I love the look and idea of these systems.
The only room for improvement would be increased burn time on the stoves.
Being warm and able to dry out is what extends a hunt.

Good luck to all this year.

I have the Luna 6 but do not run a stove. It would be tough to fit 3 guys with gear and a stove. 2 guys with gear would be perfect.

So I called Seekoutside today to ask them about the difference between the Redcliff and the 6 man Tipi.. Dude assured me that the Redcliff would be perfect for 3 guys, packs and a stove.. 4 guys easy without a stove.. He said the 6 man tipi would be like the Taj Mahal for 3 dudes, a stove and gear..
    I think after all this great discussion I'm going to go with the Redcliff as its a bit lighter and easier to pitch than the 6 man tipi (per the the Seekoutside guy),  Like I said earlier it'll likely be used by me and my brother and a 3rd guy from time to time. So the lighter weight and easier pitch will suit me a little better in the long run I think. I'm okay with being a little cozy when the 3rd guy joins us for a hunt from time to time.. I'll let y'all know how it ends up going.. It'll be awhile though, as I'm headed to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand for a few months of sun while all my WA friends enjoy the rainy winter.... Enjoy!
    Thanks for all the input here though! Definitely helped me out and actually changed up my plan of what to get. When spending almost a grand on a backcountry tent this place definitely helps! Thanks again!

Where you set the tent up can change the temps quite a bit.  If it isn't going to be windy, I set up under healthy trees with a lot of canopy above.  Good for quite a bit of heat vs being out in a meadow, especially on a clear night.

Sizing depends on use also - if just sleeping quarters you dont need much.  If 3 guys want to eat lunch outa the rain or kick back by the stove in the evenings then an 8 man for 3 guys will just do the job.
