The Cimarron is an ultralight 4 person (without a stove) pyramid style tent with subtle angles that is comfortable for two when using a stove and compatible with either of our 2 person nests.
The Cimarron makes very effective use of space. The footprint is such that it can still be used on many campground pads where space is often limited. The tent itself is closest to a slightly rectangular pyramid, and sets up almost exactly the same as a pyramid, but with less wasted space. Slight tipi styling reduces flat sidedness and maximizes space. 4 adults can sleep across without a stove, and two adults can sleep lengthwise very comfortably. Dual side entrance design allows the tent to be used in many non conventional pitches when terrain, need or desires dictate.
All of our gear uses the best fabrics and materials we can source, is made in-house by experts at their craft, and is backed by our outstanding warranty.
Handmade in Grand Junction, CO.
Brown - brighter.
Green - more muted, blends well.
Light penetration is equal.
Sewn in screens keep out flying insects (mosquitoes, flies, yellow jackets) and allow you to vent thru the shelter.
Screens cannot be added after the shelter is built.
Screens add 10 oz.
If you prefer total bug protection (spiders, ticks, mosquitoes) then add a nest.
Medium is 4 oz lighter than the Large.
Large fire box is 3.75" longer than Medium.
Decision: Large accepts longer wood (less wood prep), and throws more heat, but comes at a 4 oz weight penalty.

Interior hang loops for tying clothes line or hanging gear
External guyout loops - use to steepen walls, or pitch the shelter down in tight spots
The Four Person Tipi Person includes enough SilNet seam sealer to seal the entire tipi with a tube left over.
Seal the outside seams, but do it from the inside - pitching the tipi inside out allows you to reach all of the seams.
The easy way to seal is to run a thin bead of sealant along the seam, then press it in with a finger, wiping the excess on a paper towel.
Alternatively, you can use an acid brush from a hardware store to spread the sealant.
INTRO TO HOT TENTS:
The most common questions we get about hot tents are:
How do you not burn the tent down?
The stove jack is a high temp fiberglass material rated to several thousand degrees. The tent material never touches the hot pipe. You can get pinholes from floating embers, but a small dab of silicone seals the pinhole and doesn't hurt the shelter.
How does a floorless shelter work in wet weather?
Really darn well. Don't pitch in a depression obviously, but the ground inside dries out quickly, and it's super convenient to just walk in with muddy shoes (or dogs) and not worry about getting your floor dirty.
It's truly not a concern. We include a peak vent, plus the shelter will draw air through the zipper and under the sod skirt. If you're still concerned, leave a door unzipped 8" or so at the bottom to allow more venting.
I haven't used this shelter stove in the wilderness yet but I have set it up in the front yard. The shelter and stove are really nice. The stove and shelter are very light! That was what I was looking for. The stove is easy to assemble and burns really well. I think it will be very helpful in keeping us warm on our elk hunts. So far it seems to be a great product.Unknown

Tent is very durable and light weight. Stove works great too once you get good at putting it together. Had a problem with condensation and would like it if I could find a detailed video on set up, and also couldn't find the setback and height guide on the website.
Cimarron setup should be on our main page or youtube here https://youtu.be/HXbuRAOI5oM
There are no setbacks .. it is super simple Cole

I cannot believe how lightweight and durable this bundle is. The medium stove that comes with this is the perfect size to heat this tent up.

Am seriously impressed. I live in the Highlands of Scotland and have been looking for a hiking friendly winter camping set up. Until now there have been only two choices; a tent and gas stove or a tarp shelter and campfire.
This seems to be the perfect solution in that its fully enclosed from the elements but can be safely kept warm all night. Was also pleased to discover that the medium titanium stove is a lot more efficient and less hungry than a campfire.
This significantly reduces wood foraging and processing time, especially in the darker months which is a bonus at the end of a long hike.
Easy to put up, quick to dry, roomy and very light even with the stove.
I wont be using the supplied pegs again though. They seem a bit delicate for hard use and require a baton or mallet to drive in. One very small issue with an otherwise very good piece of kitTom Gold

