Custom Sizes

All Shade Clouds can be customized. A common request is to have the sides made longer. We call those “sideburns”and they come as a 36” (full) or 18” (half) added length to each side of the shelter. Their best use is when you are looking for added protection from the cold as they reduce the amount of air coming in through the sides. Contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Materials

Which material is best for you? Your decision will be based on how often you will use your Shade Cloud, the climate in which it will be used, how much you have to spend and whatever strikes your fancy. There are many factors that will affect the longevity of your shelter but here are some guidelines:
12 ounce duck cotton canvas
This is similar to the cotton canvas used to make Carhartt clothing. It is untreated, heavy-duty canvas that comes in a variety of colors. This is a good choice for shelters that are put up from time to time throughout the year.
10.10 ounce Sunforger
Sunforger is a treated, very tightly woven, preshrunk canvas. Most commercial tipis and wall tents are made of this fabric. The 10.10 oz Sunforger is a lighter weight cotton canvas available in Natural, an off-white color. Sunforger is a good choice if you plan to have your shelter up for many months of the year and especially in wetter climates.
12.63 ounce Sunforger
See the above description of Sunforger. The 12.63 oz Sunforger is the heavier version and is available in Natural, Khaki, Suntan, and Pearl Grey. The colored Sunforger is dyed with mineral pigments that make it slightly more U.V. resistant than the natural, un-dyed fabric. 12.63 oz. canvas will last longer than the 10.10 oz. canvas.
