Panther Primitives Tents, tipis and more - Our first marquee tent and fly was made by Panther. After all of these years, that little marquee that we outgrew is still going strong and we use it for a guest house in the good weather. The fly gets set up in the spring and taken down in the fall out by our pond and is none the worse for wear. Panther has been around a long time and is one of the best in the business, they are very friendly and accommodating.
