The Nevada MP Tent has an option extra of the Roof Protector. The roof protector acts like a groundsheet only it preserves the top of your tent, providing protection from tree sap, bird mess and the sun's UV-radiation. This will keep your tents roof clean and will help keep your tent warmer in winter months and colder in the hot summer months.
There are two sides to the roof protector, having the silver side facing up will reflect the sun keeping your tent cooler, ideal for hot cummer days. Alternatively, having the black side facing up will keep the tent warmer in the colder months, this will also keep light out in a morning acting like the black out windows, allowing for a longer sleep in a morning.

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.
