Used German army issue tent for two. Fast to assemble and dismantle. Can also be turned into rain ponchos!

Packs into two separate but identical packages. Why this separation? Well the idea is that both fighters carry a single package - one half of the tent for each. This material can be used for personal camouflage and offers a rain shield if one is needed.

Both packages come in carrying bags and consist of one shelter half and peg bag including four pegs and three or four tent poles. The poles are the same length, they are simply constructed of 3 or 4 pieces depending on year of manufacture or something.

The tent is almost 3 metres long from one end to the other, depending on the way you set it up. Width just a bit less than a metre and a half - enough for two persons, too little for three and gloriously spacious for one. Weight 4,250 kg, so about 2 kg per man - not exactly an ultralight option.

The shelter half can be transformed into a rain poncho, with the carry bag acting as a hood.

German army surplus

Used, but in OK serviceable condition, but please note we can't check each and every little tidbit. That's the nature of used stuff.

Pitching the tent

1. Spread the fabrics and button them together. Ensure that the eyelets align at the ends.

2. Assemble the poles and poke the narrow ends through both eyelets. String some guyline over the end of the pole and peg them down.

3. Peg the sides down with stakes, three on each side. If the sides are missing loops, you'll need to fabricate them. No biggie.

4. Tighten the ridge and make final adjustments.

We recommend practicing this beforehand in easy conditions and also to check that you have everything you need, which should be as follows.

  • 2x carrying bag
  • 2x tent fabric half
  • 8x peg
  • 8x or 6x poles (same length anyways)
  • 2x guy line

This product is awesome. I only found one missing button on one of the carry bags, other than that there were no tears, no missing parts and everything was packed very nicely. I'm planning on trying it out this weekend.

this is a nice and cheap, simple tent, i really like it. it only had one button missing on one of the carry bags and it had a few minor holes, but they have been patched up really nicely. nice and simple to put up, decent space, must be snug for 2 people. it had all the appropriate gear with it and some German names written on the inside of the carry case. i use it with the BW folding sleeping mat and that works very well with it, although you need 2 to create a floor, otherwise you will be sleeping on dirt.
the only annoying thing about it is when you pack it up and dirt and mud gets in the bottom tent pole so you cant put a peg inside it for packing away, you have to poke a stick though to get all the packed dirt out. still worth it

A bit on the bulky side but makes up for it in unparalleled versatility you can do just about anything with this set. I was also quite happy with the condition it came in, the only damage was a well repaired cut on one of the tarps next to one of the grommets and one of the accessory bags had a few holes in the front.

This is a good tent. It is very durable and is hard to spot from a medium distance where I live (Western Maine). And to top it off, It all fits in a pa-108, 50 cal. Ammo can. Edit- This tent in not waterproof, keep this in mind when camping.

Mine came as described in very good condition. Nothing missing, torn, or repaired that I noticed. I have the NVA and Russian tarps, what I prefer about this is the ends of the tent can be closed up. There is no floor, but another tarp or a sleeping mat will fix that fast enough. Best Tarp type tent design I have seen. It is also longer so a normal sized guy fits better. too. You could leave the poles at home and use sticks if the weight is a issue. Great product, quite likely under priced.

I can't describe how much I am still geeking-out over the amount of German ingenuity in this little tent. The fact that the carry bags double as poncho hoods had me chuckling like a manic idiot as soon as I took them out of the box. Everything came in good condition (though I am going to get some paracord to replace the guy-wires that came with the tent poles). The two halves I received were dated 2007 and 2008. The 07 half had someone's named scribbled on the inside of the carry pouch. Otherwise, they were both almost like new. I love this tent and the design. Not perfect for all terrain or weather types, but it has style and personality.

The carry pouches have loops on the back that can be used to attach them to a belt, utility rig, pack, or (as I field-tested myself) a bicycle cargo rack, pannier-style. You just don't want to put little extra things in the pouches, because the sides button up, and small items may slide out.

Pretty amazing setup, surplus fragrance and all. I am 6' and 270 pounds and the poncho aspect works great for me. Did a quick setup in the cold just to help air it out and see how it went together. May not be the fastest to assemble but definitely is solid and the flecktarn pattern actually blends well with the area where I live.
The poles and stakes are in really good condition. I am very happy with the overall product. No tears, rips, missing buttons or stray threads. One half was made in 2001, the other in 2003, so the halves match up really well. The pouches were both made in 1991 and are obviously faded more than the halves.
Once the weather warms up I will assemble them again and hose them down and then waterproof them with some wax.
As an aside, I have heard that some former BW guys hated these "Dachshund garages" and said they were overly complicated and not effective. Said if 2 people slept in them and it rained, expect to get soaked because anywhere you touched it inside would leak. All I have to say is our U.S. shelter halves did the same exact thing but is easily remedied.
Great product and shipping was within a week. Thanks, Varustaleka!

Got ones dated 02 and 01 respectively with some very well done repairs on them. Had a missing button on one of the carry bags. Overall solid, and how in the world do you fold these things to fit in their bags?
