The SELKIRK Spike Tent is the perfect choice for remote camps and horse packers.

These spike tents are made of 10.10 oz. per square yard marine treated army duck. Spike tents are very durable, water repellent, mildew resistant and flame retardant .

3 Pole roof support design - front- center - back - poles allows for extra headroom at the front and the rear of the spike tent for easy entry and more standing room inside than single and double pole spike tents.

OUTSIDE WALL POLE SUPPORTS - 1 ON EACH CORNER AND 1 IN THE MIDDLE OF SIDE WALLS (middle outside wall support not shown in photo)

A 12 x 12 spike tent has 44% more floor space than a 10 x 10.

A 14 x 14 spike tent has 36% more floor space than a 12 x 12.

10' x 10' spike tent size allows sleeping for up to four people, 12X12 up to 6 people, 14 X 14 up to 8 people.

FRONT AND BACK DOORS are 6'4" and rises up to 7'11" at the center for the 10x10 and 12 x12..

14x14 center height is 9'.

OD of aluminum poles are 1 1/4" with longest pole 31". Legs are 2 pieces.

Floor and side walls sewn together with black webbing for extra reinforcement and strength.

Tub vinyl floor design to keep seams off ground to prevent possible leaks at seams.

New improved - Heavy, heavy duty vinyl floor to prevent punctures and prevent water leaking into the tent.

Windows have screen mesh with zippered flaps on inside and Velcro.

*********************FRONT & BACK SCREEN DOORS $140 ***************************

Screen door covers entire end of tent to provide more ventilation than other tents which have partial screens on end of tent.

10 x 10 Screen doors do not have an inverted screen T zipper, just a regular zipper. Which means the screen doors are not entirely bug proof. 10 x 10 Canvas door has an inverted T zipper.

12 x 12 Screen Doors have a screen door inverted T zipper. A regular zipper on canvas door, not a T zipper.

14 x 14 Screen Doors have a screen door inverted T zipper. A regular zipper on canvas door, not a T zipper.

************************************************************************************

Sewn in Floor. FOR YOUR SAFETY, you must have a fireproof material under your stove, minimum 12" to front and 6" to sides and the back. We have fire mats available that go under stove for $45.

The walls are 4', making the floor space more usable and the sewn-in floor keeps out wind, insects and rodents.

Weight

  • TOTAL Weight Spike Package includes: tent, poles ropes & tensioners. Poles weigh 16 lbs; ropes and tensioners weigh 6 lbs.
  • 10X10 Water/Mildew treated package 63 lbs. 12X12 Water/Mildew package weighs 69 lbs.
  • 10X10 FIRE, Water/Mildew treated weighs 69 lbs. 12X12 FIRE, Water/Mildew package weighs 76 lbs.

FLY

  • DO NOT PLACE THE FLY ON THE TENT SO THE FLY TOUCHES THE WALL SIDE POLES. IF FLY TOUCHES SIDE POLE A HOLE WILL BE WORN INTO YOUR FLY.
  • It is best to use your fly ridge ropes to connect to grommets on each ridge end of the fly to pull the fly taught so rain easily runs off the fly.

SNOW LOADS. SPIKE TENTS CANNOT WITHSTAND SNOW LOADS LIKE A WALL TENT. Wall tents have an internal rafters that support the roof. By their design, a spike tent has only 1-3 poles supporting the roof. Our selkirk spike tent has 3 roof poles. These poles go through a grommet at the ridge and at each door. There is no warranty for grommet failure. If one of the grommets fail it is due to a heavy snow load. No warrantly on poles also. Bent roof poles can only occur during heavy snow loads. Normal use you will have no problems with the Selkirk and get many years of use. Not using common sense voids the warranty.

TESTIMONIAL

I had a chance to set up the spike tent I ordered from you a couple weeks ago.  Great design on the spike tent!  I haven't seen a tent on the market stitched with that quality for the price.  The design is just excellent.  The extras like stove jack, floor, windows, zip ,would cost a hell of a lot more from other manufacturers.  I set it up by myself for the first time, took me 35 minutes.  It's a very well thought out design.
 
Thanks

I received the 12x12 spike tent. Everything in excellent condition. You did an excellent job of packing the tent. I am very pleased with this purchase. I have given some thought to a fly and will order one and a wilderness stove to complete this tent. I did take your advice for the tent stakes and made them out of 1/2" rebar as you suggested. Many thanks for an excellent product and prompt service. JW

Compared to a wall tent, a Spike tent due to its lack of rafters is not suited for heavy snow loads or very high winds. A wall tent can withstand snow loads and high winds due to its internal frame with rafters that support the roof.

A 4" gap between the fly and top of sidewall is recommended. Gap is accomplished by having the fly rope stakes farther away from the tent than the tent eave rope stakes.
