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

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.

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.
Ease of Setup: very easy
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.
