Shelter Tent (Dog Tent)

Our shelter halves feature double-sewn center seam, top and bottom reinforcements, and machine-done button holes with rope for stakes. Our shelter halves are made without brass grommets, which were a MUCH later development. Made of heavy-duty 12oz canvas with 23 pewter 4-hole 5/8" buttons per half. Each half is approx. 64'' x 64'', but may vary due to material width from the loom. Each soldier carried a shelter half and when he bunked down with his pard for the night, the two halves were buttoned together to make one tent. See How to Set Up A Dog Tent for instructions for setting up your Dog Tent.
  • Price is for two shelter halves put together.
  • Shown assembled with the outside "foraged pole"method
