Cascade Condo

rated 4 of 5 stars Walrus Cascade Condo Limited Edition Family Tent 4 + Person. (circa 1999) Hello, The Cascade Condo was made by WALRUS, a high respected tent maker, like MOSS. Both are no longer in business, but were acquired by MSR for their very highly rated tent designs. They are only available as pre-owned and with no replacement parts, although I assume somewhere there is a fabricator or artisan or repair tentmaker, or skilled DIY types, that could fabricate or repair existing tent components to some degree.

Arch Rival XV

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent tent Compact when packed, very lightweight at only 1.8Kg and excellent quality. I have had mine since 1999 and it has stood the test of time! Because of the size and weight it is ideal for hiking, cycling, and mountain expeditions. Full review

Rapeede XV

rated 4 of 5 stars 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


rated 5 of 5 stars 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


rated 5 of 5 stars 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

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.
