 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 WHAT MAKES THE WILDERNESS TENT A HEAVY DUTY TENT?

 Heavy-duty canvas tents are known for their durability and resilience, making them suitable for various outdoor activities, including camping, hunting, and long-term shelter. Below are some wilderness tent characteristics that make our Wilderness the best heavy duty canvas tent available.

 1. Material:  Wilderness tents are made from ARMY DUCK- DOUBLE FILL CANVAS. The highest quality canvas made. Heavy duty tent 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 heavy duty tent canvas stronger, more durable and also allows the canvas to breathe better.  A 10.1 oz Army Duck wall tents are just as strong as a 12 oz Dual Fill.

 Our canvas strength and quality is second to none. Click to view my canvas strength video where I tie a rope loop to the eave D ring and then I stand on it. I put 200 lbs of pressure on the wilderness heavy duty tent canvas. The Wilderness is an exceptionally strong and durable tent.

  • VIEW 50 TENT PICTURES Some of the tent photos have 1 foot of snow on the roof without a frame to support the roof.  There are very few heavy duty outdoor tents that can withstand such a snow load without a frame supporting the roof.

2. HEAVY DUTY TENT DESIGN: 

  • I designed the wilderness to be the strongest, most reinforced and the best heavy duty camping tent available, Rich. 
  • Double layer of canvas on the tent ridge.
  • Webbing reinforcement on the eave. Most tents have canvas eaves that are not as strong as eaves reinforced with webbing.  
  • D rings sewn into the eave webbing.  Most heavy duty camping tents have grommets pressed into canvas.  This is a weak point. Grommets are easily pulled out of the canvas.
  • Reinforced ridge ends with multiple layers of canvas.
  • Reinforced 4 wall corners with multiple layers of canvas. 

  3. Breathability:  Despite being heavy-duty, the wilderness heavy tent canvas is breathable, allowing air circulation. This helps in reducing condensation inside the tent, making it more comfortable for extended stays.  Synthetic tents tents do not breathe and condensation will occur.  Condensation will be even worse if a propane stove is used.

4. Frame:  Wilderness tent has a frame option of a sturdy steel conduit frame. The frame design is crucial for supporting the weight of the heavy tent canvas and providing a very sturdy tent various weather conditions. 

5. Zippers and Fastenings:  Wilderness heavy-duty canvas tent zippers and fasteners are designed to withstand frequent use and resist wear and tear. The wilderness tent zippers are YKK # 10 and other fasteners are also YKK.  These zippers and fasteners  are heavy-duty as well.  

6.  Water Resistance:  While canvas itself is naturally water-resistant, the wilderness tents are treated for water resistance using marine grade water treatment. This treatment provides a barrier to prevent water penetration.  It also enhances their waterproofing.  

7. Durability:  Designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including rain, wind, snow, sleet and UV exposure. The material is thicker and more rugged than that of standard canvas.  On our customer testimonial page there are several images showing a tree falling on the wilderness tent.  The frame was totally destroyed but there was not a tear anywhere in the canvas.   A testament showing this is one tough heavy duty tent.

 8. Weight:  Wilderness heavy-duty canvas tents are heavier compared to lightweight camping tents.  Lightweight camping tents use lighter canvas or a synthetic material and they are not as strong or as durable.

9. Versatility:  The wilderness tents are very versatile and can be used for various purposes, including family camping, hunting trips, long-term camping, or as a base camp. 

10. Longevity: Due to tent robust construction and high-quality materials, the wilderness heavy-duty canvas tents will have a longer lifespan compared to lighter tents. 

WHAT ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A HEAVY DUTY TENT AND A STANDARD TENT?

 Heavy-duty canvas tents and standard canvas tents serve different purposes and are designed to meet specific needs. Benefits and advantages explained below.

1. Durability:

  • Heavy-duty canvas tent:  Constructed with thicker and more robust materials. Heavy-duty canvas tents are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, including strong winds, heavy rain and snow. 
  • Standard Canvas Tent: While standard canvas tents are durable, they are not be as rugged as heavy-duty versions. They are suitable for moderate weather conditions and will not hold up as well in extreme environments. 

2. Longevity:

  • Heavy-duty canvas tent: Due to their reinforced construction they will have a longer lifespan. They are well-suited for frequent use and extended camping trips. The wilderness is one of the best heavy duty canvas tents for camping available.
  • Standard canvas tent: Standard canvas tents are durable but will not last as long under continuous heavy use or in challenging weather conditions. 

