These outfitter tents are made of the highest quality 10.10 oz. double-fill Army Duck canvas that comes standard with a water repellent and mildew resistant treatment, also, available with Fire Retardant finish. The canvas wall tent will withstand the elements to keep you safe, warm and dry.

Primary Source of Material- 100 % Cotton Canvas:
Our canvas tents are made from 100% cotton. Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants which are drought tolerant and requires very less water to grow. Cotton is the largest natural fiber supplying the global demand for textile products. It is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an environmentally-friendly fiber throughout its entire product life cycle. Most chemical fibers are petroleum based, which means they come from nonrenewable resources.
It’s made from Grade-A premium Double Fill “Army Duck Canvas” using weightless WR (Water + Mildew) treatment and maintaining the natural breathability of 100% cotton using our proprietary brand of Canvas DYNAGUARD! Using a Silicone based chemical allows us to achieve much higher water repellency as opposed to the traditional wax treatment which adds extra weight and inconsistent water repellency. It comes with a fire retardant finish as well. Our fabrics are tested by an independent lab and benchmarked on every production run to ensure consistency of critical factors such as:
- Hydrostatic Pressure Head Test
- Mildew Soil Burial Test
- Tensile & Tear Strength
- Color Fastness to Sunlight
Double Stitch Reinforcement: All our seams are double stitched, corners are reinforced for added strength.
Side Wall & Center Height: The Side walls are standard 5’ high and Center Peak height at 8'5" to make a spacious unobstructed space inside the tent
Zippers: Top rated military grade YKK Zippers for maximum functionality which are the best in trade, not only on doors but also on windows to ensure maximum durability and functionality.
Stove Compatibility: The tent includes 5” oval heat resistant silicon coated Stove Jack opening with a weather flap allowing for a 5” round pipe to fit perfectly with the pitch of the roof. It is designed to withstand extremely high temperatures and to protect tent fabric from melting in direct contact with a hot stove pipe.
KEEP ALL FLAME AND HEAT SOURCES AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT FABRIC
The tent is not fireproof. The fabric will ignite and burn if left in continuous contact with any open flame or other sources of ignition.
Canvas tents are not for use with open fire pits. Fire safety is the responsibility of the user. We encourage you to educate yourself and practice vigilant fire safety. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns at any time. It is imperative to acknowledge the local rules and regulations and if you are unsure, to ask about camp site / local policies or refer to the local civil protection/defense, forestry, fire service websites for further information. Always check local fire restrictions prior to starting a fire as rules and regulations may change frequently throughout the year.

Ground Sheet: Heavy duty Poly Vinyl High Density Coated 16 oz. Groundsheet to fit tent and keep the elements out.

Tent Wall skirting is made from weatherproof, high UV resistant, heavy duty 16 oz. Polyvinyl for a weather tight seal and to soil it down from all the elements. The base of the tent is reinforced with webbing and contains heavy duty brass grommets, so that you can stake your tent from the inside or outside. The mud flap can either be folded inside or extended outside the assembled tent in any terrain and weather condition

Integrated Mesh Door & Windows: Our tents have standard bug mesh door and windows made from high quality PVC Dipped UV Resistant No-See-Um Mesh to protect you from bugs and critters that may cause vector borne diseases like Dengue, Malaria or Zika. The protective mesh will keep the tiny insects at bay so you can enjoy the view yet stay protected. The windows and doors can be fully closed from the inside of the tent and insect-free mesh doors and windows allow you to open the tent for a breeze or a clear view without worrying about bugs or mosquitoes.

The following precautions should be taken when camping:

- It is better to not cook inside a tent, but if you are, do not leave cooking unattended. Make sure grills, cooking appliances and similar must not be placed nearer than 1 meter to tent canvas. There should be no use of open fires or glowing charcoal inside tents or near tent canvas - fire can spread very quickly. There should be no use of open fires or glowing charcoal inside tents or near tent canvas as there is a significant risk from the buildup of Carbon Monoxide (CO), particularly in a confined space inside the tent. All flexible tubes and couplings to the gas burner should be checked for leakage and that it is in good order

Propane heaters put out a considerable amount of water vapor when they burn and build condensation inside canvas tent. Good ventilation and airflow is an absolute necessity not only to help prevent condensation, but also for safety reasons. The heater should have carbon monoxide detector but try to avoid running it all night while sleeping and it should work okay.

What is the difference between the water repellent, water resistance and waterproof?
Water-resistant fabric is the lowest level of water protection as it is only able to resist water penetration to some extent but not entirely. Tightly woven fabrics will offer a degree of water resistance, as it takes some time for the water to seep through the material. Water-repellent cannot be easily penetrated by water, especially as a result of being treated for such a purpose with a breathable finish impregnated as surface coating. It beads on the outside instead and fall off the fabric. Waterproof material is impervious to water.

There is a fly available for all Wall Tent sizes and we suggest you purchase one for added protection.
