Description / German Army Pup Tent
The German Army Pup Tent is based on the proven shelter half based design that has been used by countless military forces for decades. Each soldier would be issued their own shelter half which contains the shelter half and one half of the components necessary to assemble a tent.
While on patrol the individual soldier could wear his shelter half as a rain poncho during the waking hours and at night pair up with a buddy and construct this 2-man pup tent. This proven design has been used by military forces in the United States, Germany, England, and Austria for decades and has been shown to be the ideal design for a small 2-man tent.
- Authentic German Army 2-Man Tent
- Flecktarn Camouflage Pattern
- Complete Tent - 2 Shelter Halves, 6 Tent Pole Pieces, 2 Guy Lines, and 8 Tent Stakes
- Shelter Halves can be used as Rain Ponchos

I contacted KS about the unusable tent half and they sent me another one. Thank you KS.
The only issue with the replacement was a tear in a non-critical area that was easy to fix. I now have a usable Flecktarn tent.
I also have figured out how to configure it as a poncho.
Again, thank you KS.
As a side note: The tent is intended to be used as a poncho with the carry pouch attached as a hood. How this is accomplished I haven't figured out yet.
A) The set I received was issued, but was apparently issued to a pogue who never went to the field--my set was mint!
B) The poles are the wood-and-metal WWII style. I've seen the poles go for 5-6 dollars each on other sites, since WWII reenactors use them. Since 6 poles come with this set, that's worth the price right there.
C) The tent pegs are the old-school wooden type. Again, perfect for reenacting any historic period from the 1700's through the 1940's.
D) My set came with two types of guy rope: an old style rope with whip-corded ends, and a newer style rope that was rubber coated. One cool thing is that Keep Shooting included an extra guy line.
E) Each shelter 1/2 stores flat in its own bag--much better than the we had in the US Army, where we had to roll the thing up and carry it on the top of our rucks.
All in all, this is a GREAT tent, at a great price. Reenactors will love it for the historically correct accessories; Preppers will love it for its functionality; Camo fiends will love the pattern...basically, buy this tent. You won't be disappointed.
