The Notch is coming....
.TT Notch

This is a somewhat similar shelter to the SS1 (two poles,separate mesh inner,two doors and vestibules) but lighter and smaller.
On my backyard tests it looks like it will accommodate the taller hikers too.
(that is on a mock up because only Henry has had the real thing...)
More head and foot room than the Moment .
Originally it was called the X 1 because it is the Tarptent 10th anniversary shelter.
Happy 10th anniversary Henry!!!
Avaliable mid next month.
The "deal" here is that if you get in early you may get the chance to have one this year. The first run will be ready mid month

You are correct.
Methink there was some hanky panky going on between those two last winter.

26oz for the shelter and pegs, 4 oz for the two poles.

Looks top notch! I would want my pole handles to be up, and it looks like that could be done?

I like my Moment but want a little more headroom and a real double wall over a liner. The SS1 looked a little too big, quirky, and heavy but this seems IDEAL!

It looks like a TT Moment with trekking poles instead of the rainbow hoop pole.

We'll have to wait for the specs to be published.

I'd like to see it (and the Stratosphire) with a one piece pole like the Moment. Well............maybe. How is this different from the Stratosphere? Weight? Floor shape?

Setup on 11/21/2011 07:47:35 MST Print View

When you set this up, can you set it up with the inner tent already clipped in and kind of do it all at once or do you have to set up the fly then clip the inner tent underneath?

Weight of fly and low pitch. on 11/21/2011 07:58:28 MST Print View

Can anyone tell me how much the fly weighs on it's own?

Also can the shelter be pitched low to the ground for stormy and wet/windy conditions?

Great work. I don't need another shelter but I'm already wanting this!

Tyler - yes you can. The outer fly pitches first keeping the inner completely dry!

I really like the look of this as a summer shelter.
Any info on the 'above head' clearance when lying down?

I updated the dimensions graphic to better show the head/foot clearance.

You might need to reload the page if the old graphic still shows up.

Setup Steps on 11/21/2011 11:13:21 MST Print View

How would this compare to the ease of setup of the Moment? If you had to describe it in generalized steps would it be kinda like this? Basically one extra step?

- take out of bag
- thread cross pole
- stake ends
- tighten

- take out of bag
- stake ends
- put poles in
- stake flaps
