rated 2.5 of 5 stars Help ID this Moss Tent Works Camden Main label.. Didn't know what section to post this. I found this fairly beaten Moss two hoop pole tent, no poles small fly with the recognized tan Moss rip stop material. Dark brown floor and pole sleeves, top is a lighter tan than the fly blue doors and White YKK zippers. It has been stored improperly so you can only guess what it looks and smells like. Never the less of all the years i have done Moss Tent research i have never come across this particular style… Full review

Hooped Outland

rated 5 of 5 stars I have the Hooped Outland version. The vestibule has a separate pole and is great. It is tight to get in/out of for me (6'2") but it is bomb proof and long enough that my bag does not press against the tent walls. I got the tent down to 5 lb 10 oz lbs with Ti stakes and no ground cloth. Great for high altitude backpacking. I have the Hooped Outland version. The vestibule has a separate pole and is great.

Starlet (Three-Season)

rated 5 of 5 stars Beautiful, technically satisfying, sadly no longer made. Just wanted to include my review of this no-longer-obtainable tent so as to post pictures. Okay, also to reminisce a little. I bought this when my little Italian sportbike was still up and running and I'd just started the adventure of motorcycle camping. The tent I had at the time was a Eureka Bike-N-Hike. It had served me well, including several motorcycle trips, a car-camping trip one July from north of the Arctic Circle through Alaska,… Full review

Big Dipper

rated 5 of 5 stars Great, strong tent, has served me for 20 years. I bought this tent in 1995, and it has seen over 100 nights of use, backpacking with friends (it fits four adults easily), Scouts, etc. The vestibule is huge, the materials first class, holds up to strong winds no problem. Setup is OK once you get used to it, with color-coded pole sleeves. It vents well with two doors and lots of screen. Overall, just a classic tent I've never regretted purchasing. I use a bivy now for backpacking, but I'll keep this… Full review

Stardome II

rated 5 of 5 stars Classic bomb-proof mountain tent. The Moss Star Dome II is a classic tent, but not seen in the mountains too often these days since Moss went out of business around the year 2000. You'd think it would be obsolete at this point, but it is a very practical design, roomy enough for two, long enough to accommodate 6' 4" adults, and with a roomy hooped vestibule that makes it very livable. I've used this tent at altitude in a variety of weather conditions, in severe wind and heavy precipitation, and… Full review

Moss, Walrus, and Armadillo were manufactured by Edgeworks, which went out of business in 2001. In 2001, MSR acquired Edgeworks’ tent inventory and decided to honor tent warranty obligations for three years.

When Cascade Designs purchased MSR, it continued to honor MSR’s three-year warranty commitment; however, today, all warranty obligations for Moss, Walrus, and Armadillo brand tents have expired, and replacement parts for the same have been exhausted.