Very good, but a couple issues.
I have had about 6 nights in this so far. It is a pretty high quality product. It has good craftsmanship and is quite portable. It's a bit smaller than a tent of the same size. I was surprised how much fabric is stuffed into a football sized bag.
So the good:
It's large. Even with a SXL stove, I could probably fit 3 in here with wood and light gear. 2 would be more comfortable, but there is definitely room.
The first night I slept in it was during heavy rain. I didn't seam seal it (although it came with seam sealer) and it didn't leak a drop. I was on a slight slope and was afraid water would pour in from the sides, but it wasn't an issue.
The stove is pretty solid. It's big enough that I don't have to use a saw or ax to cut wood most dead wood. Every time I've stoked it at night, it's had hot coals to restart a fire in the morning.
It is portable. I generally pack pretty heavily with a solar panel, groundcloth, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, camping chair, cook stuff and a 100oz camelbak, but this is portable enough that I can still fit it into my 45L bag.
Very nice pole. Carbon fiber... weighs nothing and the 4.5 pieces slide into each other making it a 2 piece to carry around. So light and compact.. oh and like 3/4" thick, so rugged.
Lots of floor space, but not very might height. I have a helinox camp chair (which sits very low to the ground) but my head is always bumping into the walls. It's more comfortable to sit on my bedroll than to sit in a chair in there. It's not bad with one of the door flaps open, but I can imagine that when the temperature is very cold, it will not be as much of an option.
Not much ventilation. There is a vent at the top, but it doesn't seem to do anything. When cooking on the stove, it gets very very smokey inside... To the point of suffocation. It clears out in seconds with the flaps open, but that also releases all the heat. I haven't had to deal with much condensation, but I imagine it will become more of a problem as the temperature lowers.
Chimney pipe. This sucker is really really hard to get in to place the first time. It tries to roll back into it's compact length when trying to roll it into a pipe the first time. It got a ton of kinks because it wanted to roll against me. Probably took an hour to assemble the first time. It's incredibly simple to roll now, as it has formed to the shape of the pipe, and it is easy to roll back up for portability too, but the pipe is all kinds of kinky now. The little dents I put in it from it's original unrolling are still there and make it look pretty ghetto. Works great, looks like something from a post-apocalyptic survival flick.
Price: It is one of the cheapest on the market for a product like this, but it's still a really big chunk of change. I'd say it's worth it, but still... OUCH.
This is a cool piece of kit. I will definitely use it for many years to come. I usually do solo camping trips and this will make winter camping much more enjoyable. The biggest thing for me is the height. It will be hard to hang out in there with comfort. Very comfortable to sleep in, but less so for longer periods, like to weather a storm or warm up with friends.Dre

Good to go
Well 1st of all the time it took to get to me was lighting fast. There was a bit of a Delay because of a back order but that was expected. I was missing a few bolts for the stove gave them a call and boom she already knew who I was when she answered the phone. Boom part was at my door NEXT DAY! She probably got tired of talking to me because I had to ask her to add something on my address to ensure delivery. Boom no problem! So service is top of the line.
Now the product. The tipi is extremely well built and the carbon fiber pole and stakes are IT. The stove I'm telling ya Burns H.O.T. hot easy Peasy lemon squeezy to put together and break down stovepipe was a bit weird but once I figured it out (The oh duh moment) went together smooth. All packs away in my backpack like nothing. I'm sure people will look at you like "YEAH RIGHT" then you'll whip it out set it up stove and all then the jealousy will kick in as well as your grin as they walk back to WHATEVER and you zip down the flap toss a few logs on the fire and say SEE YA! the tipi can easily hold 4 people who can store gear on the outside or Dad and 2 kids with gear or You and your Babe with gear and the Dog(s)
My only regret is I didn't go BIGGER other than that these folks know what the ~e°l they are doing. I'll be back for the Bigger one next year trust me Bernie

Stove as described!
My new stove is exactly what I was looking for! Lightweight and extremely packable! I am looking forward to using it this fall during the elk season on back country hunts!Bob Terwilliger
