Double layer of canvas on ridge. Eaves reinforced with webbing. Steel D rings on eaves instead of grommets. NO OTHER TENT HAS THIS ADDITIONAL REINFORCEMENT.



  $200 worth of free options for some other tent companies.

           FREE BACK DOOR OR BACK WINDOW.   Free back door or back window -                 $50 free feature.

  • FREE DOUBLE LAYER OF CANVAS ON RIDGE.  Significantly reinforces ridge. Some tent companies charge $75 to $200 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 $45 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.


  • 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 properly and wind blows under the sod cloth creating a tent that is difficult to heat 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

    ***Extension frame will require 6 - 12 extra pieces of 1" EMT conduit depending on tent size, wall height, and extension selected***


    6' side walls provide much more headroom and usable tent space.  6' walls allows a person to get next to a wall without hitting your head against rafters or canvas roof.

     Some companies only have 4' 7" sidewalls which severely restricts how much space you can actually use.

    Strongly recommend you ask your suppliers the finished height of side walls before purchasing so you will not be surprised or disappointed upon delivery.

            6 Foot option only available on FIRE, water and mildew treated tents

    WILDERNESS CANVAS IS ARMY DUCK- DOUBLE FILL. The highest quality canvas made. Canvas is made by weaving threads together, crosswise and lengthwise. The Army Duck canvas has 2 threads twisted together making 1 thread. These double twisted threads are woven into the canvas going both crosswise and lengthwise. Twisting 2 threads together into 1 makes Army Duck canvas stronger more durable and also allows the canvas to breath better.  A 10.1 oz Army Duck wall tents are just as strong as a 12 oz Dual Fill.

    Click ANGLE KITS for information on how to easily build a tent frame from steel conduit.

     PURCHASING TENT FRAME ANGLE KITS and then purchasing 1” inside diameter, galvanized steel electrical conduit at any hardware store is the most economical approach to purchasing a frame.  Normal savings $250-$450 depending on the size of canvas tent and frame.

    ANGLES THAT ACCOMMODATE 3/4" STEEL CONDUIT ARE NOT RECOMMENDED.  3/4" conduit weighs about half as much as 1" conduit.  Consequently, it is only about half as strong as 1" conduit and can't take much of a snow load.


    WILDERNESS TENT AND ANGLE KIT special includes the tent and either a 3 rafter, 4 rafter or 5 rafter angle kit depending upon size of tent ordered.
    Making a tent frame using steel conduit takes 60-90 minutes depending on size of your tent. Steel conduit is readily available at all hardware stores including Home Depot and Lowes.  Only tool required is a hack saw or pipe cutter.  All power tools that cut metal will also work.


    12 x14.  4 Rafter angle kit vs standard 3 rafter.  RIDGE SUPPORT.  When you use a 3 rafter angle kit there will only be 1 rafter in the middle of the frame supporting the entire roof.  A 4 rafter angle kit has 2 rafters evenly spaced in the middle of the frame supporting the roof.  You get twice the roof support with a 4 rafter angle kit frame.  A much better system especially for snow loads.
    16 x 20.  5  Rafter angle kit vs standard 4 rafter.  CONDUIT UTILIZATION and RIDGE SUPPORT.The 4 rafter or 5 rafter angle kit both require the same amount of conduit, 21 pieces.  A 4 rafter angle kit on a 16 x 20 requires 9 cuts of 6' 6" for the ridge and 2 eaves frame poles. Requiring 9 pieces of 10' conduit.   A 5 rafter angle kit has 12 cuts at 5' for the ridge and eaves requiring only 6 pieces of conduit. A much better system especially for snow loads. 
    16 x 24.  6  Rafter angle kit vs 5 rafter. CONDUIT UTILIZATION and RIDGE SUPPORT.  A 5 rafter angle kit requires 26 pieces of conduit while the 6 rafter only requires 25.  A 5 rafter angle kit on a 16 x 24 requires 12  pieces of conduit for 6' cuts. A 6 rafter requires 6 pieces of conduit with 4' 10" cuts. A much better system especially for snow loads.
    PURCHASING TENT FRAME ANGLE KITS and then purchasing 1” inside diameter, galvanized steel electrical conduit at any hardware store is the most economical approach to purchasing a frame.  Normal savings $250-$450 depending on the size of canvas tent and frame.

