Anyone check these frames out?
I checked out the frames on Saturday. I thought they were too light and appeared a little flimsy. Made in China probably says it all.
The tents were packed away in boxes so you couldn't examine them. They are also made in China so I decided not to take a chance when I couldn't examine it while it was set up.

I picked one up on Friday and had a chance to set it up today and check it out . I am very impressed with the quality . Looks just as good ( if not better ) than the norseman i had before . the Stiching is double and good quality . It has reinforcment patches in the areas where the frame will rub . sets up in about 20 min ( first tme ) I took the garden hose to it and tried to make it leak, paying extra attention to the seams . It is very water tight .
for 700.00 its a fantastic deal :)
I snapped some pics of it if anyone is interested

is that a 4ft or 5 ft wall? Did you get the poles? If so what do you think of them?

the side walls are 52" . I did get the poles . Its got an internal ridge frame and external wall poles . The ridge frame can be adjusted for both height and length. I think that will be handy if the tent shrinks or expands . Its really solid once you get it set up and get all the ropes tightened. The poles are definetly a heavy enough guage . as a bonus they are powdercoated . I remember the poles on my Norseman we rusty and always stained the tent where they touched the canvas

I purchased one for $700 in BC from Surplus Herbies and I am happy with it (I was surprised too!). I've had ,or worked in and with, Montana Tents, army tents and others and although I like 5+ foot walls the 52 inch walls are respectable and the material does not differ from the 10oz Montana Outfitters nor the Alaskan. It was up in heavy west coast rain for 7 days and nights and did not leak or drip anywhere other than the built in stove pipe outlet. (Stove pipe outlet not included on the more expensive tents). It is not the top of the line tent for certain, but the netting on the door and window are quality and well sewn, as are all the seams and joins. Poles could be more well thought out, but I feel this way about all non-solid internal frames (which alone cost more than this entire unit). So for 40% of the price of a name brand tent (without frame). I think this tent is a great deal; and if you're not living it 3 months at a time or spending weeks in the snow this tent will do just fine and last many years. It has now spent a few days up in the yard drying (after being used in the field) and is back to new condition. It sprayed off and cleaned up just as well as the other more expensive tents. The set up and take down time is normal (pain in the ass normal as they all are) and quick with 2 guys...20-30 min. (or one guy and a wife, add 15 more minutes and a little more foul language). If you have 2 or 3+ grand to put down look elsewhere, but for the money...again..a great deal.

Surplus Herbies I used to love this store when I lived in Likley. Great deals on fishing equipment.

I have one of these tents and absolutely have no complaints. I have used it on two one week long moose hunts in northern Alberta. And it has stood up just as good as my partners Norseman.

Hello everyone there has been a major recall on a lot of canvas wall tents NOT made in North America as they DO NOT meet CSA fire retardent requirements check with Campers Village and Deluxe wall tents out of Ontario for more details. I found all the info on the net as I was looking or a wall tent earlier this year.
