Bought this tent from the ABC factory in 1959.

Although roomy and comfortable, it's a bit heavy.

It's made from cotton (impregnated once a year) and with a rubber coated floor. The optional extra roof is made in some kind of nylon (looks new).

The tents original olive green color has deteriorated and is now more gray than green.

I have used this tent in all kinds of conditions for the past 41 years without any other problems than that I had to change some of the original ropes (hamp) about 10 years ago.

This one's been just about everywhere.
