Notes:

  2. We do not offer a Seam Sealing service for Polyurethane Coated shelters.
  3. Dyneema Cuben Fiber shelters do not need to be seam sealed.

Purchase Options

No: Choosing this option indicates that you would like to seam seal the shelter on your own.  We sell the appropriate products on our website as outlined in the chart above. 

Yes: Choosing this option indicates that you are paying an additional fee ($20 or $30 depending on the shelter) to have Six Moon Designs seam seal the shelter for you.

 

Over the years, Six Moon Designs has seam sealed thousands of shelters, so we know a thing or two about the process. If you lack the time or space to properly perform this task, you may consider us as an option. I will say there's nothing like seam sealing your own tent then weathering a storm safe and dry.

Drying Time

We generally allow two days for the tents to cure before shipping. This time can vary depending upon heat and humidity. During warm summer days, curing can be completed in less than 24 hours. On those cold humid winter days, drying can take longer.

Procedures

To seam seal our shelters, we lay them out on a large table and the sealant is injected directly using a bottle with an applicator tip. We have found this method to be effective at penetrating the seams and will provide excellent water protection.

Once all of the seams have been coated, the shelter is then stored to dry in our drying rack. Unfortunately this is the step that’s most likely to cause problems, as hanging shelters can come into contact with each other.

This shelter to shelter contact can allow for some sealer to be deposited on exposed areas of adjacent shelters. This results in a cosmetic issue and in no way compromises the integrity of the sealed seams. If you wish to avoid this potential contact on your shelter, it is recommended that you seal your own tent.

Guarantee

If you purchase a shelter from us and are dissatisfied with the appearance of the seam sealing, you are free to return the unused shelter back to us. You have the option of a full refund or new non-seam sealed shelter. If you select the non-seam sealed option, you will be refunded the difference between the original price of the seam sealing and the shipment of the new tent.

26 oz - 740 g Solo Tent - Uses 49" Pole

The Lunar Solois now constructed with 100% Silicone coated Polyester material reducing fabric stretch and packed volume.  The Canopy is constructed from 20D material while the floor utilizes a more durable 40D weave.  We now also use reflective material in the main and corner guy lines.

Seam Sealing Service*

*To completely repel water, shelters need to have sealer applied to the seams before use.
*Shelters including a seam sealing service may not ship immediately.
  • The Lunar Solo's distinctive low hexagonal shape easily spills the wind no matter the direction. Short, steeply sloped sides, handle snow or high winds with ease. A generous canopy covers a 26 sq. ft. sleeping area plus 8.5 sq. ft. of vestibule storage. The 49" peak height, set in the middle of the tent maximizes room for sitting and taking care of chores.

    The sleeping area is a surrounded 6-inch deep bathtub floor, topped by 6 inches of mesh. This ensures excellent ventilation while keeping you separated from low canopy walls. This keeps you drier on those occasions when condensation forms on the canopy.

    The vestibule is set on the long side of the tent to maximize views and ventilation when fully open. Close it and you've got phenomenal protection from the worst storms.

    Like all our shelters it is designed to be pitched with adjustable trekking poles or with our fixed length aluminum or carbon fiber poles (sold separately).

    For detailed setup instructions, check out Lunar Solo - The Perfect Pitch.

    • Optimized Sleeping Area is oriented to maximize usable space, ventilation, and view. A peak height of 48 inches gives you plenty of headroom.
