Conical Tent

$754.00$1,053.00

The design for this structure is taken from tents used in almost every area and era of history. The conical shape is documented as having been used from Sweden to Italy and can be seen in sketches of Henry VIII’s camp and photos of the Zulu campaign. Original references define the tent as a “single pole, single canvas tent”-a true historical “one pole”! The French Infantry in 1753 assigned these tents to eight men and Mr. Sibley was so taken with them, that he modified the peak and put his own name on the design. — The fascination for the style seems to be its trans portability and its lack of guy lines in a camp setting. The troops that were issued these tents were expected to sleep with their feet to the center pole, lying like the spokes of a wheel. While not affording a great deal of walk around space, the entire floor was made usable. — Improvements and modifications were made over the years with the addition of walls and vents. The plus side of walls is the added head room they contribute, the negative being the need for guy lines and their space requirements. Vents were added to the peak area, especially in the late 19th century tents used in Africa. — Conicals are available in 10.10 oz white Sunforger flame, Tan or Suntan. Samples available upon request. Mud Flaps are included on all conicals.

the British Conical is: 8′ Height x 13′ Diameter
British Sahara is 10’x13′
French Word War 1 is 9’x16′
U.S. 1889 Conical 10’x16′

MUD FLAPS are standard on all walls. The standard width on the mud flap is 10″. Some vendors have requested we remove the mud flaps so as to allow walls to be more easily put up or taken down without moving poles, because on square and rectangular marquees the perimeter poles do rest on the mud flap. Some customers go with the segmented mud flaps if they want the protection and convenience. We are happy to do this.

if you will be attaching an awning, wind ropes, or finials, you will need a metal grommet (or 2) in the peak of your tent through which the pins can run

All doors on Our tents come with tie closures, but we can substitute loops and wooden toggle closures.
