IT IS A SLEEVE THAT THE END OF THE POLES FIT INTO TO MAKE THEM STURDY AND SECURE AND ADDS RIGIDITY TO BAG

Tim Vibert at Empire disposals and trading has canvas tarps and tent bags on his website. Quite reasonable too...



The bags Tim Vibert sells are WWII-era valises for a 16x16 tent inner. At $15 each,, they are a very good price too.

Understandably, these 75-odd year old bags had a bit of mildew-spotting which I removed by rubbing the bags down inside and out with undiluted white vinegar applied with a sponge and then drying them out on the line for a couple of days.



The bags fit 14x14 canvas perfectly. They aren't correct, but they will certainly do the job.

Greg,

The bag you have shown are a terrific bag (and cheap) and should out live us all. It`s a great idea to use them for tent storage.

I have a 11x11 in one of the bags being sort, I`ll post some pictures of it when out of lockdown and i can get up to Deniliquin.

Wait out.

Mick
