This Camden, Maine, original tent is roomy for two people even with a pack harbored inside overnight.

Pros

  • It looks great.
  • It’s a collectible.
  • It’s nearly indestructible when properly used.
  • It lasts decades and decades. Mine is now 26 years old.

Cons

  • It’s no longer manufactured.
  • Due to decomposition of the floor material, I had to replace the floor by former Moss Tent Co. employees at Tent Repair in Maine, who did a perfect job of it.

This tent is the best tent I’ve ever owned.

Thanks for letting us know about your Moss tent, TigerFang. I'd love to see some pics.

I have had my Moss Olympic for 17 years. I have put it through hell over that time. Summer thunderstorms in Appalachia, winter snow, you name it.

Too bad they went out of business.

Price Paid: $600

I've used my tent from the Adirondaks to Costa Rica and found it to be very reliable. A bit heavy compared to newer tents but 20 years of use makes it a good investment. I'm now shopping for another because my family has grown.

Excellent year round. Can take a frost liner. Good vestibule - handy summer and winter. A nice tent for wind and snow. Well made for long term use. Wonderful at altitude and in very cold conditions. Vestibule is very useful.
