Rutstrum Wilderness Tent: 5.5 oz 50% rayon and cotton in O.D. or tan?

I read about it in Paradise Below Zero. I also read The Wilderness Cabin and North American Canoe Country.

This correspondence PDF that has references to the Rutstrum Wilderness Tent. It has dimensions of three versions., descriptions are found in 1952/53 edition Way of the Wilderness and 1958 New Way of the Wilderness has a drawing. Paradise Below Zero describes the winter liner and stove. Once Upon a Wilderness has three photographs of the tent with its insect lining and he discusses some of his modifications over the years. ... s-to-a.pdf p 6/11 might still make his tent, if asked.

This one is similiar to the Rutstrum Wilderness Tent. ... tents.html

Here are more references to Calvin Rutstrum that may be of interest: ... 12&bih=595 He lived what other people only write about.

ConnieD, how is your Shangrala3 tent working out for you? Did you use it over the winter with a backpacking stove? :D
