Ron Moak's new Refuge tarptent on 02/04/2008 13:28:13 MST Print View

I noticed SixMoonDesigns.com has a new "Refuge" tarptent on sale for a "limited time only" for $200. Similar to the LunarDuo, but no floor, only one entrance, and slightly narrower. 27 oz.

Looks like it has a floor - I'd also be intersested in feedback from any users.

I thought it had a floor, too, until I looked at the comparison page: http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/products/ShelterCompare.asp

Maybe what we're seeing is the netting tucked under a sleeping pad.

Refuge floor on 02/04/2008 15:15:40 MST Print View

The website description for the refuge tent indicates it has a 30D Silnylon floor.

The comparison page just indicates it does not have a "bathtub" floor or floor choice (normal/ultralight).

I'm glad others are paying attention. Thanks for clarifying!

Refuge does have a floor! on 02/04/2008 15:24:38 MST Print View

The Refuge does have a floor. With this model we simply restricted it to the 30D siliicone fabric. It does not have a bathtub floor. For thoes interested in my thoughts on Ultralight Bathtub floors you can read a recent article I posted to my blog http://community.sixmoondesigns.com/blogs/.

Also the actual weight came in at 26 ounces and not the 27 ounces listed.

Bathtub floor info on 02/04/2008 15:36:37 MST Print View

It was worth getting my information wrong just to be directed to the blog about bathtub floors. Thanks, Ron!
