The Harrier 6SATC uses the advanced air tube system, which allows the tent to be pitched as one full unit, from one inflation point. Additionally, the air system, features bracer support beams to increase the strength and stability of the tent. The striped inner tent adds a homely and stylish interior design, whilst also sleeping six people in a 2 + 2 + 2 configuration. Furthermore the use of polycotton makes the tent more versatile for several weather conditions, whether camping in wet weather or hot weather. Cotton is naturally more waterproof than polyester, making for a better tent fabric, and also adapts to hot weather far better, keeping the tent cooler in warm conditions.

|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.
