Does anyone know where one could buy Quest Tents? I can't find a catalog, web address or any pictures of these tents. I am particularly interested in the Trekker model.

Thanks for your response guys. They were originally made and sold by a company know as NorthPole, but they have gone belly up, I think. Anyway, I'll keep looking.

Northpole is a large Korean manufacturer of cheap tents for virtually all of the big box stores like KMart and Wal-Mart. Their tents are now made in China. They are far from "belly up."

FYI, We do not answer questions about parts for any of these tents. See the FAQ.

They also make(or at least made) tents for Columbia as well. I am not sure if this is still the case being Columbia is now affiliated with Mountain Hardwear.

The tent below was produced by North Pole(Columbia Cougar Flats II:)

The one thing I admire about Northpole is that they never hide the fact that their tents are made by them. On the inside lable it says NorthPole.

They are that largest tent maker in the world.

Thanks mike for the link and thanks to Tom D for the clarification on NorthPole. Apparently the Quest tent that I am looking at isn't a Trekker. It looks some like the Preying Mantis only an older model. Anyway, many THANKS to everyone that has responded.
