The French army pup tent looks like a traditional boy scout contraption but scaled down for two persons. Made of canvas or nylon with waterproof floor.

Important! Almost every tent we get nowadays is made of nylon material. While not as traditional or breathable from the top, it's much lighter especially when wet, much more water resistant, faster drying and likely more durable.

Big enough for two persons, king size for one and barely fits three, the French tent looks like something used decades ago. Well, actually these are just that. If traditional design inspires you, this isn't a half bad option for leisurely camping: it's sturdy, reliable, neutral shade and for a this price you can't go wrong. The ends can be opened up quickly if necessary and the closed design means nothing gets inside if every opening is shut. Additionally they included insect net covered ventilation holes on each end and sides (velcro operated). Can be erected by one person, but much more easily by two.

Dimensions

  • Inside length about 2,1 m, width 1,4 m and height 1 m.
  • We were able to fit inside one Euro size 52 and two 48 persons at the same time, with still enough room for them to sleep. See the extra picture taken inside and please do note the blurry moustache on the left.
  • If you are going solo, a field cot fits inside. With two normal size persons (and no cots) their gear should also fit inside.
  • Measurements packed about 50 x 23 cm.
  • Weight for the whole set something like 3,7 kg. You could probably file some off - the wateproof floor probably makes a third of the tent fabric weight, and some may choose to trim it.

    The nylon version with aluminium poles in their stuff sack weighs less than 2,5 kg, excluding pegs and cords. A bag of 6 mm steel pegs weighs almost one kg by themselves, so there really is room to lose some weight, even though this tent will never be popular with weight weenies.

Contents

  • The tent itself
  • Two poles
  • The pegs might not be included - most probably have them, some might not. Any pegs will do, even sticks if the ground is soft enough.
  • A bunch of cords to secure the tent to ground. Not necessarily enough (some may be lost), but if you're buying a surplus tent, you probably have paracord already.
  • Stuff sack isn't always included, but this will roll up pretty nicely without one. Alternatively you can get just about any shopping bag sized bag for it.

French army surplus

Used, but in good serviceable shape. Should you wish, you can treat the fabric with waterproofing agents. Or why not throw a separate rain cover on the tent? A traditional rain cape will do in a pinch, but a 3 x 3 m tarp is the best. Of course the nylon model is inherently quite water resistant.

Toimiva ja kestävä perusteltta kestävällä telttakankaalla jossa plussana verkotus tuuletusaukoissa, jolloin yöunet myös lapissa taattu. Kestää isältä pojalle, jos ei kovin pahoinpitele. Hiukan painavahko, saattaa vaatia telttakyllästettä mutta muuten 5/5.

If we compare this tent to modern designs its construction is obsolete, and yet I find it quite charming. Perhaps because it reminds me of the first tent I've had as a boy. Nostalgia aside, this tent is quite good if we consider the price. I've received the brand new and complete nylon version. The stakes needs to be replaced for the aluminium ones since the ones included with a tent weight as much as the tent itself but everything else is good. The tent is still to heavy for backpacking though unless you are on a budget, if so you might wish to use hiking poles instead of the tent poles to cut on weight even more. However for car camping or canoeing this tent is very suitable. Not sure how the condensation will be in this tent but increased condensation in a single wall tents is common so will see. Like I said for the price very good.

Huikea härveli, iteltä löytyy tuo puuvillainen versio ja sen säänkestävyyttä testasin Nummessa jussina. Välillä vettä tuli enemmän ja välillä vähemmän, mutta vasta neljäntenä aamuna alkoi nurkista tulla vettä sisään. Tähän hommaan olisi pieni ojitus varmasti jeesinyt. Kattoon olen kerran kyllästettä ruikkinut ja se kesti moitteetta koko setin ilman pressuja tms virityksiä.

Syssyllä tää lähtee viikon vaellukselle. Katotaan miten äijän käy.

Tosi hyvä ja helppo teltta. Myös tarpeeksi miehekäs.

Olen pystyttänyt teltan kovillakin vesisateilla, eikä ole tullut vesi läpi. Yksin saa pystytettyä naurettavan helposti. Parempaa saa etsiä.

This is a good, sturdy tent. Easy to set up. These do not include the rain fly but just use a DD tarp or a similar tarp. Has good ventilation.

Arrived virtually brand new. Had that milsurp storage smell No rain fly. Replace the pegs (1lb) to lose a little weight. Set it up in -10C Canadian backyard for the week and tested it out a few nights for condensation. Snowed heavily and it stood up well buried in snow. It's nylon. Walls got pretty wet without everything open. Very good ventilation all things considered, spacious, comfortable. 50$. Win.

I own the canvas version and did a side by side comparison with the nylon version. Nylon will require seam sealing with attention to the ridgepole especially but has a kilo less weight advantage. I substitute V poles for the single for faster entry and exit. If you are in mosquito country the zipper intersection needs attention. I have used mine in summer desert and our last snowfall. Two Plash Palatka fly makes a bombproof basecamp.

It's better than what you could get elsewhere for the money. I see this more of a casual camping tent than a military item, perhaps to throw a couple kids in or take off with your gal for a weekend this would work well. I like the wrap around vent at the bottom . Would be fun to try a canvas one! Maybe a option for this in the future?

Mycket bra tält för ett lågt pris. Inte det lättaste tältet, och en hel del kondens på insidan när man tältar på sommaren. Störs du ej av dessa brister har du ett mycket ekonomiskt och slitstarkt tält som fungerar året om.

Teltta saapui, ilokseni sain huomata että pussin kera, vaikuttais liki käyttämättömältä ja näytti pikasella vilkasulla olevan kaikki tarpeetki mukana.. ainakin tämän perusteella uskaltaisin suositella.

Posti toi täysin käyttämättömän nailon-version kaikkine varusteineen. Alumiiniset päätysalot ja kaksi ylimääräistäkin maakiilaa. 2018 helteillä oli mukava viettää öitä tässä. Hyttysverkkojen ansiosta ilma vaihtuu mainiosti. Multamaahan pystytettynä päätyjen maakiilat irtosivat tuulessa pari kertaa ja teltta meni kasaan. Veistelin tilalle ankarammat kiilat ja ongelma poistui. Teltan sivuilla riittää mukana tulleet kiilat. Pystytys ja purku todella nopeaa ja helppoa.
