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 servicePlease note that seam-sealing is weather dependent and ordering this service may add over a week to the wait time.

This shelter is designed to be used with trekking poles. An 8 oz / 227 g alternate pole set is also available for non-trekking pole users. It is also possible to suspend the structure from trees or other overhead supports.

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.

The structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading. The optional solid interior is recommended for cold winds or blowing snow.

Yes. The interior will widen to fit two standard width sleeping pads. The standalone fly will easily sleep two.

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:

  • 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 StratoSpire 1 is designed to be used with trekking poles, but an additional 8 oz / 227 g pole set is available for non-trekking pole users.

    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.
