The Six Moon Designs Refuge and Refuge X are the lightest two-person shelters by Six Moon Designs. The two tents are identical in size and design, with only minor differences in guyline and stake adjustments and a slight difference in vestibule coverage. The largest difference between these tents is in the tent body fabric - the $260 Refuge is made of silnylon and weighs just over 1.5 pounds, while the $400 Refuge X is made with a Cuben Fiber body and weighs under 1 pound.
Both single-wall tents offer excellent usable space and plenty of room for two large hikers. They use trekking poles or optional carbon fiber poles for support and have an integrated, non-bathtub floor.
