Company Values

We believe in the outdoor experience. It is our connection to life, to our one and only earthly home, to simplicity and beauty and truth. It is freedom. Spending the night out in a forest, meadow, lakeside, or anywhere one can lay flat is an unmatched sleeping experience. It reminds us that from dust we came and to dust we shall return and it reminds us that we are alive.

While we have life, we should celebrate our mobility, our senses, and our capacity to wonder. We should move, eat, think, sleep, and move some more. We should be self-sufficient for in sufficiency we find the core of who we are.

We believe in designing for a purpose and that success comes from sharing our talents, experience, and products with our customers. We view that relationship as a partnership.

We believe in our country and the value of work for our fellow citizens. We commit to manufacturing in the US with as much US made material as possible for all the products we make.

Our sole purpose at Tarptent is simple: to lessen the load and lift the spirit by providing lightweight, innovative shelters.
