Seek Outside Cimarron
The Cimarron is an ultralight 4 person (without a stove) pyramid style tent with subtle angles that is comfortable for two when using a stove.
The Cimarron makes very effective use of space. The footprint is such that it can still be used on many campground pads where space is often limited. The tent itself is closest to a slightly rectangular pyramid, and sets up almost exactly the same as a pyramid, but with less wasted space. Slight tipi styling reduces flat sidedness and maximizes space. 4 adults can sleep across without a stove, and two adults can sleep lengthwise very comfortably. Dual side entrance design allows the tent to be used in many non conventional pitches when terrain, need or desires dictate.
All of Seek Outside’s gear uses the best fabrics and materials possible to source, and is made in-house by experts at their craft, and is backed by Seek Outside’s outstanding warranty.
The tent has a stove jack and can be used as a hot tent, together with a stove, for example the Seek Outside Titanium Wood Stove. The tent has a covered, zip down apex vent. This vent will stay quiet in windy conditions or can be propped opened in calmer conditions.
There is no bug protection (screen doors) included in the tent (to save weight), but there are Seek Outside Half-Nests to be bought separately.
The Cimarron features 8 ground level stake points and has external guyout loops for creating steeper walls. Dual doors, with #8 YKK zippers, allow for venting, separate entrances when used with two people, and can be guyed out tarp-style during fair weather.

For best results we recommend seam-sealing your tent.
- The Cimarron includes 2 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.
Intro to hot tents
The most common questions we get about hot tents are:
- How do prevent fire in the tent while using a stove?
- 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. 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.
