Yes! Please refer to the "how to seam-seal" video to see the full procedure.

You have several options for seam-sealing your Tarptent:

  • We offer seam-sealing kits ($6-$8) containing premix silicone, a foam brush, and a latex glove in the webstore.
  • We also offer seam-sealing as a service. Please note that seam-sealing is weather dependent and ordering this service may add a few days to the wait time.
  • You should be able to buy the necessary materials for seam-sealing at your local hardware store. An inexpensive product that works well is GE Silicone II clear sealer/glue. It is available as a squeeze tube in most US hardware stores or in our webstore.
  • Every Tarptent comes with a stuff sack, aluminum stakes+stake bag and the necessary guyline cording. The Cloudburst 3 also includes dual aluminum arch poles.

    Yes, we use “no-see-um” netting which stops bugs quite a bit smaller than mosquitoes.

     Yes, the fabric is waterproof, however the seams of the shelter need to be seam-sealed.

     Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet. We sell optional Tyvek groundsheets which are very tough and great for sleeping out or taking a break, but generally heavier than you need for floor protection on longer hikes, in most conditions. For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
