Classic Canvas Viking Tent for Medieval Camping
As our dedicated clients, readers and followers may recall, a little while ago we have decided to re-design our line of medieval tents to improve their reliability and functionality and to achieve better historical look and more aesthetically pleasing design.
This is our first new piece for a line of Early Medieval Saxon/Scandinavian tents.
Very simple, very easy to install and quite practical – not mentioning great period look – this tent designed to be installed on a light wooden frame. To meet weight and size requirements of the international shipment actual tents will be shipped without frame. However, the frame is simple enough that, with the instruction we'll provide could be easily made on site or at home. The instruction will be made in two versions: one is very simple and another – a little bit more sophisticated, but more historically accurate and better looking.
You can check and download how to make a frame manual here and watch our video about making tent frame and setting Viking's Tent up:
- 3m x 3 m x 2 m (9.8 ft. width, 9.8 ft length, 6.5 ft height)
- Tent weight: 18 kg (39 lbs) without wooden frame
Tent comes with all ropes included.
We also glad to announce that we finally found a good manufacturer of sturdy, reliable and good-looking natural canvas. They are specializing on manufacturing military grade linen-based water resistant fabric. On our special request this manufacturer agreed to leave the fabric in a natural color. Thus, from now on, our historical line of tents will be made based on this sturdy and great looking canvas. Manufacturer's certificate states following fabric properties:
- Fabric weight: 540 g/m2 (about 1.75 oz per sq. ft.)
- Waterproof: yes
