*Expected Delivery July 2020 - Long Lead Time On Fabric .
The Redcliff 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.
Current Lead Times 8 - 12 weeks.

STOVE INFORMATION FOR DYNEEMA SHELTERS:
Dyneema will not burn or propagate a flame however it does have a lower melting point. Due to the lower melting point, we recommend you do NOT use the anything that inhibits sparks from moving away from your tent such as a rain cap. We also do not recommend burning duraflame logs, or real pitchy wood or accelerants that can create a lot of soot. Use a spark arrestor. For the Redcliff a slightly longer stove pipe is not a bad idea (such as 8 Ft ) .

The Redcliff is a rectangle based structure and is therefore easy to pitch.
- Pick your sleeping area and desired door location - this dictates how you pitch the shelter.
- Stake the four corners in a rectangle, making sure the angles are as square and true as possible. Do not overstretch the fabric or you will result in a bell shape at the bottom that reduces interior space.
- Make sure vent is open or closed, stovejack is open or closed, as desired. (Harder to reach once pole is up)
- Insert the pole and raise the shelter.
- Stake out the doors.
- Stake out the seams near the doors.
- Use the guylines on each end to stabilize and increase interior space.

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.
- What about condensation?
- It's single wall, there will be condensation in some conditions. Liners help a lot, as do stoves. Mostly you just have to learn to manage it. Read 5 Ways to Manage Condensation in Seek Outside Tents
- 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.
