Easy set up and break down. Very waterproof. Good for the back of a motorcycle. I brought this tent new from REI and was going to use it for a backpacking trip which got cancelled. I ended up using it for about a month. I got a job in Santa Barbara. I couldn't afford to stay in a hotel so I rented a camping spot at this RV campsite. They had a 10x12 sand box for you to put your tent in. Anyways, one night I woke up and it felt like I was on a waterbed. So I unzip my tent and I was sitting in 2"… Full review
A little heavy, but man what a tent. It's been up in blizzards no one should be in. I've used it for over twenty years and maybe thirty but I now need a pole section replaced. I found this site while looking for parts. I don't know when or how the sleeve of the pole split. I went out with it, found it broken, and splinted it to finish my camp trip. It is pretty old and had been through three blizzards, one with winds in excess of ninety mph, and as many as fifty other trips. The last use before… Full review
These tents are awesome. They withstood weather when others were snapping poles and going down! I highly recommend them. I've had mine for ten years. I've never had any problem with the Walrus tent. I've owned the Armidillo and it's withstood weather conditions like no others could where I camped. Zipper claps wore out as normal, but it was up for ten days at a time during the summer when camping so it took a lot of use. Rain cover is worn so I'm looking for a replacement, but the tent is in great… Full review
Quality...personified!!! I have 4 kids and 3 varieties of Walrus tents and they are all exceptional from every aspect!!! I researched for over many months on the best tents to stand up to borderline destruction under "kid" use and it seems that "Walrus" stood out in every aspect. I have had all threee of my "Walrus" tents now for well over 10 years...thanks for such a durable tent!!!!!!!!!!! I have used the "Walrus" brand tents for my family for well over 15 years and they have stood the test of… Full review
Lightweight, nigh bulletproof design coupled with high-quality materials and craftsmanship all add up to a stellar bargain IF you can fit inside. Walrus Tents. Ahh, the glories of a simpler time. I had been seeking out a Walrus tent for about 6 months when a 1+ person Swift popped up on eBay. New with tags still attached, it looked shiny even via the digital photos I was browsing through. I had to have it. Walrus tents were kind of like a unicorn to me — if I even spotted one in my life, I needed… 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.
