The Moss Tents brand was born in the imagination of one man: fabric artist and designer Bill Moss. Most widely known for the invention of the pop tent, Bill Moss revolutionized the way people around the world experienced the outdoors in temporary structures.
Bill and his wife, Marilyn and his production team designed thousands of unorthodox tents, structures and canopies using tensile architectural shape and form. The breadth and depth of Moss invention has a nearly omniscient impact on modern outdoor backpacking, camping and expedition adventures. Extreme expeditionists and adventurers of all kinds idolize the Moss brand for its contributions to the wondrous experiences Moss technologies have enabled them to experience.
MOSS Tent works was founded in 1975 in Camden, Maine, under the name Tent Works Ltd by fabric artist and designer Bill Moss with his wife and business partner, Marilyn Moss. Over the next four decades, the company changed its name to MOSS Tent works, MOSS Inc., and MOSS Design International. Initially, the company designed and produced innovative, high performance camping tents, backyard and beach products, and architectural canopies, but later expanded into trade show exhibits.
MOSS backpacking tents were the acknowledged best in the world.
MOSS Tents was so successful that the company eventually sold its tent division to REI in 1994.
"MOSS Tents played a critical role in our achievement.
...Your tents are undoubtedly the best tents in the world."


-Steve Davis, Deputy Leader American Ama Dablam North Ridge Exp.
