    Review: The New Moondance 2FN Tent by Geoff Murray

    "Last week I received a new tent from Mont, the full nylon version of the Moondance II. This tent has had a number of updates, the most obvious one being that the inner is now full nylon rather than mesh making it more suitable for use in less clement and colder weather. It also has a longer centre ridge pole and cross pole giving more internal room as well as now being symmetrical so pitching is simplified. It was very good to pitch before but is even easier now.The poles are also redesigned so that connecting the poles to the tent is simpler. All in all a really nice tent to use.
    So overall it has a bit more space inside and still only weighs a fraction over 2kgs.

    I walked up to one of my favourite Tasmanian highland areas and found a spot for the tent. Conditions were cool but the walking was much easier than my previous trip to this location a month or two ago when the snow was a metre deep.

    Towards evening the temperature started dropping so that by the time I was cooking my dinner it was a bit below zero degrees. Through most of the night it hovered around -3 but at some stage it took a dive and my little temperature sensor hanging off a tent guy outside shivered its way down to -8 :) I didn’t notice the temperature nicely snuggled into my Spindrift sleeping bag.
    In the morning it was good to see minimal condensation in the tent. It has some nicely placed ventilation points that seem to work really well.

    I was awake at 4.45 and shortly after I was walking across to a suitable vantage point for sunrise. Conditions were clear and cold and the grass and bushes were white with frost. After finding a couple of images there I worked my way up through a stand of Pencil Pines to a south facing cliff that still harboured a mini frozen waterfall. After a couple of hours I wandered back to my tent to cook breakfast and have a snooze before packing up and walking out.

    The location was sensational, the weather perfect and the tent performed superbly.

    What's the difference between Moondance 2 & Moondance 2 FN Tents?

    Posted by Will 0 Comment

    Product spotlight

    The Moondance 2 has been a favourite tent in the Mont range for many years. It is a lightweight, 3 season tent with a totally waterproof fly, an extremely waterproof tub floor and a mesh interior with excellent ventilation to keep you comfortable in 3 seasons.

    But what is the difference between the Moondance 2 and the Moondance 2FN?

    What's the difference between Moondance 2 & Moondance 2 FN Tents?

    The Moondance 2-FN is a new addition to the Mont tent range and differs in one small but important way from the standard Moondance 2 Tent. Rather than a mesh interior the FN has a Full Nylon (FN) interior to provide greater protection in 4 seasons; cold, wet, windy conditions.

    Both tents have internally accessed roof vents, and the FN version also has double doors of Nylon and Mesh to allow excellent ventilation if the weather is warmer.

    Both use the highest quality DAC Featherlite NSL poles, both have a 10,000mm waterproof floor, and both have dual vestibules and doors.

    Learn more about the Moondance 2 and Moondance 2-FN tent models.

    Please note, we do not recommend the Moondance 2-FN Tent for alpine and/or blizzard conditions, while it will provide ample protection in mild snow you should not rely on it for alpine and/or blizzard conditions.
