Excellent Tent

As an archaeology student I lived in a Springbar Tent for two summers in the Sangre de Christo Mtns in NM. The summers there featured sharp temperature swings from high 80s-90s during the day to 30s-40s at night. Short but torrential rain storms were common and occurred almost daily. The tents by that time weren’t new, they had been used by who knows how many classes before us but they were well maintained and functioned perfectly. We were always dry and comfortable. They breathed so they didn’t become saunas in the heat, kept the wind and rain out, and were comfortable to live in. I loved the height which I wasn’t used to in other more packable tents I’d owned. So now a decade later I needed a larger tent for my growing family and remembered those Springbars from field school. After my initial sticker shock I remembered how durable, reliable and comfortable they were. So I bit the bullet. Super happy with my purchase. My wife (who attended that same field school) and our two boys love the tent. We’ve only had it out a few times so far but the feel, fit, and finish are as good as those old reliable ones we remembered. Set up is so easy even for one person. I even managed to get it rolled up tight enough to fit back in the bag! (The bag and packaging in general is well thought out). I highly recommend this tents. With proper care and maintenance I expect I’ll be handing it down to my boys. I don’t think we’ll ever need another but if we do I’d buy another in a heartbeat. Now if you’re backpacking this won’t be for you, it’s heavy. If space is a concern, again, probably not the tent for you. Maybe the smaller versions? Can’t speak to that. But if weight isn’t a concern I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better tent.

Best Canvas Tent on the Market

This is the second Springbar tent I have owned, the first went with the former wife. There appear to be some changes made, all for the better, which has caused the prices to increase. That being said, these latest versions are seem to be more "complete" as there are no other items needed, except possibly a ground tarp.

I've woken up to 6" of snow on the roof without issue, been in gale force winter storms in the Big Horn Mountains where the tent was nearly laid flat by the wind, been in storms on Lake Powell where every other tent on the beach was blown away or shredded, and been in everything in between and it never failed.

Springbar has an irritating marketing model whereby one must sit by the computer all day waiting for Springbar to send out emails to everyone waiting to buy one. If you miss the email by an hour or two, the tents are sold out. I don't understand why a simple backorder system couldn't be implemented where one could pay for the tent they wanted and simply wait until their time came up and they received there tent.

As it is, one must wait for weeks to be notified, then hope they aren't too late and that they color they wanted is in stock.

Other than the bad marketing model, these are well worth the wait.

Keep up the good work.

Had the Family Camper model for over ten years, and it's as good new, even after sand storms, thunderstorms, and being pitched in the middle of a flood channel (in retrospect not my best idea). Now we're downsizing to the smaller footprint of the Traveler. I'd have been happy if nothing had changed over the decades, but every difference I see is an upgrade! Can't wait to pitch it in all sorts of ill-advised places.
