[FS TAS]Moment DW lightwgt solo tent $490 <1kg

This is a catch-and-hold-on-for-months-and-change-my-mind-often-then-release item. I don't need 3 solo tents at this point, and it's too similar to what I already have. So it's back up for sale. $490 including postage in Australia.

Almost new condition, only used for one night.* Double walled (DW) solo tent, made by Tarptent, with solid inner (mesh at the top of the walls). Very quick and easy to pitch with just 2 pegs in its standard form, hence its name (Moment).

It comes professionally seam-sealed, includes a tyvek groundsheet, 2 pegs, and the crossing pole for free-standing option with increased snow-load and wind capacity. Storm-worthiness can also be increased by adding guy lines to attachment points partway down each pole sleeve, and at 4 points around the base of the fly

This is not the 2019 version that's now on the Tarptent website. Current cost of that new version with the solid inner, seam-sealing + tyvek + delivery to Australia = $667AUD.

Some features I love are:
- the diagonally opposite doors, so no matter which way the wind is blowing, one vestibule will be more sheltered. The whole tent can be very quickly re-positioned if you really want to.
- integral pitch (both fly and inner together), but you can take the inner down separately if you want to. But I find with my Scarp 1 tent (same style of inner), even if I pack up the tent with the fly soaked from rain and condensation, the inner floor is usually dry when I pitch it again that night. If not, I wipe up a couple of drips.
- the easily enlarged vestibules - slide the inner in for e.g. (very careful) cooking, slide it back for more room inside for sleeping.
- the stable Tarptent 'pitchloc' corners
- the option of using it as a free-standing tent with the extra pole.

This version has been a popular tent - one of the lightest double-walled tents around at about 960 gm with pole and 2 pegs. The fly of the new version comes down closer to the ground - less likely to get rain splash, but likely to get more condensation (like my Scarp). Going by my Scarp, when I have the door of the fly open, I don't think the rain splash would be a big deal with the solid inner.

*Camped in for one mild night by previous owner, pitched again for photos. Put up 3 times on the carpet in the garage with the groundsheet by me.

My photos don't show a very good pitch as I didn't use pegs inside (!). I also took some photos to try to show how much room there is with a regular NeoAir Xtherm mattress, but it's hard to see. There's a total of about 30cm spare between the ends of the mat and the ends of the inner.

Great tent. I have one, mine is a bit tired, but still has plenty of nights left , used it on the PCT.
Cant justify buying another tent as I just bought a Tarptent Notch LI.
Just a recommendation.

:lol: That's 2 or 3 of the same tents we've had. Maybe I should get a redraw on my mortgage and get a Notch Li too...
Thanks for the recommendation for the Moment. :)
