Introducing the Range Tent

A ‘DIY’ camping option for a short weekend adventure. Our Range tents will easily fit into the boot of your car and are quick and easy to pitch.

The handmade cotton Range tent, also called a Herder or Pyramid tent, was originally designed for working cowboys in North America. The modernised tipi is still made in the same way today, using durable cotton canvas, the same type of fabric that was used to make up the sails of the ships that originally brought settlers to the U.S.A.

The tents are easy to set up, with a square base and sloping sides, hanging from an external A-frame wooden pole set. Or set it up cowboy style by simply attaching the top of the tent to a low hanging tree branch, and you are good to go.

About 2.4 x 2.4 m in size, each tent comfortably sleeps two adults, but is still compact and lightweight enough to roll up and pack in the boot of a small car.

Collect your Range tent camping kit before you head out of town for the weekend, or have it delivered to your home or office. Our kits include a tent with pole set and steel pegs, as well  as a few essential camping basics. All kits can be customised to include additional camping equipment.
