 Features and Benefits:

  • Virtually unbreakable solid core spring steel poles – never worry about dealing with a snapped pole again.
  • Exclusive rip stop poly/cotton canvas – the only tents that can be set up semi-permanently without fear of fading or deteriorating in the harsh Australian sun. No other tents dare to make this claim.
  • Cooler – the impregnated canvas is not plastic coated so it breathes, allowing condensation and hot air to escape - making it more comfortable on hot nights at Jamboree.
  • Quieter – These tents don’t rattle and shake when the winds pick up. Compare this to a floppy dome tent or pop up tent that rattles all night in the wind.
  • Stronger – Much stronger structure in cross winds, holding their shape firm and stable.
  • Durable – Hands down will last up to 10 years longer in the Australian sun than most other dome tents. A typical nylon or polyester dome tent will start to deteriorate after 50 days in the summer sun. This canvas will last you 20 years. 
  • Darker – the thicker canvas will provide a gentler morning sunrise than the thinner polyester/nylon tents which glow brightly at first light. 
  • Stay dry - the canvas is impregnated with waterproofing during manufacture. It is not a coating. It will perform for many years and can easily be re-treated after 10-15 years. Poly/nylon dome tents are coated and once that coating wears off, it cannot be re-applied. Canvas tents are different and can be restored. 
  • Strong rip stop UV resistant shadecloth netting used on the windows and doors.
  • Super Heavy Duty 550g waterproof PVC bucket floor. These floors are as thick as we can stitch and will last the life of the tent.

Whilst you pay alot more up-front, consider the total life of the tent for your Group. With propert care, this tent will last for 20 years+. That makes it a great investment for your Group and a great investment for the planet.
