Hunter's choice for canvas tents

The Sibley ProTech Series has been designed specifically with hunters in mind – burlier canvas, 360 degrees of ventilation, heavy duty flooring, even the poles, stakes, and guy ropes are beefier. In this review we’ll dive deep into the specifics of what hunters love about the Sibley Tent:

Canvas tents have long been the shelter of choice for hunters, soldiers, guides, and mountain men. High quality canvas is durable, breathable, and naturally waterproof – a few of the many reasons why canvas tents rule. Serious outdoorsmen agree that canvas is the best tent material for basecamps, but dad’s old wall tent misses the mark when it comes to performance and usability. Modern hunters are upgrading to the Sibley Bell Tent– CanvasCamp’s reboot of a teepee inspired US military design with a long history of proven performance in the field.
The shed-like shape of wall tents make them relatively easy to manufacture – and therefore widely available. The structural integrity of the tent rests solely on the pole frame. Wall tents of old relied on long straight timber poles – which were generally cut from (and left in) the immediate area surrounding camp - the canvas was the only portion that needed to be transported.
In a misguided attempt to improve portability, modern wall tents now rely on modular pole systems that are both heavy, complicated, and time consuming to set up. More poles, ropes, stakes, and joints are added to the structure as the tents scale up to compensate for the forces of wind and weather that catch the large flat sails that form the walls and the roof. If you’ve ever used a wall tent for your hunt camp you know how much time making and breaking camp takes away from scouting, glassing, and hunting.
"I purchased the Pro Tech 500 about a year ago and was supposed to go on a weekend long deer hunting trip along with several other friends. Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to go but luckily this year we were able to go. There were 4 of us in the Pro Tech along with cots and all our gear and there was so much room in the tent still left over. This is a roomy tent and we didn't feel crowded. We even got some rain and wind that weekend and the tent performed perfectly. Everyone else was so impressed with the tent and I absolutely love it. When you're in deer base camp and the performance of your equipment is critical, it's comforting to know that your tent can pass any test thrown at it. The Sibley Bell tent by CanvasCamp is worth every penny and then some. Kudos for a great, quality made product." - Alvin
Hunters are now rediscovering the Sibley Tent – a tent design that has been around since 1856 when Colonel Henry Hopkins Sibley patented his version of the native American teepee. The cone shaped canvas and single center pole make the Sibley easy to pitch and pack, and extremely wind and weather resistant. Unlike the wall tent – Sibley Tents rely on tensile strength and thus require the precision craftsmanship of an experienced tentmaker. Accept no substitues!

One of the most important factors in ensuring a successful hunt is location. Setting yourself up with a solid basecamp to launch from gives you the ability to hunt longer and harder. Making and breaking camp quickly is crucial for hunters. The Sibley Tent is easy to use - giving you the ability to get in, get on the animals, and get out.
Adapting to changing weather conditions is essential for any sportsman. A seasoned outdoorsman will tell you “there’s no bad weather, only bad clothing” – the same holds true for tents. Any quality canvas tent should keep you dry, but the Sibley Tent has been designed for more than just waterproofing. Sibley Tents are packed with features to keep you and your gear camping comfy in sun, wind, rain, snow, mud, sticks, and mosquitos.
The Sibley ProTech comes with everything you need to set up camp right out of the box. It’s also compatible with a range of purpose-built Sibley accessories that enable you to dial in your set up for specific environment. From wood burning tent stoves for freezing temperatures chasing elk in Colorado, to Sibley Flys for prolific rain in the Pacific North West: Sibley Tents can be geared up with everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Some of the best hunting takes place when there’s snow on the ground – animals are easy to track in snow and hunter density drops considerably in areas far from the nearest hunting cabin. Sibley Tents are designed for use in winter conditions – extending your season and increasing your odds of filling the freezer.
