SIBLEY 600 TWIN PRO – Canvas Tent
The Pro is our high-performance bell tent. Made with improved heavy-duty materials, sewn-in mesh door, and a rugged zip in/out groundsheet with the ability to roll up the side walls. The 600 Twin is ideal for 4 glampers on queen beds and a full living room set up or as many as 10 campers on sleeping pads. The dual centre poles and oval shape provide ample ‘pacing space’.

Following the popularity of the Sibley Ultimate Series cotton canvas bell tents, we received requests from customers seeking all the same luxurious features but in a heavy-duty package for more demanding applications such as multiday festival camping, glamping, tent rentals, basecamps, bushcraft shelter, survival, long-term use, and extreme weather conditions in all 4 seasons.
In response to those requests, CanvasCamp returned to the drawing board and developed the Pro Series. The floor is thicker. The canvas is more durable. The poles are stronger. Even the screen material, guy ropes, and stakes are beefier. These exclusive features and improved materials have made the CanvasCamp Pro series the highest quality and most popular Sibley (Bell) tent to date.
Twin Bells and Oval Floor Plan
The 600 Twin is a mash-up of two bell tents connected with a ridge pole. The unique oval shape of creates two “wings” with a central living room area. The steep angle of the canvas and cathedral-like ceilings of the Twin provide ample ‘pacing space’ and a roomy interior.
Two people are required to raise the dual centre poles. The oval shape and multifaceted structure necessitate even and taut tension on each and every guy line. As the tent settles and shifts on the ground in the breeze it is important to re-tension the guy lines as necessary. Due to the weight and size of the canopy, any amount of snow or ice accumulation can structurally compromise your tent.
Our Pro series groundsheets are thick, thermally welded, 650g/m² ripstop PVC. Completely water and vapour impenetrable, the ‘bathtub style’ floor rises 10cm 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 tailgate-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 steel poles have internal spring loaded wires that guide the pole sections together for quick and easy assembly. The centre pole has a welded lanyard ring which can be used to hang an inner tent or chandelier. The 600 Twin has dual centre poles with a horizontal crossbar requiring two people to raise the canvas.
Dual A-frame Doors
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 setup and fold together for a fast takedown 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. The 600 Twin Pro is equipped with a detachable no-seem mesh door for the front entrance for maximum ventilation and bug protection. 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 or can provide covered canvas bridge between two Sibleys. 600 Twin can be arranged in conjunction with other Sibley’s to create a multiple room tent.
Windows and Vents
Every Sibley comes complete with windows and vents covered in no-see-um mesh to keep the bugs out while providing ventilation and airflow. Our half moon windows have the 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.
In addition to the six half moon screen windows, the Twin has a large A-frame supported picture window opposite the second entrance.
Durable Guy Lines and Tensioners
First time set up is a breeze with 5mm corded nylon rope with UV resistant technology pre-attached to the tent and threaded through our tensioners. Plastic tensioners prevent edges from cutting into the guy lines and prolong the life of your tent.
Steel Stakes and Pegs
Especially designed for hard and rocky ground, our Pro stakes are made from the same high-quality nickel plated steel our poles are made from. Angled and serrated stakes are welded securely to a T hook offering the most secure guy line attachment to date. Our groundsheet pegs are designed for easy insertion and removal from the average earth. 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.
Our 360g/m² army duck canvas is our heaviest and most durable canvas, but it’s not all about the weight. Our proprietary PRO treatment adds additional waterproofing to the natural water resistance of canvas, along with mould and UV resistance. PRO canvas is designed for heavy use and extreme climates. Repairable and retreatable, a properly maintained PRO can last for years and years. Double stitched seams throughout.
Cotton canvas provides a natural waterproofing and breathability. Cotton fibres 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®.
All of our tents are easily adaptable to fit a modular stove jack for a tent stove. Proper stove placement is dependent on stove size, desired temperature, and intended use; thus we provide you with the advice and systems to place a stove in the best location for you. Simply cut a hole in your desired flu exit location and screw on the stove jack. Not for use with open fire pits. We encourage you to be vigilant about fire safety and are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. CanvasCamp cannot be held liable for any damage or injury to persons or property resulting from the use or misuse of fire or flammable materials in or around our tents.
