The difference between the Sibley 500 and the Sibley 500 Deluxe is that our Deluxe range comes with a very heavy duty groundsheet being permanently connected to your tent. Consequently, you cannot roll up the sides of the tent. The Deluxe groundsheet feels soft to the touch, and yet it is a lot thicker (PVC of 540 g/m²) and more durable than any other groundsheet you may have seen.

- The sides don't roll up because the heavy duty ground sheet is attached to the tent. The Deluxe ground sheet is made out of PVC and weighs 540 g/m². This very high quality ground sheet feels soft to the touch but is very durable and of course 100% waterproof.
- Heavy-duty cotton canvas (320 g/m²).
- Fabulous sand-like colour creating a warm and romantic vibe.
- 100% Waterproof! Moreover, the material is treated to be even more water and mould resistant. The inside of the tent never feels damp or moist and remains 100% dry even after being out in the rain for days.
- This tent is very comfortable for 2 to 4 people, but easily sleeps 8 as 4 queen size beds can be fitted. Sleeps up to 12 kids.
- Unlike some Sibley tents this one has an A-frame entrance (178 cm/ 5.84 ft high) which creates a porch to stop the rain from coming in. Without this feature the tent is harder to access and leaks along the entrance flap.
- Zipped front door for fast access. Furthermore, the corners of the door have a flap that allows power cables into the tent without having to make a hole or affect flood proofing.
- Can be fitted with our specially designed Sibley tent stoves or with your own stove and an 'Exit I' connecting piece.
- Unlike many of the copies out there, our tents are European tested to BS5852 standards. This is the 'cigarette test', which shows that the tent will not ignite when burnt by the likes of a cigarette.
- 4 windows complete with integrated mosquito nets.
- Takes 1 person only 7 to 10 minutes to pitch.
- Beautifully made quality built. Double stitching all around and reinforced key points.
- All packs down into a matching canvas bag small enough to go on the back of a motorbike or in a small trunk (90 cm, Ø 40 cm).
- Optional: the tent can be upgraded with a mesh door of the type that is listed under "Sibley Accessories".
This is a high quality European spec Sibley tent. There are copies about but our tents are very different to the bright white imports from China and India. They have been fully tested to the European standards and carry the official kite mark to show for it.
