Welcome to LightHeart Gear

 All orders ship within 24 - 48 hrs of being placed.
U.S. Patent No. 8,555,908
LightHeart Gear tents are trekking pole supported shelters utilizing our patented support system. This allows the user to enjoy the full head room height of the tent, keeps the poles out of the way of the entry door, and maximizes space while minimizing weight. Trekking poles are inside the tent to protect them from the elements and night critters that like to chew on them.  For those who do not use trekking poles, we have adjustable aluminum tent poles which fold down to only 11 inches. Our tents are generously sized for the number of intended inhabitants – one person will find the Solo tent roomy, two people will find the Duo spacious, and "Six Footers' will find the SoLong 6 an ultra-light palace.

Our Guarantee
LightHeart Gear products are fully guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship. Items in new condition may be returned for any reason for a full refund or replacement within 30 days of purchase.  Tents must NOT have been set up outdoors to be eligible for a refund.

Seam Sealing Service
For an additional fee we will seam seal Silnylon tents for you. This is done with a liquid silicone based sealer. It is painted on, sometimes it is literally 'finger painted' on.  It is not always the neatest job, but the seams are liberally coated. Additionally, 5 stripes of silicone are painted on the floor to provide traction on sil-nylon floors. 

Tents needing repairs will need to be mailed back. Tents MUST be clean.  If you ship a dirty tent for repair, it will be mailed back without being repaired.  State law prohibits alterations/repairs on dirty items.
