My second Springbar from US.

This is my second Springbar. I had a Classic Jack 100, and I have another compact 2 now, so either camp with friends or camp alone, I can always have Springbar with me. Thank you so much for the excellent delivery. Open at 9am and 9:06 I have UPS notice. I got the tent just before my flight, so happy.

2-person Compact Tent

I just received the tent and have not really tried it. Initial impression is it is very well made. What drove me to choose the Springbar Compact Tent versus the competition is that this is Made in the USA. That is a very powerful incentive for me and I know many feel the same way. The competition's offer has more features and lower price but I was willing to compromise for the honor of buying Made in the USA product. I only wish that Springbar update their offerings to match some of the features of the competition; i.e. more doors, windows, vents, etc. Or offer an option to customize the order since these are made here anyway. I recall years ago that they were willing to make reasonable modifications but not anymore. You can charge for the service but at least offer to your customers.

Buy right the first-time

I have a two man spingbar tent bought new in the late 1960s well cared for untill my dog tore a big hole in the side ,took it to springbars repair shop and had it fixed, they did a great job and then some with the repair cant hardly tell the new material from the original its good for the next 40 years , I have three other newer springbar tents still made with the same quaility as the old one ,made in utah . So spend the money for a springbar tent you won't regret it
