The NEW Mont Moondance 1:
More space, lighter fabrics

Mont Moondance 1 image
The revised Mont Moondance 1 has landed! And, it comes with significant changes.

The new Moondance has an improved floorplan that creates more internal space for your gear. Instead of a rectangular floor plan, the new Moondance has an additional corner along the back length of the tent.

What's impressive about this change is that the clever people at Mont have achieved it without any increase in weight. In fact, by our calculations, the tent is actually lighter, at 1.54kg.

Other changes include lighter inner materials.

Come in-store and check it out for yourself.
