The Redcliff Light is a hybrid tipi – pyramid shelter. The main differences from the standard Redcliff is the Light version has one door, and linelocs on the stake loops for ease of ventilation, as well as a slightly different stove-jack placement to better center the stove in the tent.

It is a floorless shelter that has slightly less floor space than the Six Person Tipi, and is a bit shorter, but due to the shape is faster to pitch, lighter weight, and still sleeps three with a stove or six without a stove. The Redcliff handles severe weather really well.

This package includes a half liner to help manage condensation drips and a carbon pole.

All Seek Outside tents utilize the best materials available and are made by experts at their craft in Colorado.

The Seek Outside Redcliff is one of my new favorites for a 3-man + titanium stove camp.  The shelter pitches easily and might be a little easier to master the pitch for a first timer.  Plenty of room for 3 in hot-tent mode, and 4+ will be comfy if you leave the stove behind.  The Redcliff light saves some weight over the 6-man tipi, but doesn’t sacrifice much in the way of interior space.  The height is still adequate to stand up in, but it doesn’t have as much stand up space as the 6-man tipi.  It’s a great choice for a pack-in hunt when weight is a significant consideration.  I’m going to add more of these to our inventory as I think it’s a great shelter that’s going to be very popular.  Keep your eye out for the Redcliff Ultralight with the Dyneema Cuben Fiber Canopy in 2021!

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.
  • Ensure zipers are closed.
  • Stake the four primary corners (Hint stake 2nd stake loop on either side of the door 1st – then state the two opposite of those for all primary 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 that reduces interior space.  Pull the fabric taut, then allow it to rebound to a relaxed position before staking. 
  • Make sure vent and stove jack are open or closed as desired before raising the tent as they’re harder to reach once pole is up.
  • Open a door zipper, Insert the pole (usually 3rd hole from longest setting on the adjuster) and raise the shelter. Zip door shut.
  • Stake out the door(s).
  • Stake out the end seams and seams near the door(s).
  • Use the mid-height guylines as desired to stabilize the tent against wind and increase interior space.
  • Assemble the stove (if rented with shelter) and push the pipe through the stove jack and then set pipe into the damper ensuring the pipe is not seated too deeply so the damper is free to open/close.

FAQ – The most common questions we get about hot tents:

  • 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.  Use of the damper and screen along with the correct stove pipe height should eliminate hot sparks falling on the canopy.  Avoid burning extremely pitchy wood to reduce sparks.
  • How does a floorless shelter work in wet weather?
    • Very well!  Don’t pitch in a depression obviously, but the ground inside dries out quickly, and it’s far more 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.
