Setting up a Vintage Umbrella Tent.wmv
I bought this vintage canvas tent because
I thought it was a pretty cool looking design; different from most tents you see. I think
it would make a great one-man hunting tent, but I haven’t found the opportunity to use
it. When I first got the tent, I tried to do some
research online and didn’t find much information on this type of tent.
I thought I’d post this video of myself setting it up at 4 times speed for anyone
else who is interested. This umbrella tent (as it is called) is a Western Field Tent
made by Montgomery Ward. The floor is a 10 x 10 square. As you can see it is very easy
to set up by yourself. This video clip is 7:17 long at normal speed. I only staked down
the corners, so if I were to set it up completely it may take closer to 10 minutes.
This design seems to be obsolete, but its ease of setup is very nice.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how to pitch an umbrella tent. If so, please click “like”
