WHO WE ARE
We started doing thorough research on Mongolian Ger in 2012 and introduced a buildable small souvenir Mongol ger with brand name NAAD in 2016. In addition, I have had experience of assembling and disassembling Mongol ger from my childhood. With the experience and new idea, I’ve been developing GerTent as a travel tent since 2018.
And now it is ready to be introduced into the market.

OUR DESIGN APPROACH
The Mongolian Ger is a portable shelter with a unique architectural structure that was introduced 3,000 years ago for easy transportation with quick assembly and disassembly process.
It is a sturdy structure with round shape which provides comfortable living space. Because supporting posts along with wooden joints and ropes create a strong structure, Mongolian Ger can be used throughout four seasons with additional felt insulation.
A BRIEF HISTORY
We are introducing you a brand –new travel product GERTENT that has the best features of both Mongol ger and modern tent. It offers comfortable living space that is round and strong stability of Mongol ger and simple portability of modern tent.
During our travel in 2017, we’ve experienced a powerful rainstorm that flattened our tent with water flooding and strong wind which forced us to spend the night in a nearby nomad’s ger and wait for the storm to pass. Mongolia has four seasons with extreme weather conditions. Because of the steppes and flat landscape, it is no surprise to have strong wind blow. However, the Mongolian Ger we stayed in didn’t have any issues due to its structure and round shape. From that night, we’ve decided to create a travel tent that is as sturdy and comfortable as Mongolian ger.

GERTENT: INNOVATION & QUALITY
GerTent can be assembled in 10-15 minutes by two people. As for the materials used for production includes aluminum 6061 for the metal parts, Poly cotton canvas for tent cover, 540gsm ripstop PVC for the floor. We’ve successfully tested the tent against strong winds of the great plains of Mongolia.
As for the design, we’ve picked the round circular shape of the Mongolian ger which allows it to withstand strong winds due to its shape. In addition, the round shape allows better insulation of warmth, even distribution of light, and comfortable living space.
Further, we’ve included the wooden joint mechanics of the ger into our product to withstand wind and rain with ease.
