Springbar Highline Canvas Tent

Jun 21, 2017

There is a lot to recommend our modern-day tents. They’re lightweight, easy to pack, and a cinch to assemble. All the same, it is hard not to feel a little bit of nostalgia for the bulkier, roomier tents of decades past. Thankfully for us, the old school tent is making a comeback thanks to Springbar Canvas Tents.

Rather than nylon, these tents use a 10 and 8-ounce mildew-resistant cotton duck canvas. Not only does this old school material look better, but it actually manages to be both water resistant and breathable as well. That means your tent doesn’t turn into a stuffy sauna while you wait for rain to pass. Another key difference from modern tents is the amount of space this thing has. They come in two sizes – a 10 by 14 foot configuration, or 10 by 10 setup. Both of which come equipped with a roll-out awning. Naturally you’d think that with such a big size these would be hard to assemble, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Both sizes are designed to be pitched by just one person. If ever there was evidence that they didn’t have everything wrong back in the 1960s, this is it.
