Wall Tents
Traditional Canvas Wall Tent

The traditional wall tent, sometimes called a cabin tent, has a history and a legacy as old as our great country.  A traditional wall tent provided shelter from the most severe elements for our early pioneers, trappers, miners, and hunters. With all of today's fancy campers and motor homes, the interest still remains in the lore of "real camping".  The use of a wall tent contributes to this feeling.  We like to think of it as a step back to unhurried times, a reflection of Grandpa's stories of how it used to be, cowboy coffee, beans-n-bacon, and tall tales around the camp fire. The wall tent has passed the test of time, with families handing down tents from one generation to another, along with precious memories.

Idaho Canvas offers only grade-A, cotton duck canvas. The treatment on the cotton canvas is applied at a USA finishing plant and provides a treated canvas that is fire-retardant to California Marshall fire specifications with water-proofing and mildew inhibitors.  New and innovative designs ensure the highest standards of construction, materials and comfort.     Available in natural canvas color only.

Idaho Canvas has teamed up with Montana Canvas to offer a wall tent selection with old-fashioned quality but built for today's tough applications. Extremely rugged, canvas tents are ideal  for any base camp or expedition -- for any hunter, herder, or scout needing a durable and dependable shelter. Each tent is made one at a time,  without compromise in materials and quality.  With over 125 years of combined knowledge in wall tent design and manufacturing, we can supply a tent that will out last the competition.

Canvas tents are not really 100% waterproof. Capillary action makes the water too big to fit through the small holes in the weaving. But if something like a finger or even a tent pole touches the tent in the right spot, the surface tension is disturbed and water begins to flow through the fabric.  Another reason a tent may leak is because as it gets older, the holes where it was stitched together have stretched and become larger, allowing water in through the holes. Other reasons may be leaky zippers and small rips in the canvas.

It is highly recommended that you use a quality POLY RAIN FLY over your tent.  When used regularly, a quality rain fly will protect your tent from UV, rain, dirt and debris, tree sap, and will extend the life of the fabric.  Our rain flys are made from a heavy, white, 12 mil polyethylene reinforced fabric.  Our rain flys allow for 12" drip flaps on the lower wall sides and a 3" drip flap on the overcast peak sides.  Rain flys have reinforced rope hems in the lower wall sides with grommets set at 24" spacing, and grommets on the tent overcast peak sides at 60" spacing.  Rope and tensioners for the rain flys are not included. A stove jack can be installed in a rain fly but is not included as a standard option.  Extended length poly rain flys can also be used as an entryway porch cover.

Idaho Canvas Products offers MESH GROUND TARPS to use as a ground floor covering inside your canvas wall tent.  The mesh ground tarps are made of a heavy, 11x11 thread count, PVC coated polyester mesh with a 70% closed rating.  Using the heavy PVC mesh fabric as a ground tarp allows the small dust and dirt particles to fall through and not collect on the floor, keeping the inside of your tent cleaner.  The mesh fabric also allows water from foot traffic, spills, and rain to also fall through and not puddle on the floor inside your wall tent.  The heavy PVC mesh fabric is very durable and allows for a non skid surface to walk on.
