The Dual Protector is an excellent addition for the Outwell Denver 6, as it makes this high value tent far less susceptible to hazards such as tree sap and bird mess. However, it also carries benefits in its own right. The silver lined side can be placed facing upwards to reflect sun away and maintain cool in the tent. For colder weather, the darker reverse side serves the opposite purpose. A sun canopy is integrated for fine weather, though removable for when it is not needed. Other effects include the reduction of condensation in the tent, making the Dual Protector a great addition to your camping trip.
