Every Tarptent needs to be seam-sealed before use!
- We offer seam-sealing kits ($6-$8) containing premix silicone, a foam brush, and a latex glove which can be ordered below in "Related Products."
- An inexpensive product that we recommend is GE Silicone II clear sealer/glue. It is available as a squeeze tube in most US hardware stores or in our webstore.
- We also offer seam-sealing as a service. Please note that seam-sealing is weather dependent and ordering this service may add over a week to the wait time.

The crossing poles are recommended for harsher weather conditions where heavy wind and/or snow is expected. For general use, the crossing poles are not typically needed.
Yes, if using the optional crossing poles.
No, the two parts clip together and setup or takedown as a single unit. It is easy to unclip the interior from inside if desired.
When used with the optional crossing poles, the Scarp 1 can handle substantial snow-loading and wind exposure. The solid interior is recommended for cold winds or blowing snow.
The solid interior is noticeably warmer and gives additional protection against the wind and cold. The white fabric of the solid interior does block the view when laying down in the shelter. We recommend using the "no-see-um" mesh interior, which provides better airflow and visibility, unless you expect to encounter cold weather conditions. The two interiors are interchangeable.
Yes! Please refer to the How to seam-seal video to see the full procedure.
You have several options for seam-sealing your Tarptent which are available for purchase in our webstore:
Every Tarptent comes with a stuff sack, aluminum stakes+stake bag and the necessary guyline cording. The Scarp 1 includes an aluminum arch pole. Crossing poles for snow and high wind are also available for purchase.
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.
