Do I need to season my canvas bell tent?

On receiving your bell tent we do recommend ‘seasoning’the tent, which involves pitching the tent and hosing it down, thoroughly soaking the seams and allowing the fibres of the canvas to expand and the waterproofing agent to soak into the canvas making the bell tent completely waterproof.

With time the waterproofing agent will wash away and will need to be reapplied. There are many waterproofing agents on the market.
