We make The Deuce of Spades and MoonLight tents • Order A MoonLight | TheTentLab

• Since the 2020 tent selling season was shot to heck, we're having a sale on some of our tents!

We have two new tents this year: the MoonLight UL2 and the MoonLight 2+. Here's the gist:— Like all our tents they have our signature features: polyester fabrics, no FR chemicals or fluorocarbons, two doors and two vestibules, really vertical walls, EyePole architecture, adjustable stake loops, pre-rigged guylines in pouches, lots of vents, lots of big pockets…and so on.

— The MoonLightLight UL2 is our lightest tent, shaving a little here and a little there to make it more efficient than the MoonLight 2. It has an asymmetrical design: tapered toward the foot (so heads go at the big end) and has a big two-pullout vestibule one side and a regular one-pullout vestibule on the other. It's minimum weight is four and a half pounds and it comes closer to other "2-person" tents in size but feels larger because of the steep walls. We think it's one of the more weather-worthy freestanding ultralight tents on the market (the wind tunnel video is coming). UL2 photo gallery is here.
— The MoonLight 2+ is a huge 2-person tent, weighing 6 pounds 3 oz (minimum weight). It's exactly what you would expect if you took our MoonLight 3+ or 4+ and made it fit two people. The floor is
8ft long inside (just like the 3+ & 4+), it's 58" wide and it has our usual steep walls – it's wonderfully, luxuriously BIG. It also uses the same 13.55mm poles as the bigger tents, so it's monstrously strong - completely stable in 40+ mph winds in all directions (video coming but it's pretty boring, we didn't test over 40mph so it just sits there).
A little more info is here.

ORDERING


The MoonLights are usually available to order two ways: as a REGULAR order where we ship it immediately or as a PREPAID order that ships some months later (and, YES, patience is sometimes required - delivery times are our best estimates) .

Because we are a small business and the tents are produced in batches, both these methods have specific timeframes and limits.

Why is there such a big difference in price between prepaid and regular ordering?

Very simple. When you make a prepaid order, you are literally financing your own tent to be made. A very high percentage of what you pay goes directly to the factories. I make what amounts to a small fee for designing the tent, managing the production, and everything else. A non-prepaid tent is one that I’ve bought as inventory, so the price is regular retail. We think it’s kind of a cool business model. Very populist. Super efficient. And it brings these exotic, high performance tents down into the purchasing range of many more people.

Order Questions Answered:

"Can I cancel and get a refund on my order?" - Yes, of course. You can cancel your order full a full refund at any time before it's shipped.
"Can I return the tent for a refund if it's still in brand new condition?" - Yes, of course. You can get a refund for the full value of the tent (but not the shipping) if you return the tent within a month and our inspection agrees that the tent is still in like-new condition.

We're the closest thing to a chemical-free tent

All our tents have no FR chemicals or fluorinated ("teflon") water repellency treatments. They're as chemical-free as we know how to make. That said, new tents do have a faint "milky" odor that goes away quickly with use (from the polyurethane when it's new). If you're not especially sensitive, you wouldn't even notice it. But, if you like, you can give the tent a wash to make it just plain squeaky clean (unlike some, there are no coating durability issues with washing these tents).

Footprints - IN STOCK
footprint size
US shipping is a flat $4 for footprints. Note that I have to calculate international postage on a case by case basis - it's usually $13.80 or $23.50 depending on the model and where it's going.
Note that US customers will see no difference in shipping cost between buying a footprint with a tent or separately. International customers end up paying $8-$10 more for separate purchase just because it's not in a box with a heavier item (a tent).

Note for customers in Canada: CA will charge you VAT/duty of about 1/4th of the declared value.
Note for customers in the UK: you will be charged VAT/duty of about 1/3rd of the declared value.
