The Seek Outside Redcliff Ultralight in Dyneema Cuben Fiber (DCF) is a pyramid / tipi hybrid suitable for sleeping 3 to 6 adults.  The exceptionally light, waterproof and durable DCF canopy sheds significant weight weighing a scant 18 ounces.  It features a single door and adjustable line-loc stakeout points that allow the tent to be pitched tight to the ground or elevated to promote ventilation.  It’s a floorless shelter with a stove-jack, but optional nests and internal half-liners can be added to control condensation, retain heat, and keep out unwanted guests when backpacking in “buggy” areas.  This versatility ensures the Redcliff UL easily adapts to every season and your needs.  The Redcliff pitches faster than a tipi thanks to its rectangular footprint and the angular panels shed wind better than pyramid design.  The steep, symmetrical profile and integrated sod skirts further enhance weather resistance.  The DCF Redcliff is a perfect solution whether used as a base camp shelter, or an ultralight backpacking shelter when shared by a larger group.  We now send this shelter with 6 long twisted stakes and 6 standard stakes, adding 5 oz to the total weight, but you can use standard stakes if weight is your primary concern.

The Redcliff shelters are great for 3 – 4 guys with gear.  A 3 man crew will be very comfortable with the stove, or 4-guys can fit without the stove, while up to 6 can sleep in the shelter without a stove.  The light & DCF versions have the stove jack relocated to the rear of the tent opposite the door, which optimizes space. It’s tall enough to stand inside which makes getting dressed in the mornings easier as does a cozy fire in a titanium wood burning stove.  I’ve done a couple backpack hunts in this shelter with 3 guys with the stove and can tell you this is a great backpack hunting shelter.  If you’re really looking to cut weight and stay on the move, the trekking pole hitch is a nice option that allows you to leave the carbon pole at the truck.  As a hot tent this shelter is perfect and spacious for 3 guys.

The Redcliff pitches easily thanks to the rectangular base, so it’s not hard to get a good tight pitch on your first try.  We’ve got great instructions that will ensure setup is a snap!

The Redcliff is my go-to tent – especially the ultra lightweight DCF version.  One thing to note is that the DCF version is bulkier than the standard Redcliff canopies.  It’s going to occupy more space in your pack but it’s significantly lighter and worth the trade-off in my opinion.  If you split the shelter, pole, and stove up amongst your party, you can haul this setup anywhere.  



The Redcliff shelters are rectangle based structures, so they’re easy to pitch.

  • Pick your sleeping area and desired door location – and orient the tent accordingly.
  • Ensure zipper is closed.
  • Stake the four primary corners in a rectangle (Hint – stake the 2 stake out points on either side of the door 1st – then stake the two points opposite those on the other side of the shelter).
  • Make sure the angles are as square and true as possible.  Do not overstretch the fabric or you will cause the bottom to spread out in a bell shape that reduces interior space.  Pull the fabric taut, then allow it to rebound a couple inches 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 the pole is up.
  • Open the door zipper and insert the pole (usually the middle hole setting on the adjuster that should be marked with silver Sharpie) and raise the shelter. Exit and zip the door shut.
  • Stake out the door and remaining seams.
  • Use the 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.
