from ground moisture, bugs and critters. Can provide some 3 season moisture protection when used with a shelter, and will hold in a little more heat.Has netting on all 4 sides, sloping towards the pole which would set outside the nest in front of the door. Has a bathtub floor with 2" sidewalls, corners will require sealing for full waterproof protection; SilNet can be purchased here.
One nest works well in a Cimarron and leaves the other half the tent open for gear or a stove. Two nests fit well in a Redcliff, providing comfortable fully enclosed sleeping for 4, however due to cordage attachment, one side can interfere with stove pipe / port, therefore for the Redcliff we recommended one nest when using a stove. Two nests will fit in the Cimarron but there would not be enough space between them to enter the nests and we do not recommend this.
Fabrics and construction:
The floor is HyperD PU 4000 40D. A 40 Denier ripstop nylon with a 4000 MM hydrostatic head. This fabric is a terrific balance of durability, weight and long term waterproofing. This provides better long term waterproofing and abrasion than a 30D sil fabric and lower weight and pack size than a 70D PU fabric.
The sides are No Seeum mesh which provides excellent breathability and moderate moisture resistance.
Zipper YKK 5 full open front
includes 4 line loc corners
Weight: 26.5 oz with stuff sack
Comparison to Cougar: Wider, Longer, slightly taller and a little heavier . Cougar fits more shelters while this nest provides more interior space for the Cimarron and Redcliff (Likely fits 6 person and larger tipi tents as well). Two people will prefer this nest.
Amazing build quality, set it up in high winds, handles the wind better than any tent I have used in the past period. I completely recommend this product, thanks Seek Outside!James Kile
