About Us

Catoma Logo

We started designing tents in 1993 in Montgomery, Alabama. Our first venture was developing a shelter for the United States Forest Service, in particular their Wilderness Firefighters. We needed a name for our company and with our facility located on the banks of Catoma Creek in Montgomery, Alabama, we decided to borrow its name and Catoma was born. Catoma was founded by outdoor enthusiasts and that experience greatly impacts the thought process behind the design of our products. We listen to our customers and we hope that it shows when you use our gear. We’ve worked hard to assemble a line of products that reflect our dedication to making exceptional products for exceptional people who will push them to their limits.

These are the people that make up the Catoma brand. One tough group of individuals that need tough gear that we know will test our gear to the limits.


Our heritage lies in designing and building lightweight but tough shelters for our military’s elite. We’re staying true to our roots. With over 300,000 shelters sold to the United States Armed Forces since 2003, we’re proud to stand behind our battle-tested products.

Wilderness Firefighting
