              Awesome Hunt

              I have been looking at these for years and just pulled the trigger. This tent has made our hunt very comfortable. It holds heat in so everyone stayed warm. It rained on us for three days, not a drop inside. All we did was spray it down in the yard three times in one day to prepare it. We got the bison color, and it looks fantastic! Stakes bent quickly, but was expected as NV desert/rocks have bent every stake.

              Order and Purchase of a Spring bar tent .

              Your company and product continue to impress me!
              Ordered another tent from you on line . Had to make a call about the September special .
              Didn’t put the order in properly but your customer assistance made the correction and I got the ground tarp one day after the tent showed up.
              I knew how good the product was . After assembly I now know the the quality continues and that customer service did what they said they would do .
              Both reassuring in a world that is very unpredictable.
              Thank You!

              Absolutely love this tent. The material and build quality is phenomenal plus it's roomy, bright and has great air flow. I'm 6'3 and can stand comfortably in it and it only took a couple minutes to set up. Can't recommend this tent enough.

              Standing the test of time

              Last night, some grandchildren and I concluded summer with our annual backyard campout in our 25-year-old Vagabond Springbar tent. Rain or shine, we pitch the tent. It rained 3/4" during the night, with accompanying winds and a little lightning and thunder. Me (65), with three granddaughters (ages 8, 10 and 12) slept through it all pretty well, except for the patter of the rain on the tent, but with not a worry that there would be a leak. That just doesn't happen. So after many years of Scout camps, a trip to the Green River this year, and wrapping it up with the Labor Day sleepover, the Vagabond always delivers.
