Springbar USA Tents are cut & sewn by hand in our Salt Lake City workshop. It’s a tradition 60 years in the making. These tents are an investment, and it may require some patience to get one, but you’ll love it forever.
Springbar Imported Tents are designed to deliver the best quality canvas tent at the best price possible. We believe our Highline and Classic Jack series tents offer the best dollar for dollar value of any canvas tent available today.
In terms of performance, it’s hard to tell the difference between our USA tents and our imported tents—both are quality and we stand by every one.
Since 1961 we have been proud to manufacture the original Springbar® Canvas Tent in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Our Springbar USA Tents are built to weather damn near any storm and with care will last a lifetime, but there’s also a lot of history and nostalgia in a Springbar. Cut and sewn by hand, using traditional techniques developed by Jack a half-century ago, these tents are the real deal—a stubborn holdout from a past era of mom & pop American makers.
Over the last sixty years we’ve seen a lot of change, along with times of boom and times of bust. But we’ve always found a way forward. After all of it, we’re still here making Springbar® Tents in Salt Lake City. It’s a testament to good design, good quality, and good customers.
A Springbar USA tent is an investment, and it may require some patience to get one, but you’ll love it forever.
We’re also clear eyed to the reality of living and working in a global economy, and we like to compete. Meeting demand for Springbar® Tents solely with our domestic production has always been a challenge. And seeing that demand shortage filled by imported knock-offs is something that’s never sat well with us. If anyone is going to build an imported Springbar Tent it’s going to be us, and we make it a point to do it better than anyone else.
In 2015 we launched the Highline Series of Springbar Tents, designed with Jack Kirkham’s original patterns and techniques, and cut and sewn by our factory partners in China. Years of hard work and significant investment went into the effort—developing our own canvas water-repellency finish to deliver the same performance as Sunforger; sourcing the same Coats thread we use on domestic tents; constant field testing and fine-tuning to achieve the performance we require—the result is a truly quality tent that we believe offers the best dollar for dollar value of any canvas tent available today. It’s hard to tell a difference in terms of performance between our USA tents and our imported tents—both are quality and we stand by every one.
Our import line has since grown to include the Highline Series, Classic Jack Series, and Leisure Ports—and we work hard to ensure that each of them uphold the Springbar reputation for durability and performance in every way.
The bottom line: Every Springbar® Tent, regardless of where it’s made, is cut & sewn by a skilled craftsperson and inspected to meet our quality standards. We proudly stand by every tent with the Springbar® mark, and we back it up with our Satisfaction Guarantee.
