Floor Options

The Shackleton Tent bathtub floor consists of an 11oz vinyl floor which comes up 6" on all 4 sides and zips onto the canvas shell.  The spike rings are sewn into the reinforcements in the corners and sides of the floor, so while the floor may be removed for cleaning, etc, the tent cannot be effectively spiked to the ground without the floor attached. 

The removable floor has been re-engineered in the past year.  It consists of a sod-cloth skirt which zips onto the tent shell in the same position as the bathtub floor. The sod-cloth skirt has grommets in the four corners and in the sides as well as webbing loops that spike to the ground.  The floor panel itself is a 10oz vinyl coated mesh with webbing loops that correspond to the grommets in the skirt.  When using the floor, these loops are passed through the grommets and spiked to the ground. 

The bathtub floor is a more waterproof and critter-proof option, while the removable floor is better at handling dirt and wet boots. The great thing about our new design is that the two floor systems are now completely interchangeable. This key factor makes the Shackleton Tent one of the most versatile tents on the market.

More Info

With signature design improvements that make Ellis Canvas Tents truly unique, this is the ultimate 4 season tent. The angled-out front and rear doors provide ease of entry and additional interior space. The construction of the canopy itself can handle heavy tensioning along the main axis of the tent, while secondary corner guy-lines create an exceptionally stable shelter even in the most extreme conditions. The Stove Jack is installed near the peak of the tent near the center pole allowing the majority of your stove pipe to remain inside the tent for warmth and added stability against the wind. Choose from our Vinyl zip-in bathtub floor, or our proprietary removable floor system. Side zippers on either model allow easy access to firewood or entry for your k-9 companion. Large screen doors and windows along with peak vent allow ample ventilation in warm weather, or in winter when your stove is cranked up and keeping things overly cozy. No matter where you roam, this tent will not let you down.

Amazingly easy to set up big tent!

Such a great design. I was able to set the 11x11 up inside of 15 minutes including a couple deadman anchors. We are looking forward ski weekends and just the simple fun of visiting around the stove. This is truly a great family tent. Great work at Ellis!

Perfect 4 season tent

I have been looking for a large, 4 season tent, for sometime now. I have looked at both Snowtrekker and Esker tents. During the process of buying a new stove, I was introduced to specifically to the Shackleton tent. This tent was unique because it afforded placement of the stove in the center of the tent which allowed most all of the stove pipe to remain inside the tent resulting in more effecient use of the stove's pipes and the heat they give off. One could argue that Esker and other similar tents offer stove pipe placement in the center of the tent as well. While I agree with this, the design of the Shackleton tent still gives you more head room and area to stand up compared to other tents. I ordered the 11'x11' Shackleton tent. The first thing you will notice about the tent is the sheer quality of the stitching and reinforced points on it. It is made to take a beating. The quality warrants the little extra weight that this tent weighs compared to other tents. The support staff is phenomenal! I spoke with Denis via email and once on the phone. He bent over backwards to answer all of my questions about the tent and so far I have run out of questions to ask. I received the tent in about three days once I ordered it. I can recommend this tent to anyone looking for a top-tier 4 season tent! Too bad this review has a character limit of 1500; I wanted to list all the pros of this tent. The review I wanted to post had about 4300 words in it.

I accidentally ordered the wrong floor to the tent I wanted. After I set it up, I realized what I did wrong. But the tent is very roomy, easy to set up, and even easier to pack back up. I’m still waiting on my correct tent to come back in since we had to send this one back.
