Canvas Tent Breathability
Humidity is the most critical factor in environmental comfort for humans. Humidity impacts sweat evaporation which is how the human body regulates temperature. Unlike plastic tents, canvas allows small moisture particles from breath, sweat, and cooking to escape directly through the tent fabric. Keeping you dry and comfortable in any environment.
Plastic Tent Breathability
Non-breathable vapor-impermeable plastic fabric prevents moisture from sweat and breath from escaping the tent. High humidity means sweat won’t evaporate, making it feel even hotter (or colder) inside than outside. Plastic tents don’t breathe; they rely on vents to circulate moist air out and draw fresh air in. These vents then need to be covered by rain flys to keep water out. Silly.
