High Quality Camping Tents

We specialize in Canadian made cotton duck canvas tents. There are plenty of places carrying a dizzying array of brightly coloured nylon tents, and these are fine for summer use, or when your sleeping bag is your primary source of heat. In order to extend the camping season year round however, we’re big fans of using wood stoves in conjunction with canvas tents.

About Tents

Our canvas tents are the perfect cold-weather tent, allowing you to extend the camping season year round when used in conjunction with a wood stove. Canvas tents provide an extremely comfortable experience when out in cool or cold weather.

Canvas is a rugged, highly durable material, that when woven tightly will swell when wet, and become waterproof. It is also breathable, and lets moisture and air transpire through it - meaning a much safer environment when using a stove in a tent. When treated for fire retardancy and mold and mildew resistance, cotton duck is the best choice for using in all weather from cool spring mornings to winter blizzards to cold rainy fall nights.

Types of Tents

Esker Winter Hot Tents Esker Winter Hot Tents are canvas tents ingeniously designed to not require a pole kit, allowing them to pack up extremely small and compact, making them ideal cold weather tents. Choice of floorspace configurations (9’x9’, and 10’x10’). Hand crafted in Ontario, Canada.
Prospector Tents Prospector tents make excellent shelters for hunting trips, as temporary structures on undeveloped properties, or as sleeping quarters at camps and cottages.
