    I just scored a USMC Combat Tent Never been used for Y1500.00 or $200.00. I got to get the funk out of it but it's all there and the best news is there's more tents at this place I got it from. DOCROB

    It looks like a 2 man tent. I got it out in town here in Okinawa. Jersey John you interested in one? I got it cleaned up now once it's dry I'll post a couple pics of it set up. DOCROB

    Its a great tent I use to own one. Cool thing is its a heavy duty camo tent! I found it a little to small for me tho. So I traded it good deal on that tho I paid over 2x that much.

    It smelled funky not mildew funky but funky none the less, this island is nearly 100% humidity all the time so it must have been in storage for a while. I'ld say 10-12lbs is about right. It came with a repair kit, 18 stakes, and cordage. To be honest you only need 9 stakes for the whole tent. And the Rainfly is the heaviest part of the whole tent. No the tent wasn't dirty, I don't think it's ever been used. All theother tents I saw were the same way. I think there are 8-9 more tents at this surplus shop I went to.
