Redcliff Heated Shelter Winter Ski Pulk Trip

The Redclif is a pyramid / tipi hybrid suitable for sleeping 3 - 6 adults. Capable of using a nest on each end or liners, the Redcliff easily adapts to every season. With its rectangular footprint the Redcliff pitches faster than a tipi and its angular panels shed weather better than a plain pyramid.  A steep, symmetrical profile and integrated sod skirts further enhance weather resistance.  The Redcliff is equally at home as a base camping shelter while hunting, or a ultralight backpacking shelter when shared by a larger group.

Handmade in Grand Junction, CO.

  • Shelter canopy
  • Carbon Pole - 5 sections 
  • 12 stakes
  • 3 tubes of seam sealer


For best results we recommend seam-sealing your tent.  You can do it at home or have us do it for you (adds 2-3 weeks)(if we seal the shelter it will be shipped without extra tubes of sealant):

Seam Sealing Service

  • The Redcliff includes 3 tubes of SilNet seam sealer, enough to seal the entire tipi with a tube left over.  
  • Pitch the shelter normally and seal the outside 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.




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.
  • What about condensation?
  • What about carbon monoxide?
    • 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.

    Roomy for 3 men, gear and stove

    Posted by Mike on 10th Nov 2017

    This was the perfect tent for 3 of us. One took the stove, one the canopy, and one the poles and stakes. Nobody complained ablut the weight, and everyone loved that stove when the temp dropped into the teens. We had our gear, wood and selves in tge tent and we had room to spare.

    Tent shed wind and rain like a champ. We had condensation in the morning, but getting the stove going dried it out fairly quickly. Not really a big concern, but be aware if you are in a down bag with no water resistance.

    All in all its a great size, a great weight, a great product.

    Great tent

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Oct 2017

    The redcliff was exactly what I wanted. I was able to fit two full size cots and plenty of gear. It was a bit tight, with all of that equipment, but very efficient for what I needed. Weather temps were in the teens when I camped but I was very toasty inside the redcliff with the stove burning wood. I bought this tent to be able to use easily for car camping or backpacking and it fits both needs as advertised.

    Red Cliff + Nest + Wood Stove

    Posted by Richard and Kerry Anderson on 1st Sep 2017

    Just purchased all three for 2017 Archery Elk season, have not actually used yet but I have set up in the yard to seal the tent and burn in the stove. Very impressed with the quality of all the items cant wait to get out and put them to good use. Very good response time to shipping also
    If any improvement could be made I would suggest send basic instruction on the stove as I have seen it put together many different ways on the internet sites , the flat threaded buttons on the top of the stove or used for feet, the main pipe inside the damper pipe or outside ?
    Also supply enough of the cord for the nest it cant cost that much. Mine came with not enough cords and the bottom ones were to short. I live in a small town and had a hard time finding the proper size cordage for the slide tighteners.

    Great Shelter

    Posted by Hunter on 22nd Jul 2017

    Originally ordered the Cimmaron, but decided to try the Redcliff instead for the extra space. I'm glad I did! It is a palace for 2 guys, gear, stove, and woodpile. Would also work great for 3 guys if the woodpile was moved outside. Construction is top notch as well. Very happy with this purchase.

    Love it

    Posted by Todd on 13th Jun 2017

    This is a terrific shelter. I purchased the Redcliff after having used a similar type tent from another company. I can't be more pleased. I use it as a base camp hunting the backcountry in Montana from where I bivy out and return. It's like a palace, and adding the SXL stove just adds another level of comfort. Can't be more pleased.

    Great All Around Shelter

    Posted by Akicita on 29th Sep 2016

    I have no doubt in my mind that my decision to go with the Redcliff over other similar shelters was absolutely the right decision for me. Overall construction is above expectation and quality of material is as good as I have seen from other manufactures. The foot print allows ample room for many varieties of sleeping layouts. Overall height is enough for my 6 foot stature however I think with a little more height the wall pitch angles would allow for better bedding layouts. Setup is intuitive and can be done in less than 5 minutes if needed. I have been averaging about 10 to 15 minutes at a leisurely pace with full guy lines and a few adjustments. The Redcliff has proven to shed wind and moderate rain easily although I have only experienced sustained winds in the low of 15 to 25 mph with gust to 30 mph. I am relatively confident the design will shed common high country wind gust in the 50 mph range but only time in those conditions will tell if material and construction will hold up too. Overall the Redcliff has my overwhelming endorsement for design, size, weight and ease of setup. I am finding myself packing this over my other tents without hesitation regardless if I am alone or not.
