5m Protech Bell Tent



$1 of your purchase goes to charity of your choice with i=Change®


The 5m diameter Protech bell tent is spacious and airy, ideal for family camping, luxurious glamping (glamorous camping) for couples, as a chill out area at an event or for a workshop. The central pole measures 3m tall allowing plenty of standing space, a huge circumference and a generous floor area.

 Made from a heavier duty cotton canvas and heavy duty PVC groundsheet, the poles, pegs, guy ropes and zips are all heavier duty and longer lasting. The canvas, despite being treated with a waterproofing agent and anti-mould treatment remains breathable and malleable, making the tent easy to set up and any creases in the canvas drop out quickly and easily. 

5M Protech Review – three years on…

“Hi Lucy,

This photo was taken today at our block in SE Tasmania. 5M Protech purchased from you in 2018. We basically put it up for the whole period of daylight savings (ie, 6 months). It’s nearing the end of ‘season 3’ and the tent is as strong as ever! We apply a protectant to the canvas each year (using a roller), set the kids beds up (4 of) and away we go. 50 knot winds and rainfalls Of 60mm in 24 hrs is not a problem! Our tent is raised on plastic palletts from our local tip shop. After Easter we will pack it away dry until next season.

James and Valerie Hannon”

The Protech bell tents are our best selling tents here in Australia.
This tent has the added mesh wall feature which allows the canvas sides to be rolled up during the heat of the day and the mesh wall zipped in place. The mesh wall is always present, on initially rolling the tent out of the back the canvas wall is zipped in place and this allows for easy pitching of the tent. The mesh wall is rolled up and toggled in place along the top of the 60cm walls. Should you decide you want the mesh walls in place the canvas walls are unzipped all the way round to the back, the canvas walls rolled up and toggled away and the mesh walls zip to the same zip of the groundsheet. So the walls are interchangeable, either you have the canvas wall in place or the mesh wall:

For a lighter weight bell tent for casual camping we recommend the use of the Ultimate Bell Tent and for a heavy duty version just excluding the mesh walls (still have the mesh door, windows and vents) the 5m diameter Ultimate PRO Bell Tent.

5m Diameter 100% Breathable Cotton Canvas Bell Tent Ideal Glamping and Camping


  • Heavy duty 100% breathable cotton canvas (360gsm)
  • Heavy duty PVC ground sheet attached to the tent with a zipper. Groundsheet (bucket style) PVC weighs 650 g/m² (i.e. 1.5 lbs/ 10 ft²). (Zip off ground sheet enables the ground sheet to be unzipped and sides rolled up during the day. The zip facilitates the re-attachment of the ground sheet and has a protective cover which ensure rain water will not enter between the ground sheet and the tent. This is much harder to achieve with a separate ground sheet).
