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.
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.
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.
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.
The Haven Bundle is designed so that the NetTent hangs from the tarp rather than be supported directly by the poles. This configuration allows the tarp to be set up first or taken down last, keeping the inside of the tent dry in rainy conditions. If desired the Haven Combo can also be stored clipped together for even faster setup and takedown.
Utilizing trekking poles for support, or our optional collapsible poles, the Haven Bundle has near-vertical sidewalls, further maximizing internal space. Dual tabs on either side of the canopy allow the Haven Tarp to be hung from a line between two trees, eliminating the need for poles altogether.
The two-pole design allows for a 48" wide canopy offering tremendous amounts of headroom. The peak is also offset toward the head, raising the canopy further from one's face and moving the headroom to provide a more natural sitting area.
The Haven Bundle is equipped with two entrances and two vestibules providing convenience and storage space for both parties. The streamlined design provides maximum protection for minimum weight.

The tent shipped immediately, and I received it in time for a last minute trip. I’m thankful for the outstanding customer service. The setup was quick and straight forward in both configurations. I had mixed weather on the AT, and I found it convenient to leave the NetTent connected to the tarp. Set up took minutes. We found ourselves on the top of a mountain with stiff and gusty winds and heavy horizontal rain, and the tent remained taut and dry. Others did not. I didn’t have time to seam seal, but the tarp didn’t leak a drop. The quick release attachment points on both half’s of the zippered vestibule allowed for quick adjustments as the wind shifted and conditions changed during the night. I’m six feet tall and the inside seemed huge especially when using the pull panels. The offset peak made sitting up comfortable. 100% of the interior floor area was usable, and the vertical sides of the NetTent gave my enough room to set up for cooking outside while still protected by the vestibule. I’m impressed.
I used this tent while hiking in Patagonia and on the Lycian Way (western Turkey). We lived out of this thing for weeks at a time. The tent pitches very easily and quickly. We are used to heavier 3-season tents and we found no reduced level of comfort with this ultra light. This tent was 100% perfect on dry nights and during light rain storms. However this tent had a little trouble holding up to the intense wind gusts (70+ mph) we experienced while hiking the back country in Torres del Paine, Chile. We found that there was ample breeze when both sides were held open. My wife hates buggies and the netting kept us bite free. ALSO, we kept the net tent connected to the tarp at all times for faster setup. You can see the tent being set up here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CirA-6rlYZk
You must know the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island. It was built in 1907 to facilitate the rescue and evacuation of shipwrecked along this coastline of the Pacific Cemetery. It is now part of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and is often considered one of the best hiking trails in the world. We decided to go as light as possible. Six Moon Design has been one of the best companions for this. The Haven Tarp and his Net have managed to provide a really comfortable shelter for two people during this WCT. This tarp-tent and really very compact and once installed you regale a palace. I have no contraindications to make on this product ... only come here to tell you that you can trust this company as in this equipment. Good light hike.
A real head shaker.
Hi Greg, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The shelter dimensions are shown under the product images in our layout diagram for each shelter. These include the outer tarp dimensions as well as the inner net tent dimensions. We are working on ways to have this information more readily accessible and can add it to our specifications. Thanks!
