WILDERNESS WALL TENT STANDARD FEATURES
are $200 worth of options on some other tent companies.
- 5' SIDEWALLS - provide much more headroom. Not 4' 8" like some tents. 6' Sidewalls also available as an upgrade. Walls are measured from the outside of tent.
- WALLS ARE FULL 5' OF CANVAS. Some unusual designed tents have only 4' walls with 18" of vinyl sewn onto the bottom of the tent. The 18" sod cloth cannot be staked down and wind blows under the sod cloth creating a tent that can't be heated properly in cold weather. Additionally, the sod cloth will flap in the wind making for a less than an enjoyable camping experience.
- Tents must have the canvas walls touching the ground in order to stake the walls to the ground to prevent wind blowing under the tent walls.
- Windows are 30" x 30" and have screens. Not small triangle windows that provide much less ventilation
- FREE BACK DOOR OR BACK WINDOW. No other tent company offers a free back door or back window - your choice. A $50 free feature.
- FREE DOUBLE LAYER OF CANVAS ON RIDGE. Significantly reinforces ridge. Some tenty companies charge $75 to $100 for this feature. Very necessary when using lodge pole frames. Tent roof will tear or rip easily if lodge pole is not smooth when pole is being pushed through the ridge pole openings.
- FREE STORM FLAP/COLORADO DOOR. 8" storm flap with buckle protects front & back door zippers. Helps keeps out the wind. A $35 to $115 option on some tents.
FREE REINFORCED EAVE WITH WEBBING ENTIRE LENGTH OF EAVE. Much stronger than eaves with no reinforcement.
FREE STEEL D RINGS SEWN INTO WEBBING. Much stronger than tents with metal grommets pressed into canvas eaves.
STOVE JACK OPENING. 5 1/2 inches. 6 inch available by cutting out just before stitched 6 inch pattern. Most stoves require a 5 1/2 inch hole otherwise there is too much stove pipe slack causing the pipe to move excessively during windy conditions. Stove jack is located in the roof in the front left corner of your tent - 30" from the front door and 30" from the top of the sidewall.
VINYL SOD CLOTH. 10" vinyl sod cloth sewn onto bottom of the wall. Acts as an air seal and keeps canvas off the ground. Prevents water wicking up the canvas walls.
TENT BAG. Some companies charge $35 for a tent bag. Rolled up inside of tent.
RIDGE OPENINGS FOR LODGE POLE. Flaps seal openings when lodge pole not used.
FRONT ZIPPERED DOOR, YKK #10. The highest quality heavy duty zipper made.
- 200 FEET OF ROPE AND 20 TENSIONERS are rolled up inside tent.
IMMEDIATE SHIPPING - NO PAYMENT Call for more info on PAYPAL program.

