Authentic Military Grade Gear
Diamond Brand Gear produces the most authentic military grade tents on the market. It’s a bold claim, but one backed up by our long history of contract work with the U.S. military that spans more than 100 years. We are honored to continue our military tent contract work to this day with our production of a two man military combat tent for the USMC.
Military History: The World Wars
In the 1940s, Diamond Brand jumped into the war effort alongside the rest of the country, supplying top-notch canvas products from our military combat tents and packs to stretchers and canvas wall tents that were used as field hospitals. By the end of the war, Diamond Brand had completed 144 different government contracts.
Military History: The Gulf Wars
Our military grade, four-man tent known as the Soldier Crew Tent went into production in 1989. With the onset of the Perisan Gulf war in 1991, we were contracted by the U.S. government to produce this new military tent design for Army tank crews. By the end of the war, our workers had manufactured over 8,000 of these military combat tents. This solidified Diamond Brand’s place as a significant contractor for the U.S. military.
The Combat II: Made for Survival & Hunting
Designed for those who choose to take their adventures to the next level. The elements won’t stand a chance against the tent that sets the gold standard for military-grade performance.
The materials used in our military camping tents have been chosen by our team and vetted by our military partners to provide certainty and reliability in places where none is given. Our military tents are durable enough to take you places that push your comfort zone, not your equipment.
The body of our Combat II tent is composed of military grade 70 D nylon uncoated ripstop for breathability, fire retardant flooring, and military-grade no-see-um mesh doors complete with a 70 denier coated 2nd layer door. The included repair kit will keep you covered in the event that you run into serious damage. Fabric is Berry Amendment compliant.
Our military combat tent utilizes DAC press-fit tent poles built with Military Grade Anodized Aluminum. These poles are treated to be durable, corrosion-resistant, and as lightweight as possible, without compromising integrity. “Pressfit” poles are still the most rugged and reliable poles made in the world today.