    FIRE RESISTANT CANVAS: Meets CPAI 84 fire retardant code. If a tent is not specifically treated for fire resistance it will burn quickly. Fire Resistant canvas will only burn when there is a flame source present on the canvas. When you remove the flame source the wall tent will stop burning. However, there is no wall tent made that will not burn.

    Click SLEEPING CAPACITY for each size of tent. It is sometimes difficult to determine the correct size required and hopefully sleeping capacity info page will be of some assistance.

    Extended fly will have stove pipe opening with a tie down flap in the extended section as some people use a stove for cooking outside the tent.

    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.

    Fly is a protective tarp, extend 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.

    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. A fly is strongly recommend at the time of purchase to avoid possible roof issues.  And most importantly, to increase life expectancy of your tent.  Rich


    SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES LIFE OF TENT.  The roof is the first part of a tent that normally 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 by 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.

    SHIPPING BAGS for floors, fly, extended fly, porches and cook shacks options are not large enough to be used for storage bags.

    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.


    At the bottom of this page are OPTION PHOTOS and explanations. Options include porches, cook shacks, fly's (protective tarp), floors. 

    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.
    Leaving a tent set up for extended periods of time. Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough".  The trough is the area at the bottom of roof just before the side horizontal tent frame poles. Canvas should be very tight on frame if set up for extended periods of time and a fly used.  Fly should also be tight to avoid water and snow in an eave trough.  Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.
    My friend bought a wilderness tent and he is very pleased with it.  He steered me to you to buy a tent, angle kit, fly and stove so I will be totally ready for hunting this Fall.  Curtis
    I appreciate everything you did for me.  You helped me pick the right size of wilderness tent for my family and all the options we discussed. The wilderness tent and wilderness stove is better than I had hoped for.  Thanks again. Drew
    I like your superb customer service.  Not many companies help a customer the way Wall Tent Shop does.  The wilderness tent package is great.  Can't wait to go elk hunting.  I am extremely pleased with everything!  Lloyd
    My friend loves your wilderness wall tent.  I was very impressed when he asked me over to show me his new tent.  You make a great tent the way it is reinforced, especially those D rings on the eave webbing.  I have never seen another tent like that.  Now I want a 10x12.  Bob
    This is my third wilderness tent I have purchased from Wall Tent Shop.  I take them hunting.  Now I want to buy 9 more wilderness tents for a glamping business I am starting.  I do like your tents. Harold
    I received my 12x14 tent this morning from FEDEX.  Everything is excellent and exactly as specified on your website.  I am very pleased with this purchase.  I am sure I will have many vacations and hunting trips with it.  Many thanks for an excellent product and prompt service.  Leslie
    Richard, I would like to thank you and Kathy for the help you provided in explaining to me all the features and options available on your wilderness tents. Before I started talking to you I was going to buy from a different company.  I am glad I changed my mind. You guys put new meaning on the words CUSTOMER SERVICE. I have had the tent set up for quite awhile now through some pretty heavy storms. Up to 50 miles an hour.  I love the wilderness tent.  Again thanks for all your help.  Jeff
    Received the tent I ordered. Upon inspection, the Wilderness tent is much better than even I expected. Went elk hunting and it rained 3 inches. Not one leak. The Wilderness stove kept us warm all night. We set up a drying pole tied to the 2 middle angles on our ridge just like you recommended. Boots and clothes were dry in the morning and we were ready to hunt in "dry" clothes. We are totally pleased with the great wall tent and stove. Thanks again. Barry. 
    Thanks for all of your recommendations. I appreciated your time with the numerous calls I made asking so many questions. I know I talked to every salesperson at least one time. I was a first time canvas tent buyer and was somewhat overwhelmed with all the choices available. However, at the end of all my questions and calls I was able to buy the tent, stove, fly and angle kit package that was best for me. I really appreciate the customer service at Wall Tent Shop. Leo
    I want to thank everyone at Wall Tent Shop. You guys are awesome. I got a great tent and stove. Best prices on the internet. Very pleased and thankful. Kris. 
    Super tent and stove. Super prices. Thanks again. Jerry. 
    Tent looks awesome. Canvas and workmanship is great. We are going to enjoy the 14 x16. Bob
