We’ve engineered the 16-foot LiT Fernweh canvas bell tent to be both a beauty and a beast. Quickly pop it up in your backyard or pitch it for a season on your property as a cozy, waterproof, escape from home. 

The brute strength of the thick-plied double weave 11.5 oz (390 gsm) military grade, Army duck, 100% natural cotton canvas, will hold up in all seasons and last for generations.  The natural light-colored fabric provides an elegance that can’t be matched by another 5M bell tent in the wild. We like to say it’s adurable (adorable + durable).

    Love it!!!

    My experience with the Life in Tents team has been nothing short of fantastic. The tent itself is everything I expected: sturdy, well made, attractive and so functional. I’ve furnished it with a king size mattress, some rag rugs on the floor, and a wicker chair. My niece just told me it looks like a fairy tale. The tent arrived quickly after placing my order, and the team is wonderful with email support.

    Awesome!

    Our experience with life in tents was epic. The customer service is of a quality we don’t see very often anymore. I will recommend life in tents to anybody interested in purchasing a good quality tent from a great company.

    Tent Review

    I have rented the tent in the past so was familiar with the set up. I tested the water proof quality of the canvas with my hose and the tent stayed dry inside. I gave it a good soaking. First time set up took me a little long (75 minutes) but that will improve. Great product!

    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts Mark! Glad to hear that the tent is working out so far. The first time will take a bit longer for set up since the guy line ropes need to get tied on. But with experience you will master getting it up quick!

    Perfect Glamping Birthday

    Customer service was awesome. Tent was delayed because of FedEx issue Joe send me an tent overnight so I’d be sure to have it for my event. The tent was gorgeous and big enough for 5 teens.
