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.

Current Lead Times 8 - 12 weeks.

Handmade in Grand Junction, CO.

STOVE INFORMATION FOR DYNEEMA CUBEN FIBER SHELTERS: 

Dyneema Cuben Fiber 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 ) .

PITCHING:

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.

KNOTS:  

Read Knots You Should Know to learn our favorite ways of rigging cordage to perform tasks.  The most common tasks you'll need to do are:
  • Putting a Prusik On The Pole to pitch a nest or rig a dryline for hanging gear. 
  • Tying guyline or mainline to a tree or branch. 
  • Connecting line to a guyout. 
  • Tying off to a stake.

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?
  • 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.
