The Haven is a shaped tarp that is designed to provide the maximum amount of protection for minimum weight. Its dual-pole design with 48" (122 cm) wide canopy provides a tremendous amount of headroom. The wide canopy creates nearly vertical sidewalls. This, in turn, translates to more usable space within the tarp and less of a chance of brushing up against the side walls. To create a perfect bundle, the Haven can be paired with the Haven NetTent to form a fully enclosed, two-person, double-walled shelter with a bathtub floor.
*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 apex is offset slightly toward the head of the tent. This creates steeper walls at the head raising the canopy further from your face and sets the peak to the more natural position when sitting.
The Haven can be set up using your trekking poles or our optional carbon fiber poles. 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.
The Haven is designed to be mated with the Haven NetTent. Together they form a luxurious sized double-wall shelter at a mere 32 ounces (.9 k).
Most tarp / NetTent combos on the market today require the NetTent to be set up first, followed by the tarp. Typically the poles are placed inside of the NetTent, making them easy to bump into during the middle of the night. This kind of setup makes it impossible to keep your NetTent dry when setting up or taking down your shelter in the rain.
The Haven / NetTent combo is designed so that the NetTent hangs from the tarp. This configuration allows the tarp to be set up first or taken down last under rainy conditions. Your NetTent will remain dry and safely secure in your pack.

My son and I used it on the CT with a Tyvek ground cloth and Boreas Bivies. It was easy to set up. I replaced the two door stakes with longer round aluminum stakes for improved holding. The 4 piece carbon poles are strong and incredibly light although they will bow a little on a tight pitch. It was very rainy and we stayed warm snd dry. This is a light and compact solution for weather protection for two. It would be luxurious for one but I would recommend a single tent or tarp for one. I was pleased with the quality, the quick turn around on ordering and the relatively low cost especially given the low weight.
I just returned from an 11 night 90+ Mile backpacking trip at Philmont. I knew my single wall Six Moons Lunar Solo was not a good choice for the monsoons so I purchased a Haven Bundle for the trip. The Haven bundle was an excellent tent to have. Sets up and comes down in just a few minutes and stood up to the New Mexico monsoons and winds wonderfully. With the optional carbon fiber poles and an aftermarket 6L stuff sack it was still barely 2 lbs. It’s now my first option for backpacking by far!
Set up is tight, so no flapping in the wind. The 2-3 inch air gap between the tarp and net tent removes any risk of contact wicking even during heavy rains and was tough enough to stand up to hail. The tyvek footprint was a bit noisy, but worth it for the durability in the rocky Cimmaron mountain soil.
I had to pack it wet a few mornings, but it dried out quickly when set up the next day.
Having doors on both sides allowed me to set up anywhere and ensure easy entry and the head of the tent facing the optimal direction.
Use the head and foot pull out loops! The few extra inches makes a big difference.
If you’re going backpacking and need an ultralight and durable tent, this is the one!
There are very few things that I could write that would do this tent justice. First I am a grandfather who is 6'4" - meaning big and old. This tent which was purchased to lighten my load performed brilliantly. I recently took this on a Father-Son backpacking trip in the Catskills in NY. The weather varied - the first night was extremely windy - so windy that the noise kept the whole camp up - think that trees would come down any minute. The second day was the opposite - 92 degrees and still. The Haven bundle performed flawlessly on both accounts. Not only did the tent keep me dry on the wet night (even though I had to set up in the rain), but it did not flap about in the wind as some of the other tents and tarps. On the second day, when it was so hot, the tent had such good ventilation as to be quite cool that night.
The tent packs tight - it is easy to set up - and is cavernous. I was a little concerned about the width (44 inches) which is narrower that my current free-standing tent. But because the walls are straight up, there is more moving around room. the same is true for the tie-outs (which I used both nights).
the only thing that I have to work - out is that the bathtub floor is as slippery as an ice rink. This has nothing to do with the design or the craftsmanship but is caused by the material used. I have some ideas - but any more would be very welcome
Overall this is easily a 10/10.
I found the Haven Bundle to be priced reasonably and a high quality shelter system that’s easy and enjoyable to use.
Perfect compromise between weight and durability. Net tent has room for my partner and I plus our 50lb dog. So easy to set up and stays tight through windy arizona spring nights (40mph gusts). I set it up with the head facing a tree to use the central tie out that provides some extra headroom with the included utility cord. Being able to open both sides is huge. We can set up camp twice as fast and it feels much more spacious because of the double vestibule. Great work six moon!
