There has been very good response via PM. Thanks. Several people asked if I would be willing to split up the package. Yes I will entertain that possibility. So if anyone wants to make an offer for either component please let me know.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks.

below is what John sent me last night regarding weight


the pyranet weighs 12.6 ounces in its stuff sack including all guy-lines and shock cord. I am sure you can trim 1 +ounce by shortening the shock cords and also by removing 4 line locks that I do not think are needed.
The Luna 2 weighs 15.2 oz in its stuff sack including all guy lines and line locks.

Since you asked about your height the dimensions of the mid are 64 x 106. I usually set it up at 58 inches but I would say the range would be 56 to 60.

The inner net dimensions are 30x90.

Cuben mid and inner tent on 09/09/2013 10:23:05 MDT Print View

This tent needs a new home.

Lowered price to reflect deletion of paypal fee inclusion.

Looking for $535 including shipping in CONUS. Paypal gift option. That is a 18% discount for a barely used light weight set up. No waiting!

If you want to buy the tarp or net tent individually, due to increased shipping costs, the prices would be:

Luna 2, pole jack, shipped: $345
Pyranet 1, tyvek, shipped: $215

Thanks for looking.

Please PM if interested.

Reduction to $500 on 09/22/2013 14:33:01 MDT Print View

Reduced price. There won't be any further reductions. I will just continue to use it if it does not sell. This price is about a 25% reduction from new. $500 shipped CONUS.

That's a beautiful pyramid. Someone should snap it up. These style of mids are the best solo shelters.

Small discount and no warranty on 09/22/2013 20:24:52 MDT Print View

It is a beautiful mid, no question about it. Having said that, I'd rather spend $20 more and get a brand new Luna 2 with a full year's warranty.

correction to prior post on 09/23/2013 04:26:16 MDT Print View

If I could buy a new tent with warranty for $20 more than a used one I would too. But that is not the case with this tent.

While I do appreciate the fact that someone can buy a Luna 2 tarp for less money than I paid it would be $355 for the gray color not $365 for the green. That is only $10 less than I spent. Same goes for the Pyranet 1. The new cost today is the same as what I paid. I just checked the site. Someone could buy one for less but again it would not be the upgraded model I bought with the cuben floor, cuben sides(3), T zip, and lighter no-see-um mesh. Can't forget about shipping as well.

So let's be clear...one cannot buy the same spec for $520 like was inferred. My cost was, and would still be today, about $630 (includes tyvek at $20) so call it $610. I am offering the set up for $500 which is a $110 decrease from what you would pay today for this exact tent.

I agree that the warranty is expired. That is the same situation with many items bought used. As I said in the original post there are no defects or wear on the tent.

While the post was factually correct...you can buy a Luna 2 and Pyranet 1 for less money... it should also have stated that it would be a tent set up with different and, in my opinion, lesser specs.

Thanks for looking.
