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?
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.
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.

This week’s jaunt saw me in Tasmania’s north and west spending some quality time in our magnificent Myrtle Beech forests. The first stop was Upper Quaile Falls, a place I had not visited before. Despite the track in leading through some previously logged forest, there were still some magnificent trees to be seen and the falls had plenty of water.
Back to the car and onward to a location west of Cradle Mountain, the Vale of Belvoir. This area was purchased by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy in 2008 and consists of a limestone valley roughly 10 km long by 2 km wide. Lying at an altitude of 800 metres it is Tasmania’s only sub-alpine limestone valley.
