Stakes for securing the Inner Tent to the ground when the tent is pitched without its groundsheet
matching canvas carry bag.
All Inner Tents feature full-height double-doors, each with it's own zippered screen and canvas privacy doors. This allows either side to be completely open, closed with just the screen material, or completely closed with the canvas door for complete privacy. The 500 Inner Tent Wall model also features a removable zippered canvas divider wall creating 2 separate compartments. The walls of the Inner Tent do not contact the the Sibley itself, thereby creating dead air space between the two. This layer of insulation keeps your sleeping area both cooler in hot weather, and warmer in cold weather; literally, a tent-within-a-tent!
At 3" tall, the attached 10.6oz/yd PVC waterproof-bathtub floor gives Deluxe Ultimate double-protection from water ingress, and allows Standard series owners the option of a PVC floor in

of their tent. If used without the factory ground sheet, Inner Tents have their own stake loops; Standard series Sibley users can still have an earthen floor in

of the tent for stacking firewood, muddy boots, for cooking, or just enjoying the grass in the shade.
Made from ultralight 2.4oz/yd cotton canvas, the Inner Tent is both compact and easy to use. The Inner Tent can be installed by 1 person in under 5 minutes, so you can leave it packed away until bedtime. At a peak height of 6'7", the Inner Tent drapes from the lanyard ring on the center pole, and attaches to the side walls of the Sibley by toggles provided on both tents. The toggles are located so that you can still roll the side walls up on your Ultimate Sibley while having a fully enclosed space to relax in. The Inner Tent can be installed in multiple locations, with 2 zippered windows allowing access to the Sibley's windows, and 4 convenient organizer pockets to keep your most important items within reach.
There Ultimate groundsheets are durable, thermally welded, 15.9oz/yd ripstop PVC. Completely water and vapor impenetrable, the 'bathtub style' floor rises 4 inches high to keep you dry even in standing water. Using a heavy duty size 10 zipper to attach the sidewall to the groundsheet, you can unzip the floor to roll up the canvas walls for maximum ventilation, or remove the groundsheet entirely for transport, storage, cleaning, or to enjoy the grass or sand beneath your feet. A tail gate style system of secure hooks and eyes allows you to drop the bathtub wall near the door and peg it flat to prevent tripping and facilitate easy cleaning.
Spring Loaded Poles
Our durable nickel plated steal poles have internal spring loaded wires that guide the pole sections together for quick and easy assembly. The center pole has a welded lanyard ring which can be used to hang an inner tent or chandelier.
A-frame Door
The Sibley's signature A-frame door allows for easy entry and exit, and holds the canvas at 90 degrees from the ground preventing rain from falling into the tent when moving in and out. Spring loaded poles snap together quickly for easy set up and fold together for fast take down and organized storage. The floor is equipped with two stirrups which hold the foot poles of the A-frame securely in place. The top of the A-frame door is equipped with a pin that sits in a grommet at the peak of the door ensuring proper placement. A rain cap is then placed over the pin and grommet to keep rain from running down the poles. The canvas door zips together vertically and along the bathtub floor. Each side of the door is equipped with loops and ropes to neatly tie back the canvas and/or mesh doors to hold them open when not in use.
Every Sibley is compatible with a Sibley Connector, a bow-tie shaped attachment that can be used as an awning.
Windows and Vents
Every Sibley comes complete with windows and vents covered in no-seeum mesh to keep the bugs out while providing ventilation and airflow. There half moon windows have zip up covers to allow you to customize your desired level of ventilation and privacy. Each window is equipped with loop fasteners to neatly hold the covers when the windows are unzipped.
Durable Guy Lines and Tensioners
There Ultimate series comes with 3mm guy ropes that will need to be tied on before your first pitch. Check out our assembly instructions at the top of this page to get a feel for the initial set up process. Plastic tensioners prevent edges from cutting into the guy lines and prolong the life of your tent.
Steel Stakes and Pegs
The Ultimate stakes and groundsheet pegs are designed for easy insertion and removal from average earth, like grass or forest floor. For pegging a groundsheet to especially hard or rocky soil, D60 nails are cheap, easily sourced, and can be placed and removed with a standard claw hammer.
Ultimate Canvas
There 9.4oz/yd army duck canvas on the Ultimate series is the perfect balance of performance and breath-ability. There proprietary Ultimate treatment enhances the natural water resistance of canvas, along with a light UV and mold resistance. The Ultimate is ideal for casual camping in mild to moderate environments for four season use. Double stitched, flat-felled roof and side wall seams, seam gussets, and double-layer construction at all stress points create a bell tent that is as durable as it is beautiful.
Cotton canvas provides a natural waterproofing and breathability. Cotton fibers swell when damp, the tight weave prevents rain from penetrating and the surface tension of moisture on the outside combined with the angle of the canopy allows water to run off. Moisture held in the air on the inside is still able to escape directly through the fabric, keeping internal humidity low and mitigating condensation.
Our canvas is exclusively 100% cotton. Cotton is made from the seed hair of this hardy and drought tolerant plant. Sustainable, renewable, and one of the most biodegradable fabrics on earth. Our canvas is a soft, natural, earthy beige that glows inside and out with natural or artificial light. CanvasCamp is the only tent manufacture to carry the official Seal of Cotton.
