An addition for the Hornet 6SA, the dual protector blocks damage to your tent caused by weather such as UV rays, bird mess and other overhead damages, preventing issues with the tent itself. Other benefits have been incorporated into the dual protector as well, such as a side canopy, which can be placed over either side of the tent. The 'dual' aspect comes from the dual layering of the protector - one side is black, which absorbs heat to counteract cold weather, while the other is silver to reflect sun rays to provide cooling in a warmer climate.

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.
