In the market for an instant cabana or outdoor shower pavilion? Beckel Canvas Products, a Portland, Oregon–based second-generation family-owned company, makes a ruggedly stylish line of tents from marine-finish army duck.

N.B. This is the same company that makes the Eena line of totes, bags, and zippered cases, profiled in Monocle magazine last year and available from Canoe in Portland, Oregon.

Above: Beckel Canvas’ Shower /Latrine Tent measures 6 by 6 feet and is made from 10 oz. marine-finish Army duck. It features entry zippers at each end and a steel frame; $575 at Beckel Canvas. N.B. Beckel also offers a similar but smaller Outhouse Tent for $175.95.

Above: Canoe in Portland, Oregon, carries the full line of 20-ounce canvas Eena bags; prices start at $48 for a tote.
