CAN THIS TARPTENT BE CONVERTED TO FREE-STANDING?
Yes, you can purchase an optional 8 oz / 227 g crossing pole which allows the Moment DW to be free standing and also gives support for strong winds and snow.
DOES THIS TARPTENT ACCOMMODATE TALL PEOPLE? (over 6 ft 3 in / 190.5 cm)
For sleeping, yes. It’s almost impossible to run into end walls when laying down. Sit-up room is best for people closer to 6 ft/ 183 cm.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HYBRID CARBON AND ALUMINUM ARCH POLE?
The hybrid carbon poles have some carbon sections and some aluminum sections depending on the stress the section experiences. Our Easton 6.3 series hybrid carbon fiber arch poles are 1 oz / 26 g lighter than the comparable Easton aluminum 7075-T9 poles. The hybrid carbon poles are noticeably stiffer and thus have less flex under wind or snow load. Carbon poles will go from flexed to snapped whereas aluminum will go from flexed to bent. Carbon poles are more susceptible to damage due to abrasion and crushing (via rocks, feet, etc) and therefore require extra care. If you’re reasonably careful with gear, the hybrid carbon will be a stiffer pole overall but otherwise aluminum is less worrisome.
CAN I USE THIS FOR WINTER?
The structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading and high winds especially with the optional crossing pole. The optional solid interior is recommended for cold winds or blowing snow.
CAN I STUFF THE MOMENT DW TO MAKE IT SMALLER?
Yes, the 4 carbon fiber struts are easily removed from the fly and packed with the arch pole.
WILL THE MOMENT DW FIT A LONG/WIDE SLEEPING PAD?
Yes, the Moment DW can fit a 76 in x 25 in / 193 cm x 64 cm sleeping pad. Scroll through the photos above to see it in action.
ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL PULLOUT POINTS FOR EXTRA STAKING?
Yes, there are additional pullouts on the arch sleeve and perimeter hem.
