SIBLEY BELL TENT FLY
Burners look no further for a sunshade for bell tents! The Sibley Bell Tent Fly is a lightweight nylon double roof that keeps the blazing sun off your tent. Ideal for cold weather camping as well, the Fly creates a thin dead air space which insulates the tent and helps regulate temperature. Keeping your bell tent cooler during hot days, and warmer during cold nights. The Fly also helps protect your tent from rain and harmful UV rays, extending the life of your tent. The Bell Tent Fly is light and packable and can be pitched as a freestanding shelter or shade with compatible Sibley Pole Sets.
The fly helps regulate the temperature in your bell tent by creating dead air space insulation between the canvas and the fly. This dead air space helps keep your tent cooler in the summer by preventing the sun’s powerful rays from directly hitting your tent. In the winter the dead air space slows heat loss through the canopy. The fly is a must-have for camping in extreme temperatures, like deserts and deep winter.
To take advantage of the insulating properties of the fly, we recommend staking the fly out 30-60cm (1-2 feet) further than your bell tent canopy stakes. You will need an additional set of stakes to accomplish this. Extra stakes required for each Fly Size:
Extra Protection for a Bell Tent:
Although all CanvasCamp tents are waterproof and treated for mold and UV resistance, the Fly acts as a double roof which provides double the protection. Made of lightweight and durable 70D nylon, this second roof keeps rain and snow off of your tent while still allowing the canvas to breathe freely underneath it. Organic material like dead leaves and bird poop can cause stains and mold, the fly makes it easy to keep your tent clean by preventing nature from soiling your canvas in the first place. As a sunshade for your bell tent, the fly blocks 90% of damaging rays from the sun which can erode the protective treatment on your canvas over time.
The Sibley Bell Tent fly is machine washable and can be retreated for waterproofing with a nylon specific solution like Nixwax.
Portable: The bell tent fly is extremely lightweight and packs down into a matching carry bag.
Standalone Sunshade: Although the fly was designed for use with a bell tent, it can be pitched separately as a beautiful bell tent-shaped shelter. A Sibley pole set of compatible size and extra stakes can be purchased separately, or you can simply use the poles and stakes included with your Sibley when your application calls for a lighter faster set up than pitching a bell tent.
