Yes, it is free-standing with trekking poles of at least 140cm or at least 130cm in conjuctions with our trekking pole tip extenders. We also offer a stiff "Vertical Support Pole" (weight 4.75 oz/ 135g) which can be used horizontally in lieu of a trekking pole.
The structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading, especially if you support the arch pole with trekking or ski poles using the grommet system underneath the apex vents .
Yes, the full floor length (88in / 223 cm ) is usable without running into an end wall.
Yes! Please refer to the "how to seam-seal" video to see the full procedure.
You have several options for seam-sealing your Tarptent:
Every Tarptent comes with a stuff sack, aluminum stakes+stake bag and the necessary guyline cording. The Double Rainbow includes an arch pole.
Yes, we use “no-see-um” netting which stops bugs quite a bit smaller than mosquitoes.
Yes, the fabric is waterproof, however the seams of the shelter need to be seam-sealed.
Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet. We sell optional Tyvek groundsheets which are very tough and great for sleeping out or taking a break, but generally heavier than you need for floor protection on longer hikes, in most conditions. For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
