The Moondance 1 Full Nylon (FN) Tent is a lightweight, fully seam-sealed, totally waterproof, sub-alpine 4 season, 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 1FN 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.
With a Full Nylon interior the Moondance 1FN allows you greater protection, particularly in cold and wintery conditions. Ultralight 15 denier rip-stop Nylon provides insulation in colder climates, more protection from condensation coming off the fly, and prevents wind-blown snow coming in if the weather really turns on you.
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.

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.
25% LARGER THAN THE AVERAGE 1 PERSON TENT
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. The Mont Moondance 1 Tent has an internal floor area of 2.3m2
25,000MM WATERHEAD FLOOR
This Mont Tent has a 25,000mm 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
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
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
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
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.
