Elk Mountain Tents has several great canvas wall tents to choose from, and their 13 x 20 option is amazing for group camping. This high-quality tent is made from some of the best canvas material you can find. Elk Mountain uses a unique polyester material in its canvas, which offers many great advantages over traditional cotton canvas. This material is much stronger and more durable than cotton, with a breaking strength of 382 lbs. (fill direction) and 449 lbs. (warp direction). In contrast, cotton has a breaking strength of 241 lbs. (fill) and 382 lbs. (warp). The tear strength is also significantly higher, at 40 lbs. (fill) and 67 lbs. (warp), approximately double the strength of the cotton you would usually find in canvas tents. This material should also last a lot longer, as it doesn’t grow mold or mildew like cotton does and is much more resistant to ultraviolet rays and rough weather. The tent is waterproof on its own without a rainfly, and it doesn’t absorb water as cotton does. Other aspects of the tent include a stove jack for a wood stove, 6 windows with mesh that can be Velcroed shut or tied open, reinforced seams and extra fabric wherever the material touches the poles, and a sod cloth of extra material at the bottom to keep water from leaking inside. The 13 x 20 tent can fit 7-8 people inside with a wood stove and 9-10 inside without, and it can be purchased from Elk Mountain’s website starting from $995. If you want a group tent that you can rely on for the rest of your life, this tent is worth it!

It is also remarkably simple to set up, and it should only take 5 minutes to do so.
