Compact Bison

I adore it completely. This summer, my daughter and I are planning a camping trip. So excited!

Perfect for Solo or Lighter Trips!

After loving my Outfitter, I was interested in a slightly smaller and more compact version for solo trips. As soon as I found out a Roll A Cot fit through the door of the Compact, I was sold! At 6’3” I can sit up inside on a cot without my head touching the roof. Lots of room inside this tent with one person on a cot and my pup, plenty of room for two. Plus the normal, superb Springbar quality, and fit and finish.

Back to Canvas

After 50 years of nylon backpack style tents I bought a Springbar.Four stars as I”ve not camped yet, only having put up tent.The process was simple and quick,no more chasing nylon in a wind, the quality is apparent,US made, and I expect years of use as I've had with canvas tents years ago.
