Baker Tent Mark 2 – Slanty

We got Baker Tent mark two up today, one we made for our distributer, Kevin Ruston from Wynnchester Camp and Adventure, still the only one selling the Wild Canvas brand in the UK, except us of course.

We introduced some upgrades to the Baker tent design, like the pole pockets and some different fastenings, but the main thing is that when it rained, the rain was collecting on the porch roof as the porch needed to be the same height as the main tent section, because the side walls double up as doors for the inner tent.

We love it when something does two things and it keeps it versatile: the wall uses the same toggle system, so the wall cord loops can be tied up both places (to the tent or to the porch sides). The toggles allow one to open the wall with one hand, which is nice when you have a torch at night etc.

Mark 2, has the added feature of jointed front poles, allowing 2 heights, so that the roof can be slanted to allow the rain to shed either side and the wall is simply folded up when lower.

Anyway, the nice thing about this mk 2 is……

The Wild Canvas Storm Kettle bag

We were introduced to the storm kettle a little while ago and found it amazing, using very little wood to boil water as quickly as an electric kettle. As we are involved in turning our Wild Canvas brand into a more comprehensive range, we decided to make some bags for these kettles, as a good friend who had one for years, told us that the problem with those is that they come with a nylon carry bag which get trashed with the fire and soot, so our Wild Canvas designer came up with this.

We called the company to talk about these, and ended up making them their own tent.
