Visit with a Whelen

What happens when the Shellenbeans are stuck not attending events for long periods? You get a video about the mysterious Whelen! This is such a unique style of shelter, and not like a tent at all. It has a completely open front, and only wings on the sides. The Whelen is meant to be erected using ropes and trees, or a frame you’ve made yourself. This type of shelter is great for in front of a nice fire, looking at a lovely view, or at the beach (if you frame it up.)

  1. I’d love to get some info on a baker tent

    1. I don’t think we have any orders for Baker tents at the moment, but we’ll try to do a video the next time we have one in the shop.

  2. Thank you 😊 for making my husbands amazing 😉 tent ⛺️ he just received it today and already out camping 🏕 with it!!!! Best ⛺️ and very strong 💪 we appreciate your hard work and dedication!!!

  3. This beauty is on my wish list…love it!

    1. It is on Stephen’s wish list too! We make them, but we usually ship them out, he wants one of his own!

  4. What would be the size of the Whelen tent and would it be practical to make this using oilskin material. Phil

    1. The size is on the product page: https://www.tentsmiths.com/product/whelen-tent/ and while it is possible to make it out of oilskin, since this type of shelter is so often close to fire, we don’t recommend it.

  5. If I were to order a Whelen Lean-To how long will it take you to complete the tent? And how many days or weeks before it would be shipped?

    1. Our usual wait time for a tent is three months. We got slammed with orders this spring, so right now (May 20, 2021) any order placed probably will not be done until October.
