Weights with trekking poles on 03/25/2014 20:54:26 MDT Print View

Since you don't wish to carry trekking poles, the Moment DW is the lightest of the Tarptent options, plus it has the advantage over the Contrail of being double wall.

Moment DW -> 34 oz
Contrail 27.5 + 7.5 -> 35 oz
Notch 26 + 15 -> 41 oz

At Tarptent we have solid "substitute" poles at 4 oz each for the Contrailor Notch.
They are 0.490in / 12.4mm in diameter (45" high for the above)
Under Extras, second page "Vertical Support Poles" ($14 each)
See the comparison with the standard poles :

Notch... on 03/25/2014 21:55:02 MDT Print View

Notch 27.5 + 3.8 -> 31.3 (Seam sealed, semi-solid inner with extra guy-outs)

My poles (Henry's standard offering) are only 3.8 oz a set.
