The Chimaki Tent redefines group camping with its unique 'shared house style,' offering private sleeping areas and a communal living space. Designed to hang from a tarp, it can also stand alone without one, using an included pole. Constructed from spark hole-resistant polycotton, it ensures durability and safety. The tent's breathable design, coupled with convenient features like a lantern hook and storage pockets, enhances comfort. Its compact size makes it perfect for solo adventures as well.


  • Versatile design for group or solo/duo camping.
  • Easily hangs from a tarp or stands alone.
  • Durable and spark-resistant polycotton fabric.
  • Breathable with mesh door and window.
  • Compact and convenient.

About Polycotton

Polycotton is a mix of polyester and cotton. Compared to polyester, polycotton provides a superior camping experience. The material breathes so the tent does not become humid, it’s quieter in the wind, and it’s more durable. Polycotton is commonly used for tents in Europe and Japan. It is used less commonly in North America due to the cost. In an effort to introduce polycotton tents to the North American market, DOD is offering our line of polycotton tents at prices competitive to polyester tents.

Good with tarp

I love how it's mostly for hanging on a tarp. It feels differnt having a living room on top of your tent.

Convince friends/family!

I loved how unique the setup looked so I got my brother and my cousin who I always camp with to buy these tents too. We use a DOD tarp between us and it's awesome! People at camp sites look at us JEALOUS.
