Ron Moak's new Refuge tarptent
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.aspMaybe what we're seeing is the netting tucked under a sleeping pad.
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!
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.Ron

It was worth getting my information wrong just to be directed to the blog about bathtub floors. Thanks, Ron!
Ron's got a blog? SWEET!Oh, and the Refuge looks really cool too... ;)
