The Kensho 2 design takes many of the best ideas in tent design of the last decade, makes a few small improvements, and was designed from the ground up to be easy to make. Most importantly its completely customisable by the maker – seam locations and construction sequence make it easy to add any accessories you want (pockets, vents, gear lofts, doggie doors, extra tie outs, anything you can think of!).

Material choices are so critical in tent design (but also very subjective!), so making it yourself is probably the only way to get exactly what you want. Want a camo DCF roof and a silnylon floor? Pink tent? Rainbow tent? X-pac floor? Extra heavy floor? DCF roof with silnylon doors? You can’t buy tents made like this, so you’ll have to make one. Trust me, it’s easier than you think. These plans give you all the difficult math and expensive prototyping already done – all the dimensions to make a tent that will work and be sized just right, along with sewing and construction guidelines that will make it very easy to construct.


Included in the download .zip file:

  • A 35-page PDF document with pattern-schematics, materials list, tools required, and full assembly instructions – complete with photos, diagrams and my personal tips and tricks.
  • Full size printable PDF patterns (however, I’ve designed this tent and the instructions so that printing the patterns is not necessary).

Important notes:

  • While you don’t need to be a great sewer to make this tent, you do need some experience sewing. The instructions are written with a target audience in mind that has some experience knowledge of  sewing. If you’ve made a good stuff sack, tarp, quilt, or pack – then I reckon you’ve got the necessary skills to take this project on, no problem.
  • Instructions are in imperial units only (feet and inches). Sorry, no metric patterns available at this time. If you live outside the US you’ll need to either convert units or get yourself a measuring tape that does inches.
  • Estimated cost of materials is between $100 – $200 USD. This can vary greatly depending on material choices. Can be less than that, can be more than that.
  • Estimated build time is between 8-30 hours. Highly dependant on your skills/experience/equipment.
  • This pattern/plan is for personal use only, and is only for the individual who purchases it. Please do not distribute. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.
