Source: bought it new
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.

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

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.
