Reasons Why Canvas Tents Are Better
You've heard of canvas tents, and you may be wondering about them. Are they out of date? In the past, there really was no other tent to choose from! Tents made of nylon or other synthetic materials reduce weight, a priority for backpackers.

1.Sun protection

Canvas is a thicker material than the synthetic materials used in most tents today. As a result, less sunlight enters the tent interior.
While it is still important to choose as many shade camps as possible, canvas tents will provide more sun protection (if needed) than light synthetic tents.
Also, if you're a light sleeper, you'll easily wake up when it's light - canvas tents have the added advantage of being a thicker material and less exposed to the sun, so they can stay dark for longer!
The best canvas tents not only protect you from the sun but because they are made of harder fabrics, they last longer in daylight than thinner synthetic nylon/polyester tents.
Sunburn is one of the easiest ways to damage a tent. Once a synthetic nylon/polyethylene tent suffers serious daylight damage, you need to start investing in new tents. Canvas tents are designed to last longer and to protect against ultraviolet rays from the sun for longer.
Canvas tents are not invincible, of course, and nothing can withstand the sun forever, so it is still important to camp in as shady a place as possible.

2.Canvas tents keep cooler

One of the amazing things about modern houses is insulation. We take it for granted! But because of the insulation, our homes can stay cooler than the heat outside, or cooler than the cold outside.
Canvas tents are made of thicker, heavier materials. Sometimes they are made of cotton, and sometimes they are made of synthetic materials or a mixture of both.
In any case, breathable canvas tent can be much cooler inside than synthetic tents because they are thicker and therefore provide more sun protection. Now, any tent that is directly exposed to the sun will eventually heat up to the same temperature, but this could mean that you can use canvas tents for longer in the morning than synthetic tents.
Even if the air has a chance to heat up inside a canvas tent, it will always be cool and comfortable without the sun shining on you.

3.Canvas tents keep warm

Canvas tents are kept cool in the summer for the same reasons that they can stay warmer than they are outside. The heat from the inside prevents the tent from escaping, making canvas tents more comfortable than synthetic tents in cold weather.

4.Canvas tent longevity

As we have already mentioned, canvas tents are designed for longer camping periods.
                    
One of the main advantages of canvas tents is their durability. They are exposed to more sun, wind, and rain, and are much more resilient to human wear and tear on their homes.
Properly kept canvas tents (completely dry) can last for decades. The life of any tent of any material depends on its maintenance. However, canvas tents will last longer than thinner synthetic nylon/polyethylene tents simply because they have the properties of a thick fabric canvas tent.

5.Wind protection

Canvas tents provide excellent stability in strong wind conditions. It's still important to make sure you've pulled out the tent and picked the right spot, but your canvas tent won't swing or flap.
The durability and size of canvas tents make them ideal for securing furniture, beds, carpets, and other amenities commonly found in flat land.
