- Poles made of fiberglass.
- Excellent packed size.
- Incredible value.
What is the significance of this?
This is the most enormous tent in the MOON LENCE Camping Tents series, including ultralight dome-style tents. Due to the partial coverage fly that attaches to the tent’s corners via buckles and hooks, this is a fully freestanding tent. The lack of vestibules is a trade-off, but it has a few advantages:
- Finding your way is simple.
- This allows for two-sided windows.
- As a result, it is entirely self-contained.
- A lighter fly implies a smaller fly.
The framework of the tent is most straightforward to comprehend without the fly, so the image below depicts the inner tent and two dome poles:
The tent is not exceptionally tall, with a peak height of only 60 inches (152 cm) and a typical dome shape, so headroom is less impressive than usual. The layout is straightforward, with one room and one door shown above, each with a window on its upper portion and a separate window on the back.
If you add the fly, held up by one cross pole, you’re left with two tiny brims on both sides, safeguarding the windows and allowing you to use them mainly with mesh. The Moon Lence 8-Person Tent is a more giant extended dome-type tent from this brand that is also available on the site.
The image without the fly shows that the canopy possesses a lot of mesh, even though the lover area is water-resistant taffeta. They installed a large floor vent on the back side to ensure proper ventilation. The image below shows looking into the tent from inside, allowing you to see the vent. The following image depicts the vent from the outside.
As previously stated, the slope of the pole pulls the fly up on both sides, allowing for excellent views and eliminating the need for additional fly vents. This is another benefit of having such a superficial fly profile on both sides. So, no complaints here; this is a well-ventilated tent.
The materials used in the box are depicted in the image. There are 9 iron pegs and 4 guylines not pictured here.
The poles: There are only three of them, and they are shock-corded fiberglass. This is a moderately strong subject matter, but it is to be expected in such low-cost tents. The tent is attached to the poles via the standard pin and ring system at the corners and clips on the canopy.
This can all be done by a single person. The images below show some specifics:
The fabric: The fly and the walls are made of rugged 190T polyester with a PU coating for 1000 mm water and UV resistance. A more water-resistant rating is rarely required. A few tiny wall spaces and a lantern hook on the ceiling are inside.
Who is it intended for?
Weight-wise, the tent is so light that I included it in my list of the best backpacking 6-person tents. This claim is not reflected in my weight rating because I use a formula that evaluates weight about the area of protection. So you’ve seen what’s behind such a weight: the region is minimal, with no vestibules.
Packed size, the tent’s carry bag measures 16.5 x 6.1 x 6.1 inches (42 x 15.5 x 15.5 cm) when packed. This is a backpacking tent.
Capacity-wise, the declared capacity is 6 people; they even describe it as “spacious” and “roomy.” However, this tent has just 62.4 square feet (5.8 square meters) of safeguarded space. It can fit 6 pads on its floor, which measures 107.8 x 83.8 inches (274 x 213 cm).
As a result, they use the backpacking principle to determine capacity, but it makes sense to reduce it. In any case, if you’re looking for a family camping tent, this is for parents with one child and is also suitable for couples.
Seasonally and climate-wise, this tent is most appropriate for warm-weather summer camping or a maximum of two times a year. This is not intended for severe weather or high winds. You’d need one of these tents with a full-coverage fly in such conditions.