3. Weather Resistance: 

  • Heavy-duty canvas tent: Designed to handle extreme weather, heavy-duty tents often feature additional waterproofing treatments, reinforced seams, and strong zippers, making them more reliable in adverse conditions. 
  • Standard canvas tent: Standard canvas tents can provide protection in various weather conditions. They are not as reliable in extreme situations and will require additional weatherproofing measures. 

4. Stability: 

  • Heavy-duty canvas tent: The reinforced structure and heavier materials contribute to greater stability, making heavy-duty sturdy tents more resistant to gusty winds and adverse weather conditions. 
  • Standard canvas tent: While standard canvas tents can be stable. However, they cannot offer the same level of stability in challenging weather conditions. 

5. Intended Use:

  • Heavy-duty canvas tent: Ideal for long-term camping, hunting, heavy duty winter tents and situations where durability and weather resistance are critical. These tents are often favored by hunters, professional guides, those who camp in rugged terrains and individuals who want a long lasting dependable tent. 
  • Standard canvas tent: Suited for recreational camping in milder conditions where the emphasis is more on comfort than durability. 

Choosing between a heavy-duty canvas tent and a standard canvas tent depends on your specific needs and the camping conditions you expect to encounter. If you plan to camp in challenging environments, possible unexpected snow storms, cold weather, or for an extended period, the wilderness is the better option.  Or, if you want a longer lasting tent and more durable tent the wilderness heavy duty canvas tent is a good option. 

 IS THE WILDERNESS A HEAVY DUTY WATERPROOF TENT? 

Yes. Canvas is naturally water repellant. Adding marine grade water treatment to our wilderness canvas provides another barrier to water.  However, there are thousands of needle holes in all  tents.  When canvas becomes wet it will swell up and should close the needle holes. That being said, I strongly recommend a tent tarp/fly to cover the roof because all the needle holes may not swell and there could be a small leak. A tent with the tarp/fly will guarantee you have heavy duty waterproof tent, Rich.  The wilderness is also a great heavy duty winter tent. Heavy duty winter tents are required, especially, for those who like to get off the grid in the middle of no where. A solid, reliable, sturdy tent is required.

IS THE WILDERNESS A HEAVY DUTY CAMPING TENT OR A HEAVY DUTY CANVAS TENT?

The wilderness is both. Some individuals refer to the wilderness as a heavy duty camping tent. Others call it a heavy duty canvas tent.  However you want to describe the wilderness it is a very well built and sturdy tent. 

HOW CAN WALL TENT SHOP OFFER HEAVY DUTY TENTS FOR SALE  SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN COMPETITORS?

We have our canvas heavy duty tents made 500 at a time. Other companies usually make their canvas heavy tent after a customer orders. Basically, our low prices are a result of economy of scale. Additionally, my approach is sell more tents for less, Rich.

CAN THE WILDERNESS TENT BE USED AS A HEAVY DUTY STORAGE TENT?

Yes. If a person plans on keeping a heavy duty storage tent up during the winter extra rafters are required for snow loads.  If snow is possible, a minimum of rafters every 2 feet is required just like a house. Then there is no guarantee a heavy duty storage tent will survive heavy snow loads. It is recommended removing snow daily and not let water or ice build up along the roof sidewall trough. Some customers also use the wilderness as a heavy duty work tent.  These tents are taken to the job location. 

BIG CAMPING TENTS FOR SALE?

Our big camping tents for sale are the 16 x20 and 16x24. If you need larger camping tents we have 8' long separate rooms. The separate room is the width of the tent and attaches to the main tent. This separate room is sometimes called a cook shack. Big outdoor heavy duty tents are required for large groups. However, these big outdoor heavy duty tents require a minimum of two people for set up. Three or four individuals for an easy set up is recommended.

DOES WALL TENT SHOP SELL HEAVY DUTY METAL TENT STAKES?

We have 18" steel stakes for the eave guy ropes. 12" stakes for the side walls.  Heavy duty outdoor tents require big steel stakes.  Do not use fiberglass or small thin metal stakes on your expensive big heavy duty camping tent. Your big tent is a big sail that will fly away in windy conditions, Rich.
