Canadian Prospector Tents

Tents have been in use for thousands of years and perhaps longer. It is believed that the first cloth tents were made of hemp. Hemp fibers were pounded out to make string, rope and canvas. The cloth was then used to make tents. Wall tents are rugged four-sided shelters, much like a small cabin, with a peaked roof that slopes down to four canvas walls. The military began using wall tents as early as the 18th century. Then again, during the civil war, wall tents were used extensively. They were popular as army hospitals. Two large wall tents, fourteen feet squared, would be stacked end to end to form a medical ward for wounded and

dieing soldiers. Each tent could hold up to eight injured men. Later, tents continued to be used by hunters, trappers and gold prospectors throughout the eighteen and nineteen hundreds. Even today, the wall tent is in high demand. The tents are used for shelter by the US Army in Iraq. They are popular for use in refuge camps. Nomadic peoples have also taken advantage of the rugged construction and comfort of the modern wall tent.

These wall tents have been used by Natives, outfitters and sportsmen all across Canada, from B.C. to Newfoundland and as as far north as Baffin Island. Whether you are hunting, fishing, trapping or camping you will find that our products will provide you with a warm and very comfortable camp.
Our tents are made with 10.10 oz Sunforger marine canvas, treated fire retardant, water and mildew repellant. General features include a zippered door, an adjustable stovepipe ring with a flap - position optional - reinforced brass grommets, rope, sod cloth, nylon loops, double stitching, reinforced peaks and corners and a heavy duty tent bag. Windows are optional.

All our tents have 5' walls. Ridge beam heights go from 7.5' (8x10 tent), 8' (10x12 and 10x15), 8.5' (12x14), 9' (14x16 and 14x20) to 9.5' (16x20). These are very dependable wall tents. Although our canvas is water repellant we recommend using a tarp -or fly- to keep the tent dry even during weeks of poor weather. With proper care your tent will give you a lifetime of service

When comparing wall tents it is very important to know what type of canvas the tent is made from. There are many types of canva and they are not all equal. Heavier canvas is not always better. A good analogy is comparing silk to burlap. We prefer to use Sunforger preshrunk 10.10 oz canvas, also known as marine grade or boatshrunk. It is the very best canvas for wall tents, and it won't shrink more than about 3%. All wall tents sold in Canada must be treated with fire retardant rated to CPA1-84. Be aware that many states in the U.S. aren't required to treat their canvas with fire retardant.
