Inner Tent 500
For our Sibley 500 bell tents we have designed 3 different kinds of inner tents. The standard Inner Tent 500 will split your bell tent in two halves, making one half a confined area where you can enjoy a well-deserved sleep without insects bothering you. Check out the Inner Tent 500 1/4 or the Inner Tent 500 II for other possibilities.
Inner Tents turn half your bell tent into an enclosed sleeping compartment for additional bug protection, privacy, and some degree of additional insulation. Perfect for glamping!
The Inner Tent hangs from the D ring permanently welded on to the center pole of every Sibley Bell Tent. The Inner Tent can be installed in multiple locations, although most people choose to install it on the opposite side of the main entry door. Made from ultralight cotton canvas and no-see-um mesh, the Inner Tent is both compact, easy to use, and can be installed by 1 person in under 5 minutes. Canvas carry cag included for transport and storage.
Sibley Bell Tent Compatibility
The Inner Tent 500 is compatible with all size 500 Sibley Bell Tents in the Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate, and Pro and ProTech models. All Sibley Bell Tents are compatible with an inner tents of a corresponding size, except for the Diamond Fire Series.
Chandeliers which are also designed to hang from the D ring on a center pole cannot be used in conjunction with an inner tent.
Inner Tent Bathtub Floor
Every Inner Tent has sewn in attached (540 gr/m² or 15.93 oz/yd²) PVC groundsheet that is 10cm (4 inches) tall; the same bathtub style on our Sibley Tents. When used in conjunction with the groundsheets included on the Deluxe, Ultimate, Pro, and ProTech series, the inner tent ground sheet offers twice the protection and helps keep sand and dirt tracked into the tent out of your sleeping area. When used in a bell tent without a groundsheet you can rely on the protection of the inner tent groundsheet, leaving the other half of the tent floor exposed.
Windows and Doors
All Inner Tents feature full-height double-doors, each with its own zippered screen and canvas privacy doors. This allows either side to be completely open, closed with just the screen material, or completely closed with the canvas door for complete privacy. On the 500, two zippered half moon windows allow you access the windows on the bell tent’s side walls even when the inner tent in installed. The inner tent provides screened in protection even when the side rolls are rolled up on your bell tent.
The walls of the Inner Tent do not make content with the bell tent canopy, which creates dead air space between the two. This layer of insulation helps keeps your sleeping area both cooler in hot weather, and warmer in cold weather. Keep in mind that the walls of the inner tent are made of no-see-um mesh; so if your primary goal is adding insulation to the tent a Sibley Bell Tent Fly is a better option.
