Canvas tents have been becoming more and more popular recently and it may be difficult to follow the development on the market and notice new models. This is why we have prepared this list with best rated canvas tents collected from various Amazon departments. All these models are true Amazon bestsellers.
Why using a canvas tent
The answer to this question is easy, a synthetic tent can never be as pleasant as a canvas tent. The atmosphere in a canvas tent is cooler than in a synthetic tent, these tents are naturally breathable so you do not have to depend heavily on vents and mesh openings like in the case of synthetic tents.
Canvas tents are also usually waterproof and this is because of the natural swelling of the cotton when it becomes wet. But they are also heavy, be ready for this, so do not plant to carry a canvas tent anywhere. A heavy canvas needs a strong frame, so you typically have steel used, hence the weight.
In some cases, cotton is mixed with polyester and this is commonly described as a poly-cotton tent, with the features from both materials. Canvas tents are normally very durable, and mixing with polyester makes them even more strong and durable.
You will notice in the descriptions of these canvas tents that they are described as 4-season tents. This is not an exaggeration, they are cool in summer time yet canvas gives a bit of insulation in the winter time. You will see that some also come with one or even two pipe jacks for a wood burning stove, this is something you might want to use if you are camping in winter.
Built from heavier and bulkier cotton canvas, these tents are also less noisy than thin synthetic materials and they also provide a bit of sound insulation, so you can sleep better in such a canvas tent. If you would rather have something with instant setup, please check our list with best pop up camping tents.
These tents are tall and with steep walls, so they are suitable for camping cots, sleeping off the ground is usually much more comfortable than on the pad and on the ground.
What types of cotton canvas tents exist
You will find them in all shapes, they can be dome-style (those are a bit rare), but more frequently they are cabin style, tunnel style, and also bell-shaped tents. You will see some of these examples here in the list.
How about price
These tents are expensive, no doubt about this. But those are durable materials and supported by a strong steel frame, built for a lifetime. Buying such a tent is an investment, but they are worth the money. Nevertheless, if you need something far more affordable, it is best to check our separate list with Coleman tents. Note also that we have a separate list with bell canvas tents.
How about storage and maintenance
Canvas tents are far more bulky than synthetic so naturally you will need more space to transport and to store at home. Make sure that the canvas is completely dry before you store it at home for a longer period of time.
