Mont Moondance vs Hyperlite Ultamid | Hiking Tent Comparison and Review
Dom reviews and compares his two favourite tents, the Moondance 1 from Mont and Hyperlite Mountain Gear's UltaMid 2. He weighs ups the pros and cons of an ultralight hiking tent vs. a lightweight hiking tent including considerations like pack size, weight and internal floor space.
The Mont Moondance 1 is a spacious 1 person tent that doesn't force you to camp cramped or exposed to the elements, with 25% more floor space than the average 1 person tent. The Moondance is fully seam-sealed, totally waterproof, ideal for any bike-packer, bushwalker or adventure traveller looking for a lightweight, liveable 1 person tent. Weighing in at 1.5kg with 2.31m2 of internal floor space, the Moondance 1 won't slow you down on the trails
The UltaMid 2 from Hyperlite Mountain Gear provides you with a safe sanctuary in the most extreme weather. This pyramid-style two-person shelter has been thoroughly tested over time and can be pitched high off the ground or tight to the ground. The remarkable weight of only 530g means this shelter is a welcome reduction to any kit's overall mass. It can be pitched high off the ground or tight to the ground and can be set up quickly and easily with adjustable trekking poles or suspended from the central peak. The UltaMid 2 is made from Dyneema Composite Fabrics and is built to outlast silnylon materials many times over.
