Kephart’s Snow tent and Abercrombie’s Explorer/Cruiser tents are all variations on the same theme – a square, or relatively square, floor with a peaked roof and short ridge line at the door end. This is a great two (or more) person tent, but should only be used for applications not requiring a stove. The tent is steep sided with short walls in the back; parrels on the sides provide extra interior room. The front peak affords enough space to stand while dressing – always a plus.
We make this tent with either a snow tunnel entrance (shown right), a slit overlap door (not shown), or a slit overlap door with a short awning (shown left).
With numerous setup configurations available, this tent is suitable for erection in any number of spaces. Your camp may allow you to rig a pole system, either internal or external, or you may need to suspend it between trees. This versatile tent is sure to accomodate.
This is a fine closed system tent – one of the few where we would consider using a sewn in floor.
