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.

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.
The structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading with the optional 8 oz / 227 g crossing pole. The solid interior is recommended for cold winds or blowing snow.
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.
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.
Our Easton 6.3 series carbon fiber arch poles range from ½ - 2 oz ( 14 - 57 g) lighter than the comparable Easton aluminum 7075-T9 poles. The 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 carbon will be fine but otherwise aluminum is less worrisome.
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 Moment DW includes an arch pole (carbon or aluminum). An optional 8 oz / 227 g crossing pole for high winds and snow-loading can also be purchased.
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.
