RMOWP’s newest corporate friend, PahaQue Wilderness, was formed in 1997 with one goal – to develop a better tent for family and car campers. Since that time, PahaQue has lead the industry with innovative design, quality and performance.
Many of the tent design features that they pioneered have become standard on family camping tents across the outdoor industry, and the company remains committed to developing tent designs that set the bar for quality and performance.
Any tent performs well in fair weather, but PahaQue’s award winning tents, shelters, and hammocks provide the performance and peace of mind that makes your outdoor experience the best it can be, whether in your backyard or in the back country, far from civilization.
