              3rd Springbar tent!

              Great tents, bought 2 compacts and giving one to my brother as a gift. American made and tough as nails, you really cant go wrong with any of the models in the lineup.

              The Compact canvas tent is PERFECT!! It's just the right size! The zippers are heavy-duty (they open and close with ease), the 2 doors provide excellent access
              and the steel loops that secure the tent to the ground will not rip or tear, like the cloth type on other tents. Planning on using MY new tent for all my adventures this
              year, into 2024 and the FUTURE!! Most of all, I selected this particular tent because of its unique color...Admiral BLUE!!!

              I used the tent for the first time this week. I’m 68 years old and had no problems setting it up. Love it!

              Compact is a winner

              After extensive research on a tent upgrade, I landed on the Springbar Compact. I recently took a trip to test it out - I can confidently say I made the right choice. Beautifully made high quality tent! Easy setup. On the second night of the trip there was an unexpected intense desert rain storm for 6 hours straight. The tent held up perfectly and not a drop came through (hadn't seasoned it yet). I love the high ceilings on the compact tent. My only suggestion would be to add a carrying strap to the tent pole bag and tent bag - I had to hike my gear a ways before setting up and that would've been a huge help. Otherwise, incredibly happy and can't wait to take it out again (and for many years to come).
