German Army Surplus Pup Tent

These German army surplus pup tents are genuine Bundeswehr issue. They are a middleweight canvas material that are reversible, so one side is flecktarn camo and the other is olive green. You have two tents in one! This style if tent is known as a pup tent, the two sides are buttoned together to make a triangular shelter, this saves weight as an individual soldier only has to carry one half of the tent, then 'buddy up' with another to create a whole shelter.

The Hood accessory is designed to be used when the individual is using their half as a poncho - it also acts at an additional water-proofing topper for the ridge ends above the poles, but order two if you want to do this.

Stocks our running out! Once these are gone it is very unlikely you will see these again!
