Springbar is the tent to own!

"We have used springbar tents for 30 plus years. We own a total of 3. We have bought for all our children as wedding gifts a springbar tent. The quality of this product is proven year after year. The design is amazing. Super happy. Won't shop anywhere else."

Best tent I have owned

"Bought this a month ago, recieved it w a tear, they sent me a patch kit and some goodies (my choice over replacing it)+finally took it out to the ridgline up in utah, the backcountry near independence, since the day before, the winds moved my truck, i decided to set up camp, there are wind barriers on the highway btw, anyways, first of all, i did not drive the stakes more than half way and i bent some, utah has some weird land, rock layers under dirt, well the wind came, amazingly the tent held up, i was shocked, then the rain came....i stayed bone dry, my only regret is not getting a hot tent since i live in utah now and i def need one. Shotout to Shakila for making my tent on my bday month and Nate, dont tight the straps too tight ;) forgot to mention, im 5’11” 300 and used a teton xxl cot and had so much room"

Yep, the warranty service is terrific

"Had a glitch with a pole on my Vagabond. Sent an email and photo; and got immediate response: (something like) "Yep, not supposed to do that so we'll ship out a new pole ASAP." Shipped (I think within 24 hours). Thanks folks!!!"
