Just when you thought all ancient Cold War-era stockpiles had been depleted we got a lot of old shelter halves. This Hungarian model is actually quite fancy, with two armholes, a proper drawcord hood, and everything! Can be used as a small single man shelter or rain cape and by buttoning two or more of these together you can build all sorts of bigger tent-like structures.

The material is proper old timey tent canvas, probably 100% cotton.

Used military surplus

These have probably seen decades of field use which shows: small holes and repairs are common, even some eyelets may be missing. Still, for the price, these are pretty good, and with a little patching up and waterproofing, these can easily be restored to their former glory.

About as simple as it gets.
Tough canvas, mine was very new, had a little rust on some of the grommet but was most likely from warehouse storage or something. Otherwise looks in perfect unused condition on both halves I received.
A little tight but actually not a problem at all for laying down in two halfs buttoned together. A one half is actually the box end used for the foot (or the head, either which you lay out sleeping position) end of your lay spot. So a single half you might be able to curl yourself up like a question mark to lay in. Two halves buttoned you can totally stretch out to sleep.
Rolls up nicely to strap around the outside of my 35L backpack. Very solid as a poncho, excellent camo. I could probaly make a toggle skirt to tie in around the bottom to raise the height but this tent design is perfect once you use it a few times and get a feel for its simplicity.

These are really nice, i like them a lot. I bought two of them to make a Lavuu style tent, tested it outside for three days straight in -10/-20c weather with snow and the ones i received are very resistant to the snow and water, bounces off quite nicely. I personally do not like shelters/tents made of synthetic materials so these are absolutely perfect for me. Extremely thick&durable 100% cotton canvas, not some thin modern day flimsy synthetic stuff you find. These will last you a very long time, they will most likely be in my survival/bushcraft kit for the rest of my life, i don't see myself needing anything else. I would also like to point out that I am 6'1/185cm tall and i can lay down in it just fine!!!! if you are over that height you may have some trouble though. It doesn't come with stakes or poles but i purchased an NVA East German stake and pole set and it works perfectly.

Unlike the Plash or NVA versions, this is truly a shelter half. It's triangle shaped.
Arrived in like-new condition. A few grommets were replaced with brass ones.
Dye is faded a bit, so it now looks more suited for fall foliage.
Works as it should, but I will re-wax it anyways.
