Six Moon Designs Refuge 2 Person Tent 23.9 Oz!! (24.5 Oz with stuff sack)
Used only 4 times and is in superb condition and has been seam sealed. Seam sealing is included in the above weight numbers. One over night was through heavy rain and the tent was water tight and performed as expected. Two bonus lightweight line reliefs and liner locks are included (in the weight as well). No stakes or poles of course. The tent is FULLY functional with no damage and works fantastic. I just don't have any stakes or poles to set it up anymore.

This looks like a very nice tent. When it rained, was there any moisture from the lack of a bathtub floor? Seems like it has good ventilation but how was condensation?Aug 4, 2015 at 9:25 am #2218940
You are right it is a nice tent. In a standard set up it has great ventilation. The sides will typically end up 8 to 12 inches above the ground with the mesh sides slanting inwards to span the remaining 8 to 12 inches.
However in a good rain storm it can be lowered all the way to the ground or anywhere in between that to eliminate any splash in. You just sacrifice some headroom. I did exactly that during a very stormy and rainy night. We and our gear remained totally dry. There was some minor condensation on the tops and sides but it was indeed minimal and I wiped the bulk of it away with my dew rag.
I also slept in it one night in my backyard to check the seam sealing during a light to moderate rain and I left the sides raised for ventilation and experienced no water on the inside the next morning.Aug 4, 2015 at 11:14 am #2218961Lou ZBPL Member

This is a great tent. I used my old one in Sequoia/Kings in unforcasted snow, 1.5-2 feet, with about 20 mph winds. Sagged in snow, but just got out and cleared it a few times through the night and it was fine.
It is basically a Haven Tarp with perimeter bug netting and a single door.Aug 4, 2015 at 1:36 pm #2218999Brooks ClayBPL Member
Interested. I have to ask after being burned on another purchase… are there any holes, stains, damage to the tent? Did you seam seal with SilNet or with silicon/ mineral spirits?

The tent has no rips, holes, stains, excessive fraying, etc.
I did notice the stuff sack has a few faint brown (I believe they are brown. I'm color blind) spots. My guess it's a couple drops of coffee and they would come right out. However it's really minor. If it's important to you I could just see if they rinse out with some water, which I suspect they will.
For seam sealing, I followed a video on http://www.tarptent.com. I believe it recommended silicon mixed with mineral spirits but frankly I can't remember. However I did it as the video instructed. And like I said. It works :)Aug 4, 2015 at 8:10 pm #2219075Brooks ClayBPL Member
