Leave it to the Austrians to devise the perfect shelter half tent. Each of the two halves include 5 galvanized steel ground stakes, 4 aluminum pole sections, and one length of guide line with an attached aluminum tensioner. The water repellent fabric is lightweight and durable nylon in O.D. Green color.

Shelter half tents were designed so that each soldier would carry exactly one half of what was needed to build a complete tent. When setting up camp, two soldiers would simply take out their shelter half kits, button the fabric pieces together to form the tent body and then use their shared poles, stakes, and guide lines to complete assembly. This is why each half ships in its own button flap pouch and a complete tent comes as a set of two pouches.

Austrian's level of attention was paid to even the smallest details including, but not limited to: reinforced stitching, parachute cord guide lines, and aluminum, galvanized, or copper washed steel hardware to resist the elements.

When laid out flat, each shelter half looks like a rectangle with a triangle on both ends. Once both halves are buttoned together, the triangular fabric areas meet to form a gear vestibule on both ends of the assembled tent.

Including gear vestibules, end to end, each tent measures a generous 10.75' long with a width large enough for two men to sleep comfortably shoulder to shoulder.

We have stocked shelter halves from many countries and from many eras, but this is the best setup we have ever seen from a design and durability standpoint. Used in excellent condition; Limited quantities, they won't last long at this price.

"Item was as described, shows some wear but overall a nice little pup tent, easy to put up and not as heavy as the canvas tents."

"Ordered two of them. First one was awesome both halves were like new. Second one was pretty ruff one half had all the tent stakes bent not usable but went to WalMart and got some new metal ones. Other than that in great condition. Will use them both for camping"

"For the price, this tent can't be beat. I got my two halves, one seemed to be lightly used, in great condition. The other seemed to be brand new, light rust on the metal snaps on the exterior case, but looked unopened on the inside. It retained some sticky coating on the inside of the tent that will probably come off as I use it. I'm no ultra-light backpacker, so this is perfectly light for me, far better than what I've had. I'll probably put a tarp over it as a rain fly, but other than that it should be perfect."
