The Sibley series of canvas bell tents has been featured here on Silodrome a couple of times over the past few years and they’ve always been hugely popular. Sibley use heavy-duty cotton canvas (320 g/m²) in the construction of their tents, and before the tent is made the canvas is impregnated to proof it against dirt, ultraviolet radiation, water and fungus.
The tents come in a variety of sizes to suit different applications, you can order a large one that’ll sleep an entire family, or you can order a smaller, lighter tent that’ll comfortably sleep 4. The plastic and nylon tents for sale at most camping stores may be cheap to make and cheap to buy, but they lack the style, elegance and feel of classic 19th century camping.
