Included items

Your net-tent comes with the following rigging included. The guyline and tensioners come pre-installed. The rest is left to you to cut and install to your individual needs.
Note: Partnering this with a Cirriform Tarp? Please see the bottom of the page for suggested cord lengths.

  • 1/16" Shockcord: 20 ft | 6 m
  • 3/32" Shockcord: 3 ft | 0.9 m
  • Mitten hooks: 12
  • Guyline: 15ft | 4.57m
  • Guyline grommets: 2
  • Lineloc tensioners: 2 (pre-installed)
Installation Process

There are no set rules, but at each location, we like to connect the net-tent to the tarp with a length of shock cord and a mitten hook.

  • At one end of the cord, tie a loop. We like to use a simple overhand loop knot.
  • At the other end of the cord, tie on a mitten hook. We like to use a clinch knot.
  • At the end with the loop, attach it to the webbing loop on the net-tent using a girth hitch. To do this, pass the loop part way through the webbing loop, then pass the mitten hook through the side of the loop poking through the webbing. Pull the mitten hook end to tighten everything up.
Locations/Descriptions

It's not necessary to install cords at all locations, but with more locations secured, the better the net-tent will keep its intended shape (especially in lower pitches), and the less it will move around in wind.

  • Peaks (2): If the distance between the tarp and net-tent remains fairly consistent night to night, we like to connect the net-tent peak to the tarp using the 3/32" shockcord. If your tarp pitch is not consistent, for example if you sometimes pitch your tarp at different heights, you might be better off tying a mitten hook to the end of the guyline installed at the peak and adjusting the length using the tensioner.
  • Bottom of tub (4): We like to secure the bottom corners of the tub using a length of 1/16" shock cord and mitten hook to connect the the tips of the triangles (at the tub's corners) to the stakes used to secure the tarp's corners. We either clip the mitten hook to the end of the tarp's guyline at the stake, or to shorten it, wrap the shockcord around the stake and clip it back to the floor or some other location. Alternatively, you might use some minimal stakes to secure the bottom of the tub. Stakes might be a better route if your setup would require excessively long connections, is not an a-frame setup, or if you're in a really windy environment. You can also forego securement entirely if you clip out the top of the tub as described below.
  • Top of tub (4): Securing the top corners of the tub is optional if you're securing the bottom (see above) and may not work with all setups. When using them, we'll connect them via shockcord and a mitten hook to the tarp's corner tie-outs. For low pitches, when the net-tent can't be pitched to its full height, tensioning the top of the tub and letting the rest drape helps the tub retain function. For very low pitches with the Cirriform Tarp, run the cord through the loop on the tarp's associated seam before clipping it to the tarp's tie-out.
  • Midpoints on tub's edges (2): Optional. Using these locations will improve security in wind. To use, connect them to associated locations on an a-frame tarp with the 1/16" shockcord and mitten hooks.
Pitching with the Cirriform Tarp?

If you plan to partner your net-tent with our 1P or 2P Cirriform Tarp, we suggest cutting your cords to the lengths outlined below.

1P Cirriform Tarp

  • Front peak: As short as possible
  • Rear peak: ~7" | 18 cm
  • Top of tub at front: 14" | 36 cm
  • Top of tub at rear: 12" | 30 cm
  • Bottom of tub at front: 21" | 53 cm
  • Bottom of tub at rear: 18" | 46 cm
  • Midponts on edge of tub: 12" | 30 cm

2P Cirriform Tarp

  • Bottom of tub at front: 23" | 58 cm
  • Bottom of tub at rear: 20" | 51 cm
  • Midponts on edge of tub: 14" | 36 cm

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: As a solo-operation, my capacity is very limited, and I can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. I only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help me to serve you better. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and makes hiring help much more feasible. I'm currently in the process of hiring, and hopefully you'll start seeing more products stay in stock a little bit longer soon.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.

Shipping Information
