At first glance, the material seems to be excellent. The canvas is still at the Amish tarp shop being stitched into a teepee. Time will tell how it works but it seems to be just the ticket. Thanks.
It remains to be seen how well the cover will hold up to Michigan winters. Ordered 50 yds of sunforger 10.10 and an additional 20 yds to finish the cover. Original order was not the fire retardent treated material, was quickly replaced by the friendly staff with the right stuff. The material was easy to work with and the cover looks great.
I would love to review this product again after the coming winter although I think it will do well. I will be happy to recommend this product to the many people who inquired about it as soon as I see how well it holds up.
I found your prices to be the best I found on the Internet.
Thanks for your great service.
You can tell at a glance, this is good canvas.
Solid, tight weave, strong. Everything I needed it to be!
I purchased this canvas to make sides for my tent. These are by far the best sides I could ever have, they do not flop around in the wind and it keeps the water out. The fire retardant is required at some of the shows I do, even though I do not use this tent for cooking, it meets the requirements for all the areas I have been.
was referred by a friend who made a pavilion out of this CanVas15 years ago, never leaks and is awesome canvas.
Ordered 60 yards of the Sunforger 10.10 oz duck with fire retardant in natural beige in the 60 inch width. Great price and great product. Is slightly thicker than my estimate and considerably tougher. Wonderful stuff! Easily sewn on any good machine and Gutermann heavy duty polyester thread. Our applications are covers for geodesic domes designed for a well-known desert art/music )'( festival, and even in large, long sections this stuff is easy to work with. The staff at Big Duck were excellent too, patiently answering many questions about arcane product details and making excellent suggestions that saved considerable expense. Will be ordering again soon, and have recommended the "Duckies" to several other dome builders.
The canvas quality and pricing were excellent. Quick shipment. Would definitely do business with you again.
I called and spoke with a representative that suggested this product for replacing the old canvas on our pop-up camper as it is used by manufacturers of canvas wall tents. The order was shipped promptly and the price is the best we could find. After completing the fabrication we put it to the test. The canvas held up in heavy rain like a dream. Now 2 months later, no sign of mildew. Thanks Big Duck Canvas!!!
