Who said 1 person tents had to be tiny and cramped? The Moondance 1 Tent kicks that idea out of the campsite with 25% more floor space than the average 1 person tent.

Description

The Moondance 1 Tent is a lightweight (only 1.5kg), fully seam-sealed, totally waterproof, 1 person tent that doesn't force you to camp cramped or exposed to the elements. Ideal for any bike-packer, bushwalker or adventure traveller looking for the best, most liveable, 1 person tent on the market.

The Mont Moondance 1 has 25% more internal floor area than the average 1 person tent. A 30cm wide 220cm long triangular expansion opposite the doorway provides waterproof internal space for your clothes, pack & accessories. Totalling 2.3m2 of internal floor space makes the Moondance 1 an incredibly spacious 1 person tent. Steep walls at either end and a wide ridge pole across the roof provide a spacious interior ideal for waiting out poor weather in comfort.

As compact as ever the Moondance 1 Inner, Fly, Pegs & Repair Kit compress to only 13 x 28cm in the tent compression sack while the DAC pole set folds to only 42cm long.

By using ultra lightweight 15 denier fabrics on the ceiling of the inner we've saved weight without sacrificing weather protection on critical areas like the floor and fly. Waterproof to 10,000mm, the floor is 40 denier Nylon with a durable TPU laminate.

Mont Tents are sold fully seam sealed, waterproof and ready for rain straight out of the box. There is no need to seam seal your new Mont tent.

Specifications

10,000mm waterhead
WATERPROOF TO 10,000MM

This Mont Tent has a 10,000mm waterhead Nylon floor for superior protection in wet weather. Many competitor tents have only a 5000mm waterhead and some as low as 1200mm! With waterhead ratings as low as these, the pressure of you sitting in your tent can cause water to soak through from the wet ground!

DAC poles logo
DAC BRAND POLES

All Mont tents use DAC poles. DAC poles are selected for their high strength, exceptionally low weight, precision engineering and for DAC's market-leading environmental standards. DAC have been leaders in tent pole technology since 1991.

10,000mm WATERHEAD FLOOR

This Mont Tent has a 10,000mm waterhead Nylon floor for superior protection in wet weather. Many competitor tents have only a 5000mm waterhead and some as low as 1200mm! With waterhead ratings as low as these, the pressure of you sitting in your tent can cause water to soak through from the wet ground!

Most tents on the market use Poly-Urethane (PU) coating to waterproof their tent floors. This Mont tent uses Thermoplastic-Poly-Urethane (TPU) Lamination which is a far superior form of waterproofing. TPU is more durable, more resistant to chemical damage (sunscreen, oils, insect repellent etc), and is almost impervious to hydrolysis. Hydrolysis results in a permanent and irreparable de-lamination between the PU and the Nylon fabric; the floor is no longer waterproof. Laminated TPU floors are lighter, more waterproof and more durable than Coated PU floors.

INTERNALLY ACCESSIBLE VENTILATION
INTERNALLY ACCESSIBLE VENTILATION

Vents in a tent fly are very important to minimise condensation and to regulate air flow and temperature. Access to these vents from inside the tent is just as important particularly in poor weather; having to climb out of the tent in heavy rain to open or close the vents is not fun!

All Mont tents have vents in the fly that can be accessed from inside the tent. Mont tents with full-Nylon interiors also have large window vents in the doors for greater ventilation.

3 POINT ATTACHMENT GUY CORDS
3 POINT ATTACHMENT GUY CORDS

Quick, easy and only requiring one peg! Three point attachment guy cords hold the tent steady anchoring the tent by 3 reinforced points. When not in use a hook, loop and toggle system holds guy cords neatly and prevents tangling.

2 PIECE POLE SYSTEM
Moondance 2 piece pole system

Mont Moondance Tents use extremely strong and very lightweight 2-piece DAC Featherlite NSL pole systems. This pole system is incredibly easy to use and all Moondance tents can be set up easily and quickly even if you're on your own. DAC Featherlite NSL poles are selected for their exceptionally low weight, precision engineering, high strength and for DAC's market-leading environmental standards.

SEAM SEALED, WATERPROOF & READY FOR RAIN
SEAM SEALED, WATERPROOF & READY FOR RAIN

All Mont tents are sold tape-seam-sealed, waterproof and ready for rain. A clear polyurethane seam sealing tape is applied using a specialist machine at an exact speed, pressure and temperature. Mont seam sealing is lightweight, durable and totally waterproof. Seam sealing is essential to make a tent waterproof.

    Bike Tour Santiago to Punta Arenas with Mont Moondance 1

    I bought the tent new from ***** Palin's in Brisbane January 2020 to use it on a 40 day cycle tour down through Chile to the bottom of Patagonia. I had looked at a large number of ultralight options but none got close to the weight/internal space/price combination that this tent offered. I'd got used to a tent that was tiny and afforded no room to move or change clothes in for several long bike tours. Upgrading to this tent was remarkable. It is a little fiddly to set up especially the cross pole to secure the fly sheet roof in place with tabs and click on ties. I was initially anxious that this might be a point of weakness in storms or rain. That proved not to be the case. The tent was used for 40 days down to Punta Arenas in the South of Patagonia. The temperatures ranged from hot to windy and cold and the tent design worked really well. I recommend using the underground matt offered as well. Great tent and really good support service too from both Mont and ***** Palin.

    Mont Moondance 1

    This is an excellent little solo long distance trekking tent. I first used it in France in 2017 wandering solo along the high section of the GR10 in the French Pyrenees. I had the footprint and extra storm guys already attached and camped two nights in horizontal sleety/rainy conditions up near the base of Vignemale and over the pass high above the next valley on the way to Gavarnie. On both these nights, with all 12 pegs out, I had a very comfortable and secure night's sleep. I'm 75yrs old and this is one of the best tents I have ever had, and plan to test it again this year, 2018, on a trekking/camping trip around the Tour du Mont Blanc in the French/Italian/Swiss Alps.

    My favourite tent!

    Review for Moondance 1 Tent Mystic Blue I love this little tent, Its light and strong , has room for my gear, and Ive even used it snow camping several times. One night in the Snowy Mts the wind speeds got to 80kmh . The site was well sheltered and had a small snow wall around it for extra protection but the tent hardly rippled at all. I know its not designed for this but its a joy to use. If you make a full nylon version like your 2 person one this tent will rock! The only thing to watch out for is that you have to work out which way the single door will face. But you can sleep the other way round and it works OK... My 'go to' tent...

    Great Shelter for One!

    Review for Moondance 1 Tent Mystic Blue Great light little tent for when you are by yourself or your friends are sick of your snoring. Enough room to sit up and spread some gear around the edges. Liked the lantern hook and pocket for torch above my head. Great materials and construction. Color coded tabs are handy as its footprint is not symetrical. Easy to pitch quickly

    Review for Moondance 1 Tent Mystic Blue The ventilation is excellent with plenty of mesh and the fly vent no doubt helped. Not one drop of condensation on a few muggy nights in QLD and Northern NSW. The tent kept me dry without having to apply seam sealant. The foyer could be a bit larger however this obviously would increase the weight. A gear loop at the foot end of the tent would enable a short clothes line to be strung up.

    Great 1 person tent

    Review for Moondance 1 Tent Mystic Blue Brilliant little one person tent! Very waterproof even on the South Coast Track in Tasmania when it was accidently positioned in a ditch which turned into a very large puddle during the night! You can rely on this tent :)
