              Have not been able to use it but the quality is as advertised. Can’t wait to get it out

              Really enjoyed this

              It's perfect for car camping/overlanding. Heavy so definitely not recommended if you have to do a hike to your spot. Beautiful and great quality fun to set up and super spacious. I love it and would get ab=nother springbar in a heartbeat.

              Best tent ever.

              I got this tent when my son started Cub Scouts. It is bullet proof in heavy wind and rain. When the other Troop tents are failing in a big storm, the Vagabond is a fortress of a tent. It’s a perfect size for a couple of cots and it’s great that you can stand up in it. Ours is now 8 years old, dozens of camping trips and still looks like new. This tent is a very good value given that it likely will last a lifetime.

              Awesome Tent

              I was a boy scout when I was younger and completely forgot about canvas tents. Ive had some of the top brands and always find after 2-3 years I needed a replacement. After ordering my vagabond this is my new goto tent. Ground cloth is by far the best I’ve seen (I have a couple snow peak tents with ground cloths costing twice as much but no where near this quality.) I called about my order and had communication back the same day! I will definitely be a customer for life. I’m headed to the Great Sand Dunes Ntl park and then PINS in Texas for some beach camping. Can’t wait to use my new Springbar.
