Hya guys...I'm new to the forum

I have a trip coming up and have been trying to find somewhere that sells French Army F1 tents in cotton canvas (in nice condition). Lots of nylon tents available, but all I can find for canvas are reviews. Does anyone have any suggestions where I could look? Time is short, I need it by the 28th August!

Many thanks

Ah, sorry just realised these are the nylon version F2 not the F1....good luck with your search.

Perhaps a Vango force 10 instead?

As your Varusteleka ad. says, the cotton ones are no longer available.

Shame as the nylon ones seem to leak badly, contrary to what Varusteleka says in their ad. (I think they've got their info. back to front, there?)
I have a cotton one and have found it more than capable of standing up to a good summer storm. (surprised me to be honest!)
Also they are surprisingly light and compact to pack. About 3.5 kg all up.
Indeed an F10 is wonderful...but a lot heavier.

Just found this: very rare to include flysheet....but a helluva price!
