This Dual Protector provides extra peace of mind for owners of the Outwell Cruiser 6AC, providing an extra barrier against overhead damage and weather discoloration. Outwell's innovative team have also added complementary functions to make this more than just protection. One facing is silver, which reflects heat away from your tent when facing up, whilst another layer is dark, which absorbs heat into your tent when placed facing upwards. Through this, you can control the climate of your tent. An integrated side canopy provides further reason to purchase this addition.

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.

Most tent structure are either Airbeam or Poled in design, both have advantages and disadvantages. Air tents are quicker to pitch, but more expensive when compated to traditional pole style tents. Some tents are hybrids, and combine poles and air technologies.
Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.
