Can this Tarptent be converted to free standing?
Yes, it is free-standing with trekking poles of at least 140cm or at least 130cm in conjuctions with our trekking pole tip extenders. We also offer a stiff “Vertical Support Pole” (weight 4.75 oz/ 135g) which can be used horizontally in lieu of a trekking pole.
Does this Tarptent accommodate tall people (over 6 ft 3 in / 190.5 cm)?
Yes, the full floor length (88in / 223 cm ) is usable without running into an end wall.
Can I use this for winter?
The interior will be cool, but the structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading, especially if you support the arch pole with trekking or ski poles using the grommet system underneath the apex vents.
Do I need the optional condensation liner?
The liner is useful for cool, damp conditions or anywhere condensation is unavoidable.
Can I stuff the Double Rainbow to make it smaller?
Yes, if you remove the carbon fiber top strut. The strut and folded arch pole can be stored separately.
Are there any additional pullout points for extra staking?
Yes, there are additional pullouts on the arch sleeve and perimeter hem.
