Wedge Tents

Wedge TentsProbably the most timeless of all tentage, the wedge tent has been with us in one form or another for many centuries. We have researched and found a variety of shapes and sizes suitable for different time periods. Some have flat fronts and backs while others sport a belled rear section providing storage space for gear.

There exist many sketches from medieval times to the present, showing the wedge tent in continuous use. It is not necessary to get stuck with a “generic” wedge when the correct style for your character is available. If you portray a civilian, documented decoration for wedge tents includes taped seams, woven and painted stripes, and embroidery.

Wedge TentsOverlapping front doors tie both inside and outside. All stress points are reinforced. We can provide mud flaps upon request.