FLY IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
A fly is a special tarp that extends the life expectancy of your tent. Also, there are thousands of needle holes in your tent and occasionally a needle hole does not close when the tent is wetted down. The only way to insure your tent does not leak is to put a fly on your tent.
I price my fly's approximately 25-50% below my competitors to encourage individuals to use a fly to protect their tent roof. Rich
EVERY MONTH WE GET CALLS FROM CUSTOMERS WHO BUY A FLY AFTER USING THEIR TENT. Normally customers have spark holes in their tent roof. Or dirt, pitch and tar on their roof that won't come off. Or the canvas is deteriorating from UV exposure. A fly is strongly recommend at the time of purchase to avoid possible roof issues. And most importantly, a fly will extend the life expectancy of your tent. Rich
RECOMMENDATION: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR TENT ROOF AND FLY TAUT SO WATER CAN QUICKLY BE REMOVED FROM YOUR TENT. Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough" which is a low area just before the sidewall created by a not tight roof or loose fly.
Canvas should be very taut on a tent frame, especially, if set up for extended periods of time and a fly always used. Fly should also be tight to avoid water in an eave trough. Water will eventually go through the fly if saturated for weeks. Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.
FLY ADVANTAGES- SUMMARY
SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES LIFE OF TENT BY PROTECTING ROOF. The roof is the first part of a tent that fails.
Prevents stove spark burn holes in roof. It is much easier and cheaper to replace a fly, if necessary, than a tent.
Provides another moisture barrier to prevent leaks.
Protects the cotton canvas from UV rays. Put a cotton shirt outside during the summer and see how UV rays destroys the cotton.
Keeps roof clean. When camping under a tree, a tree rains down dirt during rain storms.
Prevents pitch and tar getting on the roof. Removing tree pitch and tar requires a harsh detergent which destroys the roof water, mildew and fire treatment. Then you will have leaks in your roof.
Fly provides 1 foot overhang on each side of tent carrying water and snow 1 foot away from side wall.
Water and snow slides off fly quicker than canvas roof as the fly is completely smooth.
Provides some insulation value when there is an air gap between fly and roof.
When you receive your tent, set it up, and completely wet it down. Especially on the seams, both inside and outside seams on your tent. Wetting down your tent will cause the canvas to shrink and help close the thousands of needle holes in your tent.
STATES THAT REQUIRE FIRE TREATED CANVAS TENTS: CA, LA, MI, MA, MN, NJ and NY.

TENTS ON PLATFORMS
I strongly recommend you read my recommendations regarding placing wall tents on a platform, click platforms.
I strongly recommend (click) tent frame leg supports on platforms which are screwed onto the platform. Wood platforms are smooth surfaces compared to the ground. You don't want to have tent frame legs slide off a platform during high winds.

I am using my 12 x 14 Wilderness tent here in Arkansas. I took it deer hunting last fall in the Ouchita Mountains. When I was at camp a guy came by and looked at the tent. He wanted to know where I got it, he wanted one. The next day a game warden stopped and said he loved the tent and was going to get one also, so he too wrote down all the information on where to get it. You will be receiving several more orders from Arkansas. Thanks again for such a great solid warm tent.
Rich, thanks for explaining all the different features and options options available on the Wilderness Tent and Wilderness Stove. Made buying the tent much easier once I knew what the hell I was doing. Thanks. Pete
Great tent. Really impressed when I took the tent out of the box and examined it. My boys and I can't wait to take it hunting. Gilbert
I was really impressed by how helpful you guys were when I was buying my tent. Being new to camping I really didn't know much, as you probably knew from my questions. Thanks for helping me select the best size tent and stove for my family. Ken
Hello, I purchased a wilderness tent a while ago for this year's elk hunt. Your tent is fantastic! We headed out scouting a week before season opened. While setting it up a storm blew in on the mountain we were hunting. It blew and rained like the dickens, your tent stayed dry and toasty, most of all it stayed up. What a tent! Mathew
Rich, Thanks for a great tent. Will be purchasing an extended fly for it this coming year. Looking forward to doing business with you again. Your prompt service and knowledge is very much appreciated. Quality of product is excellent just like the service. Thanks again. Larry. Will send pictures later on.
I love the tent. I bought your wall tent for my grandchildren for a place to hang out. Great tent. Alan
Tyler, I know my order was very complicated. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain everything in great detail to me. Made my decision on what I needed much easier. I will get many years of hunting out of this outstanding tent. Gary
Tent worked out perfectly for us. We used it in Colorado and had 3 days at 30-65 mph winds. The tent didn't budge. Strong canvas tent coupled with the heavy duty rebar tent stakes you guys sell saved us. We love the tent. The cut list you provided for the frame fits like a glove. Thanks again. Dale
The tent set up easily. The angle kit is spectacular. The angle kit instructions made measuring the tent and cutting the steel conduit easy. The wilderness 4 stove is a charm. I set it up for curing and it works wonderfully. I am certainly looking forward to spending time in the woods now. Thanks again J.R.
