I thought this too and back in the days of 100% cotton canvas I'd say it was so but with these new high density waterproof poly canvas's I wonder.
I like the feel and the smell of canvas (does this new stuff smell?), also it's shade qualities but it is much heavier. In the balckwolf range they are nearly twice as heavy, though to be fair the canvas tents do have a thicker floor in them.
Bugger it, I already have an elcheapo poly dome tent so if I'm going to treat myself to a new one I might as well go the whole hog.
The extra few hundred bucks will soon be forgotten once I've used it a couple of times but not spending that few extra hundred won't ever be.
If I can't smell the Eucalypts its not home.
